I have reason to believe that my ggrandfather, Henry Williams (b. 1841 in Indiana), was the son of Nancy Biggs and Henry Williams (b. 1800 in Tennessee). Nancy Biggs (b. 1799 in North Carolina) was the daughter of Willis Biggs and Mary Williams. My Henry Williams married Malinda Murphy, nee Foster, in 1873 in Weakley Co., Tenn. I'm looking for any information that might help me determine if my ggf is this same Henry Williams. He also went by Henry C. Williams. He moved to Tenn before 1865 and fought for the Confederacy.

Hi Sheila,

Nice to hear from you. I'm still working on my Biggs connection. Nancy Biggs (b. 8/7/1799 in Orange Co. NC), Daughter of Willis Biggs (aka Joseph Willis Biggs, d. around 1812 - War of 1812)and Mary Williams (b. 1769, died 2/25/1859 in Hagerstown, Indiana) married my gg grandfather, Henry Williams. Henry was the son of Joseph Williams and Sophia Thornburgh (b. 12/3/1780, Guilford Co. NC) - she was a Quaker, I'm not sure about him yet.

Henry and Nancy had several children, one of whom was Henry, born 1841 in Indiana, Prob. Wayne Co. He went south before the Civil War and wound up in Weakley Co. Tennessee, and marrying Malinda Murphy, nee Foster, April 2, 1873. Anything at all you have on the family of Nancy Biggs and her ancestors and Henry Williams would really be appreciated. These families were in Wayne Co., Indiana and Jefferson Co., TN as you said. Let me know what you need, and I'll give you what I have and will keep in touch on anything new I find.



BIGGS families yours and mine
