Nancy Cody Dyer Wigginton was my maternal great great grandmother when married to George B. Dyer in Itawamba Co. MS. As 1st Lt. Dyer, he was killed Feb. 15, 1862 at Ft. Donelson, TN Civil War battle. The widow Dyer married their neighbor, William Harvey Wigginton on Aug. 4, 1864. This couple had 5 children; sometime in the mid 1880's, the Wigginton's along with some of their relatives and neighbors left Itawamba County and settled in the Winfield, TX area. Other surnames to be found around them were Cody's and Wrights. Both Nancy and Harvey are buried in Gray Rock Cemetery in nearby Titus County. Can anyone shed any light on any descendants that might still be in the area? I can be contacted directly at in not so far away Tarrant County. Thanks!
