Howdy Patrick

I believe that would be Isaac J Rigsby born 1895 NC to John
Vernon Rigsby born 1848-02-08 Orange Co NC died 1912-07-22
+ Mary Leigh born about 1860 NC. He is the only Isaac I
know of in Durham Co in that time period.

John's parents were Jesse O II Rigsbee born 1808-06-22 died
1881-02-01 Durham NC + Mary Vickers born 1810-01-09 died

Jesse's parents were Jesse O Rigsby born 1764 died 1827 +
Elizabeth Pickett born about 1780 Orange Co NC died

I haven't found the older Jesse's parents, but he is
probably from one of the NC Rigsby families. There were
several Jesses there in the mid-1700s, and this one is no
doubt related to them somehow.

I don't have much information on the Rigsbys past 1900 or
so, so I'm afraid I can't help you with Isaac's living
relatives. I do know he had a brother Albert born about
1878, and sisters Arlina, Elizabeth, and another whose name
I haven't found.

Hope that is of help.
