  • John H Tugman was born in Missouri to two immigrants from Ireland,Thomas Tugman and his wife Margrett (Margaret).

    In 1870, John was 10 years old, living with his family in Cass County,Missouri.  Both he and his father are working on the Railroad.

    Maggie, the last child, was born in 1875.  She is reported in the 1900census, where we find John's parents living in Montague County, Texas.

    At some time before 1875 (when John's sister Magie [Maggie] was born),they moved to Texas.

    In 1880 John is boarding with other people working for the railroad inTexas.  The 1880 census reports him living in a boarding house in PaloPinto County, Texas (two counties west of Ft Worth).
