Welcome, this is a genealogy web site for "The Nugent Family". William Nugent lived in Laurens County South Carolina before 1800 and his family spread out. In the 1800 census it shows "Free White Males (Age 26-45): 2 " one of which is William and I believe the other is his brother Benjamin who later moved to Franklin county Indiana. So if you have Nugent's in your line from South Carolina in the early to middle 1800's we may be kinfolk. Also it seems that some of them were farmers and blacksmiths. My line of the Nugent's came from Laurens County South Carolina and went to Roark's Cove (aka Civil District 9, Hawkerville, or Alto), Franklin County, Tennessee in the mid 1810's. John Nugent settled there and four more generations of Nugent's were born there. I found the will of Samuel Nugent that describes all of James Nugent of Rogersville in Lauderdale Alabama's children exactly so that line is also connected to mine.
I am dedicating this site to my father George Derrel Nugent, the last generation born there, he will be missed but never forgotten. While this is a web site of the Nugent family there are many other lines that are related such as Cherry, Crownover, Houk, Taylor, and on and on. Please use the Site Search to see if any of you family lines are here. This site will be updated regularly. Any information and or pictures of Nugent's or their descendants will be greatly appreciated.

Searching Tips !
To find the relative that you are looking for enter the first and or the last name only. Sometimes they went by their middle name. If you get too refined in your search it may not work as I may not know their middle name or other details. Make a note, to back up a generation from any page go to the bottom of the page and click the Previous link. If you have any troubles let me know and I will try to help.
Quotes for all to remember and take to heart!!!
"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." - William Boetcker - 1916
The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks: We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. - Samuel Adams
If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. - Thomas Jefferson
The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. - Thomas Jefferson
"Let not him who is house less pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built." - Abraham Lincoln

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Thomas Jefferson
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. - Benjamin Franklin
The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits. - Thomas Jefferson
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty. - Benjamin Franklin
Liberty is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others. - William Allen White
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. - Groucho Marx
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. - John F. Kennedy
I have not come into this world to make men better, but to make use of their weaknesses. - Adolf Hitler
Hitler's psychological profile: His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.- Benjamin Franklin
The providence of God, which keeps up the generations of men, and so preserves that degenerate race, though guilty and obnoxious, in being upon earth. How easily could He cut it off without either a deluge or a conflagration! The divine patience lets the trees that cumber the ground not only grow, but propagate. As one generation, even of sinful men, passes away, another comes and will do so while the earth remains. Destroy it not, for a blessing is in it. - Matthew Henry
