Stafford and Dugan Photo Family Tree
Joyce Dugan Powell and her eldest daughter--me!
|Joyce and Teresa|
Joyce, as a child, the little blonde. Except for this time in life, she and her siblings all had dark hair.

Frank and Sadie (Stafford) Dugan
Joyce's parents: Frank D. Dugan and Sadie Stafford Dugan. Sadie was not given a middle name.
My parents and I lived with my grandparents for the first six months of my life and then moved to Joliet, Illinois (for three years). My sources told me that my grandparents doted on me. Grandpa Frank would come in from milking and say, “Where is my baby?”
Grandpa Frank died while we lived in Joliet.
I don’t remember Grandpa Frank, but Grandma Sadie was a huge part of my life—growing up. My best memories of her revolved around Sunday get-togethers. On any given Sunday, after church, I could count on good food, lots of cousins to play with and aunts and uncles telling us what to do.
Amanda Stafford (on the right) was Grandma Sadie's mother. My mother (Joyce), the eighth child of Frank and Sadie, remembers a few things about her Grandma Amanda. One thing she remembers was that Amanda smoked a pipe.
The other woman in the photo is “Grannie Davis” I think this is Amanda's mother. (I don’t remember her first name, but will update).
Grandpa Frank’s parents: John Dugan and Elizabeth Williams Dugan
And there you have it. The maternal side of my family tree featuring the Staffords and the Dugans.
