Sorry Maewest, I can't find her parents either, She was born 1 July 1837 Cumberland, North Carolina and died on the 12 November 1905 at Johnston, North Carolina. Some references to Clarksey as well as Clarky. Big family, perhaps one of them holds the answer. Check out the in-laws. It's been my experience that in-laws make it their business to know who the parents are of the person their children marry. Jan

Hi Jan, Thanks for your response. I have done a lot of searching in the past three or four years alone on Clarkey Biggs,the one angle I had not thought of was her childrens spouse's families. Thanks for the suggestion.Let me ask you a question,What name could Clarkey/Clarkis/Clarksey be nicknames for.These three are the ones that always come up,and I'm just wondering if they are nicknames.If anyone else reads this and has a suggestion please feel free to let me know. I do have all the other information. Mae

I wondered if it was a nickname too. Do you have her birth certificate? I have seen Clarksey once or twice but as a surname which was originally Claughsey. If you happen to go to Cardiff in Wales and mention a 'Clarksey' you would be talking about a Clark's pie. Then there are those wildflowers in America called Clarkias. We can only speculate. Jan
