  • Notes 
    • In 1850, in the US Agricultural Census of York County, SC, there is an entry for the estate of William Biggers. Since we find this William, with Cynthia, in 1860, this is not him. However, it does not appear to be a brother or nephew either. So, perhaps the story of the Irish flight is not as accurate as it might be.

      In the enumeration, William Biggers estate is enumerated after Davis M. Watron, and before John Price, James E Wilson, William Anderson and William E Anderson. That makes me think that either Davis Watron or John Price is connected to the Biggers family.
