Any Kinfolks Out There?

The farthest I've been able to trace the Rigsdells in my family is to my great-great grandfather Frank Rigsdell, who was born somewhere in Mississippi in 1866 and died in Anderson County, Texas in 1960. This wasn't very difficult to obtain because my great grandmother is still living.

Frank Rigsdell, whose mother is said to have been 100% Choctaw Indian, married Kizah (Kizzie) Hallmark in 1886. Their children were/are:

Lillie (Bee) Rigsdell Thomas (1887-1970)
Nettie Mae Rigsdell Moser (1889-1990)
Martha Ann (Pat) Rigsdell Swinburn (1892-1981)
Frank Hamilton (Buddy) Rigsdell (1895-1932)
Fred Rigsdell (1897-1975)
Bessie Maude Rigsdell Jones (1899- )
Morgan Winston (Wince) Rigsdell (1902-1984)
Kizzie Jane Rigsdell (1904-1908)

*Some dates given are of my best approximation.

I'd like to hear from anyone who might have any information on any Rigsdells before Frank Rigsdell, or from any descendants.
