Mr. Eubanks: Think I emailed you last year re Zale Whitman (my great-grandfather) who married Mary Wiggs in Pike Co . 1854. Mary Wiggs Whitman is buried with Zale Whitman in Williams cemetery in Pike Co . Indiana and her date of death on those records is given as Feb. 15, 1878. You may not have a record of all the Wiggs/Whitman children but I have now compiled a list of 12 (2 died soon after birth); howevever my reason for email is in viewing microfilm of Pike Co. newspaper I came across in a 12/1917 issued an item re Vernie Eubanks saying "Vernie Eubanks was home from Camp Taylor, on furlough, last week and spent several days visiting his parents, Trustee W.F. Eubanks and wife of Jefferson township". This may not be noteworthy to you but if it is let me know and I will copy this page and send to you. I only noted the Dec. 1917. Would appreciate hearing from you if you have any informtion on the origin of Zale Whitman, husband of Mary Wiggs.
Thank you. Nancy

I had been thinking that perhaps I had run across conflicting data regarding Martha Jane Wiggs. You have her listed (above) as marrying Darius Barrett on 21 September, 1851 in Pike County, Indiana. There appears to be a marriage for a Martha Jane Wiggs on 26 February, 1852 in Pike County, Indiana -- to Peyton Pancake.

Now I'm wondering if it's possible that the Martha Jane Wiggs who married Peyton Pancake could possibly be the former Martha Jane Coleman, widow of William Carroll Wiggs who died in 1849. As a widow, her name would have been Martha Jane Wiggs, would it not?

Do you know whether or not Martha Jane Coleman remarried after the death of William C. Wiggs?

I'm sorry that I missed your note and for the late reply. You have a good point and I will ask around and try to find an answer. One posible clue might come from the 1860 census if we can find her age
