Events
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Military Service, War of 1812

James Biggs was discharged 30 Jun 1815 and was a member of Captain 
Johnson's Company, 2nd Regiment.

2. Cemetery, 1880, Ooltewah, Hamilton Co, TN

James Biggs is suppose to be buried in the Montgomery Cemetery but he 
doesn't seem to have a headstone.

3. 1840 Census, Jefferson Co, TN

#317 James Biggs appears with (2)m under 5; (2)m 5-10; (1)m 10-15; (2)m 
20-30; (1)m 40-50; (2)f 5-10; (1)f 15-20; (1)f 40-50. Since only 11 of 
the 13 children are noted on this census, we believe that Charles and 
Georgia are either married or have died.

4. Military Service, Rev War

While I have no documentation proving this, it has been said that James 
Biggs received some land up "north" as the result of being enlisted in 
the Revolutionary War. But he had to let it go back due to taxes. Most 
of James' life was lived in Jefferson and Hamilton Counties, Tennessee.
