John Rigsby Genealogy
Record modified: 2021-02-19
He was born between 1755 and 1774.
He may have died between 1810 and 1820.
I think he was a brother of my James Rigsby. Note that my James' widow
and children sold land in Wake Co to John Rigsby when they moved to SC.
His children may have included: Hillsman, John II, Peggy who married 1816-08-05 Henry Ford
Was he the father of this John and this James?
Apparently his wife was Charlotte.
This page says:
Wake County deeds show that on 7 Nov 1800 three deeds were
made to David Grant, all from Mayton Thompson. The first deed
was for land on Little Lick Creek, and the other was a bill of sale
for sundry property, and the third was for land on Herons Creek,
waters of New Hope Creek. All three were witnessed by John
Rigsby and Charlotte Rigsby.
This was the only John Rigsby in Wake Co on the 1790 and 1800 censuses.
I suppose Charlotte could be his sister or mother, but wife seems more likely.
from the Maggie Boyd book:
