Hi Bob, (embarrassed that I mistook you for Rosemary)!!
James Dwiggins that married Malinda Dowell 1850 in Muskingum was in the same CoF 97th Ohio Infantry as Stephen Dwiggins in Muskingum Co.I tried to connect them but the Civil War documents did not show any connection.James and Malinda had, at least, 6 children.Daniel 1851, Grace 1853 who married Harold Ray Roberts, Sarah E. 1855-1898, Artimessa J. who married Lyman A. Baughman, Eunice M. 1859 don't know when she died but record shows she is buried Hanover Cemetery Licking Co.,, Emma Frances 1861-1936 married Hickman.Lyman and Artimessia are on the 1880 and 1900 Census for Muskingum Co.
Stephen married Melvina Wilson in 1847 Muskingum Co. and they had 7 children.James 1858-1895, Clemenine D. 1850-1938 married Ikehorn, Nancy J. 1851-1927 married William Austin, Daniel L. 1854-1937 married Mary Ann Boyd (some have this Daniel belonging to James but this Daniel was younger), Lafayette 1858-ukn married Roseanna Jones, Stephen Douglas 1860-1940, Elia A. 1868-1920 married Sarah E. Jones.
I read once of a complaint made in court on the Administration of the Estate of James (d. 1863) by Stockton Frazier but I didn't print it and can't find it now.
Hannah of the 1840 Census of Muskingum Co. may have been the widow of Daniel and she is living with the 1830 80-90 year old female in 1840 at 100.She also has two sons born 1820-1825.
Sylvester has children in 1830 and 1840 that are not with him in 1850.3 sons born 1820-30 and 3 daughters born 1820-30.Do you have any information on the lawsuit against him where he lost a judgement of $20,000 and his property was seized in Guernsey Co.?
