1885 — Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana
Charles A. Wiggers' parents were Jacob and Magdalena Hahn Wieggers. It was during Charles lifetime that the spelling of the last name was changed from Wieggers to Wiggers. The couple emigrated from Germany pre-1861 as Charles was born in the United States. We do not know much about his parents other that when Jacob Wieggers passed away, he left his son Charles two mules to help him on his farm.
