Four of us "Rigney" 2nd cousins just recently found each other via message boards and A.Waymon Rigney is our common great-grandfather. Griffith is possibly Waymon's father or grandfather - it's complicated. Griffith apparently
fathered a child w/Nancy Jennings (that would be Sarah)while married to Lavina. We also believed he fathered additional children w/Betsy Sheldon - again while married to Lavina.

We have never found Virginia Angeletta "Letta" RIGNEY living w/Griffith but who knows how many kids he really had or who raised them. Could Gwinn really be Guinn? There were Guinn families in the neighorhood I believe.

Hope to hear from you - maybe you are another cousin.
