Re: Aaron Rigsby-born N. C.
I think years ago we corresponded but can't remember what family it was about. Send me a list of your surnames & dates & maybe we can help each other.
1850 finds Jonathan in Sullivan Co.,Tnn. & poss Aarrons with him since Aaron's 1st. ch. was b.1849 & his 1st. wf. was b. in Tnn.
Our Thos. D. b. 1822son Thos. Lewis b. 1851 Smythe/Tazewell/Pocohantas Co., Va.
Our Thos. D. 1822 would have been your Aaron's 1st. cousin.
It could have been that the families migrated west together. Our line stopping in these Co.'s & yours moving on westward.
