If your Kigans Family is from Marietta Ohio then we are probably related.

My dad Robert Lewis Kiggans was born and raised in Little ole Dart

He did lots of Kiggans Family History and i am now the proud owner of those records all hard copies.

My dad died in 1995 before internet.

I have been looking for Leroy and Jane in his records but nothing so far. I have 15 binders to go through so just bare with me. Some are easier then others becuase he has Indexes on some but not on others.

He has a list here of marriages ad other stuff that took place in Washington Co oh of Kiggans he had not connected
one is your Gertrude i believe he has her listed as Gertrude Kiggins b 1-26-1904 father Roy L mother Jeannie Wells.
off to the side he has written then name John

Did Jennie Kiggins die on 5-25-1905 at the age of 33 Years 2 months and 16 days and was a teacher it list she died of consumption.

Daddy has this under "Who are these people"
Apparently he could not identify them for sure but believe she was in the lineage somewhere of John B Kiggins who married Hannah Whetstone. That is the Binder he has placed them in.
John's brother James A Kiggans who married Mary Jane Craft sometimes Kraft is my ancestor. Both sons of Thomas Kiggans and Lydia Baxley. Lydia is buried in Reas Run
Her tombstone reads Lydia B wife of Thomas Kiggins Died Nov 18, 1869 aged 70 years 2 months 25 days
I have a photo of the marker. Thomas and Lydia married on 1-6-1814 in West Liberty VA

on the 1850 Ohio Co VA census James A, JOhn B are living next door to there widowed mother Lydia. Thomas died on 5-16-1835 Near West Liberty VA

John B Kiggins b abt 1815 died 6-5-1898 of Ohio Co VA now part of WEst Virginia
and Hannah b 1818 d 1885 had the following children

Mary J b abt 1840 married a Koerner
Rebecca E/A? b 1841 d un married Dennis E Miller
Lydia 1844
Samuel R b 1846 d 10-18-1923 married Loretta Beardsley (Children Mack, Barker, Leroy, John B, Carl, Nettie)
William M 11-2-1849 d 9-29-1909 CLarksburg WV
Effie b unk died 3-29-1863 Lawrence Township
Margaret 1854
Emanuel/Manuel M b 6-4-1856 d 1-30-1940 Marietta married Reas Run 10-31-1883 Lura Rowland
Leroy 1859
Merle (JB)(I have no clue what the JB in my dads records stand for)
Grace (JB)
Last 4 born in Ohio and the rest born in Ohio Co VA now part of West Virginia
Merle and Grace show on no census with John they came from a family chart sent to my dad from one of Samuel R's descendants.

I believe your Leroy might be Samuel's son Leroy Kigans
Samuel and his descendants spelled it kigans
Samuel R Kigans died on 10-16-1923 in Washington Co OH
