Wiggs, Windsor, 1793, Wayne Co, NC
Fwd. message from Jimmy Wiggs:
I have Windsor Wiggs in my data base and show him marrying Sarah Barefoot in 1816 in Edgecombe Co, NC; 1820 NC, Wayne Co.; 1830-1850 IN, Randolph Co.He was a Quaker, died in 1856 in Randolph Co, IN and is buried in a Quaker cemetery near Spartanburg.I do not show a father for him and have a note which says he may be illegitimate based on a property record of Isabel Wiggs but I have not been able to put my hands on that record yet. Another note states he migrated to IN in 1826.Another note refers to property records on him back in Wayne Co, NC in the 1817-1823 time frame.I have a Thomas Wiggs born about 1765 in Dobbs Co., NC with two marriages in NC.First to a woman, maiden name Brown, and who apparently died early shortly before 1800; second marriage about 1800 to an unknown woman both in Wayne Co, NC.He was listed on a property record in Johnston Co, NC in 1798 and on the 1800-1840 cencuses of Wayne Co, NC.Have nothing after that.He had at least 9 children: 3 males whom I have possible names of Thomas, Needham and Lazarus, and 6 females all unknown.I suspect that he is the son of John Wiggs and Alce(Alice) Jernigan.This John Wiggs was born in Isle of Wight, VA and is believed to have been a Quaker although I do not have a record to document that.The son, Thomas, married and remained in Wayne Co., NC.Needham and Lazarus migrated to Union Co., IL and remained there.The father, Thomas, could be Windsor's father through Isabel as his first wife, but I do not have anything to confirm that.Place, time, etc. certainly support the probability of that.
