Children of David Rigsby and Margaret Biddle:
Ann M Rigsby b. about 1819-00-00
Susan Rigsby b. 1819-06-13
Arlena Rigsby b. about 1820-00-00 d. 1872-06-25
Andrew Jackson Rigsby b. about 1826-00-00
David II Rigsby b. about 1828-00-00 d. 1873-03-11
Samuel Rigsby b. about 1832-00-00



He was born between 1784 and 1790.
He probably died between 1830 and 1840 in Jefferson Co VA or Berkeley Co VA.

married in Berkeley Co VA

He must be the father of Susan and Ann. They married in Berkeley Co VA in 1841 and 1845, and
David's was the only Rigsby family there on the 1840 and 1850 censuses. [see notes for his wife]
There was a George Rigsby b VA living in CA on the 1850 census. He might be a son of this David, but the census entries don't indicate another son.

He may be a son of Drury.
Or he may be the David who was son of William.
Note, however, that this David was in Ashe Co NC when Drury's son Thomas was in neighboring
Wilkes Co, and that David moved to Berkeley and Jefferson Co VA (now WV), which are very near
Fauquier Co VA, where Drury was born.

1830 census Jefferson Co VA p137

[David 2, Andrew 4, David, Arlena 10, Susan 11, Ann 11, Margaret 37]

[I'm not positive this is him, but it pretty much has to be.]

1820 census Berkeley Co VA p83 [sheet is water-damaged and mostly illegible]
David Rigsbey 1 M 26-45, unknown females

Is this him?
1810 census Ashe Co NC p85
D Rigsbey 1 M 16-26, 1 F 26-45, 1 F 45+

[I'm starting to think it isn't. He shouldn't be that far south.]
