I have posted this on the Marshall County forum but since it appears that my grandmother moved to (or back to) Davidson County before the 1930 census thought I'd post this here on the chance that someone might know something.

I am trying to do my family tree on both of my paternal grandparents but at this point do not know where to go next. If anyone can provide me with any info on these folks it would be wonderful!

I am looking for any information on my paternal grandmother, Mabel Griffin Biggers, paternal grandfather, Maynard S. Biggers or my dad's brother, Jimmie Biggers. I know my dad's brother was living somewhere aound Nashville in 1996, with his adoped son, but I believe he has sinced died.

My grandmother is listed on the "Nashville City" Census as 28 years of age with her 2 sons, Jimmie Biggers, who was 9 year old, and (it says) W R Biggers (actually W L who happened to be called "Doug" all his life) who was 8 years old. My dad was born in Chapel Hill, TN. My grandfather changed his name from Biggers to Thompson and at some point before 1930 he left and went to California.

I know there are/were a lot of Biggers in TN but don't know which "family" is the right one at this point. Or Griffin for that matter. Haven't found much on Ancestry or Family Search yet but I'm just learning.
