===========================================================
1790
[Records for Virginia are missing]


------------------------------
Maryland

--
[There are a bunch of Rigby families in Talbot Co.]

--
Worcester Co

p125
[R19] Thomas Rigby 1 M 16+, 2 F

[Rigsby in 1800, but I'm not positive he should be.]

------------------------------
North Carolina

--
Beaufort Co

NC p452
Langley Risbey 1 M 16+, 1 F
Richard Risbey 1 M 16+
Thomas Risbey 1 M 16+, 1 F
Thomas Risbey 1 M 16+, 2 F

[I'm pretty sure these aren't Rigsbys. There really was a
Risbey family.]

--
Caswell Co

[R07] James Rigsby 1 M 16+, 2 M 0-15, 2 F
[R08] John Rigsby 1 M 16+, 4 F

[I'm not sure where I got this. There wasn't a census for
Caswell Co in 1790.]
[James moves to Anson Co NC, I think.]
[John vanishes, unless he is R38 who appears in Jefferson
Co KY 1820.]

--
Chatham Co

p88
[R06] Luke Rigsbey 1 M 16+, 4 M 0-15, 2 F
[Luke 23, John 6, x, x, x, Elizabeth 20, x]

James Rigbey 2 M 16+, 1 M 0-15, 2 F, 2 slaves

[James doesn't appear after this. I think he was a Rigby.]

--
Duplin Co

p32
William Rigsby 2 M 16+, 3 M 0-15, 3 F, 2 other free persons

[really Rigby]
[note: this may be the ancestor of some GA Rigsby lines]

p48
[R10] John Rigsby 1 M 16+, 1 M 0-15, 2 F

[He vanishes, unless he is R38 who appears in Jefferson
Co KY 1820.]
[He might actually be a Rigby.]

--
Mecklenburg Co

p371
[R14] Thomas Rigsby 1 M 16+, 3 M 0-15, 3 F
[Thomas 30, Canada 2, James, Henry, wife, x, x]

[moves to Buncombe Co NC]
[either James or Henry does not appear with him in 1800]
[probably it's James who vanishes, as he seems to have
moved to TN]

--
Orange Co

p97 [St Mary's district]
[R11] William Rigsbee
[R12] Jesse Rigsby

[no other information was given]

[I don't see William after this, but his widow is in Troup
Co GA in 1840.]

--
Randolph Co

p222
John Rigbey 1 M 16+, 1 F

[Randolph Co is next to Chatham Co. Probably this John is
related to the James there.]

--
Wake Co

p103

[James, Daniel 6, John 3, Wright <1, Susanna, x]

[R05 James is really Rigsby. He dies before 1800.]
[I'm pretty sure Frederick, Archibald, and R02 James were
brothers, and that John and R05 James were brothers.]

Virginia

--
1789 tax list Goochland Co VA

[R13] William Rigsby
[This is William + Susannah Adams]


===========================================================
1800
[Records for Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia are
missing.]


------------------------------
Georgia

A NC mail-list message says that Warren Co GA has:

[R11] William Rigsby with 4 daughters
[William 43; wife Mary]

[I don't see him in 1810 or 1820, but his widow is in
Troup Co GA in 1840, and his children are there in 1830.]
[This may be William Rigby who was in Duplin Co NC in 1790]

1 F 10-16, 2 F 16-26, 1 F 45+

[John is 16. Obviously the younger males are not his
children. I don't know who the older woman is. Possibly he
is living with his future wife's family.]

the county changed around them.]
