BIGGS family in Vegas
Posted by: Ruth Estelle-Symons (ID *****5335) Date: December 16, 2002 at 19:40:55

Sure need help!! Searching for biological family.
The BIGGS family from somewhere in Tennessee. I believe they ended up in Vegas looking for work on Boulder Dam. Bessie BIGGS (my grandmother) d. 1963-4 Worked for Clark County school district (5th St. Grammar School) in the 40's.
Thurman Sylvanus BIGGS (my father) died approx 1941 to '43
Other names would be:
Owen Biggs, Wesley Biggs, Freida & Felix Biggs, kids of Owen. Owen was married to 'Gretchen' who died in 1974. Thurman Sylvanus BIGGS was married for a short time to my bio mother "Lena Hazel HARMAN).
At one time (40's) Bessie lived at the "Helldorado Village" and raised rabbits there. Bessie also could have been the common-law wife of George Taylor who died in early 40's. She may have used the name "Taylor".
Tried finding an obit for Bessie in the Sun & RJ papers but really don't know much about doing that sort of thing online.
Any help would sure be appreciated!!
Thanks
Ruth
