Children of Woodson Rigsby and Nancy Glenn:
Mary M Rigsby b. about 1835-00-00
Hawkins Rigsby b. about 1840-00-00
Nathaniel M Rigsby b. about 1842-00-00



He probably was born in Wake Co NC
He probably died between 1870 and 1880.

married in Orange Co NC

I would guess he is a son of Jesse O, but Jesse's pension record and his wife's will show he isn't.
Bondsman for his marriage was Archibald Rigsby. That should be either Jesse's son or R03 Archibald. Since he wasn't Jesse's son, that would seem to indicate he was s/o R03. The unusual name Archibald in both families also suggests R03 Archibald was a brother of Jesse.
He may be a brother of Henry C. They are on the same page of the 1850 census.

He was a farmer.
