Ann Rigsby b. 1754-12-27
John Rigsby b. 1758-11-16


Notes:

[R110]

married in Shebbear, Devon

According to the document below his grandfather was a John Rigsby who had a brother William.
That has to be John 1679-03-11 Shebbear, whose sister Mary married the Francis Millman mentioned in the document.
Their parents were John d 1727 Shebbear + Frances (unknown). The older John's parents were probably the John + Prudence of early Shebbear.
The missing generation (this John's father) should be the John + Mary who had children in Bradford and Shebbear in the 1720s. The problem is that their son John was born 1723-01-27, and they had a daughter in 1729.
