Re: Searching for MARIAH RIGGS
Posted by: Jane Curci (ID *****5058) Date: December 28, 2010 at 09:09:43
In Reply to: Re: Searching for MARIAH RIGGS by Joel Hogue of 4090

Notified Ancestry.com to change the name to Grover.
Sorry, I was unable to find any information about Maria's parents. The Census records did not help. One shows her parents were born in VA and the other showed they were born in Maine.

In 1850, Maria is living with a couple who may be related or may not be related. The wife could be Maria's mother; however, she was born in Ohio.
