I don't know for certain, but your Margaret probably is a
daughter of Canada Rigsby:

or, less likely, his brother Warren:

Canada was the only Rigsby in White Co in 1820, and in
1830 only he and Warren were there. Canada had a daughter
I haven't been able to identify. I have that she was born
about 1816, but I'm not sure where I got that. The census
shows her under 10 in 1820, and 5-10 in 1830, which pretty
much means she was born in 1820. She was not with Canada on
the 1840 census.

Warren had two daughters born between 1820 and 1825 I
haven't identified, but his wife was born about 1807 and so
is unlikely to be the mother of your Margaret.

One thing that makes me hesitate is that you say she was
married in MS. As far as I know none of Canada's family
left TN. The only Rigsby family I know of in Lowndes Co was
an Absolem, who I'm fairly sure was really a Rigby. White
Co and Lowndes Co are fairly far apart, and I don't know
what Margaret would be doing that far away. Are you certain
of the marriage place? Or do you know of some story that
would explain why she married there?

I also don't know of any Indian on that Rigsby branch. If
Margaret was an Indian, it could be that she just took the
Rigsby name and is not really related to the family.

Hope that is of some help.
