Dear Gerri: My grandmother was a Rigsby. She was born in Adairville, Ky. Her father was L.Rigsby and her mother was, I believe Serena Carter. I am now working on the history line
through my church(Mormon). My grandmother had a brother named Thomas also, so I'm sure there is a connection. I have to find the marraige records first of L. (Alonzo?)Rigsby and Straney (Serena)Carter in Adairville in 1883. From then I can go back.
It's a tedious process. Please don't give up hope. I will keep you posted when I find anything out. If you do, please
