The name Pugh is Welsh. The Welsh did not use last names until fairly recently. In Wales one was identified by his father's name, such as James ap Hugh. The ap signifying son of in the Welsh language. When surnames were adopted these tended to be shorted into last names. Ap Howell becoming Powell, ap Rhys becoming Price, and ap Hugh becoming Pugh for example. I have found the name spelled various ways sometimes in the same document. The most common are Pugh, Peugh, and Pew. A number of Quaker Pughs came to PA at the invitation of William Penn and settled at what was called the Welsh Tract in what was then Chester Co. Many of the towns in that area carry Welsh place names. The connections if any between these Pugh is unknown at the present time. Quaker Pughs whose place of origin include: Ellis Pugh of Brithdu near Dolgelley, Co. Merioneth.; Evan, Robert and William Pugh of Bala, Co. Merioneth; and William Pugh of near Dolgelley, Co. Merioneth. Some of these appear as Hugh and ap Hugh in addition to Pugh in early records

Asa Pugh/Peugh born about 1800-03 in Wilkes Co., GA, married 1st in Jasper Co. according to family tradition Peggy Teal (Jasper marriage records show a James Pugh marrying a Margaret Steel on Dec. 21, 1820.

Olive was born about 1800-10 in GA, married 2nd Dec. 4, 1838 Riley G. B. Woolley, apparently died before 1850 in Upson Co., GA. She may have died before July 1841 when James K. Holsey was appointed as the guardian for Asa's children. Asa moved with his father to Jasper Co. In the 1821 Asa Peugh of Martin's District (GMD 248) Jasper Co., GA drew land lot 12, 2 Section of Monroe Co. which became Pike Co. and is now part of Spalding Co. By 1827 he moved to this land which was east of the Roved-Zetella Road north of Rover GA. This is the first time that the spelling Peugh is used and I suspect that he kept the spelling to insure his claim on the land. He gave land for Liberty Church in Pike Co. He drew land in the 1832 land lottery in Cherokee Co. land lot 688, District 2, 1st Section. He was a resident of Bustin's District in Pike Co. at that time. He died after the 1836 tax digest was prepared and before the 1837 index. In Dec. 1841 James K. Holsey sold 1/2 of Asa's Pike Co. land.

Generation 1, John Kinman.
John Kinman May have married Mary who appears as a widow in the 1790 Wilkes Co. GA tax digest and was still living in 1803. His children:
James Kinman remained in IN when father moved to TN.
* James Kinman our ancestor. See generation 2.
David Kinman died 1831. Came to Wilkes Co., GA and later went 1st to Grant Co., KY and then to Pike Co., IN. See his journey song following. His children:
William Kinman found in 1790 Wilkes Co., tax digest.
Levi Kinman born 1789, died 1840. Came to GA and later went to Pike Co. IN
(Note the 1st four children and Mary are found in the 1790 Wilkes tax digest in the same district as Jesse and Jehu Pugh. This area now part of Taliaferro Co.)
James Kinman married Jane, died 1821. A Quaker and traditional father of Elizabeth Kinman who married Jehu Pugh. At this time I do not know much about this person. In the 1793 Wilkes Co. tax digest Jehu Pugh lived next to him. On Aug. 2,1892 he was appointed guardian of Mary and David Mason, orphans of John and Nancy Mason, What if any connection to these Masons is unknown. The Kinman's moved on to Jasper Co. and about 1808 joined the Quaker migration to Indiana. Various family members came from Jasper, Morgan and Greene Co. and ended up around Pike Co. Indiana where James left a will naming the following children:
Betsey (Elizabeth) Kinman married Jehu Pugh. Our ancestor. See Pugh family, generation 4.
James Kinman Jr.
Mary Kinman consent given by father Feb. 26, 1798 to marry Alexander McKeen
Alcey (Nancy ?) Kinman married Robert Pugh, brother of Jehu Pugh. See her family under his listing. (I believe that Alcey might have been misread as Nancy in the will.)
I left my old dwelling, as I do relate.
We traveled northwestward up the Oconee
And crossed the dividing ridge to Chatahoochee.
'Tis not my long journey that troubles me so
Nor leaving Greene County, for what do I owe,
But most that doth grieve me and trouble my mind
Is leaving my relations in Georgia behind.
Farewell my old neighbors, I bid you adieu.
I am going to travel the wilderness through
I am going to travel the desert all through.
So, farewell, old relations, I bid you adieu.
May kind Heaven protect you and guard you through life,
And safely conduct you through troubles and strife,
And when in the tomb your frail bodies do lie
May your souls soar away to sweet mansions on high.
Three days and three nights we were forced to lie.
The rain was descending, the river was high.
At length we got over and our way we could see
So we escaped quite over to the water Coosee.
Our course we did steer to the Ocmulgee
And crossed over the ridge to Conesage.
We crossed over the rived in the evening quite late
And entered the boarder of Tennessee state.
We crossed the Tennessee, we crossed over the Clinch
Pursuing our journey, we resolved not to flinch.
We scaled the high mountain, on summit did stand,
And traveled down the western side to sweet Cumberland.
The rich land of Kentucky we soon had in view.
We crossed over the river, passed Lexington through,
And came on to Eagle the last day of May,
Resigned to the Heavens, contented to Stay.
Composed by David Kinman on his journey from Georgia to Kentucky and sung to his children, Mr. S.F. Kinman of Petersburg, IN sent a copy to James LeConte in 1913 and this copy can be found in the LeConte Collection at the Hargrett Library at the University of Georgia
The McGinty name is also found as Ginity, Maginnity, Mag Fhinneachta and as a derivation Finaghty. It is a Co. Donegal Ireland family name, and found as Ginty and Genty in north Connacht.
I believe that the Pughs and McGintys were acquainted at least as far back as 1790 in Wilkes Co. when John McGinty was in the same district as Jehu Pugh and witnessed, with Jesse Pugh, the will of Martha Stewart in 1791. I also believe that they may have been Quakers. In the 1830 Pike Co. census, John and Josiah McGinty are listed with John being only 14 names from Asa Pugh. Asa sold land to Lewis Borders in 1835. Lewis and his brother Benjamin Borders both married McGintys. I believe that the marriage may have been in the Quaker manner which would explain why it is not found in the county records..

Since the Quaker faith and religious practices affect this family so much, I have decided to add a few words about the Society of Friends or as they are more commonly known Quakers. The Quakers were founded in 1647 by an English preacher, George Fox. They emphasized a direct relationship with God. An individual's conscience, not the Bible, was the ultimate moral authority. They had neither clergy or churches. Instead they had meeting houses where they meditated silently and only spoke when the spirit moved them. The Quaker beliefs spread throughout the British Isles and to Holland and Germany.
One of the converts was William Penn. His father was an admiral and was owed money by King Charles II. Because of their practices the Quakers were persecuted and Penn conceived the idea of a colony in the New World where they could live in peace. A few Quakers had already settled in America, but this was to be the first large migration. Penn approached the King with his idea and a charter was granted on Mar. 4, 1681 for a new colony. The King named it Pennsylvania. On Nov. 8, 1682, Penn arrived, and with the assembled Friends, founded the city of Philadelphia. Invitations were sent to the Welsh Quakers to settle in Pennsylvania, and a parcel of land was set off for them, the "Welsh Tract".
The Quaker religion was organized around the meeting. The basic unit was the Local Meeting which met in a plain room at a meeting house or home. Minor offenses were settled and overseers to report violations of the discipline to the monthly meeting were appointed.
The Monthly Meeting was where most of the church business was conducted. It was composed of all local meetings of a small geographical area. The monthly meeting regulated marriages, controlled funds, gave charity, supervised schools, disciplined or disowned anyone guilty of a moral offense, and sent reports to the quarterly meeting.
The Quarterly Meeting was attended by delegates from each monthly meeting in a geographical area. Any problems too important for a monthly meeting were referred to the quarterly meeting where they could be settled or placed on the agenda for the yearly meeting.
The Yearly Meetings were attended by delegations from the quarterly meetings. There were six yearly meetings in PA and NJ (called Philadelphia), NY, MD, VA, NC, and New England. Generally any decision reached was binding on all quarterly and monthly meeting in the jurisdiction. If a decision could not be reached the matter would be postponed until the next meeting and they might write a letter to London for advice. London was considered to be 1st among equals.
Quaker marriage customs. Quakers were required to marry within the Society. If they married outside they would be disowned. In order to marry, members had to publicly state their marriage intentions at two monthly meetings in a row, A committee would be appointed to investigate for any impediment. If one was found the couple would be privately advised. If there was no impediment the couple would be liberated to marry after the 2nd declaration. To conduct the marriage at least 12 Friends had to be present at either a public or private meeting. At least 12 witnesses signed the certificate. There was no minister. If a spouse died, the remaining spouse was suposed to wait a year before remarriage. I believe that Jehu Pugh's marriage was recorded somewhere in the Wrightsboro meeting records.
Quaker dates: Quakers did not use the standard names of the months. Instead they called them the 1st month, 2nd month, etc. Until the change over from the Julian to Gregorian calendar in 1753, the 1st month was March. In 1853 the 1st month became January.
Disownment occurred when a member acted in a manner contrary to discipline. The member would be visited by a committee appointed by the meeting, If the member failed to acknowledge fault after the visitation he was disowned and could not be reinstated until acknowledgment of the fault was made. Among the records of our family disownments were issued for "marrying out of unity" and for the involvement in armed conflicts such as the Regulator Rebellion and the Revolutionary War.
In response to the problems which caused the Regulator Rebellion, Quaker leaders in the Hillsboro area of NC decided that it might be wise to migrate. On Sept. 1, 1767 their representative appeared before the Governor and Coucil of GA to petition for land. A grant of 12,000 acres adjoining the Indian Line from Little River was made providing that ten families should come by Feb. 1, 1768. About 40 families made the initial trip to what is now mainly in McDuffie Co. Additional land was added to the Quaker reserve in 1768 and 1773. Following the defeat of the Regulators additional Quakers such as the Pughs arrived The principal town was Wrightsborough where the Monthly meeting was held.. William Bartram visited the area in late spring 1773 and wrote..."The inhabitants of this part of the Country having formerly been inured to industry & farming in the Northn Colonies, & finding this fruitefull Soil turn their hands to the sam sort of Agriculture. They Plant Wheat Barley, Flax Hemp, Oats, corn, Cotton, Indigo Breed Cattle Sheep & Make Very good Butter & Cheese". Remember that Jehu Pugh later made and sold cheese in Upson Co. During the Revolutionary War the Quaker settlements were subject to raids from pro-American but basically lawless groups who perceived the area to be pro British. Many, such as Jesse Pugh and his family, went to the safer Quaker settlements in NC and SC, returning after the war. After the war the area, which had been reserved by the British for the Quakers, was opened up for settlement by all. By the 1790's the Quakers were no longer in the majority in the area.
One other issue needs to be discussed about our Quaker ancestors. That is the issue of slavery. This became a very important issue among the Quakers in the early years of the 19th century after the invention of the cotton gin brought about a rapid expansion of slavery in the area. Quakers, who did not practice slavery, found that they could not economically compete with this labor..In 1802 a Quaker preacher, Zachariah Dicks, arrived at Wrightsborough and exhorted the Quakers to remove themselves from the midst of slavery and predicted an internecine war within the lives of the children then living (how prophetic!). This created a mild panic among the Quakers. What amounted to a split occurred between those who wished to keep slaves and those who did not. Thousands of Quakers from the southern states who opposed slavery moved north to Quaker settlements in Ohio and Indiana. Three of Jehu Pugh's brothers, the Kinmans, and some of the Stewarts went north with this exodus. The Quaker religion in the south began a decline from which it never recovered.
I believed that the Pugh's and their relatives may still have been following Quaker practices even after moved to Jasper and Upson Co. The "Historical Atlas of Religion in America" by Edwin Scott Gauslad indicates the present of a Quaker 'church" in Upson Co. in 1850. I have never found or seen any other reference to this church. I wonder if the lack of marriage records for Asa lies in the fact that he was married in the Quaker manner and therefore not officially recorded.
The Regulator movement in NC and the subsequent Battle of Alamanac were probably an important factor in causing the Pughs to move south to GA. I am therefore providing some background this topic.
The Regulators were a group of Orange County, NC residents who felt that their interests were not being served by the colonial government 135 miles away at New Bern. The local sheriffs were embezzling large amounts of the funds. Protests were lodged with the colonial government but fell on deaf ears. In 1768 the sheriff of Orange County announced that he would accept taxes for two days only at each of 5 places and anyone paying elsewhere or at another time would be assessed an additional two shillings and sixpence. Orange Co. covered a large area at that time and the farmers had to travel a great distance to pay. Additionally the people were cash poor and often had to borrow to pay their taxes. At this same time Gov. Tryon requested 15000 lbs. from the provincial legislature to build a residence. The protest against these actions grew into "The Regulation", a name borrowed from a SC movement. The Regulators considered themselves to be defenders against the lawlessness of predatory officeholders.
The Regulators never had one leader, although there were several who were prominent in the movement, among whom was Herman Husband, a Quaker who was married to Mary Pugh the daughter of Thomas Pugh. Discouraged because of their failure to secure their aims through peaceful means the Regulators began to take more radical measures. Violence, and lawlessness were the order of the day and they refused to pay fines, terrorized those who administered the law, and disrupted court proceedings. The wealthier colonists on the coast considered them to be a mob.
In March of 1771 the governor's council advised Gov. Tryon to call out the militia and march against the Regulators. With a force of less than 1000 men Gov. Tryon met the Regulators on the banks of Alamance Creek near present day Burlington on May 16, 1771. Although they had a force of about 2000, the Regulators had no leadership, efficient organization and arms to match the better organizes militia. Many fled the battle field leaving their braver comrades to fight on. Among those who remained was a gunsmith, James Pugh the son of Thomas Pugh. He fired at the militia from behind what is now called "Pugh's Rock" at the Alamance Battlefield site. The battle lasted two hours and each side lost nine men and a large number of Regulators were wounded.
About 15 prisoners were captured and six were executed. Among these was James Pugh. When executed he was placed on a barrel as was the custom, he was composed and calm and asked to be allowed to address the crowd for a half hour. He declared that he had long been prepared to meet his God, that he had no regrets for what he had done in the matter, and that his blood would be good seed sown on good ground which would soon produce a hundredfold. He then recapitulated the causes that had led to the conflict and asserted that the Regulators had taken no life prior to the battle, that they had aimed at nothing more than a redress of their grievances. That Tryon had brought an army to murder the people instead of taking sides against dishonest officers, corrupt clerks and tax gathers. He mentioned Edmund Fanning, the clerk of the Hillsborough Recorder's Court, by name. At that time, his half hour having expired, Fanning suddenly knocked the barrel out from under him and he was hung in the presence of Gov. Tryon on June 19, 1771. Another Regulator executed on the battlefield was James Few whose brother William Few signed the U.S. Constitution for GA. Herman Husband escaped to PA where he was a leader of the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794 after the Revolution. Some consider that the Regulator movement was a prelude to the Revolutionary War.
Names found among paper's relating to the Regulator's include not only James Pugh and Herman Husband, but also Thomas, Jesse, Enoch and John Pugh. A William Kinman is also found in these papers.
Even though those involved in the movement were offered pardons if they pledged an oath of allegiance to the royal government, many of those involved moved on as Jesse Pugh did.
Various members of the Pugh family were disowned by the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting probably for being involved with the Regulators. Jesse on June 1, 1771, Thomas on Sept. 7, 1771 and on Sept. 7, 1771 Thomas Pugh was disowned specifically for joining a company of armed men.
On Aug. 31, 1771 John Pugh was charged as an outlaw for breaking up court at Hillsborough on Sept. 1770. A deposition from Elizabeth Jones said that she had seen him 40 miles away on Sept. 23, 1770 Elizabeth Pugh, Peninah Pugh and Ann Jones swore that they had also seen him about 40 miles from Hillsborough on Sept. 24-25, 1770. Another petition from inhabitants of Guilford Co. stated they were acquainted with John Pugh for 9-10 years, he was sober, honest, and industrious, and that knowing himself innocent of the crime of rebellion fled to distant parts for his safety leaving a wife and one small child in utmost extremity. They asked for a pardon for John Pugh. I do not know the outcome of this case.
