Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1801
King William County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1832
Fayette County
Tennessee, USA

The daughter of Drury Boswell Winfrey and Mary Meredith Blackwell of King William County, Virginia, Peggy was previously known as "Margaret Boswell Dugar" because she was living in the home of her mother and step-father, Fleming Dugar, at the time of her marriage to Major William Ruffin on October 4, 1816. She was only fifteen at the time, according to their marriage announcement which appeared in "The Richmond Enquirer." The couple, along with their children and Peggy's newly widowed mother, Mary M. Dugar, moved to Hardeman County, Tennessee sometime around 1827. Peggy and William Ruffin had two children: James Drury Ruffin (1817-1886) and Mary Eliza Ruffin (1818-1846), who later married Adolphus Fenton Tucker. Both of these children were born in King William County, Virginia. Peggy most probably died in Fayette County, Tennessee sometime following her husband's appointment as a director of the Bank of Tennessee at Somerville in 1831. She was most certainly not alive at the time of her mother's death in 1845, since she was not mentioned in her mother's will.
