The Baggett Family in America, Part VII
Abraham Baggett Family History

We begin this chapter with Abraham Baggett, Sr., the second son of Nicholas Baggett. The first deed we present is that from Earl Granville of Edgecombe County to Abraham Baggett, Sr. This land is on Little Contentnea Creek. The date of the deed is 25 March 1752. Evidently Abraham has sold all his land in Northampton County in 1750. It is not mentioned again as far as I know. Most of the family of Abraham Baggett I came to Edgecombe in this decade.

It is obvious that in 1762 Abraham Baggett, Sr. (I) begins to distribute his land to his sons. Apparently he never made a will. It is a great disappointment that he did not make a will, because all these are not named as sons in the deeds made in 1762. Everyone believes that James is a son of Abraham I, but there is not absolute proof.

I believe that there may be sufficient evidence to establish James as his son, because he is found along with the sons of Abraham through this century, and James had a grandson named Abraham. Although Abraham I did not give James any land as he did his sons Shadrack, Elisha, and Jesse; you need to remember that Abraham I did not give his son Abraham, Jr. (II) land either.

Abraham Baggett, Jr. was charged £20 by his father, Abraham Baggett, Sr., for a certain tract of 100 acres of land there on Little Contentnea Creek and Abraham, Sr. (I) gave to his eldest son Shadrack, after his decease, the plantation where he lived in 1762. Before this deed was written, he gave Elisha and Jesse land on Little Contentnea Creek in June of the same year. He only named three sons in deeds in 1762. Abraham Baggett, Jr. is not named as a son in the deeds, but no doubt he is his son. It appears that James, Sr. is also a son of Abraham Baggett, Sr. (I). Also notice that James Baggett makes several land transactions with the other sons of Abraham Baggett, Sr. in this decade. Here he sold land that he had previously bought from Elisha to Abraham Baggett, Jr. We find James along with his son, James Baggett, Jr., in the 1770s still living as neighbors to his brother Shadrack Baggett.

James, Sr. may be in South Carolina later in this century, and his son eventually migrated farther west about the turn of the century to Montgomery County, TN. James Baggett, Sr. was associated with the lineage in Edgecombe County in the 1780s, and a James is found with them in the Marlboro District in South Carolina in the 1790s.

We can take the deeds and prove beyond any reasonable doubt that Abraham Baggett, Sr. died in the latter part of 1767 or the early part of 1768. His death is pinpointed within two months in these deeds. Notice the deed of James Baggett to Abraham Baggett, Jr. in December of 1767. The deed states that Abraham Baggett II was Junior on 1 December 1767. By the 10th of February, 1768, he is Senior.

Notice how the titles change from 1767 to 1768. Study the deed made from Abraham, Sr. to Abraham, Jr. in 1778. It verifies that Senior was Junior in 1767. Abraham I obviously has died since December of 1767 and by February of 1768 Shadrack has inherited the plantation and Abraham II apparently owns a part of it. His son and Shadrack now live on the plantation that their father, Abraham Baggett I, lived on in 1762 when he wrote the deed to Shadrack.

The deed that Shadrack and Abraham Baggett granted to Abraham Baggett, Jr. in 1768 proves that this was Abraham Baggett II making a deed to his son Abraham Baggett III because Abraham I stated in his deed to Shadrack Baggett that Shadrack was to have this 140 acres after his decease.

After carefully studying the deed it appears that this is actually the same 140 acres of land and the same plantation that Shadrack's father granted to him by deed in 1762, stating, ". . . and part of a survey that Abraham Baggett, Sr. purchased of Granville and then granted 140 acres thereof to said Shadrack Baggett by deed of gift."

Jesse Baggett made a deed to his brother Abraham in 1766. The deed that Abraham II (Sr.) made to his son Nathan bears out that this Senior was Junior on 11 July 1766. Later we find that Abraham, Sr. made a deed to his son Abraham in 1778, so we know this is the third generation of Abrahams in this century. He states on the deed that this is the same property that James sold to Abraham, Jr. in 1767 (Senior was then a junior). The above deeds prove satisfactorily that Abraham I (Sr.) died 1767 or 1768. Considering all documents, they leave no doubt that he is deceased by 1778.

Notice the way the deed is written from Elisha to James Baggett. Could the deed mean what it appears to imply? It says that this is a deed of gift from his father to said Elisha Baggett. The way it reads, it suggests that Abraham was James' father. If the recorder had meant Elisha's father, would it not have been written: ". . . a deed of gift to said Elisha Baggett from his father?" This seems to verify that James is Abraham, Sr.'s son.

A map shows approximately where Abraham, Sr. and his family settled in North Carolina in the 1760s. The county lines continually changed, but we know that it was near Baggett's Branch. Pitt County lay on the east side of Edgecombe, and an Abraham lived in Pitt County in 1762.

Apparently Martin County was cut from Halifax and Old Terrel. Ethiridge Creek was the dividing line between Edgecombe and Martin counties. Thomas Baggett resided in Martin County in 1790. Halifax County joined Martin, with Great Fishing Creek dividing Halifax County and Edgecombe. In 1775 Old Edgecombe included the present Edgecombe, Nash County, and the northern half of the present Wilson County. Little Contentnea Creek extended up into Edgecombe and ran through Pitt County in the 1760s. Baggett's Branch ran down into Little Contentnea.

Contentnea Creek (not Little Contentnea) was a dividing line between Edgecombe and Old Bladen. In the 1760s Old Bladen and Old Anson contained the territory south and west, including northern South Carolina and to the present Catawba County. Robeson and Wayne counties were made from Old Bladen County.

Apparently as soon as new territory was opened, the Baggett family moved immediately to the new frontier, proving again their pioneer spirit. By the 1760s, the Baggett families are already established in Anson County, a county west-southwest of Edgecombe County.

The Abram Baggett shown witnessing a deed was Abraham Baggett II. Abraham III is shown in a deed with Joel Baggett, son of Nicholas III, in 1782. He is found in South Carolina in 1797 in records of a Baptist Church there in Marlboro District in South Carolina.

Nathan Baggett, elder brother of this Abraham III, evidently died in Edgecombe in 1803. Apparently he had young children, but his son Nathan may have been born in the 1760s. We see in his estate record there was a Sarah and a Zealphy Baget who bought property.

The deed to John Grimes from Thomas and Mary, his wife, and Mary Baggett, Sr. (Thomas' mother) is the last time Nicholas Baggett, Sr.'s wife is found in documents. She died some time after 1761. It may be that this property is a part of, or all of the old homestead. Thomas owned another plantation at his death in Martin County.

Two deeds of Abraham relate to the same tract or parcel of land. It appears that Abraham Baggott bought 150 acres on Baggott's Branch there in Anson County in 1760 and sold the same property in 1762 to John Long. Notice that his name is spelled (ett) and (ott) on these deeds.

The deed of October 1765 shows that James Baggot bought 100 acres on Saddle Tree Swamp in that year and it appears that in 1768 the sheriff recovered from James a 300 acre tract of swamp land at that same location for £258. James Baggett is shown living in Edgecombe County in 1767, but apparently he owned several hundred acres of land in both Bladen and Edgecombe counties at that time.

None of these deeds show the sons of Abraham Baggett I living in Bladen County. They only owned land or witnessed deeds in the county. Jesse Baggett witnessed a deed from James Stewart of Bladen County to Neil McNeil in 1768, and Shadrack Baggot (see later) witnessed a deed from Abraham Barnes to Isaac Lamb, planters of Bladen County, in the year 1770.

A document here shows that the people sought a petition to form Montgomery County in February of 1779. The petition in October of 1779 states that Anson County had already been divided before. This means that Anson originally included Montgomery, Richmond, and the present Anson County. I suspected this before. These counties in North Carolina were huge counties at their outset, and over time there were many other counties formed from them. I think there are documents which prove that Robeson County and others were formed from Bladen County.

Abraham Baggett III and his brother Nathan each received land grants consisting of 300 acres that was near Little Contentnea Creek. The deed shown from Abraham III of Edgecombe to Daniel Sullivan was witnessed by his father. Abraham II signed his name on documents as Abram Baggett, Abra Baggett, and Abraham Baggett, Jr.

Abraham Baggett III has a son Nicholas Granberry Baggett. His son was Rev. Ned Granberry, born 9 October 1849, died 10 October 1945, married June 1878 Emma Lucretia McCormick in Appleton (Escambia County), AL. A grandson of Abraham III was Allen Jackson Baggett, born 12 March 1880 in Brewton Escambia County), AL, married to Margaret Elizabeth (called "Bessie") Blackwell on 24 September 1902 in
Escambia County, Alabama. Allen died 28 September 1924 in Goodway (Monroe County), Alabama and was
buried next to his wife Bessie. Allen Jackson Baggett and Bessie Blackwell had seven children.

Abram is mentioned in the Marlboro District in South Carolina. In 1800 Abram Baggett died there. Apparently he had followed his children to South Carolina, because in 1789 we find his son there when he sold land in Edgecombe County to Mercer Ward.

Apparently several others migrated to the Marlboro District. They include Jesse, John, Abraham III, James, Joel, and another Abraham Baggett, whom we are not sure of. There were numerous deeds written by Abraham Baggett in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In my records I have three generations of Abrahams descending from the old Abraham Baggett I, along with Abraham, son of Nicholas Baggett III, and Abraham, son of James Baggett, Jr.

All those people mentioned above may have deeds pertaining to the same property in Robeson County, NC, but at this particular time showing that their lands were in South Carolina. There was a dispute over the two counties (Robeson County, NC and Marlboro County, SC) that was not settled until after the turn of the century. At one time you may find a person living in Marlboro County and another time in Robeson County, because the dispute had not yet been settled between the two States.

We find in the 1780s an Averett Baggett. He bought land in Wayne County, and was probably a brother of Nathan and Abraham Baggett III. He bought 400 acres of land there in Wayne County for £40 and then sold the same for £100. He then bought 320 acres of prime land for £40, so he gained £60 in these transactions.

In northern Marlboro County in South Carolina information has been found where a Church Record Book showed there was an Abraham Baggett in its membership. All this is found in the South Carolina State Library. There is little doubt that this Abraham is the son of Abraham II (Abram or Abra Baggett). Abraham III attended conferences at the Salem Baptist Church in Marlboro County from 1797 to 1805.

The first Conference that Abraham is shown to attend was on Saturday, 18 June 1797. The names mentioned are: Robert Thomas, Aaron Person, William Beasley, Barnell, Joseph Lester, Isaac Weatherby, and Abraham Baggett. Abraham also attended Conferences on 12 August, 19 September, 17 October in 1797; January and March in 1798; January in 1799; 24 May in 1800; 10 September 1801; September and October in 1803; and February and October in 1804. Abraham's name disappears in 1805.

On 15 January 1799 members present: Robert Thomas, Aaron Person, James Bottom, Abraham Baggett, Isaac Weatherby, and John Killingworth. At this meeting Abraham Baggett, Sr. came forward with a Letter of Recommendation from a Baptist Church in North Carolina. His Letter was approved and he was received in fellowship.

Let us look at all this and determine who these Abrahams are. We know that Abram has died in ca. 1800 there in Marlboro County in South Carolina. The Abraham who attended Conference from 1797 to 1805 surely had to be Abraham III, a brother of Nathan Baggett. But who is Abraham Baggett, Sr., the gentleman who came from North Carolina? Could it be Abraham Baggett II, or maybe Abraham, son of Nicholas Baggett, Jr. (III)?

It could not possibly be this man because he died in 1793. Neither could it be Abraham, son of James. More than likely it was Abraham Baggett II, who had followed his children to South Carolina and died a short time thereafter, in 1800. He was born in ca. 1735. Abraham IV, according to records that I have seen, was not born until 1809, so none of the above was Abraham IV.

Many Baggetts were Baptists in the United States. Many of the descendants of Abraham are listed as Baptists in their genealogy history. Many of Abraham's family had Baptist religious backgrounds. There were also many deacons and ministers, and some were pastors, who were descendants of Thomas and Nicholas Baggett III. Others who are not shown to descend from this lineage were deacons. I have always thought that the Baggetts of America were Baptists, although we know that some were Protestants. Most of the ones mentioned as Protestants were Methodists.

Looking back at the English Baggots, in the lineage shown from Bagot's Bromley in Staffordshire, ministers of the Anglican Church were numerous. Practically all this lineage were Protestants.

The Bagot families of Ireland were zealous Catholics. Many of these Bagots lost all their possessions mainly because of their continued adherence to the Roman Catholic Church in the 1600s.

The Baggett families who came to America may have left England because of persecutions. At the restoration in 1660 there were many Protestants who fled to other countries, primarily to the friendly Alps to escape persecution. It was because of persecutions that the Puritans left England in the first part of the seventeenth century.

James and Drewery Baggett are mentioned in 1776. These must be the sons of James Baggett, Sr. They, along with Alse, Elizabeth, and Rhoady were in a document in Johnston County as being the children of Elizabeth Baggett. In James Baggett, Jr.'s pension application it states that his mother is still living in 1818 and that she is upwards of 100 years old.

The above document may relate to the Johnston County Militia service, since in another document of 14 August 1776 it states that Joseph Ryals was excused from militia duty because he was above 50 years of age. Lewis, Arthur, Needam, and William Bryan were officers in the Johnston County Militia. In a later document Drew Baggett is listed as musician in the Militia.

Allen Baggot, youngest son of Thomas, entered as a volunteer in the North Carolina Militia in 1779 as a private. John Bagget, along with a Drew Baggett, had volunteered as privates at about the same time. James Baggett, Jr. also served in the Anson County Militia.

Many of the older Baggetts in this lineage served as soldiers in North Carolina. Evidently Abraham Bagget served as a private in 1748 in the Muster Roll of Capt. Samuel Cotton's Company. Private Nicholas Bagget, along with Private Barnaby Bagget, served also in the Roll of Capt. Samuel Cotton's Company.

James Bagget served in Capt. Solomon Watson's Company in North Carolina, and in the Martin County Militia, John Bagget is shown as Private. Abraham Baggett is found in the Edgecombe County Militia serving as drummer in Capt. Solomon Olston's Company in the 1750s.

James Baggett, Jr. (a grandson of Abraham I) enlisted in Anson (in a portion which later became Richmond County) near the South Carolina line in March preceding the siege of Fort Moultrie in 1776. He marched with the company of Capt. Wise from the enlistment town to the neighborhood of the City of Charleston in South Carolina, where they met with other troops under Col. Thompson. Remaining there for a short time, they then went to Sullivan Islands and were there during the siege of Fort Moultrie by the British.

After the British were repulsed at Fort Moultrie, his captain was promoted and he was put under the command of Capt. Uriah Godwin. His company then marched to a camp at Savannah, GA, where he became sick. After remaining in the hospital for three weeks, he was then taken by boat to Augusta, GA. He understood that the intention of his company's march to Augusta was to engage in a battle against the Creek Indians; but the expedition against the Indians was abandoned and he and others in his company had a 30 day furlough. After the 30 days had expired, he continued in the service in different parts of the states of Georgia and South Carolina and was discharged near Charleston, SC. He had enlisted for fifteen months.

On 7 May 1818, James, Jr. made application for his pension for services in the Revolutionary War. At this time he lived in Montgomery County, TN. He needed support for himself, his wife (very infirm), and his mother now upwards to 100 years of age. (His mother and father were born in the mid-1720s or early 1730s.)

On 17 October 1820, James, Jr. renewed his pension application. He was then 64 years old and his wife Nancy was 62. Evidently his mother was deceased at this time, since he and his wife were listed as the only members of his household. James' property contained, twenty acres of land, one mare and colt, four heads of cattle, seven heads of sheep, five heads of common sized hogs, eight pigs, one large iron kettle, two iron pots, one dutch oven, one skillet, one chest, one table, one raw cowhide, some few shelf & cupboard items, two dollars due me and I am indebted thirty five dollars.

It appears that James died on 18 September 1833 and Nancy, his widow, died 19 June 1838. On 18 August 1841, a document in the Treasury Department of the United States quotes: "Under the act of 6 April 1838, it entitles an Act directing the transfer of money unclaimed by certain pensioners and authorizing the payment of same at the Treasury Department of the Unites States unto Abraham and Josiah Baggett, two of the four surviving children of James Baggett, deceased, a pensioner on the roll of the Nashville, Tennessee Agency at the rate of eight dollars per month, under the law of 18 March 1818, has been paid at this department from 4 September 1818 to 18 September 1833."

James Baggett, Jr. had four sons: Josiah, Abraham, Micajah, and John (or Mark) Baggett, who died young. Additional proof of these children (other than the pension applications) was given by Mr. Irvin Baggett, a descendant of Abraham (son of James, Jr.), who lived to see his eighty-eighth birthday. He was a son of Benjamin Baggett and Mary Harvey. Irvin married Pearl Baggett, daughter of Hezekiah Baggett and Endora Karnes. He was a Baptist, by occupation a farmer, and resided on Route 1 in Cunningham, TN. He died 9 April 1970 and is buried in the Harvey Cemetery in Cunningham. It was a short time before he died that he told relatives how he remembered his aunts speaking of their uncle Micajah Baggett.

After Irvin's death, his widow told how Old Abraham Baggett made a trip by raft from Palmyra, TN to New Orleans, LA. Their daughter, Mary Naomi Berard, kept a copy of the original document written by Abraham, who had kept a log of his journey. This trip lasted twenty-eight days, and the document shows each day's travel, where he was at a particular time and how many miles he traveled that day. He started from home on 17 March 1830 and reached New Orleans twenty-eight days later.

Irvin and Pearl Baggett told about the little trunk that Abraham carried his belongings in on the trip and how they had kept these items until a short time before Irvin died. In the trunk were the trousers Irvin's great-grandfather wore on the trip,  but they said that they were so old and worn, they burned them one day while they were cleaning. Mr. and Mrs. Berard remember the story and remember the trips their great-aunts made to the attic where they and Irvin kept these treasures of old.

William Baggett, Sr., son of Abraham (son of James, Jr., who died 1833), made his will in 1888 and died in 1895. His father is the Abraham who made the trip by raft to New Orleans.


April 21, 1888
I, William Baggett, Sr., of District 18 in Montgomery County, TN, occupation farmer–I make this my last will–I give, devise, and bequeath my estate and property, real and personal, as follows:

That is to say, I give to my wife Sarah M. Baggett all my personal and real estate lands, stocks and household goods during her natural life or widowhood, and then my lands are to be equally divided between Gilbert Baggett and Charles Baggett, my two sons. I want each one to have a bed and furniture apiece, and that is all that I want them to have.

My daughter, Lucy Jane Better, is to have the five dollars that I loaned W.A.J. Better in 1864, and five dollars and forty cents paid on judgment for him, which W.A.J. Better paid in about 1878. I also will my daughter Lucy Jane Better one dollar out of my estate and that is all I want her to have from the same.

At my wife's death, I want all of my personal property sold and the proceeds divided between the balance of my heirs as follows: Alvin Baggett's heirs, Thomas Baggett, J. B. Baggett, Josiah Baggett, William Baggett, Jr., Pautha Davis, Tennessee Trotter, and Emily T. Yarbrough.

This is my only and last Will and Testament this the 21st of April, 1888. I now appoint H. H. Mackabee as the administrator of my will without bond. I have signed and sealed, published and declared this instrument as my will at home.

 Signed: William Baggett
Witnessed by:
Josiah Baggett
J. W. Davison
H. H. Mackabee

The above will was probated and recorded in Montgomery County on 16 March 1895.


A lineage from Micajah, brother of Abraham who went by raft, is shown in Montgomery County. Micajah's daughter, Dicy Baggett, married Thomas Baggett and had two sons. (I don't believe the family knows who this Thomas Baggett is descended from.) In a newspaper article that was published by The Nashville Tennessean on 2 April 1938 it notes that John Baggett was a child of Dicy and Thomas Baggett. Quote from this article: "John Baggett, a retired farmer of Blooming Grove community, is ninety-four years of age, and has lost track of many of his widely increasing progeny, which he roughly estimates at 200.

"Mr. Baggett recalled a brief political career in 1899. At that time he was elected as Direct Representative in the Tennessee Legislature as a dark horse for one term. He never ran for office again.

"He was the father of nine children, each of whom is living. [We have them listed in the Genealogy section.] Mr. Baggett was born in Dickson County, TN, but he has spent most of his life in Montgomery County. His parents were the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Baggett, pioneers from North Carolina.

"As a boy, he worked at a rural whisky distillery and at age 18, while making 50 cents a day, he married. Later he entered the livestock business. Using $2,000, which he borrowed at 10% interest, he began trading in livestock as well as real estate. For years Mr. Baggett manufactured charcoal and sold it to a blast furnace company, and at one time in his life he operated a general merchandise store in the community there.

"While a Southern sympathizer, he never enlisted in the militia as a soldier in the War Between the States because,' he said, `I always thought a war was a rich man's plan and a poor man's fight.'

"John Baggett was born on 2 November 1845 in Dickson County, TN. He married at the age of 18, Mary Martha Underwood. He died 20 February 1940. Mr. John Baggett is buried in Baggett's Cemetery at Hackberry, TN."

A deed is from William Copeland to Micajah Baggett. Micajah was a brother of Abraham Baggett who went by raft (son of James Baggett, Jr.). Micajah was about 22 years of age when the following deed was written. He bought sixty-four acres of land in the Budd's Creek area. We find that Abraham Baggett and James Baggett were witnesses. The Abraham and James were his brother and father.

Micajah married Miss Allie Parker of Montgomery County. They settled shortly thereafter in the Budd's Creek community and reared their family. They had six children, whose descendants are still in Montgomery County. Jesse Baggett (grantor of the deed immediately below this one) was their eldest child. Jesse was sixty-four years old when he made the deed to his children. Maloye Suggs Bragg is a descendant of Jesse Baggett and Edward Burney Baggett is a descendant of Jesse's sister Dicy, who was the eldest daughter of Micajah Baggett. She married a Thomas Baggett. Terry Williamson is a descendant of Abraham Baggett (a brother of  Micajah Baggett).

The deed from John Bryan to Benjamin Cobb in Northampton County shows that Jesse Baggett lived near Corriroy Swamp in 1753. His grandfather Nicholas was living near Uraha Creek and his uncle, Nicholas Baggett, Jr. (III), was living near Ahotskey Creek. Nicholas transferred 300 acres of land on Wattom Swamp adjoining William Whitfield in 1750.

The deed witnessed by Elizabeth Bagget evidently is Elizabeth Jordan who had married Averett Baggett in that same year. This may possibly be another Elizabeth Bagget, but I am inclined to believe that she is the wife of Averett Baggett. Elizabeth Baget signed Thomas, Jr.'s will; it could have been her. Also notice the other name in one deed, the name of James Boyt. He, or his father by the same name, is in a deed from Nicholas Baggett to his son Abraham of Northampton County in the year 1751. This 100 acres joined the land of Nicholas' son Barnaby Baggett and the said James Boyte.

Abraham Baggett I's family first settled in Isle of Wight. In the beginning they apparently lived on the north side of the Meherrin River (at that time in Virginia). Apparently Abraham owned land at a very young age there. The family then moved over to Cattawisky Creek; at that time this land was in North Carolina (the county lines had changed in the first half of the eighteenth century).

Abraham's family lived there in Northampton County until he bought land in Edgecombe County. After Abraham, Sr. died, the family lived in Edgecombe for a short time and then began to migrate to Pitt, Wayne, and Anson counties. Before the turn of the century they were in South Carolina.

Shown next are two letters patent for land grants, one to Abraham and the other to Micajah, sons of James Baggett, Jr.
