My ggggrandfather was Henry Wiggs who was born in North Carolina in 1802 or 1803. Sometime before 1827, he married Anna, who was born in North Carolina in 1801. Henry and Anna were living in or near Goldsboro, Wayne County, NC, in 1830. They had two children, including my gggrandfather, William Thomas (Tom) Wiggs, who was born in Goldsboro in 1829. In 1831, the family moved to Sandcreek Township, Bartholmew County, Indiana. Henry and Anna had two more children and were living in Sandcreek Township in 1840. By 1850, the family had moved to Columbus Township in Bartholmew County. The family was living in Columbus Township in 1860 and 1870. Anna died sometime before 1875; Henry had moved to Hollywood Township, Carver County, Minnesota, by 1875. In 1880, Henry had remarried and was living in McLeod County, Minnesota.
We would very much like to know about Henry's father and grandfather. We were hopeful that Henry's grandfather was John Wiggs, who served in the North Carolina infantry and calvary during the Revolutionary War. On the other hand, Henry may have been a Quaker because Sandcreek Township was settled for the most part by Quakers from North Carolina who moved to Indiana because they opposed slavery. If you have any ideas, please pass them on. I will mail you what information I have on the Wiggs family in Indiana and Minnesota.
