I am just starting on my family tree. My father is William Eugene Driggers from Florala. His father is James Driggers who died in 1957. Mother was Ruby who died in 1989. Ruby's maiden name possibly Evans. Anybody have any information?

I have a great, great, great grandfater by the name of Isaac Caleb
Driggers. He was born in Alabama (I believe in Coffee County). He
was the son of Isaac W. Driggers from South CArolina. Isaac applied
for and received passage through Indian lands to travel from
South Carolina to Alabama.

Isaac Caleb Driggers fought with Company A, of the 18th AlabamaRegiment
and was wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga in North Georgia.
After the war he and his brother and others moved to Taylor County,
Florida.

Is this possibly your ancestor???

My husband's gggrandfather (Darling Carter Sr.) married Drucilla Driggers in 1839 in Troy, Pike County, Alabama. Is she part of your family? They had three children I have found: Bennett Jackson Carter b. 3-15-1850, Mitelda Carter b. 2-12-1841 and Louiza Carter b. abt. 1825-1848. Anything would help. Please e-mail me at thirtroof@aol.com.

I have found more information on our Driggers:
Bennett Driggers (b. abt. 1795-1800) m. Charity Philpot (b. 1796)
they had two daughters:
Avis Driggers (b. 1823) m. William Smart
Drucilla Driggers (b. 1820) m. John Darling Carter Sr. (b. 1812)
John and Drucilla moved with Bennett and Charity to Alabama from South Carolina. On the same day (9-20-1839)Bennett Driggers and Caleb Driggers bought ajoining land in Pike County, Al. Caleb Driggers was born abt. 1730 in SC. I think Caleb is Bennett's father. Does anyone have a connection? Please e-mail me direct if you have anything, thirtroof@aol.com

Isaac Caleb Driggers, b. 1827 in SC, is also my third great-grandfather. He married Ellesider (Ellender/Ellen), also born in SC, and they had 6 children, according to information I have received from other family researchers. I descend from their daughter Charity Ann Driggers, who married C. C. Ezell in Madison county, FL in 1878. I would like to know more about your branch of the family, if you are interested in sharing information.

Kate, sorry it took so long to answer. What kind of information did you want, I am still searching of Bennett Driggers parents, I think it may be Isaac W. Driggers instead of his son Isaac Caleb Driggers but I am at a wall. Please e-mail me directly at thirtroof@aol.com or thirt@cfl.rr.com

Hi, I'm probably something like your 5th or 6th cousin, Jackie.

I am of the opinion that the first Isaac, Bennett and Caleb in Alabama - the ones who bought property in the late 1830s, were brothers, or maybe cousins. (It doesn't help that they all named their children after each other.)

Isaac W. was born about 1788. I've seen it posted that Bennett was born about 1897, so I don't think Isaac W. was his father.
