In Reply to: Joseph P. Rigg by Susan Allen of 70

Joseph Palmer Rigg seems to be the brother of Mahlon Rigg (1839 - 1925), Rebecca Rigg (1843 - ?) and Jonas Rigg (1847 - ?). As far as I have been able to find out so far, they are children of John Rigg and Mary Anna Fissel(sp?), who were supposedly married in Washington Co., Pennsylvania. I don't have confirmation on the parents or their marriage yet.

I've only recently started on the Rigg/Riggs branch of my husband's family (descended from Mahlon's son Ira), so there are still a lot of blanks, as well as information that I strongly suspect, but don't have full confirmation on, so take this with a grain of salt. (For example, I have copies of the 1880 census records for Mahlon's family, but not Joseph's.) I haven't followed all of Mahlon's children down the lines yet, either.

Next time I get to a copy of the 1850 census, I'll see if I can find Mahlon and Joseph with their parents.

What I have at this point:

John Rigg (abt 1808/1815 - abt 1875)
  + Mary Anna Fissel(sp?) (abt 1808/1816 - abt 1885); m. Washington Co., Pennsylvania (?)

            ii. Myrtle W. Quaintance (1889 - ?)
            iii. Eunice C. Quaintance (1895 - 1982)
            iv. Edna Alice Quaintance (1897 - 1920)
        2. John Rigg (30 Apr 1862 - 26 Aug 1949)
      + Christina Musser (1866 - 1931)
