Just a friendly note: Joseph Willis Biggs (son of John & Mary Mason Biggs) had no descendants. He died as a young man. James was the son of Willis Biggs (son of Joel and wife Unk Biggs, brother of John). They are often confused as Willis was staying with John and Mary at the time of his marriage to Mary Williams in 1793 in Charlotte City, VA. Joel had lost his second wife and had a family of young children and was preparing to make the trip to Georgia. I have no information on Joel's first wife, the mother of Willis and several other sons. I find that many confuse Joseph Willis Biggs and Willis Biggs but there was about 10 years different in their ages, Willis being the eldest.
