The earliest progenitors of our Brannick Riggs family, that we have records for, are Thomas (1802) and Rhoda Casey (1804) Riggs and their children.  Their children are William Carroll Riggs (1822), Rebecca Riggs (1824), John C. Riggs (1825), Brannick Riggs (1828), Barney Kemp Riggs (1831), Thomas Riggs (1832),  James Monroe Riggs (1835), Margaret Riggs (1838) Stuart, Martha Riggs (1840) Whitehead, Rhoda Riggs (1842) Copeland and Charles Riggs (1845).

RIGGS FAMILY HISTORY

BRANNICK RIGGS FAMILY ARRIVES IN COCHISE COUNTY, ARIZONA, 1879 

In 1871 the Brannick Riggs Family joined a large wagon train headed for California from Bandera, Texas. They left Fort Riggs -- which they had built while living on the Medina River -- and traveled to Chicosa Canyon near Trinidad, Colorado. They lived here until the latter part on 1876 when they left to start again for California with Arizona as their immediate destination. Brannick's brother Jim and his family had settled in Dos Cabezas, Arizona in 1875 and had written about the magnificent Sulphur Springs Valley.

They came down through New Mexico and into Arizona in 1877. From St. Johns on the Little Colorado River, Fort Apache and on to Fort Thomas, they settled nearby for about a year at a place which became known as Buttermilk Point.

In the spring of 1879 they again started for Dos Cabezas, moving to Big Immigrant Canyon, east of Fort Bowie. Several month later when the spring of water went dry, they moved to Sulphur Springs Valley through the famous Apache Pass settling first for a few months just south of the Old Star Ranch and then moved to what became known as the Riggs Home Ranch, the focus of the Riggs Settlement.

RIGGS FAMILY CEMETERY

 

On the side of State Route 186, as it wanders through Riggs family cattle ranches in Cochise County, nestled among a grove of Arizona Cypress trees, is the Riggs Family Cemetery.  The towering Chiricahua Mountains rise majestically to the East, a view of the pastures of family ranches and the Sulphur Springs Valley opens out to the South and West and the Dos Cabezas peaks rise to the Northwest.  It is a quiet place.  A place to sit and listen to the sounds that surround you, the buzzing of insects, the songs of birds, the occasional car passing by or the far away sound of an airplane flying overhead, and feel a cool breeze swirl easily past.  There is peace here.

    In October 1879, the Riggs family arrived in Cochise County, at that time Pima County.  At first, they set up camp in Emigrant Canyon on the Northeast side of the Chiricahua Mountains.  Life then as now depended on a perpetual water supply.  The water disappeared in Emigrant Canyon forcing a move by the family.  The men folk had been exploring the area and had discovered the Sulphur Springs Valley.  It was a large valley with lots of grass. On the Southwest side of the mountain in the foothills, they found a permanent water supply.  So they moved, settling first just below the hill where the cemetery is located.  Later they moved up the canyon.  This was the beginning of Home Ranch and the founding of a small cattle empire.

    On July 28 and August 2, 1885, tragedy struck this family with the deaths of two children, Frank Thomas and Edith Bessie Riggs.  This was the beginning of the Riggs Family Cemetery.

    The two large headstones in the center mark the resting place of Brannick and Mary Elizabeth Riggs, father and mother of this large family.  Their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, even great-great-great-grandchildren, lay gathered around them.

    Family members married and took up ranching in the Riggs Settlement,  not roaming far.  For those that did move away, when their time came to leave this life they wanted to return home to be laid to rest under the large Arizona Cypress trees of the family cemetery.  The Cemetery was small at first but as it filled with family members an expansion was necessary.

    This is a family cemetery.  The requirements for burial here are simple.  You must be a direct descendant of Brannick and Mary Elizabeth Robbins Riggs or married to a direct descendant.
