RIGGS REUNION AT COUNTY PARK - Descendants Of David S. And Kessiah Slider Riggs


The Riggs family in Calhoun sprung from the marriage of David S. and Kessiah Slider Riggs, who moved from Tyler to Calhoun in 1850. David and his wife lived in a log cabin near the Hardman estate on the right fork of Barnes Run, near the existing Slider Cemetery.

The Riggs family and extended family held their reunion Saturday at the County Park barn.
