I have a tiny bit of information on Caledonia.

She was born in December of 1859 and died 1929-07-03 in
Dekalb Co TN. She married Andrew P Rigsby on 1878-07-14.
They had 7 children that I know of: Osa, Haskel, Henry B,
Wade W, Mattie B, Harrison, and Era or Eva M.

Her mother's name was Mary, but I don't know her father's
name. Caladonia appears on the 1860 census in Dekalb Co on
page 194, Sligo Post Office:

Mary Dildine 37 TN
George W 17 TN
Rachel 13 TN
Aaron 12 TN
Caladonia 1 TN

That 11-year gap looks suspicious to me.

I have not searched thoroughly, but a cursory glance at the
1850 census shows no Dildines in Dekalb Co TN.

I have more on Andrew Rigsby if you're interested.
