More Information on Koonce &
Dry Creek Cemeteries

Thank you so much for the transcription and pictures of the (Koonce) cemetery. I have some information on two of the people buried in Koonce cemetery:
 
 

Susan WIGGINS:
Susan A. (CARTER) WIGGINS was born in GA.  She was the  1st wife of Uriah Jasper WIGGINS and they were married March 21, 1867 in Catahoula Parish, LA. 
 
 

Wife of T.M. WIGGINS:
Mary Columbia "Lumbie" (MUSGROVE) WIGGINS, daughter of John Smith and Louisia J. (SIMMONS) MUSGROVE, was the 1st wife of Thomas Marion WIGGINS.  Thomas and his 2nd wife –Margaret "Maggie" Ann (MEEKS) WIGGINS are buried in Dry Creek Cemetery near Grangerland just off FM 3083.
 
 

Thomas Marion "Tom" was the younger brother of Uriah Jasper so Susan and Mary Columbia were sisters-in-law.
 

My gg grandfather was William Grant Wiggins – buried in Dry Creek Cemetery – and he, Uriah Jasper and Thomas Marion were brothers, so I'm somewhat familiar with the Wiggins genealogy. 
 

If further info is needed please contact me.
