I will add more to the homepage later. If anyone out there has any information to this geneology please let me know. What we have a mystery about is the "Pigg" side. Through the grapevine we understand they were somekind of an American Indian descent. Again, all we have is Henry Reams Pigg; 6/13/1849 to 4/17/1891. Whom married Melinda Cook; 1/28/1851 to 12/25/1897.

Enjoy!
