I have been told that Nancy and Gilbert had 8 children.The 1900 census haas only 4 children being born.
Nancy died after the 1900 census was taken, in a wagon accident.She was about 55, when she died.Gilbert married twice more after she died.
I have photos of Nancy when she was 15 and when she was an older woman and know more of the story of her death.I have also seen a photo of Sarah Elizabeth and her family
I would like to know more about Nancy, her parents, Benjamin C. RIGGINS and Lucinda, his parents, Laban RIGGANS and Dorcus ANDERSON.
