Hi Dan

Unfortunately, I think you now know everything I do about
that family. I have not put a lot of effort into them
because I decided they were Rigby. I do have some
information on Enoch, who is probably an uncle of your

There were a couple of black Rigsby families in Dallas/
Monroe/Wilcox after 1870, but they were the only other
Rigby or Rigsby in the area.

>Do you know anything about the descendants of this Charles RIGBY/RIGSBY from SC?

Charles was born probably around 1776. He had two sons that
I know of, William and Absolem. He lived in Orangeburg Dist
SC from 1800 to 1830. After that he and William moved to
Colleton Co SC. Now that I look at them, it's not likely
your Thomas is from their family.

I had thought Enoch might be related to the William Rigsby
of NC who moved to GA:

That William seems to be closely related to a Jesse

Conceivably your Thomas could be related to them, but I
don't have any evidence of it. The name Thomas really
wasn't very common among the Rigsbys, except a couple of
the TN branches.

One thing that might shed some light on this would be a DNA
test. If there are any male Rigsbys from your friend's
family, they could be compared with the others.
