Parents of James Riggs Williamson are Joseph and Sabrina Williamson of Starks,Somerset,ME.James is buried in the Weeks Mills Cemetery with his parents.
I am trying to determine if he served in the Union Army during the Civil War. There is a listing for a James Riggs in the roster of the 8th Regiment of the Maine Infantry;but no additional information such as a middle name or initial,hometown,etc. that could confirm that James Riggs Williamson is the same person as James Riggs in the 8th Regiment.
Any ideas on a way to get more information that might prove/disprove the connection? Thank you in advance for your help. Miriam K. Buckley
