As was stated in “Following Joseph”, we know that Joseph Dunagan (1740-1808) came into Georgia in or around 1790 and settled in Georgia’s original Franklin County. His land was near the Curahee Mountain on the upper North Fork of the Broad River. Posted is a map showing the location of Joseph Dunagan’s land. It is referred to as Donnegan’s Station on the map. Also posted is a letter from the settler’s to the Governor, notice that Joseph’s signature shows that he spelled his name as Dunagin. You will also see documents referring to the building of a blockade on Donnagan’s Plantation and general orders given to build the blockade. Also note on the map that Donnegan’s Station was located ten miles from Fort Mathews and 2 miles from Wofford’s Settlement.

About Darline Dunagan Scruggs

I was born in Hall County Georgia where my ancestors have lived since the late 1790’s. My heritage is rich in histories and stories of my Dunagan ancestors and their related families. Being born and raised here has enriched my knowledge by tales that have been passed on from generation to generation. I have made it my personal quest to gather this knowledge and preserve it for our future generations.
