James M. Farris's wife's name is Bedia. In fact, it is probably Albedia as was her grandmother. Bedia is the daughter of Samuel Agrippa Riggins and Cynthia Childress. Samuel is the son of William Riggins and Nancy Atkinson. William is the son of Littleton Riggins and Mary Gant. Nancy is the dau. of Agrippa Atkinson and Martha Patsy Grace. Cynthia Childress is the dau of Alford Childress and Bedia Baggett. The whole bunch comes out of Mid 1600's Isle of Wight VA to various NC Counties, to Laurens SC, to GA ( many counties), to AL.
