I have found in my data base a James Riggle, but he was born sometime in the 1700's. His daughter Mary Elizabeth Riggle, she married my 3rd Gr. Grand Uncle Thomas Seaton. Is there a possible connection to this James Riggle and yours?

James Riggle, son of Mary Francis and William Riggle, born in Crawford County, IN, became a teacher, moved across the Ohio to Meade County, KY, married there (twice). His parents did not approve of the marriage on religious grounds and he was no longer welcome in their household! Mary was born in KY, to John Lowry Francis (1797-1853) and Nancy Ellen Trisler Francis (1808-1884). She was the descendant of old German "Moravian" (what we now call United Brethren), emigrants. The descendants of their youngest daughter, Henrietta Maria Francis & her husband Robert O. Jones, will hold a reunion at Spring Mill State Park, Mitchell, IN, July 13-15. We welcome everyone.
