I am researching William and John Riggs in Orange Co NC. My 4 great grandmother Elizabeth Riggs, wife of John C. Guess, was, I believe, the daughter of John Riggs. John C. Guess was the son of George Guess of Orange Co. I have always speculated that George Guess was married to a Laws woman because George Guess and one of the Laws men did a lot of land trading between themselves.

The Guesses came from Prince William Co VA. I don't know much about the Riggs family and nothing about the Laws family. But it looks like we are descendants of the same Riggs family. I am very interested in learning more aabout the Laws family. I would be very glad to exchange information with you.
