I finally found who my ggrandmother Serena Carter Rigsby belonged to. Her parents were Samuel Carter & Adaline McCormick (both born in TN). Her mother Adaline had a sister named Serena also. She is on the 1870 Todd CO KY census-looks like it is spelled Sheney, age 7. Serena married Samuel Aurelius on 2-19-1880, Logan CO KY. Marriage bond is signed by Samuel Aurelius and Samuel Carter X(his mark). witnesses present were Samuel Carter & Oliver McCormick. On 1-15-1883 she married Lonney Rigsby. Marriage Register says Mrs. Sreney Reelas is our daughter and who is a widow and living with us and yet under age-she has our consent to intermarry with Lonney Rigsby. signed Samuel Carter X (his mark) and Adaline Carter X (her mark). I originally was told that my Serena's father was Cilan Carter of Allen CO KY, but that was wrong. They probably thought that because Alonzo Rigsby was born in Allen CO.
Serena's daughter Nannie Rigsby married Alonzo Allen & they
were parents of my father. Hope to clear this up to anyone I may have told wrong. I'd be happy to send copies of marriage records to anyone who might want them.
