I am looking for info. on William Rigsby/Rigby ( born c. 1755-1760) in NC. William
marries Mary (born 1774,last name unknown). By 1800 they and 4 daughters are in
Warren County Georgia. In all William and Mary have 7 children. William dies in
Troup County Ga. between June 1834 and Nov 1835. Mary Rigsby dies in Troup Co.
GA. between 1850 & 1860. Family lore has William fighting with the British. My
Fathers line is descended from William and Marys son Allen Rigsby that marries
Milleas Patterson in Troup Co. GA. on 10 Nov 1829.

And I am descended from John Bell Post, born 1801, brother to Martin
and William. John Bell Post was the fifth child and fourth son. He
married Nancy Rigsby, in Georgia. He died in Troy, Pike county,
Alabama, in September 1892.

John William Rigsby, my 3rd
great-grandfather. He was born Oct 15, 1825 in Jones County, Georgia, to
Gavin and Martha Rigsby. His parents died before he was six years old. I
have alot of information about John William Rigsby, but not much about
his parents. I would like to know how and when they died.

[I have this John b c1832 in Troup Co GA, s/o William Rigsby + Mary Patterson.]

at Wesley Chapel Cemetary in Butler County AL and died in 1943.



He was born 1882, and died 1943.

Rigsby maillist


Am trying to verify that Eli Rigsby and wife Nancy, my ggrandparents, are
the same persons as Eli Rigby who married Nancy Grizzle, Feb 19, 1838, in
Troup County GA. Also the will of William Rigbey, Troup County GA, dated
Jun 2, 1834 lists as a legatee a son named Eli. I believe both of these are
the same person as my ggrandfather, just a matter of different spellings.
Can anyone give me definite proof?

My ggrandparents first appear on the 1860 Trinity County TX Census with the
following info: Eli, age 49, b. NC; Nancy, age 40, b. GA, with 8 children,
3 sons and 5 daughters ranging in age from 1 to 19 all listed as being born
in Alabama. Haven't been able to find them on 1840 or 1850 Census of any

This same couple appear on the 1870 Houston County TX Census with the
following info: Eli, age 64, b. GA; Nancy age 50, b. GA with 4 daughters
ranging in age from 6-17 years.

The 1880 Trinity County TX Census lists Nancy age 64 as a widow with 3
daughters from age 16 to 25.

Rigsby maillist (response to above)

If the parents of your Nancy Grizzle/Griswold are Stephen
Grizzle/ Griswold b. c1785 Halifax Co., NC. married Elizabeth Harrison
on 27 May 1810 in Warren Co. GA. , and whose sister Martha Grizzle m. Alfred
Rigby/Rigsby , and if your Eli Rigby was first married to Martha Hicks
on 14 Oct. 1832 in Troup Co. Ga. then yes, they are the same people.

My father descends from William RIGBY ( whose will you refer
to ) through his son Allen Rigsby m. Milleas Patterson 10 Nov. 1829 Troup
Ga. William Rigby is his 3rd ggrandfather.

One note , Eli Rigby/Rigsby is born in Ga.

Grizzle, Alford/Alfred Rigsby and Martha Grizle and Noah

16 Nov 1835. Eli Rigby m Nancy Grizzle 19 Feb 1838.Noah Rigby m
Frances Grizzle 9 Jan 1839.It was a second marriage for Eli.
My fathers line descends from Allen Rigsby, brother of the above
