the parents of Joseph Diggins who married Mary Houp were Samuel Diggins and Catharine Fisher. Samuel was born in 1794. they had 9 children, David, Elizabeth, Lewis, Nancy, Joseph, Samuel, Peter, Henry and Jesse. you may want to contact Keith Fisher @ firstname.lastname@example.org; he has scads of info on the Fisher family. he also told me there is a book in the Huntington Co. Historical Soc. titled "The Diggins Family" i am trying to track down a copy. Samuel (the 1st) may be the son of John Diggins who married a woman of the Mohawk Indian tribe. i know my grand- father had it in his family history, but don't know anything beyond that.j.
