My Henry and his first wife, Lizzie had a number of daughters. I believe he married a second time and had 3 sons but this was in the 1870s and 1880s. I do have a Henry Wiggers, Sr.'s death certificate with H.L. Wiggers, Jr. as the signed informant. Henry Sr was born in 1821 and died 5/3/13. It just lists his birthplace as Germany. His father was Lugwig and mother shown as unknown. Perhaps he was the uncle to my Henry? Where in Germany did your Henry hail?
The info below is also posted in another Wiggers posting for Jan.
Let me know if you find a connection!
My great-great-great-great grandfather, Henry Wiggers, was born somewhere in Westfalen Germany or Holland around 1830/32. He died in Cincinnati Ohio around 1910. Is your family from Westfalen?
I don't know much about him in that timeframe. He was married to a woman from Westfalen named Lizzie, born around 1833. They had many daughters:, Mary (my ggg grandmother) born 1859 in Cincinnati,

Is there a connection? Please let me know. We have been trying to find out where Henry and Lizzie Wiggers came from in Germany (or possibly Holland for Henry)
