prepared by Jean T. Gillett
Gillett, Jean Thomson (Main Author)
5, 59 p.


Ephraim Rigdon lived in the "Pee Dee" area of South Carolina as evidenced by a doctor's account books between 1786 & 1790. He appeared in the 1790 Georgetown Dist., S.C. census & the Barnwell District, S.C. 1810 census. Between 1778 and 1783 an Ephraim Rigdon entered land adjoining a Stephen Rigdon in Chatham County, North Carolina. He was married prior to 1774, probably in North Carolina and may have had 2 children, Ephraim & William G.

After discussing 4 generations beginning with Ephraim Rigdon, this material is presented in sections by states all beginning with the phrase, "The Southern Migration." The states include: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas. Some states are repeated more than once.

The emphasis of the content is on the surname "Rigdon," not related families.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
