I would like to interact with people researching this family. There is a possible connection with a Biggs family whom I've been researching.
My gggrandmother was Laura A. Biggs, b.1848 in Indiana. Her known siblings were Martha E. (b.around 1850) and Harvey (b.1854). They were orphans living with Nancy Wood (b.1807 in Virginia) in Covington, Indiana in 1860.
The 1880 census shows Harvey Biggs in Warren Co. living with the family of Zachariah Clem. Zachariah's cousin was married to Newton Biggs Hiatt, son of Isom Hiatt and Elizabeth Biggs. This Elizabeth was a daughter of Josiah. Her brothers were Reuben, Uriah, Daniel, Josiah, and William.
Another connection is that the Clems were also related to the Wood family of Virginia. Also, a Martha Biggs is found on the 1870 census of Johnson Co.,Indiana living with the Alexander family. Louisa Alexander was married to a Clem.
The Fountain County Census of 1830 shows Josiah's son Uriah (md. Sarah Smith in Ohio 1824) and William (married Margaret Forman in Ohio).
If anyone has information on these families, I'd like to hear from you.
