Hello, I need to know all the Biggers. My name is Sandra and i live in Dallas. I was wondering why my family was so small and why we never have any Reunions. I know that all Biggers are not related but when i look in the Residence Pages, I notice that there wasn't many. So just needing to know who my family is.

Dear Sandra in Dallas,
I would be more than happy to help. Maybe you can tell me what you already know about the Biggers and we can start from there. E-mail: bigsdigs@verizon.net. Good Hunting! Robert Biggers

Dear Les,
I am familiar with your line but it is not my line. At one time I thought my line was part of yours. The problem I have is with the Matthew's children's birthdates. Matthew (1695-1770) has children: Jane (b.1723), Samuel (b.1735), Thomas (b.1750), John (b.1760), James (unk.), and Elizabeth (unk). Having children over the span of at least 37 years is not unheard of but very rare. Good Hunting!

I must dyslexic! The birth date for Jane should be 1732 not 1723. Sorry!

I also found another mistake. John Bigger born 1760 is the son of Samuel Bigger, Thomas's brother. The John Bigger that is the brother of Thomas was older than Thomas but I don't have the date of his birth either.

It seems I am connected to Joseph Bigger 1771 - 1835 married to Sarah Reese. I have some family notes showing Joseph's father to be John Bigger 1734-1796, married to Hanna Brown. Do you have any information on this grouping of Biggers? I am trying to go back to their country of origin. I recently visited Scotland and found many Biggers there. I learned many of them went to Ireland and then to the US. I'm trying to establish a Scottish connection. Can you help?

I am afraid I don't have any further information. I only recently connected Elias to John Starke through an internet contact.
I show Elias born in Cabarras Co. abt. 1809 and died in Anson Co. about 1853. Elias married Lucy Eunice Thomas about 1832. They bore 5 children and died young leaving orphaned children to live with the maternal grandparents, Jacob and Elizabeth Edwards Thomas.
I would be interested in any information you have to share.
