William McCreary Bigham came to Jack County, Texas from Ellis County, Texas about 1885 as his wife, Eliza Ellen Dunham (Donham) died there in 1889. They lived 14 miles N 23 E of Jacksboro maybe around Newport. Bigham received a patent from State of Texas for 160 acres on Crooked Creek on 24 Nov 1890 ... described by metes and bounds as beginning at the NE corner of a survey in the name of Jas. Henry, etc. bounded by M Putman Survey, John Raburn (son-in-law) Survey and T. H Bigam (Thomas Harrison Bigham - son) survey etc
William McCreary Bigham died Aug 1898 in Jack County. Before he died, some of his heirs who lived in Indian Territory, Southern District, Oklahoma, made a deed dated 8 Jan 1898 in which Burr K Bigham (son), T. H. Bigham (son), Susan Annie Bigham Kennedy (dau) and her husband Howard Kennedy, and Rose Alice Bigham Irvin (dau) and her husband, Newton Bill Irvin conveyed the interest they now have or may hereafter have in the same 160 acres on Crooked Creek above in Jack County Texas to Edwin Timothy Bigham (another son) as E. T. Bigham provided support and maintain and care for W. M. C. Bigham (William McCreary Bigham) during the remainder of his natural life. - Where is this land? Was William McCreary Bigham and wife, Eliza Ellen Dunham Bigham buried on this land as they do not appear in any transcribed cemeteries known to exist in Jack County, Texas - Burr K. Bigham lived for a time in Montague Co TX and Edwin T. Bigham also relocated later to Jefferson County, Oklahoma after his father, William McCreary Bigham died.
