My Sarah Rigsby born NC 1811, married Henderson Chappell, Dec 2, 1828, Hickman County Tenn. Married in house of James Rigsby, father or brother ?, Robert Chappell as witness. James Rigsby in 1860 Hickman County Census listed as Woodchopper,63 born NC., wife Cary 72, born NC, daughter Bennett 39.
Sarah named her children:
John H born Sept 30, 1830
William A born Jan 4, 1835
Karah Louise born Sept 26 1836
Mary Jane born Aug 19, 1838
Beni Catherine born April 16, 1840
Amanda Elizabeth born Sept 30, 1843
Thomas Henry born Aug 24, 1844
MuHulda Frances born April 16, 1847 last child as Henderson Chappell mustered as Private 3rd Tn at Nashville, Sept 30, 1847.
He died in Mexico June 1848
All this info from Widow Penison Appl. of Sarah Chappell, Mexican War.
After Henderson's death Sarah was in Obion, Weakley and Henry Counties Tenn. Later Delta County Tx and back to Obion Tn where she died.
Some of these children were in Delta County Texas 1880s
Maybe with names we can solve another puzzle of early Rigsbys
