This is a very interesting tree as my father Edward James Rigg 1924-2003 did not know a lot about his family but his Grandfather was James Rigg. I am finding that some generations had an "s" and some didn't in his line. I go back to a James Rigg in Scotland and a James Riggs in England in the 1800's. Do you know anything of this line in the 1800's? I even have a brother named Edward Albert Rigg if you are collecting DNA. Thanks, Debbie (Rigg) Sitlington (Santa Clarita, CA)
