Re: Nancy J. Legans( Liggens)
I have some information on a branch of this family from Lewis Leggins (this is how my family has spelled it).
Lewis Leggins born Apr 1824 in Kentucky, USA died about 1900 in probably Washington Co, Missouri.He was married to Susan Sparks on 11 Feb 1841.
Susan Sparks (dau of William Sparks and Nancy Boden) born about 1824 in Kentucky and died 23 Aug 1886 in Putnam co, Missouri.
I have them with 11 children, Nancy Jane Leggins (who married a Richmond) as the second oldest.Born about 1842 in Indiana and died in Oct 1877.
I am decended from Stephen Roswell Leggins, born about 1850.
Let me know if you would like more info or if you have some to share.
