Thanks for the dates for Thomas Lewis. Maybe that really is
an "L" on the census instead of a "D". The writing can be a
challenge sometimes. Thanks for the wedding date and
Elizabeth's last name, too. I'll add that to my notes.
Thanks also for the specifics on Harriet Simms. Donna will
be glad to see that.
>I show Nancy as b. 1868 and George b. 1871,
On the 1860 census Thomas has a son George E age 5. George
is not with him in 1870, though. Perhaps he died young.
Thomas doesn't have a son George in 1880 either.
I'm unsure about his daughter Nancy. On the 1870 census
there are two Nancys listed with Thomas:
1870 census Wayne Co WV p98/9:
Thomas Rigsby 52 NC
Mary J 25 VA
Nancy A 3 WV
Archibald 24 VA
John 21 VA
Thomas 18 VA
Albert 13 VA
Nancy J 8 VA
I had wondered why Thomas' wife's age was wrong. Now that I
know he married again, it makes more sense. She was quite a
bit younger than him, huh? I imagine the older children
found that strange. What still doesn't add up is the two
Nancys. Nancy J looks like she fits in with Thomas'
children from his first wife. Could it be that Mary Jane
Spence was married earlier, and Nancy A is her daughter?
