Re: jackie riggs in campbell county tennessee

I'm afraid I do not have enough information to perform a search.

Census records exist to 1930, so if Jess and Lois were married after that date, they and their children cannot be found on the census record.

How old is Michael? Was Jackie older or younger? Was Jackie an adult when he died? I found this record. Could this be Michael's father?

It would help if I knew his father's approximate date of birth and his mother's approximate date of birth.

Is this Michael's father? When did his father pass away?
