My g Grandfather James RIGSBY was b. 1811 in England, I don't know where.
According to marriage & death records & US census, he was the son of John RIGSBY b. Scotland and mother Ellen. He married Ellen McGOLDRICK b. Ireland in New York City in 1851
He lived in Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York City where he died in 1889. His occupation was a cork cutter.
Does anyone have an idea where I might look for RIGSBY'S in England and Scotland ? Thanks very much in advance.
This is the only James Rigsby I could find in the BVR. But not the same father.
