* " The Robert L. Riggs Home Page"*

Updated September 6, 2000


I am researching the family name RIGGS, Aaron Riggs is my gggrandfather,from my fathers side of the family. I have found he was born in Lincoln County Ky.Oct.15,1805. He married Jerusha Sutton born August 13,1806, also in Lincoln County Ky. I have found many decendants of Aaron and Jerusha but have not been able to find his parents or siblings. I have found several Aaron's, but none seem to match my Aaron. Aaron and his wife had (3) sons born in Ky. Redden, Uriah and Samual Green before they moved to Orange county Indiana in circa 1838. In Indiana they were blessed with Mahala, Harvey, John Henry (my great Grandfather). They moved,circa 1841,to Richland county Illinois, where they lived the remainder of their lives. They are both buried in Houser Cemetary which is located NW of Olney, Ill.
Since the original entry I have found he had a brother named William who married Thirza ???. I found his will was to be probated in ca. 1890. It appeared in "The Orange Peelings" a peroidical put out by The Orange County Historical Society of Orange Co. Indiana
Any help on my subjects would be greatley appreciated.
