I have found my husband's maternal side of Bigby as far back as this James Bigby, Sr. b.09/06/1778 Sweetwater,TN. Father unknown Bigby, mother-Elizabeth Hicks b. about 1758 Cherokee Nation East, GA. His wife was Catherine Foreman b.4/17/1785 Cherokee Nation East, TN, she belonged to the Paint(Gourd)Clan of the Cherokee Nation. Children:Mary Ann b. 08/09/1802 Cass Co. GA;Jennie b.about 1804;Thomas Wilson b.02/22/1806(my husband's line);James, Jr. b. about 1808; Elizabeth b. about 1810;Sallie b. about 1814;Jackson b. 1817;Susie b. about 1820;Malinda Jane b. 07/06/1822 TN; & Wiley b. about 1824. Have more on spouses, death, and marriage dates, etc. if needed to track down this line further. I also have a bit further back on Elizabeth Hick's. But Have arrived ata stand-still with the Bigby ancestry. I would greatly appreciate finding more!! Thanks!
