This all from "Figg Leaves" by Eula Haskaarl & Don Matson, 1980, privately published. I posted John Figg Sr's will to the Nelson Co archives. Am trying to get the estate sale records for Joseph Essex Jr posted there also. Joseph Jr d 1836 Nelson Co, Ky. Only John Wesley Essex is a known son of Joseph & Milly Figg Essex Jr.

Nancy Ann Figg & Joseph Medcalf were also parents of Elizabeth Medcalf who m Benedict Jenkins 1839 Hardin Co. This couple is also a set of 2nd GGpts (paternal Grandmother's line). The Medcalf, Figg, Essex line is my paternal Grandfather's line. My Grandparents were 2nd cousins. A really mixed up tree & very hard to keep straight.

Have 3 lines to John Figg, Sr & his wife Elizabeth Mitchell. Can't get anything on the Mitchell & can't get back beyond John Figg Sr. Have some very early Va Figg data- ca 1698/99 Isle of Wright- but can't connect it. Don't much Mass data here to see if there were Figgs in Mass too. Va data doesn't over the time period that I am interested in so have big holes in my data.
