Margaret was the daughter of Anthony Clark, Sr. & Mary E. Oats. She married Robert Bigham 28 Mar 1810 in Lincoln Co., NC. They moved to Rutherford Co., TN in 1815. Robert died in 1836.
Margaret & Robert had nine children: Samuel Watson, Mary Ann (Morris), Oliver Harris, Moses Swan,Margaret (Scott), "Ail" (Elihu Hall), Robert Patton, Ursula (Bates)& William Nix.
In October 1851 she was in the wagon train with her children & grandchildren that left Bedford Co., TN for Bell Co., TX. They settled on the Leon river and a valley which was named Tennessee Valley because it reminded them of their home in Tennessee.
Family tradition is she was buried at Tennessee Valley and when the dam was built her grave was moved to Resthaven Cemetery. from the research of Frances (Mays) McFarland
