    Notes 
    • bMartha Biggs/b, daughter of Jemima Cherry and James Biggs, was born 25 April 1783 in Martin Co NC. She married widower John Williams in 1799 or early 1800, probably in Martin Co. He was born in Bertie Co between 1756 and 1774, and left a Martin Co will dated 10 January 1805; he died soon afterwards. Since his eldest child from his first marriage was born in 1788, John (called John Williams Senr in the 1800 Martin Co census), John was probably born in the early- to mid-1760s. After John died, Martha then married Joshua W Hassell about 1807. She and Joshua lived in Martin Co until his death. Martha died on 12 April 1860 at Williamston; she left a will dated 23 March 1857, and was apparently a widow at the time. Joshua was living in Martin Co in December 1821 when he witnessed the Francis Barroud will. In 1850 Martha was living with her son Cushing in Williamston, and next door to Asa Biggs. From her two marriages Martha had five known children
