1. Holley Partin

Children of Jesse Rigsby and Holley Partin:
Holly Rigsby



He probably was born in the 1740s, but may have been born as late as 1754.

His will was written in 1807. Apparently he died before 1810.

I am not positive he was the father of Holly, but it seems very likely.
His children may have included: Jenny who married in Orange Co NC 1810-05-04 Anderson Coulter, Guilly who married in Orange Co NC 1816-12-31 Martin Glenn, Thomas, Peggy who married in Orange Co NC 1806-04-07 Eason Pritchard, Robert E who married in Orange Co NC 1804-12-18 Mary Pickett

On the census he is shown with only daughters, but he easily could have had children who were on their own before 1790.

He may be a brother of Drury and Travis.
