Abraham Stiggers is my great-Uncle and his wife's name was Laura Myhand-Stiggers (she died a number of years ago. I am the youngest granddaughter of his brother and sister-in-law (Johnnie and Historia Stiggers) from Lanett, Alabama. My mother (Elvira Stiggers-Wilson) is the daughter of Johnnie and Historia Stiggers and the niece of Abraham Stiggers. So, I guess that makes us 3rd cousins. We live in Fairburn, Georgia about 1 hour from West Point, GA and Lanett, Alabama.

Hello to all that posted a message to my query. Some of you did not leasve any forwarding information, therefore I could not contact you. There are several people researching the Stiggers lineage. I am one of them, and I am a historian/researcher. Evidently there are more than one reunion of Stiggers going on !!! We would like to combine them all, if we can get all of the committees to agree. We all are connected, one way are another and would like for us all to come together a a huge reunion. My husband's grandfather was Ben Stiggers, his siblings were: Lawyer, George, Lottie,Minnie, Willie,Hattie M. Stiggers all of Westpoint, GA. Their father's name was Elawyer, mother Lottie Heflin Stiggers. If you would like to, you can contact me directly at: MSSISI@AOL.COM I would appreciate any and all responses. Please do not respond to this board, I do not check it often as you may know.
