John William Charles RIGGS
My father, John William Charles RIGGS, b. March 5, 1909, was born in Jeanette, Decatur Co., TN. He moved his family to Southwestern MI around 1938 where he found work at the House of David vineyards. He died April 19, 1987 in St. Joseph, Berrien Co., MI.
He is descended from Melvin Claud RIGGS and Hattie Ovella COLEMAN. Melvin is descended from Isaah Calvin RIGGS, b. 1834, AL; d. after 1910, Decatur Co., TN.
Isaah's father was either Jesse or John Washington RIGGS. If anyone knows the exact identity of his father, I would appreciate hearing from you. ... show more
