I suspect Cynthia is Joseph's daughter, but I have no proof. Joseph was born in Tennessee, according to the 1850 Clark Co IN census, and Cynthia's father was born in Tennessee, according to the 1880 and 1900 censuses. In 1840 Thomas Adams (possibly father of Thomas who m Cynthia) lived fairly close to the families of Meek, Spencer, Haney and House, who married Biggses who I'm reasonably certain were children of Joseph Biggs. Joseph's family is the only Biggs family that shows up in Jennings Co censuses before 1850, so if you have any indication that Cynthia was born in Jennings Co then that would be a plus to suggest she was Joseph's daughter.

Land records in Jennings Co might show a transaction between Joseph Biggs and Thomas/Cynthia before Joseph left for Clark Co IN.

Cynthia's stone is online at Findagrave.com. Also her obit is posted there. Her online death record at Ancestry.com does not show her parents' names or her county of birth. You might want to obtain her death certificate from the state of Oregon to see whether or not that info is actually on it.

I'm not related to this Biggs family and have no further information on these people.
