I am sending a request to IRAD for a copy of Hosea Riggs probate record. I am assuming he died in St. Clair County.
It does make sense that Hosea Riggs would be Isom's father since both Hosea Riggs and John Woods settled in Turkey Hill.
Yes, if you don't mind, I'd love to have your into - please send to firstname.lastname@example.org

I have not found out yet if Hosea was Isom Riggs' father. I am connected through Isom's wife Mary Woods. She is a sister to William Woods my G-G-G Grandfather.
It's great you are a Riggs descendant.
I do have a tree on Ancestry and have been working on the Riggs lately - but mostly on descendants. I am pretty sure he was born in St. Clair county. I need to pick that back up and look around some more.
Thanks for connecting :)
