David, I just found your info on Ancestry.com, I hope I can still contact you thru this email. Mary Ann Bigby was my direct ggggrandmother and she married David M. Taylor. I even have a letter she wrote to him asking him to come home. They had been separated for many years. She was born Aug 9, 1800 parents were James Bigby and Catherine Foreman, married David Miller Taylor Sept 11, 1817. I have all the information on this lineage and the line thru Elizabeth Taylor (daughter of Mary Ann Bigby and David M Taylor) who married Maj. Stephen Decator Whitaker and lived in Valley Town N.C., if you would like to have it. Let me know.
See her pictures on: "james bigby & descendents pics.doc"
David was in Washington for 8 years pursuing his claim against the gov't over land he lost due to the New Echota Treaty. In the mid-1800's David was reportedly paid $28,012.92 to settle his claims and he returned to NC to find his children grown. (article 1017 Blount Co Heritage).

Mary Ann (Polly) Bigby married David Taylor. That is my line. They are my gr. gr. gr. grand parents. Their son, David Miller Taylor married Laura Elizabeth Welch. Their daughter, Mary (Mollie) Taylor married Bert Brown. Their daughter, Lillie Mae Brown married Don Erwin Smith, Their son, Floyd Erwin Smith married Minnie Delight Patterson and they were my parents. We are still looking for the death date for Campbell Harrison Taylor who was born 01 March 1838. Thanks for getting in touch. I hope I haven't confused you. Margie Farrar
