LaRae had 34 grandchildren when she died, with two already dead.

Oga Jenson Falslev was born at Randers, Arhus, Denmark, and came to the USA on 12 May 1905. His parents changed there name to Falslev upon arriving because their original name was very common. Falslev is unique, and was only found in UT until the mid-20th century. Falslev was a wide spot in the road in Denmark near the village of Randers, where Oga's family came from. So they took their name from the almost-village they came from. It is a Danish name. Their original surname was Jensen. In Denmark, the surname is not passed down from parent to child. The surname comes from the father's first name with "sen" added to it. So if your father was named Jen Arhus, and you were born in Denmark, your last name would be "Jensen," not Arhus. The the most common first name for fathers in the second half of the 19th Century, was Jen. So when Oga's father Marius Jensen arrived in the USA in 1902, because such a common family name was already in the Danish communities of the USA, if he used the American naming custom, then it would be impossible to get your own mail. So he gave himself a last name nobody else had: Falslev. Sylvia Nelson was from Taylorville, Alberta Prov, Canada. (MY,N,W,X,664fxc) (153, 664uvwfxc)

        Asa Biggs [C1a5c2a6], son of Kader Biggs and Hannah Davis, was born 17 January 1788 in Martin Co NC. Even though he was but age 17, he was mentioned in the March 1805 Skewarkey Church Minutes in Martin Co. He received letter of dismission from Skewarkey Baptist Church in 1808. Soon after then he and two of his brothers moved to Stewart Co TN and were there in 1809. The seven charter members of Saline Creek Baptist Church at Bumpus Mills, Stewart Co TN were Thomas Ross, Nathan Ross, Asa and Wynea Biggs, Wm. and Sally Hubbard, and John Ferrill. This was the same Asa Biggs and John Ferrill from Skewarkey Church in Martin Co. Asa was taxed in Captain Ross' district in Stewart Co in 1809. On April 18, 1812, the membership of the church was: Asa Biggs, John Ferrill, Robert Warren, John Biggs, Isaac McKinney, Robert McKinney, Henry King, Nathan Ross, John Stancil, Cornelius Anderson, Wynea Biggs, Boatswain Valentine, Elizabeth Williams, Elizabeth Hooks, Penny King, Rebecca McKinney, Mary McKinney, Jr., Nancy Biggs, Amy Wallace, Mary Anderson, William Hubbard, Sally Hubbard, Elizabeth Neville, and Mary McKinney Sr. 1 December 1818 was the last entry for Asa in this Saline Creek Church.

        Asa and Wynea moved to Haywood Co TN in early 1819 where he took title to 50 acres (Asa's distant cousin Daniel Cherry [C1a8c1h] was the first new settler who was granted land in the Haywood Co area). Although Haywood had not yet been opened up to White settlers (it was actully Indian land then), there were enterprising and bold pioneers who "Jumped the gun" and moved in early, even if the Indians were a threat. And since this land was not a county until 1823, there was no census record for the area in 1820. After Asa was granted his land rights, there were no more acreage granted to Any Biggs person in these early years; they had all moved to TX. Asa moved to TX in the 1840s and lived in Shelby Co. He died in 1861 in TX. Asa had married Winifred Wilson in NC in 1806. She was born about 1787 in NC and died after 1850. They appear in Haywood Co TN censuses of 1830 and 1840, and in Shelby Co TX in 1850. In Asa's home in 1830 were four sons, no daughters, and a wife. Living nearby was D W Biggs, shown as the eldest son below, and daughter Eliza, recently married to Elihu Mauldin, plus a likley daughter also living with Eliza. In 1840 in Haywood Co, living next door to Asa was William Biggs, who was an older teen just recently married. In Asa's home in 1840 were two males age 10 - 14, one male age 15-19 and Asa, age 50s, one female age 5-9, and a wife age 50s The only missing people were the two older teen boys from the 1830 census. The 1830 census taker was not very accurate with the ages of the younger sons. In 1850 Asa was in Shelby Co TX with Winnifred. Both were born in NC. They had just one daughter in their home in 1850, and she was married and had a child. Asa's family, derived from few census records, had nine or ten children-

a.     Dorsey W Biggs, b 1808

b.     Susan Biggs, was probably a daughter born about 1810 in Stewart Co TN. Since there was no 1820 census for Asa and his family (they were in Haywood Co TN then, which had no 1820 census), and since there is a five year gap between the births of Dorsey and Eliza, then it would by just speculation that this gap was filled with another child. Living with Asa's daughter Eliza in 1830 (she had recently married) was a young woman born betweem 1801 and 1810. Some Cherry family researchers think she was Susan. We may never know since she was likely married or dead by 1840, and no possible daughter was found living near Asa's adult children in TX in 1850. (JY,W)

        Davis Warren Biggs [C1a5c2a2e], son of John Biggs and Nancy Warren, was born in 1805 in Martin Co NC, but grew up in Stewart Co TN. He married Thisbe Anderson on on 27 January 1825 in Stewart Co. Soon after they moved to Union Co IL. She was born in the early 1810s (age 15-19 in 1830, age 31 in 1850) in TN. Davis died in 1887 in Union Co. In 1830 there was a teenage boy living with Davis and Thisbe; Davis' uncle Asa Biggs lived nearby then. Davis and Thisbe had seven children-

1.     Mary Biggs, married Elisha Stapleton. (128)

        Davis W Biggs [C1a5c2a3g], son of Reuben Biggs and Sally Watson, was born 21 November 1806 in Beaufort Co NC, but grew up in Stewart Co TN (age 43 in 1850). He was named after his paternal grandmother Hannah Davis. What his middle initial W stands for is not known; no record has been found that shows his full name, just a middle initial. But since his mother's name was Watson, that would be a good guess. When his sister Drucilla married and moved to Union Co IL in the early 1820s, Davis and his wife followed about five years later. Davis married Thisbe Anderson on 27 January 1825 in Stewart Co. "Thisbe Biggs" was dismissed from Saline Baptist Church membership on 15 October 1825 because she was "moving to Illinois." Thisbe was born 17 June 1808 in Stewart Co, daughter of Cornelius Anderson (1773-1839) and Mary Scott (1777-1864).

        Many Cherry an Biggs researchers think that Davis was a son of John Biggs of Martin Co NC and of Stewart Co TN. We know from census records for Davis that he was born about 1805 in TN. From the 1820 Stewart Co census, we can see that Kedar, James W, and Reuben Biggs all lived next to each other and were on census page 211, John Biggs was on page 216, and Luke Biggs was on page 252. All of these Biggs men were of age to be Davis' father. And because of the age groupings of everyone in the 1820 cenus, Davis would have been a male age about 15, or in the 10-15 age grouping, or in the 16-18 age grouping (not everyone told the truth about their ages to the census takers). Of the three men on page 211, Kedar had no young sons, James W had two sons under age 10,and Reuben had a son under 10, plus two sons age 10-15 and two sons age 16-18; John Biggs had a son age 10-15, while John and his wife were age 45 or older; Luke Biggs had only one son who was under age 10. So this then leaves only Reunen or John were were the likely father of Davis. Thisbe Anderson's family, in 1820, was on census page 219. Of the Biggs people who moved to Union Co IL in the 1820s,we know that one family was Drucilla Biggs who married Thisbe's brother Timothy Anderson. Family researchers all appear to agree that Drucilla was a daughter of Reuben Biggs, and she was born on 15 March 1805 in NC. Since Davis' birth date was believed to be 21 November 1805, this puts too few months between the births of Drucilla and Davis, unless one of the two dates is off by a year. In 1850, the first census year where each individual's name was shown, has Drucilla's age at 45 (census page 172B); Davis' age was age 43 and lived next to Drucilla. Hence, if the 1850 census was correct, then Davis was likely born in November 1806 or 1807, and he could have been a son of Reuben Biggs or John Biggs. Davis was not found on the 1860 Union Co census, but was there in 1870, age 64 (born 1806), and in 1880, age 74 (born in 1806).

        Davis Biggs lived next to Drucilla and Timothy Anderson in 1830 and in 1840 in Union Co IL. since he married Thisbe in Stewart Co, and since Reuben Biggs and sons moved from Stewart Co to Gibson Co in the 1820s, and the son from the 1820 Stewart Co census who was age 10-15 was not found in Gibson Co in 1830 (all other sons were in Gibson Co in 1830), then Davis must have been that missing son. Davis and Thisbe were deeded 30 acres which were first bought by Cornelius Anderson, Sr in 1819. Here Davis farmed and had a lime kiln. He was ordained in 1847 and pastored Limestone Baptist Church for one year and ten months. Thisbe died on 4 October 1856 at Cobden, Union Co and was buried in Old burial ground of Limestone Baptist Church, in Union Co. Davis then married Mrs Catherine _____ Burkey in 1857. Catherine was born 26 April 1815 in PA, and died on 7 July 1886 at Cobden. Her first marriage was with a Mr Parvin, with whom she had seven Parvin children. Davis died on 6 November 1887 in Union Co and was buried in Old burial ground of Limestone Baptist Church. He and Thisbe had seven children. The first two were daughters by 1830-

1.     Mary Biggs, b 1826-1830

2.     Nancy Biggs, 1826-1830

3.     William J Biggs, b abt 1830

4.     John J Biggs, b 1832

5.     Sarah Biggs, b 1835

6.     Mahala Biggs, b 1837

7.     Benjamin Franklin Biggs, b 28 Jan 1839

In 1819, Cornelius & Mary Scott Anderson came to Union Co., IL to purchase land. They purchased 182 acres of prime land in Cobden, but the remained in Stewart Co TN. In 1820, their daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, Thomas Ferrill, moved to Cobden, IL after purchasing 30 acres of land from Cornelius and Mary. Later, Elizabeth's brother, Timothy, and his wife, Druscilla Biggs Anderson, purchased 150 acres from his parents and moved to Cobden. In 1825, Thisbe Anderson and her husband, Davis W Biggs, moved to Cobden. Cornelius "Neely" Anderson and his wife and son moved to Cobden in 1836. When Cornelius died, Mary came to live with Neely.

On May 18, 1836, three acres were purchased by Davis Biggs, James Ferrill, Samuel Miller, Jacob Clutts, Jacob Wigle, Philip Clutts, Andrew Penrod, William Hagler, & Thomas Ferrill for six dollars from Timothy & Druscilla Anderson for the erection of a school and meeting house. The tract of land was described as follows: SW qtr of section No 7 beginning on the line that divides Timothy Anderson & Davis W Biggs land.

The United Baptist Limestone Church was founded in Sep 1837. It's location is this same tract of land. Sometime between 1837 & 1854 the first chuch burned and all records were destroyed.

Then, on the 22nd day of Jul 1854, Davis W & Thisbe Biggs donated to the trustees of the United Baptist Limestone Church (Elias Dilda, Joseph Sames, & Jacob Clutts) a certain tract of land being part of the SW quarter of section No 7, Township 11 South, Range 1 West. This donation may have been given to rebuild the church, but we are unable to locate positive information to support this theory. We do know that the church was built near the residence of Davis W Biggs and rebuilt in the same area after it burned.

Located about 100 yards south of the church you will find the first cemetery of Limestone Baptist Church. D W & Thisbe Biggs, along with many former members are buried there.

Union County was formed in 1818 from Johnson Co. There were one or two Biggs famililies in Union Co IL soon after then, in 1819. One was probably from KY: Isaac Biggs, Alexander Biggs, and John Biggs were living in Union Co about 1819. The 1850 census shows various unidentified Biggs adults (John, born 1813 in KY, Alexander, born 1816 in KY, and David, born 1811 in IL, and Jackson Biggs, born 1820 in IL) who would have been descendants of the just names three Biggs men from 1819.

        Drucilla Biggs [C1a5c2a3f], daughter of Reuben Biggs and Sally Watson, was born 16 March 1805 in Beaufort Co NC, and gew up in Stewart Co TN. She married Timothy Anderson on 19 September 1820, probably in Stewart Co; the 1820 census was taken on August 7, and she was still at home in that census. The 1850 Union Co. IL census gives her age as 45, thus born around 1805, and her birthplace as NC. Pre-1850 census records agree with this birth date.

        A few months after their marriage, Timothy and Drucilla moved to Union Co IL, where Timothy's father had purchased land in 1819. Timothy's sister Elizabeth and her husband, Thomas Ferrill, had already located there in December of that year. Timothy and Elizabeth were followed to Union Co in 1825 by his sister Thisbe and her husband, Davis Biggs, Drucilla's brother. Timothy's brother Cornelius "Neely" Anderson arrived with his wife and first child about 1836.

        Timothy was born 30 September 1799 in Montgomery Co TN, son of Cornelius Anderson (1773-1839) and Mary Scott (1777-1864). He was still living with his family in August 1820 when the Stewart Co census was taken. They were on census page 219 in the 1820 census; Drucilla's family was on census page 211 (Stewart Co had 23 census pages in 1820). Timothy died of dropsy, presumably at his home north of Cobden, Union Co on 24 June 1847. Drucilla died there on 17 December 1877. They lived in Union Co IL from the early 1820s, after they married. Their next door neighbor in 1830 was Drucilla's brother Davis Biggs. Timothy and Drucilla had four sons and one daughter by 1830, all born in Union Co IL. At his death in 1847 Timothy was survived by his wife, Drucilla, and by their 11 children, the oldest being 26 years of age and the youngest just under three years. All of Timothy and Drucilla's living sons except Magilbra served in the army during the Civil War. The oldest boys, Cornelius and Alfred, had died before the war began-

The county was created from Indian lands in 1823, so most pioneer White families didn't move there until then. Eliza's father was an exception; he went there in 1819. Eliza married Elihu C Mauldin in Haywood Co in 1829; in 1830 they lived close to Eliza's parents. Elihu was born in Edgefield District, SC on 9 January 1809 (age 20-29 in 1830; Eliza was age 15-19).

Kader, and other close relatives (Kader Biggs, Joel Cherry, Joseph Biggs, Wm Biggs, James Biggs) were members of Skewarkey Church in Martin Co in 1787, as they were mentioned in the September 1787 church minutes. These church members were adults then, so were likely Kader's brothers Joseph, James, and William Biggs, plus Joel Cherry [C1a5b4] who was Kader's mother's first cousin and who was known to lived in the area during these years. Kater and Hannah had seven children-

1.     Nancy Biggs, b 17 Jan 1769

Some of the Baptist members of Skewarkey Church attending in May and June 1780 were: William Biggs, Edward Byrd, Kader Biggs, John Ward (husband of Kader Biggs' sister Sarah Biggs [C1a5c2d]), Joel Cherry, Hannah Biggs, (Kedar's wife Hannah Davis), James Biggs; and Ann Biggs (Ann Phillips, second wife of Joseph Biggs [C1a5c2f]) who was visiting from Flat Swamp Church. There were five Baptist churches in Martin Co which worked with each other and whose members made vists from one to the other: Skewarkey, Flat Swamp, Conoho, Smithwick Creek, and Great Swamp Churches.

Some of the Skewarkey Church members named in March 1805 were: K. Biggs, Wm. Biggs, Reuben Ross, John Ferrill (who was a member of Saline Creek Baptist Church in Stewart Co TN in May 1810), Joel Cherry [C1a5b4], Levi Cone, Harriett Cherry, William Cherry, James Biggs, Asa Biggs, Elizabeth Byrd, Milly Ross, Mary Smithwick, Lydia Cherry (wife of Joel), Hannah Biggs, Winney Biggs, Mary Ross, Chloe Cone, Jemima Mitchell, Ann Cone, Daisy Gillford, Ann Biggs, Nancy Harrison, Milly Cone, Nancy Tice, Hannah Kennedy, Leah Leggitt, Bescy Cherry, Nancy Biggs, Penny Davis, and Smithwick.

Over the years, Kader's name was spelled Cader, Kader, and Kedar. For those times it was spelled with the letter K, in this docutment it, will be spelled Kader. (77,C)


        Kader Biggs [C1a5c2a3b], son of Reuben Biggs and Sally Watson, was born 12 September 1797 in Martin Co or Beaufort Co NC. He married Mary Morgan about 1819 or 1820 (they had no children in their home in 1820). They were living in Stewart County TN in 1820. Mary was born in NC on 21 December 1796 (born 1795-1804 in 1820 census, 1791-1800 in 1830, 1791-1800 in 1840, 52 in 1850, 64 in 1860). In his household in 1830 were three sons, one daughter, and his wife; in 1840 in Kader's home were five sons, four daughters, and his wife. Kader and Mary were still there in 1850 and in 1860, but Mary died on 28 August 1864. Her gravestone in Hart Cemetery at Dover, Stewart Co was done with a good quality cement, but amateurishly printed with letters set in the wet cement until it dried. Some of the words are misspelled, some of the letters are reversed, a Capital I was used for a 1, and a number 1 was used as a number 7, but the message is clear enough to get an accurate birth date, and also using ages given in census records. The gravestone also says "Wife of K Biggs" and said she was born "2I DeceMBer I196" where the gravestone maker use a letter I for a 1, a number 1 for a 7, and neatly scratched in the 96. She died "Age 61 years 9 Mouths 28 Days." From census records, we can see that her age when she died must have been 78 years, not 68. The gravestone maker was quite clear with the tools he had at hand, but he could not do arithmetic.

        Kader was living in Stewart Co in 1870 with his son William and many grandchildren. He died there on his birthday 12 September 1887 and was also {buried} in Hart Cemetery. His gravestone spelled his name Kader (not Cader). His children were-

1.     dau Biggs, b 1821-1825 (37jk)

2.     son Biggs, b 1821-1825, probably died about 1849 or 1850 because a 30 year old Frances Biggs and three children were living with Kader and Mary in Stewart Co in 1850. Those children were-

        a.     Sarah Biggs, b 1844 in Stewart Co TN. She was still living with her grandparents in 1860. (37nq)

        b.     Elizabeth Biggs, b 1845 (37n)

        c.     Martha Biggs, b 1849 (37n) (37jkn)

3.     son Biggs, b 1826-1830 (37jk)

4.     dau Biggs, b 1826-1830 (37k)

5.     Reuben Biggs, b 13 Jun 1829

6.     William Biggs, b 1835

7.     dau Biggs, b 1831-1835 (37k)

8.     son Biggs, b 1831-1835 (37k)

Living next door in 1820 was James W Biggs, born 1795-1804 and wife and two sons, plus Reuben Biggs, born 1776-1794 and wife and six sons and three daughters. The 1830 census, in addition to Kader, showed John Biggs, born 1760s, James Biggs, born 1790s, and Joel Biggs, born 1790s. Reuben Biggs from the 1820 census had moved west to Gibson Co; he was Kader's father, and any Biggs person in Gibson Co for the next generation were descendants of Reuben. James W Biggs was Kader's brother. Perhaps Joel Biggs was also a younger brother. (JC,4eh,37ijknqrsc)

        Martha Biggs [C1a6e1b], daughter of Jemima Cherry and James Biggs, was born 25 April 1783 in Martin Co NC. She married widower John Williams in 1799 or early 1800, probably in Martin Co. He was born in Bertie Co between 1756 and 1774, and left a Martin Co will dated 10 January 1805; he died soon afterwards. Since his eldest child from his first marriage was born in 1788, John, called John Williams Senr in the 1800 Martin Co census, was probably born in the early- to mid-1760s. After John died, Martha then married Joshua W Hassell about 1807. She and Joshua lived in Martin Co until his death. Martha died on 12 April 1860 at Williamston; she left a will dated 23 March 1857, and was apparently a widow at the time.

        Martha Ann Biggs [C1a5c2a6e2], daughter of Benjamin Franklin Biggs and Alsy Jane Starr, was born 7 June 1842 in MS (born in MS per 1850 census), or born in TX (per 1870 and 1880 census). In 1850 she lived in Rusk Co TX. "Martha A Biggs" married Henry P Vick in Rusk Co on 25 July 1862. He died by the mid- to late 1860s and Martha then married John K Spurgin about 1868 and lived in Collin Co. Her Biggs family had already moved to Collin Co in the 1860s, so it is likely that she and John married in Collin Co. John Spurgin was born 4 February 1819 in Washington Co TN. He and his first wife Julia Ann _____, born in 1825 in TN, moved to Warren Co IA from TN about 1849, then to TX in 1853. Wife Julia died in the early 1860s in TX. John operated the first cotton gin at Lucas, Collin Co. In 1870 he and Martha lived in Collin Co with many of his children from his marriage with Julia. In 1880 He and Martha lived six doors from her parents and four doors from her brother. John died in Collin Co on 2 March 1892 and was buried in Fitzhugh Cemetery at Forest Grove, Collin Co. Martha died 13 April 1924 and was also buried in Fitzhugh Cemetery. With Henry Vick she apparently had no children, or else none who survived beyond infancy; with John Spurgin she had at least four children, perhaps six, all born in Collin Co TX. Only two of Martha's six children were still alive in 1900-

a.     Oscar J Spurgin, b 22 Nov 1869, died 30 May 1892 and was buried in Fitzhugh Cemetery at Forest Grove, Collin Co. (247rsc)

b.     Robert Pavers Spurgin, b 5 Feb 1872 in Collin Co, drowned on 19 November 1935 in Collin Co, He was buried in Fitzhugh Cemetery at Forest Grove, Collin Co. "Mrs Tressee Spurgin" of McKinney was the informant for Robert's death certificate. She named his parents as "John K Spurgin" and "Martha Ann Biggs." Robert married Willie Ann Cook in 1900 and they lived with his widowed mother in Collin Co in 1900. Willie was born 1 March 1873 in Collin Co and died at McKinney, Collin Co on 19 February 1950. She was buried with Robert. Her parents were James W Cook (1849-1934) and Martha Ellen Bowman (1849-1928). Robert and Willie had twin daughters in Collin Co-

        1.     Ressie Spurgin, b 18 Apr 1902, and died on 5 October 1902. She was buried in Fitzhugh Cemetery at Forest Grove, Collin Co. (247c)

        2.     Tressye Spurgin, b 18 Apr 1902, married John Henry Click after 1930. He was born 22 June 1891 at Dalton, Cass Co TX, son of Michael Valentine Click and Mary Josephine Bennett, and died at McKinney, Collin Co on 6 October 1969. "Mrs Tressye Clck – Wife" was the informant for his death certificate. Tressye died on 12 June 1875 at McKinney and was buried next to John in Fitzhugh Cemetery at Forest Grove, Collin Co. Mr Norman Pharr was the informant for her death certificate. This was John Click's second married; his wife from the first married died in the late 1910s in Collin Co, leaving him two daughter, both born by June 1917. Tressye had no children. (M,247wfdc) (247suwfdc)

c.     Ida Spurgin, b 1874 (247s)

d.     Agnes Spurgin, b 1876 (247s)

There were other TN born Spurgin families in the Collin Co TX area by 1870, who would be of age to be John Spurgin's brothers: William Spurgin, born in 1821 and wife / dau Jane, born in 1843 in TN, and William's children born in IA in 1852 and born in TX from 1856; James (Moses?) Spurgin, born 1832 in TN, wife Charlotte born in AR in 1838.

John Spurgin and wife Julia had children: Isaac, born 1848 in TN; Jonathan B, born in 1849 in Warren Co IA; Elkana F, born 1851 in IA, Emily A, born 1854 in IA; James Buchanan, born 1856 in IA; Sarah Jane, born in Collin Co TX in 1859; and Caldonia Spurgin, born 1860 in Collin Co. Buried in Murphy Cemetery in Collin Co is the grave of Sarah Spurgin, born 19 Jan 1812, and died 21 Jan 1864.

There were only three Spurgin families found in TN in 1830 and 1840. They were in the northeast corner, William and Samuel Spurgin in Washington Co, and John Spurgin in neighboring Greene Co. John in Greene Co was age 40s, born in the 1780s, and had no boys of the age of John Spurgin who went to Collin Co TX, living in his home in 1830. In Washington Co, William and Samuel lived next to each other; Samuel had no son over the age of 5; William Spurgin did. He had two boys of the right age. So William Spurgin is the likely father of the John who went to Collin Co TX. (518j,117n,494nqm,247rs)


        Martha Emma Biggs [C1a5c2a4b5], daughter of Warren Biggs and Elizabeth Cherry Hassell, was born 8 September 1842 in Martin Co NC. She probably died by 1850 since she wasn't in the 1850 census. Perhaps she died by March 1844 because her sister Martha Hassell Biggs was given a very similar name. (81,1n)


        Martha Hassell Biggs [C1a5c2a4b6], daughter of Warren Biggs and Elizabeth Cherry Hassell, was born 5 March 1844 in Martin Co NC. She probably died by 1850 since she wasn't in the 1850 census. (81,1n)

        Mourning Biggs [C1a5c2e], daughter of Margaret Eastwood and Joseph Biggs, was born about 1763 in Tyrrell Co NC, and died before 15 February 1822. She married Wright Cherry about 1789. Her line is continued under his name.


        Nancy Biggs [C1a5c2a1], daughter of Kader Biggs and Hannah Davis, was born 17 January 1769 in Tyrrell Co NC. She was named in her father's 1810 will as "daughter Nancy Harrison." Nancy married James Harrison, son of John Harrison and Christian _____.

        Nehemiah Biggs [C1a5c2a3e], son of Reuben Biggs and Sally Watson, was born in 1808 in Beaufort Co NC (born 1801-1805 in 1830, age 42 in 1850). He married Jemima Ringold in Gibson Co on 8 July 1842, lived in Gibson Co, and apparently died there in the 1850s. In 1860 Jemima was still in Gibson Co, living among Ringold families, with her brother-in-law James B Biggs [C1a5c2a3c1] and his wife Elizabeth Thomason living a few doors away. Jemima was born in NC in 1816 (age 34 in 1850, no age given in 1860), daughter of John Ringold (1785 NC) and Mary _____ (1793 NC). Nehemiah and Jemima had five children-

1.     John Biggs, b 1841 (13nq)

        Penelope Biggs [C1a5c2a5], daughter of Kader Biggs and Hannah Davis, was born 17 September 1784 in NC. She married Robert Warren, son of John Hilson Warren and Mary _____. Robert was born 1 October 1771 in NC. Penelope probably died in Haywood Co TN. See John Biggs, Penelope's brother. He married Nancy Warren, sister of Robert. (77)


        Penelope Biggs [C1a5c2a2d], daughter of John Biggs and Nancy Warren, was born 11 September 1802 in Martin Co NC, and was a girl when her family moved to Stewart Co TN where she grew up. She married _____ Champion. In 1830 in Stewart Co there were just two Champion families: Jourdain Champion, aged in his fifties with a wife in her forties; and Joseph Champion, aged in his twenties with a wife of the same age. Joseph Champion and his wife had no children by the summer of 1830. In 1840 there were only two Champion males in Stewart Co: Orvil Champion and Benjamin Champion. The wives of both in 1840 were about ten years younger than Penelope would have been. Therefore Penelope's husband was probably Joseph Champion. Nothing else is known.

        This marriage to a Mr Champion may have happened after June 1842 because on that date "Penelope Biggs" was restored in the Saline Baptist Church "after a long absence." (128,77, C,37jk)


        Reuben Biggs [C1a5c2a3], son of Kader Biggs and Hannah Davis, was born 20 October 1775 at Williamston, Martin Co NC (his father still lived in Martin Co in 1800), and in 1800 lived in Beaufort Co (the county at the southeast edge of Martin Co). Reuben and his wife and children moved to Stewart Co TN soon after 1811, where he remained for about 5 or 6 years, returned to Beaufort Co NCX for a while, then in 1818 made the final move baclk to TN, settling in Stewart Co once again. They moved to Gibson Co TN soon after 1820. Rueben married Sally Watson about 1795 in NC. This marriage for her was a second marriage. Census records show that she was born in 1774 or before in the 1800 census, 1766-1784 in 1810, 1775 or before per 1820 census. Because she apparently had young teen children in 1800, she was likely married to their father by 1785, and Sally herself would then have been born about 1770 or soon before. The 1830 census has a much younger wife, born in the 1790s per 1830 census, 1790s in 1840, and was age 67 in 1850 (born 1783), if they both told the truth to the census taker. Reuben was born in the 1775-1784 years in the 1800 census, 1766-1784 in 1810, 1776-1794 in 1820, 1770s in 1830, 1780s in 1840, and age 75 in 1850 (born 1775). They had two female slaves in 1820, but none in 1830 or after.

        The Stewart Co and Gibson Co marriage records are sketchy before about 1830, so we cannot be certain when he married his second wife Matilda _____. Sally Watson was the one in the 1800 to 1820 censuses, and she had apparently been married before and had children from her first marriage who lived with or near her and Reuben until 1820. Reuben likely married his second wife Matilda in the 1820s in Stewart Co, after all his children were born. She was younger than Sally, born about 1783 in NC. Reuben died in 1858 or 1859 in Gibson Co TN; in 1830 to 1850 He lived in Gibson Co, and all Biggs families in the pre-1850 Gibson Co census were either Reuben or his sons and their families. All of Reuben's children were born in Martin Co and / or Beaufort Co NC, including the youngest, Reuben W, who was born about 1811. There is no good indication that Reuben had any daughters, other than Drucilla.

        Early TN tax lists generally include all white males age 21 thru age 50, and indicate whether they owned land or slaves. The Stewart Co 1810 tax list showed James W Biggs, John Biggs, Kader Biggs, Luke Biggs, and Reuben Biggs. Of these men, the only ones age 21 or older were Reuben (born 1775) and John (born 1780s). And these tax lists do not necessarily mean that someone lived in the county; it just show that they owned property there. So perhaps Reuben bought property from the prior owners while he was still in Beaufort Co NC in 1810, and put his older sons' names on the deed records, even though they were barely teens in 1810 and were still in NC.

        Reuben attended Tranter's Creek Baptist Church in Beaufort Co. His family's migration to TN in 1818 is described in the History of Tennessee and Tennesseans, page 2465: The journey was accomplished overland with teams and wagons, and it was seven weeks between the start and the arrival in Tennessee. The shelter and home of the family throughout this time being in the wagons and under the open sky by the roadside. They first stopped at Dover, in Stewart County, where they remained for five or six years, then came to Gibson County, buying land three miles northwest of Trenton, which continued to be the home of (Reuben) until late in life, after which he made his home with his son Zack. He died at the age of 83. The maiden name of his first wife was Watson, who was the mother of all his children, his sons being named James, Kader, Luke, Amariah, Nehemiah, Zack and William. Note that this was written 55 years after Reuben died, and after two children had moved to IL and were forgotten by historians in 1913. Otherwise, it was quite accurate. (Source 147)

        There were two unidentified White females in Reuben's home in 1820; they were born 1796-1804. Living next door in 1820 were the eldest two sons James and Kader, so these two extra young women in Reuben's home would not be James' and Kader's wives. Hence, they may have been two unmarried adult daughters from Sally Watson's first marriage. There were no early marriages found in Stewart Co or in Gibson Counties with Biggs women before 1830; there were also no Watson marriages in Stewart or Gibson Co Counties, in case the family name of these two young women was Watson. These two young women were gone in 1830. They also could have been younger sisters of Reuben's wife Matilda since he had married his second wife in the early 1820s. Or they could have been step-daughters, daughters from his first wife Sally's first marriage. Reuben's children were-

a.     James W Biggs, b 1796 (had own home next door in 1820) (4eh,37i)

b.     Kader Bigg, b 12 Sep 1797 (had own home next door in 1820) (4eh,37i)

c.     Luke Biggs, b 19 Nov 1798 (at home in 1820, age 16 - 25) (4eh,37i)

d.     Amariah Biggs, b 10 Dec 1802 (at home in 1820, age 16 - 18) (4h,37i)

e.     Nehemiah Biggs, b 1804 (at home in 1820, age 16 - 18) (4h,37i)

g.     Davis W Biggs, b 21 Nov 1805 (at home in 1820, age 10-15) (4h,37i)

h.     dau Biggs, b 1801-1810. She may actually have been son Zachariah, a baby in 1810 and mistaken for a daughter in the census. (4h)

h.     Zachariah Biggs, b 1810 (at home in 1820, age age 10-15)

i.      Reuben William Biggs, b 1811 (age under 10 in 1820)

In 1800 Beaufort Co NC there was a young teenage boy in Reuben's home; he may have been a young brother or step-son. The boy was too old to be a son of Reuben. There were also two daughters, one age under 10 and one was a young teen. The teeage girl must have been a step-daughter. Whether the young daughter was Reuben's or Sally's from her first marriage is not known. Sally's two daughters from the 1800 census came to TN with Sally and Reuben. (JY, 128,77, 148,4e,37i, 13mjkn)
