Irene Wiggins who married Jared Canty was the daughter of my 3great-grandparents, Stephen and Charlotte Wiggins of Sumter Co., SC. I don't have any information about the possible son you mentioned. I do know that Jared and Irene had a daughter named Angelica Irene who married first, William S. Thames, and second ,Manning Bell. I have found a male child living with Jared on the 1840 Federal Sumter Co., SC, census who is 5-10 years old. On the 1850 census, Jared is the family below his mother-in-law, Charlotte and his daughter, Angelica, who is apparently living with her grandmother. With Jared is an 18 year old male named Henry Canty. I believe he probably is a son of Jared's. Jared is 58 years old in 1850. He is actually 3 years older than Charlotte. Irene may have been a second wife. If she is a second wife, this son and the one you are asking about could be children of a first wife. The only proof I have of their marriage is implied. Angelica inherits from Charlotte in 1867 since her mother, Irene, is deceased. I also have a newspaper abstract announcing Angelica's marriage to William C. Thames and naming Jared as her father. I am interested in the source you have for the marriage of Irene and Jared. I am very interested in a date of marriage so I can determine if Irene had any children other that Angelica. No other children of Irene's were listed as heirs.
