Text: Martha married David Biggs by 1828. She makes a claim in 1828 and she and her children are listed on the Old Settler Cherokee Rolls of 1851 and 1896. Family oral history places her as a daughter of Ignatius Chisholm(I002) and Martha Rogers; however, I have not seen proof, though one source says that Narcissa Owens mentions Martha. If so, that would help establish this considerably since Narcissa would certainly have known her own cousin.
