A John Dwigans was living in Guernsey Co during the same period as James, probably a brother.Had a daughter Mary Ann who married my G. G Grandfather Joseph Hill
John also had a son James who is believed to be the James Dwigans living inMuskinghum Co, Ohio in 1850.Married 3 AUG 1850, , Muskingum Co., Ohio to Melinda Dowe.James died 1863 in Bowling Green, Ky (Civil War).May have had 7 children.
This Dwigans line is probably related to the North Carolina Dwigans line.Both came from Maryland.I have a long discertation on the Dwigans of Maryland from research I did several years ago in the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
