SIGLER, WILLIAM N. (1798–?). William N. Sigler, early Texas settler and public official, was born in North Carolina in 1798. He immigrated to Texas and applied for land at Bevil in the department of Nacogdoches on November 19, 1834. The census of 1835 listed him as a farmer and a married man. He represented San Augustine in the Consultation and in the General Council of 1835. In 1837 or 1838 he was a justice of the peace in San Augustine. In 1850 Sigler owned real property valued at $4,000 and ten slaves. At that time his household included his wife, Julie Ann, and two children, a twenty-year-old son and a sixteen-year-old daughter, both born in Alabama.
