I hope this is helpful.

Sorry I did not get back to you sooner. This Rigg gathering is of the descendants of Mahlon and Mary [Cox] Rigg of Palmer Twp, Putnam Co. Mahlon was the son of
>>John & Mary Anna [Fissell?] Rigg, of Harrison and Crawford counties, OH, but both born in PA. It is possible that John and Mary Anna had 12 children. I only have some information on six of them. All but one of the six stay connected to Putnam Co., OH. Jonas died at his son Phillip's in DeKalb Co, IN.
>>John was the son of Ahijah and Hannah [Pennell] Rigg of Washington Co, PA.
Ahijah was the 10th child of Clement Rigg, who had 17 children and probably three wives. Clement died [1808] in Pike Run Twp, Wash. Co , PA. Clement was the first child of Robert and Elizabeth [Richison] Rigg of Chester Co, PA.
Other Ohio areas known to have some Rigg links are: Warren Co, home of Eleazer Rigg, also a son of Clement; two of Clement's daughters, Pricilla and Miriam were born in what is now Columbiana Co; Abigail, another of his daughters is known to have died in Stark Co. Clement's son, Jesse was born in 1778 in Jefferson Co., OH.

Most of this info comes from the book : Who's Where in the John Rigg Family by Steven M. Briggs of AZ.

I don't know if this has been of much help to you. The index of this book does not have a listing for Addie Rigg or any Henderson, but the book does not go into the details of the family lines of the siblings of the above. It is possible one of them is your link. I wish you the best of luck in your search...
