Caroline Riggs Stevenson PA IN IA 1800s
Posted by: Jeff Hix Date: May 21, 2001 at 15:24:02
  of 516

Caroline Riggs's b March 10,1806 PA d December 25, 1884 IA
m ARMER (Armor or Armour)Stevenson b December 16, 1802 NY d July 14,
1887 Dearborn co, IN
marriage date Dearborn co 6-22-1826

Manchester Twp, Dearborn co, IN 1850 Census
which is where John Henry Rigg aka Henry Rigg (Dearborn Histoy book
article) is at this time.

Any more info helpful Especially her parentage

I have a wooden nickel which says She is related to;
George Augustus Riggs b June 22, 1810 PA d December 28, 1882 Dearborn
co, IN buried in Riverview Cemetery in Dearborn co, IN
John Henry Rigg / Riggs aka Henry Rigg b April 14, 1804 PA d aft 1860 near Aurora, Daarborn co, IN
Henry's Story is on several websites:
http://hometown.aol.com/booneriggs/JohnHenryshistory.html

But HOW?

When the census taker came by August 24, 1850 ... Andrew Stevenson
age 21 born in Indiana resides with George Augustus Riggs b 1810 PA and
his family near Ghent, Carroll Co, KY which is just across the river
from Dearborn Co, IN. I think he was there to help harvest. Andrew is
NOT at this location in the 1860 census at the same location.

A later 1850 census:
Riggs, George A. KY Carroll Co. District 1 1850 Census Roll 195 page
170

When the census taker came by November 7, 1850 ... Andrew Stevenson
age 22 b Indiana resides with his family (Armour Stevenson m Caroline)
in Manchester Twp ./ Dearborn co / IN

Stevenson, Andrew age 71 IN Dearborn Manchester Township 1850 roll 141
page 371
Armour's Father? I think so.
Stevenson, Armour age 49 IN Dearborn Manchester Township 1850 roll 141
Page 371
see >> Andrew age 22

I would appreciate whatever you can share with me about Caroline
Riggs.

Is there anyway you know of to prove or disprove my theory ?


Here is my website which is an ongoing effort still in progress.
