CATHERINE (Katy) FOREMAN BIGBY was the wife of Jim Bigby and made the hard journey West. Her father, Anthony Foreman, was a Scotsman here in the service of the British during the Revolutionary War. He became disgruntled with the war, deserted the British ranks and decided to settle down in America with an Indian lass named Susie Bark, a full-blood Cherokee. Katy was born to this union. Katy's mother was a daughter of The Bark. Katy Bigby was an Aunt of Rev. Jesse Bushyhead by her sister Nannie. She was half-sister to Rev. Stephen Foreman. She was my great(4X) grandmother.
