From 1882 History of Randolph County.
Page 55: Petit Jurors. "William Diggs (then called old Billy Diggs) was father of Armsbee Diggs, also a juryman. William Diggs has been dead a long time. There is now a William Diggs, a very old man - not, however, that William Diggs, but his son-who is nearly ninety years old."

On page #85 and #347 are articles concerning William Diggs, Jr., born in Anson County, NC on December 17, 1793 or 1794, and having come to Randolph County with Paul W.Way, Henry H. Way, William Way, and Robert Way in 1816. This Wm. Diggs married Charlotte Way, daughter of Henry Way in 1816. Lots of info about all their families!

On page #311 is a lengthy article about Armsbee Diggs, born 1795 in Anson Co., NC. Married Mary Way about 1816. Came to Randolph County in February, 1817. Article lists 11 childrens names, one of which is William. Could this be your William? Do you know the names of the parents of Lucinda Hiatt?

Hope this helps!
