I have reason to believe that James H. Watson lived in DeKalb Countybefore he enlisted at Murfreesboro on February 22, 1863. He servedin the 5th Calvary Co. I. He was born in Cabarrus County, N.C. Infiling his pension papers, he lists DeKalb County. I have no ideawhen he may have came to DeKalb County. He was 27 when he listed, soI assume he was born in 1836. I do not know who he married or when. If there is anything you can find, I would greatly appreciate it, orany suggestions you have on where to go from this point. Thank youfor your help.

Andrew MCDOWEL/MCDOLE is listed in the 1820 & 1830 census as a resident of White County, then in the 1839 tax list as living in District 8 in DeKalb County. He's still there in 1840. From overlapping census records I calculate his birth as being between 1800 and 1804. Does anyone know where he went before the 1850 census? That one could provide me with valuable information. He lives near Jane McDole and John McDole in the 1840 census. He's not very far from Curtis and Luke MCDOWEL in 1840, but I have never seen anyone connect the two families together. Andrew's name is spelled "MCDOLE" on more than one occasion. Any ideas??

I am interested in any information on Biggs who lived in Dekalb Co. My g-grandmother was Martha Biggs(born 1856) who married James Melton in Dekalb Co. in 1883. I believe her sister was Lucy Biggs who married Robert Raymon (buried in the old Cantrell cemetary). There were also a David Biggs who married Mary Anderson in 1891 and James Biggs who married Martha Young in 1895. I know there were Biggs families in Dekalb Co. as late as the 1930's, probably later because my fathers family visited with them. I am trying to figure out who Martha Biggs family was.
