  • Notes 
    • David Eyre - rootsweb WorldConnect

      The sons of Mr. Wiggins, made enthusiastic by the patriotic zeal of their father, did their full share towards putting down the Rebellion of 1861. John enlisted in the One Hundred and Twenty-second Pennsylvania Infantry, and served during the war; Benjamin and Clayton both served nine months in Pennsylvania regiments, Samuel seven months, and David put in a substitute.
