To Julie and the post before her! I have references to the Piggotts in one of my family trees. Julie, your husband is descended from Joseph, son of Captain James Piggott.Assenath Piggott was Joseph's next younger sister.She married into the Patterson family, my grandmother's patrilineal line.
I show Assenath Piggott b. 1791 in St. Clair County, Ill. She is my greatx3 grandmother on my grandmother's father's side.Assenath married William Patterson of Hillsborough N.C. and they both died in St. Louis Cty MO; Assenath died in 1871 and William in 1860.
