son of John Sr. Wiggins and Polly Nichols, buried in same cemetery, this Wiggins family started moving to Westernville in the 1790s, his parents between 1801-1810 from Saratoga Co. following John Jr brother's Jacob and Anning. John Jr must have come with his brothers to have married before his parents moved to Westernville. Most of his siblings, except brother George who stayed in Malta, NY, moved to Oneida county- 3 sisters whereabouts still need to be found.

John Jr married Hannah ELDRIDGE, 11-13-1796 in Rome, he died 1846/8. They had 9 Ch: James, John, Mary Wilson, Casey, Alexander, Sally Stein, Polly, Elizabeth Caup?, Hannah Petrie.

1850 Rome Hannah is living with married dau. Hannah Petrie, and not found after then so dies 1851-59.

listed as a Western twsp land owner in 1814, I have a copy of his Will and John leaves $10 to each of his son's yet $5-600 to his daughters. Does she have a sister Sally? Have her

Johns 1845 Will Vol 7-8 of 1841-8, pg 198, names all ch but James and Polly, who must have died young. attached.

I speculate the undated John T Wiggins in this cemetery is their son, but I need more documents as I do not have the middle initial to be sure.
