Hi Melba,
Well, the first thing we tried was the Census records for Campbell County.
1790....no Biggs
1800....no Biggs
1810....no Biggs
1820....no Biggs
1830....Andrew Biggs, Henry Biggs
1840....Andrew Biggs, James H Biggs
1850....no Biggs
So, we tried Census records for the state of KY
1800....Andrew Biggs...Fayette Co.
Andrew Biggs...Montgomery Co.
Henry Biggs....Cumberland Co.
Richard Biggs..Warren Co.
Stephen Biggs.. Green Co.
And no Jarvis Taylor on any of them.
Armed with that we checked an Atlas for the County in 1833 and found the family farm in a small community called Flagg Spring right next door to Flagg Spring Baptist Church. They were members there and were listed this way;
Biggs, Augusta, dism 1.Feb. 26, 1846
Coleman, excl. Jan.27, 1866
Edward, rec. e&b. Feb 17, 1867
Elisabeth, rec 1. jan. 1854
Elizabeth, #11 1864 mem. list
Elizabeth, #12 1875 mem. list
James C. rec. expr.. Jan. 1854
James H. dism. 1.Aug. 23, 1845
John M. and wife Harriett, dism.1. Nov. 22, 1845
Maria, dec'd Feb. 1865
Martha, dism.1. Apr.22, 1865
Missouri, rec.rel. from Christian Ch. Jan. 1867
Robert, moved w/o ask. for 1. Excl. Sep.23, 1865
Sanford, rec. expr. Jan.1857.#10 1864 orig. mem.list., #11 1875 mem.list

The church was constituted Dec. 7, 1833.
They have an attached Cemetery and 4 Biggs are buried there:
Andrew died 1-8-1851 aged 74 H/O Mary
Maria (Morin) b 8-18-1829, d 1-31-1865 W/O J.M.
Mary Y (Keene) died 11-17-1848 W/O Andrew
Mary Augusta died 10-16-1856, age 42 yrs, 2 mos, 3dys

We found the following marriages in Campbell County, KY:
Biggs, Allen T. & Mary Ann Hess, 20 Feb.1833, Bond, Charles Bowen
Biggs, Henry & Elizabeth Stephenson, 22 Aug. 1833, m by WH, Bond, William Stephenson
Biggs, James J. & Margaret Anne Sharpe, 15 Feb. 1835, m by WH, Bond J.C. Taylor, C by mother, Jane Sharpe & father, Tom Sharpe, w by Wm. B. Callahan
Biggs, John M.& Harriett E Corbin, 2 Jan 1836, bond by Thomas W. Kennedy, c by father John Corbin
Biggs, John M.& Maria A. Morin, 16 Dec. 1848, Bond by James K Mollyneaux
Biggs, Robert H. & Martha Ann Morin, 3 Nov. 1847, bond by Thomas L Young
Biggs, Thomas & Susannah Taylor, 11 Apr. 1816, m by CJT, Bond by Wm.Taylor
Biggs, Thomas W. & Catherine W Lauther, 16 Sep. 1835, bond by J.C.Taylor

The Ohio River was very shallow in spots in those days and a few people crossed into Clermont County, Ohio and got married there. We found some Biggs there;
Biggs, Benjamin(wid) to Emma Benkley(wid) 3 Jun, 1843 by Andrew Long, JP
Biggs, John A., 22 to Serena Plummer, 19 18 Jan. 1849 by J.B. Ellsworth, Min.
Biggs, Rachel to George Taylor 11 Mar. 1844 by S.T.Cousey MG

I will send 2 attachments to your home email address....a copy of the atlas map and a family sheet we found for John Milton Biggs and Maria A Morin.

Good luck with your further research,
Martha & Jerry
CCH&GS
