I am looking for the family of Mrs. Margaret Riggs who lived in Rowlesburg, Preston Co., West Virginia.
Mrs. Riggs filed a affidavit which was found in my GG Grandfather Jasper Dawson's pension records from the Civil War dated 1903. Mrs. Riggs claimed to have been Jasper Dawson's cousin and lived nearby his parents while Jasper grew up. Jasper Dawson was born in Maryland. So I am hoping if I can trace back Margaret Riggs perhaps I can find who Jasper Dawson's parents might have been. Suspect the Dawson family may have been in Allegeny County which is not far from Preston Co., W.V.
