I am trying to find information on James H. Rigsby Sr.
From what I have found, he was born in Wake County NC in 1757 and died there in 1799. He was married to Susannah Wright in 1777 and had several children including Daniel, John, James Jr., Elizabeth, and Susannah.

He is a direct paternal relative of mine and he is as far back as I have been able to research on my father's side of my family.

I'd really like to find any information on his parents since I have not been able to find anything beyond him.
Due to grammar and spelling challenges, it is quite possible his father was a Rigby, or perhaps Rigsbee.
If anyone has any pointers on where I can research I would greatly appreciate it.
