1850: Missouri to Virginia
Posted by: Ken Hinds (ID *****4287) Date: January 04, 2011 at 16:02:43
In Reply to: New and Improved Annotated Rigsby Census by Ken Hinds of 1063


Crawford Co

T Rigsby 40 TN
C Rigsby 35 NC
W T Rigsby (m) 1 TN

[Who is this? There isn't anyone 49 to 51 born in TN on the
1860 census.]
[I suspect the son is the William T in Texas Co MO in 1860.
He and a 9-year-old brother are in another household,
implying their parents are dead.]

[Thomas Rigsby bought land here in 1857.]

Monroe Co

[R05.2.6] Hartwell Brigby 34 KY
Mary A 34 KY
Eliza J [Cornick] 15 KY
Mary A [Cornick] 12 KY
Thomas [Cornick] 10 MO
Paulina 8 MO
John G 5 MO
Parthena 2 MO

[It definitely says Brigby, but this is Hartwell Rigsby.]
[The older three children are from his wife's first
marriage to Thomas Cornick.]

[R05.2.9] William Rigsby 22 KY
Sarah A 20 KY [Sarah Ann Herndon]
Andrew J 5/12 MO

[He is Jesse in 1860]

Elizabeth Noel? household
[R05.2] John Rigsley or Rigsby 58 NC [should be 63]

[Is this him? Two of his children are here, and he is not
in Allen Co KY.]
[He dies before 1860]

Pulaski Co

[R56.1] John Rigsbey 32 NC
Margaret 30 KY [Margaret Clayton]
James T 11 TN
Andrew J 8 TN
Jacob R 6 TN
Robert H 4 MO
Narcissa J 1 MO

[moves to Maries Co MO]

[R56.5] Hillsman Rigsbey 25 NC
Susan 22 TN [Susan Clayton]
Martha J 3 MO

[Hillsman dies. Children move to Maries Co MO.]

July Ann 38 TN

*[He dies in 1854.]

Marry Rigsby 53 NC [widow of R56]
James H 20 TN
Kelly 17 TN
Elizabeth 15 TN
Lydia M 30 TN

[they move to Maries Co MO, except Kelly who remains in
Pulaski Co]

New York

Columbia Co

Solomon Shattuck household
Joseph Rigsby 15 NY

[This is the only time he appears. The only Rigsby in NY in
1840 is Peter of Chenango Co, and I think he was really a
Bigsby. There was a Jonathan Rigsby in Oneida Co in 1830,
but he vanishes after that.]

North Carolina

Anson Co

Benjamin Garris? household
[R35.2.4] Andrew Rigsby 19 GA

[moves back to Randolph Co AL]

Ann 29 ENG
William 10 NC
Cynthia 4 NC
Sarah 1 NC
Benjamin Head 20

[Why the large gap in the children's ages?]
