This is a picture of Asa Biggs, former US Senator born in Williamston, Martin County, in 1811. I’ve added a Biographical Profiles page and started with some information about him. Since Asa was quite famous, there is a lot of inforamtion about him already online.
One item of note for anyone researching the family, the NC State Archives has some of the family bible records. Accessioned to the collection in 2005, they described it as such:
Biggs. Some Bible and Cemetery Records of the Asa Biggs Family: Booklet 1. Bible Records, by Edwin R. MacKethan, III. Bible records of the Joseph and Chloe Daniel Biggs family, 1766-2001, with particular reference to the family of Senator Asa Biggs [Martin County]; 1 spiral-bound book.
