margie. you don't say how old this WR Sigman is or where he was born. On the 1850 Panola County MS census there is a William R. Sigman, age 31, TN. On the 1860 Panola County MS census he is only listed as W.R. Sigman. age 41, TN. Have not found him or his family after that. He was the son of Abraham and Sally (Sarah) Sigman. Their daughters names were Mary C. & Nancy C. Sigman, there was a Francis but she was not listed after 1850 census.
