US Census 1860 (III)

The US census of 1860 shows a considerable jump in the number of people who have the Buggy name, up from 97 to 223 in 10 years.[1] This was due to child birth and immigration, mostly from Ireland. In this census we can see the beginning of the move west into Iowa and Missouri, with one person making it as far as California. The majority of Buggy’s still live in the north east of the US.

Variants of the name: Bugg 580, Bug 30, Bugge 25, Buggie 9, Buge 3, Buggey 1, Bogaig 0.
