Hi Ken,
Thank you so much for answering!!
I made a big mistake with Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Chambers death date. I must have looked at the wrong date when I checked, sorry!!
Anway, I know for certain Mary Chambers died 29.Apr.1896 in Marion, Crittenden co. KY. There is a big write-up about her death. She was pregnant at the time & the doc. who assisted her in her delivery at home was charged with her murder. The doc. died before he was brought to full trial. It is a very interesting story, if you ever care to read it let me know & I will send it.
Henry, Benjamin {yes,it is Benjamin}, Blaine & Ray,{Ray is my husbands father}. The baby that died along with Mary in 1896 couldn't have been full term for Ray was born 15.Sept.1895 & so it was only about 7 months between the two.
What is also very interesting is that a Charlie Vickery, {yes, it most likely is Vickery}and the age is right to be the same Charlie Vikery,is shown as step-son of Louis P. Rigsby. Charlie Vickery was married to Nellie Elizabeth Woods who was my husband Robert C. Rigsby's maternal grandaunt!! Not sure of the first names of the other sson & sdau.
I see it doesn't give Louis P. Rigsby's wife Mary H. maiden name. That is what's nice in Scandanavian countries, they give their maiden names.
I have always had the feeling he wasn't born in Chattanooga, but I see the census shows he was born in TN.
May I ask what do the TN/TN/TN stand for after the names. I know the first is the state they were born in, what do the other 2 stand for? Our Louis P. Rigsby is buried in Hogan cemetery, Shawneetown, Ill.
I also see under the 4 boys: Henry, Blaine,Ben, Ray in the 1910 census it has IL after their names and in 1900 census it has KY under all 4 with KY/TN/TN next to Henry's.
I have alot of info. for the 4 sons and their families. Many still live in Shawneetown, Ill. area.
thanks so much!! You gave me a lot to think about.
