Jacob Moon was the first born son of William L. and Catherine (Lipscomb)
He was born May 10, 1834 in Ryan's Glade, Garrett County Maryland and
died November 20, 1919 at Elk Garden, Mineral County, West Virginia. He
was married to Ann Amelia Rinehart, daughter of Jacob and Anna Margaret
(Wiles) Rinehart on September 15, 1853 by Rev. William Welsh, a
Methodist circuit rider.
His second wife was Maria Kight. They were married by Rev. J.W. Hobb in
Piedmont, Mineral county, West Virginia on December 24, 1879.
It is known that he sold Bibles, books and Fruit Trees and frequently
took his grandson, Harvey Biggs with him as he visited customers. If his
prospect was reluctant to make a purchase, he would ask, "If your child
becomes ill unto death and the preacher asks for your Bible; what would
you say?". He was very successful.
He was employed by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad during the Civil War
as a brakeman, a train dispatcher, and the Yard Master at New Creek,
(Keyser) West Virginia. His employment with the railroad was terminated
when he rode a mule, borrowed from the mine, through the train station
after a bout of drinking.
He was a strong supporter of the Confederate cause and his buddy, John
Bischoff, his daughter-in-laws father, was a Colonel in the Union Army.
Despite their differences, they were life long friends.The 1870 census
shows him living in Westernport, Allegany County, Maryland and having
$200.00 in personal property. He was a coal miner at the time. He moved
to Elk Garden, West Virginia in October of 1881 and worked in the coal
mines near there. When his sons were old enough; they worked in the
mines along side their father. He was also on the Board of Education
while living there. On November 6, 1919, Jacob slipped and fell striking
his head on the boardwalk and became paralyzed the next day and never
The following column, called "Breezes from Elk Garden" appeared in the
Piedmont Herald, Piedmont, W. VA. on Friday, November 28, 1919: "On
Thursday morning, November 20, 1919, in subdued tones the message went
forth, Jacob Moon Biggs passed away. He had attained the ripe age of 85
years, 6 months, and 10 days. There was a brief funeral service at his
late home on Saturday morning by Rev. C. J. Racey. The body was taken to
Piedmont where funeral services were held in the First Methodist
Evangelical Church. Eulogies were given by Rev. Racey, Rev. F. A.
Killmon, and Rev W. C. Brian to a large congregation. The interment was
in Philo. He leaves to mourn his departure, his aged wife, and Henry,
William Biggs, Margaret Ravenscroft of Westernport, Elmer and Jacob L.
of Ridgley, Rev Charles S. of Baltimore, Mrs. Lillie Bane of Keyser. He
has twenty-four grandchildren. His flower bearers and pall bearers were
grandsons of the deceased. The pall bearers were Charles, Herbert, John,
Forrest, O. L. and Charles Biggs. Flower bearers were Ralph, Harvey, and
Richard Biggs and Norris Ravenscroft." "Uncle Jake" as he was familiarly
and affectionately called was a man of striking characteristics. He
recognized no dark side of life but always saw the sunny side. His
expressions were quaint and the charm of originality. He was the son of
William Biggs and his mother's maiden name was Lipscomb. In his early
life he lived in Piedmont and Westernport. He was the yard dispatcher
for a number of years at Piedmont and during the Civil War was yard
master at New Creek, now called Keyser. He came to Elk Garden, October
24, 1881 and was one of the first coal miners. He bought the first
ticket on the Western and Central and Pittsburgh Railroad from Piedmont
to Mineville, the route to Elk Garden. Amongst his papers was found a
well written and well preserved letter from his sister, Winnie, dated
1853. He was a member of the Board of Education at one time and took
active part in securing good teachers. He was twice married. His first
wife, Ann Amelia Rinehart, died forty-one years ago the 29th of
November. To this union were born Henry, William, Elmer, and Charles
Shannon Biggs, Mrs. Margaret Biggs Ravenscraft and Mrs. Lillie May Ellen
Biggs Bane. His second wife was Marie Sellen to whom was born Jacob
Lawson Biggs. "Uncle Jake" always took great interest in church work and
though not affiliated with the church by membership at the time, his
home was the preacher's home, for he boarded earlier preachers free,
some of whom were Rev. Marsh, Rev Pate, Rev Harris, and Rev. Long. Two
or three years ago while Rev. Landstreet was pastor of the M.E. Church
in Elk Garden, at the time of a preachers meeting, "Uncle Jake" kneeled
at the altar and consecrated his life to his Master. Rev. F.A. Killmon
and other ministers were present. "Uncle Jake" wrote his name in the
Church Register and said that it was the biggest contract he had ever
signed and the contract was faithfully kept. The widow and children of
the deceased desire to publicly thank the people of Elk Garden for their
kindness during the affliction of their husband and father. William
Kight (Maria's father) had charge of the funeral.

last name of Moon.

3ii.Ambrose Lipscomb "Amber" Biggs, born March 14, 1836 in Ryan's Glade,
Allegany now Garrett Co., MD.He married Margaret T. Harsh Bef. October
18, 1860 in probably at Preston County, Va; born August 1842; died 1930.
Notes for Ambrose Lipscomb "Amber" Biggs:
Amber and Margaret in 1860 were farming at Preston County. They owned no
real estate and had personal property valued at $100.27 During the Civil
War, Amber was not a regular soldier, but he enlisted as a Corporal in
the Union Militia at Preston County during 1864.28
In 1869 Amber received mention in a local newspaper: "Mr. Samuel
Stalnaker of Barbour County died suddenly at the house of Mr. Ambrose
Biggs, near Evansville, this County, on Tuesday evening last. Mr.
Stalnaker had been at Evansville, at Mr. W. E. Tutt' s store, and on his
way home he called in at Mr. Biggs' to consult with an Indian Doctor,
who was attending to some patients in the vicinity, and while sitting on
a chair conversing with Mrs. Walter and others, suddenly fell to the
floor and expired immediately."29
By 1870 Amber and Margaret were farming near Rowlesburg, W. Va., with
real estate worth $1,500 and personal property valued at $100. Living
with them was "Margaret Harsh, age 67" [relationship not specified;
presumably the mother of Amber's wife]. Also residing with them (or next
door) were Amber' s brother Joseph Harrison "Joe" Biggs and his second
wife Sarah.30 Shortly thereafter, Amber made what proved to be an ill
fated decision to work in the coal mines. He was killed 7 October 1873
at age 37 by an accidental fall in the Hampshire Mines at Mineral
County, W. Va.31 The inventory of his personal property shows that he owned:

4iii.Winifred Mardis "Winnie" Biggs, born April 11, 1838 in Ryan's
Glade, Allegany now Garrett Co., MD; died Bef. December 1865.She married
John William Harvey Abt. 1858; born Abt. 1829 in Hampshire County, VA
now Mineral County, WV; died July 17, 1892.
Notes for Winifred Mardis "Winnie" Biggs:
The mother of several of John William harvey's children is confusing. I
just received an email from someone who says John's first wife was
Winifred Biggs, daughter of William and Catherine (Lipscomb) Biggs. I
can confirm that John's first wife was a Winnie. I know this Winnie was
the mother of Emil W. and Lucian M. Harvey (my g-grandfather). This new
contact says that Winnie died in the 1860s.
( Michael Husman )
Winnie's parents were both deceased by the time she was age twelve. At
age fourteen, Winnie wrote the following letter on 28 March 1853 to her
brother Jacob Moon "Jake" Biggs:
"I will inform you that I have just got up out of a severe attact of the
measles. I had two back sets which went very hard with me. I thought at
one time that I could not live, but thanks be to kind Providence that he
has restored me to my health again measureably.
Our friends over the mountain are as well as common. Aunt Nancy is still
lingering along with the consumption. I do not expect that she will
survive longer than the leaves puts out in the spring. Aunt Betsy is
quite ill also but the Doctor thinks she will (with care) get over it.
Aunt Eliza is in staying with Nancy. Catherine Trones is dead. She died
of the measles. O Jake life is uncertain, but death is certain therefore
I think it is necessary to prepare to meet that dreadful monster. I am
trying to mend my ways. I have joined the church tho I have not yet
imbraced religion but I hope by the grace of God to press forward and
gain the prise. Jake I would like to know whether you every study on
future things as you should. There is surely something for all of us to do.
Wright to me soon and let me know how you and all the rest of our
Friends are comeing on and whether you are ever going to come in to see
me or not. You have got both of the boys out there now. I reckon you
will not think it worth your while to come in to see me. You had better
come and see your Elizy dear or it may be some of the other boys will
take her off. Martha Saevey ( Martha Harvey- CWH ) was to have been
married on easter Sunday to Silas Walter. I have not herd yet whether it
came off or not. Tell Ambrose I think he might have come out to see me
before he went away. I was over to see my uncles about a week when he
went away and so I missed him. I must conclude and bring my short
epistle to a close by subscribing myself your affectionate sister,
Give my love to all inquiring friends and reserve a portion for
yourself. Wright soon and direct your letter to Summitsville, Md."
The aunts mentioned in Winnie's letter (Nancy, Betsy and Eliza) were
daughters of Joseph Biggs and Frances "Fannie" Smith Hebb, and thus
sisters of Winnie's late father William L. Biggs. Nancy and Eliza
resided with their widowed mother Fannie in 1850, along with Winnie's
brothers Ambrose and Joseph (the letter's "both of the boys"). Winnie's
brother Jake in 1850 was still living with father William L. Biggs and
his second family. Winnie that year was residing at the farm household
of neighbor Henry Thompson. "Aunt Eliza" later married (1861) to
Winnie's first cousin, William David "Bill" Lipscomb of Tucker County,
(W.) Va. The identity of "your Elizy dear" is unknown: six months later,
Jake was married to Annamelia "Amelia" Rinehart.
Winnie married JOHN WILLIAM HARVEY about 1858, possibly at Preston
County, Va. He was born 1828/29 in Virginia, son of Samuel Harvey and
Sarah Shillingburg.John' s great grandfather William Harvey Jr. (1744
after 1827)48 was likely the "Bill Harvey" noted in the Jacob Moon Biggs
family bible: "Joseph Biggs [Winnie's paternal grandfather] owned the
old Bill Harvey place, also owned 1 cow and 40 head of horses." Winnie's
first cousins, Roxalana Lipscomb (1832 1893) and Joshua Bond Lipscomb
(1836 1910) also married into the Harvey family. Roxalana and Joshua
were children of Winnie's maternal uncle Fielding Lipscomb and first
wife Jane Bond. Roxalana married 1855 to Henry Lower (1831 1900), a
second cousin of John William Harvey, while Joshua Bond Lipscomb married
1861 to Jane Harvey (1840 1930), who was John William Harvey's first cousin.
In 1860 John and Winnie resided at Allegany County, Md., where John was
employed as a merchant. Winnie gave birth to her second son in November
1864. She died some time before December 1865, when John re married.
Exactly how Winnie chanced to meet "that dreadful monster" at such a
young age is not known.
John next was married 12 December 1865 to Rhoda McCrobie, daughter of
William and Sarah McCrobie. She was born about 1846 and died before 24
April 1873, when John married Sarah Elizabeth Davis, who was age 24.
John and last wife Sarah resided 1880 at Altamont, in Garrett County,
Md. Reportedly, John died in 1892.

5iv.Joseph Harrison "Joe" Biggs, born May 17, 1840 in Ryan's Glade,
Allegany now Garrett Co., MD; died Bef. June 09, 1873 in Preston Co.,
VA.He married (1) Salome Jane Weimer June 21, 1861 in Preston Co., WV;
born April 14, 1840; died June 20, 1864.He married (2) Sarah Ann
Henderson January 25, 1870 in Allegany Co., MD; born 1853 in Evansville,
Preston Co., VA now WV; died Bef. February 16, 1888.
Notes for Joseph Harrison "Joe" Biggs:
In 1860 Joe was living in a hotel at Rowlesburg, in Preston County, Va.,
where he worked as a "wood chopper." He married (1) SALOME JANE WEIMER
21 June 1861, probably in Preston County, Va. Her parentage is unknown.
She was born 14 April 1840 and died 20 June 1864, most likely from
complications of childbirth.
An early history of Preston County relates that when the crisis of
Rebellion came, Preston responded promptly to the call of the President
of the United States for troops. Her hardy sons, inured to hard labor,
endured the fatigues of the march and the privations of camp life. The
Sixth West Virginia was organized in August 1861, General Rosenkranz
commanding ... It was mustered into the service for the special duty of
guarding the B. & O Railroad. Companies F and O were Preston men ..."
Listed on the roster of Company F was "Corporal Joseph Biggs." This was
surely Joseph Harrison Biggs, although there is no military pension
record for him at the National Archives (his early death likely
precluded the filing of a pension application. Several of the Privates
listed in Company F were either Joe' s cousins or men who married Joe's
kin. Among them were: Elisha Goff, who married Lucinda "Lucy" Lipscomb;
David Howard Lipscomb and his future son in law John Carrico Hebb;
Daniel Lipscomb; Sylvester Lipscomb; and Thornton F. Hebb, who married
Mary Ann Lipscomb.
Joe married (2) SARAH ANN HENDERSON 25 January 1870 at Allegany County,
Md.60 She was born about 1853 at Evansville, in Preston County, Va.,
daughter of William and Mary Henderson.61 Joe and Sarah were farming
1870 at Reno District in Preston County, with real estate valued at
$1,100 and personal property worth $50. Living with them was Sarah's
mother Mary Henderson. According to the Jacob Moon Biggs family bible,
"Joe Biggs died on his farm near Newburg [in Preston County]." Joe died
shortly before 9 June 1873, when his estate was inventoried. Joe was
barely 33 years old at the time of his death (cause unknown), and he was
followed to the grave just a few months later by his brother Amber
(killed at age 37 by a fall in the coal mines). Joe's burial place is
unknown. His estate (excluding land and dwelling house) was inventoried

Joe's widow Sarah remarried 8 April 1875 at Preston County. Her second
husband was William B. Fauley, son of Jacob Fauley and Elizabeth McGoba.
He was born 28 August 1850 at Loudoun County, Va. and died 30 June 1924
at Grafton, in Taylor County, W. Va. Sarah and William moved to Barbour
County, W. Va. and resided 1880 at Cove District. Fauley was working
there as a shoemaker. Living with him, in addition to wife Sarah, were
their daughter Josephine Fauley ("age 4"), his "stepdaughter Juretta
Biggs, age 9," and "Mary Henderson, mother in law, age 50, with liver
ailment." Apparently Sarah died some time before 16 February 1888, when
Fauley married (2) Elizabeth Granneman (born January 1864) at Grafton,
Taylor County, W. Va. Sarah's burial place is unknown.
