Ancestor Info
Name: Stephen Madison RiggsRank: 2nd Sergeant Company: I

'Tobe', as he was known, joined Company I 'Navarro Rifles' in July 1861. He never missed a roll call. Was sick on the morning of September 19, 1863 and was told to go to the doctor who would excuse him from duty. Tobe refused and joined his men in formation. That evening a yankee ball shattered his knee. He was taken to a field hospital where the leg was amputated. Tobe was given chloroform to put him to sleep for the surgery. He never woke up and died on September 21st. He was buried on the battlefield. His body was moved when the battlefield became a national park. Now in an unmarked grave in Marietta.
