Notes


Reverend William Harrison BIGHAM Sr.

HISTORY: He was a Presbyterian Minister throughout Western Tennessee and Southeastern Missouri. From the book "A History of Kentucky Baptists from 1769 to 1885" by J. H. Spencer Book #976.8K2s Vol 2 Little River Association, William BIGHAM, was a pious, zealous, and useful minister of Jesus. He united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in Caldwell County, early in life; and was set apart to the ministry, by that fraternity, about 1822. He labored several years, first in West Tennessee, and afterwards in the southern part of Missouri: but finally moved back to Kentucky, and settled in Livingston County. Here he united with the Baptists, and was ordained to the pastoral care of Dyers Hill Church. In August 1852, he was appointed missionary in the western part of Little River Association, and immediately left for this field of labor. But he was soon attacked by a malignant fever, of which he died 23 Sep 1852, in the 56th year of his age. He had labored in the ministry, with great success, about 30 years.

In Caldwell County, Kentucky William and Patience are on a Deed dated 10 Sep 1833.

William and Patience sold land in Tippah County, Mississippi on 16 March 1837.
