*NOTE* We also found today that Benjiman Ladd Senior married Sarah F Bigham in Caldwell Co and that his name on the marriage bond is Benjiman Ladd Sr but on the certificate it shows him as Francis ladd. he appointed William h Bigham as one of his executors in his will and two other Bigham's were witnesses. We believe that these Bigham on the  will may be Sarah's children by her former marriage since there is a record  on the back of the marriage bond that states that both he and Sarah had been  previously married.
