Thanks to everyone who has shared information on Miles BIGLEY and families.

Miles married Catharine GRUBER 1841-1923, the oldest daughter of Peter GRUBER 1815-1886 and Lydia MOHNEY 1820-1853. Peter is the oldest brother of my great-grandfather John GRUBER, Jr. 1824-1904. They were all in Clarion County, PA to begin, and then Peter and family, and brother Henry 1819-1902 and family, and brother George 1828-1904 and family, moved to Isabella County, Michigan, after the Civil War.

Thanks to Gail Siverling Dulgar and all that she sent me a few years ago! I've worked a lot on this family this last week and have compiled a report. This site will not let me attach a word document. Please email me and I will send it to you. It is 13 pages long with sources and notes. Here is infor without sources.

You can see that I have 123 source citations, but there's not room to add them here.

I also can share the ancestry of Catharine GRUBER, wife of Miles BIGLEY.

Question for Gail: Did you ever find any more documentation for the second group of children for Miles?

Question for Patrick Henry: Is James BIGHLEY born 1860 really a child of John & Barbara BIGHLEY? They were in their 50s or 60s when he was born. Maybe a grandchild?

Question for everyone: Who was Gilbert McLAIN born 1858, and adopted by John & Barbara as listed in 1860 census?

Please send any questions or comments to me. Thanks! I like to share and am always glad when others do likewise.
