It is nice to hear from someone else doing research on the George Piggott family.How do you descend from George Washington Piggott?My line goes like this:
George Washington and Catherine Allen Howland Piggott William Henry and Elizabeth Edwards Cannon Piggott William Cannon and Hazel Rebecca Madsen Piggott William Madsen and Blanche Theora Barker Piggott Thomas Lynn and Joyce Piggott Smedley Leslie Ann Smedley Ballou
I have Sarah Hull's line back quite a ways.George Piggot is still somewhat of a mystery.According to family tradition, his father was the Lord Mayor of London and disowned George for marrying a quaker girl, Sarah Hull.I am still trying to find something that proves whether this is true or not.
I have been corresponding with someone who thinks George may have led a double life of sorts because he was a distiller and the Lord Mayor of London thing may have just been a story to hide the real truth.I think there may be something to her suspiscions, but still not sure.
If you like, I could send you all info I have.
Do you know any specific details about George Washington Piggott supposedly being in the Black Hawk War and having a Black Hawk medal and sword?I would be interested to know where these items are.
