Disputed Origins

The Elizabeth Rose daughter of Robert and Margery Rose is documented to have been about age 13 in 1634. That means that if it was this Elizabeth Roosa she would have on been about fourteen years of age when she married Edward Riggs. Other documentation states that Elizabeth Rose daughter of Robert and Margery Rose married and had children with a Michael Taintor.[1][2] There is no mention of a marriage to Edward Riggs.

Biography

At this time, no documentation can be found as to when this Elizabeth was born or baptized. However, R. C. Anderson in his "Great Migration" says that based on the date of marriage, the birth can be placed at say 1615.[3]

Elizabeth migrated in 1634, probably from England. This year is based on her marriage at Roxbury in 1635.[3]

Elizabeth married Edward Riggs, his second marriage, on April 5, 1635 at Roxbury.[4]The couple had no children.[5]

Elizabeth (Roosa) Riggs died September 2, 1669 and was buried in Roxbury.[3][6]. Edward's will is dated exactly one year later, 2 Sept. 1670 and proved March 6, 1761/2.[5]

Jonathan, please see disputed origins on Roosa-333.

Do you have any scholarly source for the birth date and place?

I believe this profile should be merged with Roosa-333.

Thank you Cheryl

I find these links to Findagrave - particularly Unknown Burial etc. no picture, no proof whatsoever - to be clutter, rather than useful. IMHO!

Since there is no photo at the Find A Grave site of this profile, that source is insufficient.

I will move it under "see also" and replace it with Anderson's "Great Migration" source.

Roosa-355 and Roosa-333 do not represent the same person because: These are not the same individual as one is the step mother-in-law of the other one. Birth dates and death dates are different.

Roosa-69 and Rooke-21 appear to represent the same person because: Both of these individuals married Edward Riggs in 1635. According to The Riggs Genealogy http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~fesschequy/Riggs.html Roosa-69 is the correct one.
