Daniel C. Sugg?!?!

Daniel Cato Sugg (or Suggs) (1866-1936) was the son of George Washington Suggs and Esther Suggs. His sister Serena Suggs Moore was featured here.

Here’s the family in the 1870 census of Wilson, Wilson County: Washington Suggs, 42, brickmason, with children Sarena, 8, Mary, 2, Decatur [Daniel Cato], 6, plus farm laborer Richard Harper, 17. Wife Esther was apparently overlooked.

In the 1880 census of Wilson, Wilson County: brickmason Washington Sugg, 51, wife Esther, 38, and children Nicy, 21, Sarena, 17, Cator, 16, Molly, 12, Edmonia, 10, Juda, 5, and James, 3.

According to Krewasky A. Salter’s The Story of Black Military Officers 1861-1948, Daniel was not admitted. Federal records promise to reveal more, and I’m hunting them down. Stay tuned.
