Hi there,

I have some conflicting information.

Joseph Dwiggins b. 1832 and Married to Virginia Maria Thomas was my g-g-grandfather. They had 7 children:

1. Bernard (proper name Joseph Bernard) b. 1855 married to Annie Grove on 4/19/1883.
2. Mary Odilia Dwiggins b. 3/5/1857 married to Joseph Engelmann on 2/12/1890
3. Margaret or Margaretha b. 1861
4. John R. Dwiggins b. 2/23/1866 married to Anna Maria Echele on 2/27/1889.
5. Matilda b. 1868ish
6. James b. 1872ish
7. Albert Joseph Dwiggins b. 4/16/1874 married to Theresa Ida Mae Saucier on 10/18/1899 (He is my g-grandfather).
----------------------------------------------------------

Joseph was the son of Elijah Dwiggins and Elizabeth Howard from Frankton, IN. Joseph and 2 of his brothers left IN for CA in search of gold but 2 of them landed in the Portage des Sioux area after their barge sunk crossing the Mississippi River.

Elijah Dwiggins is the son of John C. Dwiggins, JR who was married to Margaret Ring from NC. Elijah was one of 13 children for them.

From there it is under some dispute who the father of John C. Dwiggins, Jr is. Is he the Robert Dwiggins/Lidia Hunt offspring, or the son of John Dwiggins/Spouse Unknown? Both resided in NC, and the county names escapes me at the moment. I presume the latter, but that's my opinion.

Thanks, Dave
