Greetings. This page is perpetualy under construction. It was first launched in 2000 and was last
updated September of 2006.
It has become the home base for a concentrated effort to discover and prove the genealogy of Isaac and Sarah SCOGGIN and thier extended families.
Sarah had 18 children. When we started the search we could only be sure of 3 of
them. We now have names for 13 of their children and we will strive to identify them all. It is my hope that someone from each of those lines will then
take over the administration of that lines pages.
(no luck on that yet).
We will include areas to post census data, records, photos, and whatever we find useful in our search.
OUR DNA Study is Launched!!
A surname DNA study for not only
this line but all SCOGGIN/SCROGGINS/SCOGAN etc lines is on-line at Family Tree DNA. Anyone who joins the study by going through the group study can recieve a disount of about 30%. I have learned that there a few individuals who have tested under the name SCROGGINS and I am atempting to co-ordinate with them to gain discount prices for everyone and include the larger range of surname spellings and family groups as there is a good chance we are all related somehow.

Of course a primary effort
here will be to identify the parents of Isaac & Sarah and continue the genealogy. (there is recent indication that the parents of Issac may be one John Scoggin and wife Sarah Brown) Below is a "tree" With links (initialy in blue) to a page for each of the identified children and to a page devoted to Isaac and Sarah
themselves. Many of those pages have links to census or other data.
WE HAVE A CO conspirator and researcher interested in this line. Feel free to contact here at
