Joseph Sigman b: abt 1801 and Wife Nellie (Unknown) b: abt 1803
Posted by: Susan Parkhurst (ID *****7224) Date: September 23, 2004 at 15:01:22

Earliest known information is from 1850 Federal Census

Laurel Township, Hocking Co., Ohio
Joseph Sigman age 49, Farmer b: Pennsylvania
Nelly (Nellie)Sigman age 47 b: Ohio
Andrew Sigman, age 16, Laborer b: Ohio
Hazekiah Sigman, age 13 b: Ohio
James Sigman, age 11 b: Ohio
Joseph Sigman, age 9 b: Ohio
Thomas sigman, age 6 b: Ohio
Pheby Sigman, age 4, b: Ohio
Susan Sigman, age 2, b: Ohio

In the 1860 Census I find a Benjamin age 27 with the family born in Ohio and no Andrew. Andrew and Benjamin may be one in same?

This family is living near Amos Nihizer and Rachel (Sigman) his wife. With their daughter Emily. I believe that I am descended from the Nihizer's son Joseph. Possibly William Joseph.

I have traced a cousin of my great grandfather Lester Nihiser who was living with his cousin Joseph Sigman possibly the son of Benjamin Sigman and Mary Ann Diltshaver.

Trying to confirm connection.

Any help appreciated.
