Re: James Bigby Sr. born 1778

You are the first to identify the father of James Bigby, Sr. born 9/6/1778 as James Bigby. It seems well established on this web site that the mother of James Bigby, Sr was Elizabeth Hicks, but the father has been a matter of speculation. I'm quite a novice at this geneological search business and am curious about the roadblock(s) to a deeper ancestoral search. Do we know that Elizabeth Hicks is the mother of James Bigby, Sr. because it is on some sort of birth certificate or register? If so, what does that documentation say about the father? I suspect that a great number of people have wrestled with this issue of identifying the father of James Bigby, Sr. and I wonder if they have determined that any further search is futile?
