Re: Edward, Anna Loretta RIGGS family in New York

In Reply to: Re: Edward, Anna Loretta RIGGS family in New York by Steven Thomas of 4090

Do you know where she was married? Had she moved to PA from NY prior to her marriage.

I wonder if her father served in the Civil War? I wonder if he survived?

If he perished, she would be listed in her mother's household in 1870. But where did they live..NY, or PA?

I don't know if pension records would show daughter, Anna/Annie loretta. I believe she was called Annie per pension record.
