Hi all fellow researchers;

I am researching RIGGS in Newfoundland and any surname that is connected with it in Newfoundland. Thomas Riggs and Honora Collins (married in 1838) had 5 children, two of which are below. Would like more info on their spouses and any children they had.

Rachel was born June 15, 1843 in Bay De Verde, Nfld. She married twice (1)Andrew BAILEY (2)Thomas WHALEN

Anne was born on March 28, 1845       Bay De Verde, Nfld. She married       John MURPHY Nov 6, 1865 in New Brunswick.

The next two children beong to Thomas's brother Stephen and his wife Bridget Howley (married 1839)

Catherine was born on June 2, 1842 in BDV, Nfld. She married Edward LEE on Oct 24, 1863

Ellen was born on Oct 15, 1844 in BDV, Nfld. She married Jeremiah WOODROW on Nov 25, 1859

Any info at all is appreciated

thanks Laura
