I am trying to prove that Allen RIGSBY who was lndentured to Matthew STROUD in 1779 was a) not related to the RIGBYES who at the time lived in Savannah Ga. b) more than likely was related to the RIGSBEES of Orange and Chatham Ctys of NC during that timeframe. Am trying to establish his mother and whether she was related or he was related to the STROUD’s. He inherited from a Sarah LAIN (Sarah was supposedly his mother’s name) Estate. Was she his mother and why did she leave him with the STROUD’s until he was grown?
