The Riggs Family of Lavaca County Texas Updated August 26, 2007
About Our Family Research
I have been working on my family tree since June of 2006, it takes alot of time and hard work, but I enjoy it most of the time. I have acquired all my grandmothers old family pictures, but most of them are unidentified. So that is my new mission, to find names that match these faces. I will upload some of these pictures with the hope that someone out there can tell me who they are. These pictures once belonged to Jewel Bankhead Riggs, and her family. Surnames related to this family are: Munson, Riggs, Bankhead, and Hander as well as many other branches. Most of these people lived around the Lavaca County Texas area.
Unknown Photo (32 KB) three ladys by two graves, I feel that this could be the graves of the two Riggs brothers Emmett H. & Louis M.Riggs, one killed the other and then killed his self the same day, they are buried beside each other in the pilot grove cemetery in Lavaca County Texas.
