Another family may here be noticed - the Huggins family. The first known of this family were John Huggins and Willis Huggins, not brothers but first cousins. (footnote - John Huggins and Willis were first cousins. Their fathers were brothers, their grandfather was the common ancestor, and, I suppose was the first Huggins in the county, about 1740 or 1750). Old John Huggins lived at Huggins'Bridge, on Little Pee Dee: he married a Miss Campbell, sister of Gadi and Theophilus; he raised a considerable family of sons and one daughter - if there were other daughters, the writer never heard of them; the sons were Solomon, Henry, John Theophilus, George, Enos and Ebben.
