Earliest known information is from 1850 Federal Census
Laurel Township, Hocking Co., Ohio Joseph Sigman age 49, Farmer b: Pennsylvania Nelly (Nellie)Sigman age 47 b: Ohio Andrew Sigman, age 16, Laborer b:Ohio Hazekiah Sigman, age 13 b: Ohio James Sigman, age 11 b: Ohio Joseph Sigman, age 9 b: Ohio Thomas sigman, age 6 b: Ohio Pheby Sigman, age 4, b: Ohio Susan Sigman, age 2, b: Ohio
In the 1860 Census I find a Benjamin age 27 with the family born in Ohio and no Andrew.Andrew and Benjamin may be one in same?
This family is living near Amos Nihizer and Rachel (Sigman) his wife.With their daughter Emily.I believe that I am descended from the Nihizer's son Joseph.Possibly William Joseph.
I have traced a cousin of my great grandfather Lester Nihiser who was living with his cousin Joseph Sigman possibly the son of Benjamin Sigman and Mary Ann Diltshaver.
