find a grave has
Lexington City Co VA
Rutherford H Figgat 1818-1888
Sarah Jane his wife
James Spencer Figgat CSA 1841-1864

Spencer married Margaret .

They had the following children:

+       2       F       i.       Elizabeth Figgat was born in Jul 1819. She died on 24 Apr 1875.


Second Generation

       2.       Elizabeth Figgat (Spencer) was born in Jul 1819 in res, Riverhead, Augusta, Va. She died on 24 Apr 1875 in Augusta Co, WV.

"Virginia Deaths and Burials, 18531912." Index. FamilySearch,

Elizabeth Figgat Birth: ABT 1820 Death: 24 Apr 1875 (?) in Augusta Co., Va shown as dau of Spencer
Figgett and Margt. Figgett.

Marriage 6 Jan 1844 Rockbridge Co., Va
Note: An Elizabeth Hess died on 4/24/1875 aged 55y-2mo. If Eliz Hess was 39 in 1860 that would put
her age correctly at 49 in 1870 & 54+in 1875

There is a William Figgat Hess (1910-1914) bur at Mt. Carmel-may be Johns or William G.'s.
It helps coroborate the Hess-Figgat marriage as correct

Elizabeth married William Eugene Hess Sr son of William Hess and Margaret on 6 Jan 1844 in Rockbridge Co, VA. William was born in 1820 in res, Riverhead, Augusta, Va. He died on 16 Jul 1883 in Augusta Co, Va.
