Hmm... So it's certain they were married in Lowndes Co. I'm
still hung up on her being so far from home. Are you sure
she was born in White Co TN? I also wonder about the Indian
story. I think we should consider the possibility that she
just took the Rigsby name.

Have you seen this site?

It also says Margaret was a Cherokee.

I had mentioned that there was an Absolem Rigsby or Rigby
in Lowndes Co, but as I look more closely I see he's too
young to be Margaret's father. Instead, he might be her
brother. His father had three daughters under 10 on the
1820 census, and they were probably under 5. The problem is
that Absolem's father was in SC and stayed there. Margaret
would have had to move to MS with her brother, which
doesn't sound too likely.

Interesting that your Margaret moved to Hot Spring Co.
Canada's brother John also moved there. John is old enough
to be Margaret's father, but he wasn't married until 1822,
and as far as I know that was his first marriage.

I have more info on Canada and his descendants on my web
site [link in previous message]. He was a son of Thomas
c1760 of Mecklenburg Co NC. Thomas' is one of the bigger
branches of the Rigsbys. I know I have more information
about Canada in my unorganized notes, too. Right now I'm in
the process of going through them all, which should take
quite a while.
