Edward Rigsby Genealogy
Record modified: 2014-07-23
He was born between 1790 and 1800, probably closer to 1790.
This is probably the Edward Rigsby who married in Wake Co NC 1823-07-02 Martha Sims/Symes d/o Redding Sims/Symes + (unknown).
He is no doubt a son of James, John, Frederick, or Archibald. My guess would be James.
He appears only on the 1830 census. Possibly he died before 1840.
Was he father of Henry Edward Rigsby?
I'm pretty sure he had a daughter Sarah who married in Wake Co NC 1821-11-22 William E Roberts.
He was a Justice of the Peace in Wake Co NC.
1830 census Wake Co NC p 409
