Try looking in the area of Guilford Court House, North Carolina. That is the area were the Dwiggins that settled in Wayne County Indiana came from. They stopped in Western Ohio just east of Richmond Indiana.

My great grandmother was Mary Ellen Dwiggins born May 6, 1857. I didn't know who her parents were until I read your message. What is the connection between Joseph Dwiggins born in 1832 and John Joseph Dwiggins born in 1828? Mary Ellen married Laurence Alexander Haigler.

I read you posting and I was wondering if you had the names of
Soloman Dwiggins' children. I have been told that my Gr-Gr Grandfather's name was Soloman. But the date of his birth (that you list) and the date that I have for my Gr-Grandfather, Soloman's son, Well it would make Soloman only 12 yrs old when he had kids. But if you had the names of his children then I would be able to tell.you can e-mail me....moomer56@aol.com
Thanks,

Hi, I am searching for the parents of Ellen McGinnis, Married to John Joseph Dwiggins. They are Gr Gr Grand Parents of mine. Sarah Ellen Dwiggins married John Steven Ruckman. They are my great grandparents. From West Alton and then Creve Coeur MO. Finding Ellens parents has been a real challenge because they were Married early in 1850 in Huntington, Indiana and Ellen was born in Ohio. That is really all the info I have on her. Any help would be appreciated. email me at jennapendleton@yahoo.com.... Thanks jenna

Well....what happened to Elijah and and Elizabeth Howard Dwiggins?? and their children?? How about John C Dwiggins who was married to Margaret Ring and their children. John Walker Dwiggins is our side of the Dwiggins, who married Mary Josephine Mintert, and his father was John Joseph Dwiggins and Ellen McGinnis as well.
I am pretty sure Rebecca's maiden name was Knott...sisters I think married brothers, I don't have my book handy, but I am pretty sure Rebecca was Rebecca Knott, I will look it up and get back with you.
