Hi Richard! My name is Sue Alexander, wife of Wm.My maiden name was Rigg.And, yes, the name Rigg often is found with the "s."I'm not familiar with the names you mentioned; but, I know that I'm a descendant (actually twice) of John Stockley.The Stockley name continued on, too, in our family through the "Craig" line, my grandmother's maiden name who married the Rigg.However, my connection is definitely through the Rigg, Vawter, Sparks and Towles.
To clarify, does the DNA match my Rigg DNA?
Have you heard of David Rigg in Virginia?He has also done extensive research and we share the same Rigg DNA.
Samuel Rigg and Nancy Vawter Rigg lived in NC for a time before heading West.Starting with my father it was Hubert Jackson, William Earl, Jesse B, John, and Samuel.When They got to IL, John married an Alice Cox (Buchanan line) in Morgan Co., IL.Eventually they moved on to McDonough Co, Bethel twp.
I don't have time this minute; but, I'll check my tree for dates.Return a note soon to my email!
I would be very interested in corresponding with you.My home email is email@example.com. Sue Alexander
