After marrying and outliving two wives, who are buried in this plot, he left St. Louis, never to return, and eventually was buried in Greenmount Cemetery, in Baltimore, Maryland, where he died. One of his wives was from the Crittenden family. In the future, I will detail much more about Mr. Riggs and his connection to a very famous family here in St. Louis.
It is located in the valley coming up from the entrance to the cemetery.
Both of the wives’ names have eroded due to the soft limestone, but they are legible.
I wonder when the last time a member of the family from the East Coast came to visit this grave.
