Who is your Mother in law and you live in Canton I have relatives somewhere in Canton. I have not been to Ohio since 1974.
My Dad was from Marietta and he had a brother named Floyd and his wife was Edna who used to live in Canton. He used to go to the Kiggans reunion in Marietta every year.
They had both been deceased for a while since the 70 or 80's.
Who is your Mother in law by chance ask her if she knew Robert "Bob" Kiggans who used to live in TX. My moms name was Faye. His 2nd wifes name was Frances
That was my Dad and he knew most of the Kiggans in Ohio
He did about 25 Years of Research on the Kiggans Family all over the US.
I have 15 3 inch Ring Binders with Kiggans info from all over the US.
Do you know they have a Kiggans Reunion in Marietta evey July. I have not gotten a invitation this year yet.
I live in TX but all of my dads family still lives in Marietta area of Ohio some live in Watertown some in other parts.
His sister lived in Dart until about a year ago she passed away her name was Ruth Rake.
I would love to get your family info for my files. I have all of my Dads genealogy records and believe me it is extensive stuff on the Kiggans of the US of various spellings I even have James Kiggans obit and Mary Krafts death cert. I just had a lady who lives in Dallas Tx come up here about 2 months ago to look at some of the stuff my dad did.
I want to make a book in Honor of my Dads work but know it will be a huge task to take on because there is so much stuff I dont know where to begin.
My dad left it all to me when he died in 1995. All of it is in Hard Copy I have been working on my Mothers family for the last 5 years.
If you would like any info from me just ask. Just give me a little time because like i said there is 15 binders to go through it includes census records obits death cert marriage licenses and records and numerous pictures.
You are probably already in my data but will need names back as far as you can go to James and Mary Craft/Kraft
Hope to hear from you soon

If you will send me your phone number via email I will call you I have free long distance in the US.
