RE: John Rigg Photo Request
I originally reported that I wasn't able to find the marker for John, however as I was going through the photos at took today I realized that I had the photo you were looking for, I just wasn't able to read the marker at the cemetery! Anyway, I posted the photo to John's memorial (Beulah Baptist Cemetery).

Glad I could help!
Happy to help! There were a few other Shupe names in the cemetery that I found the same day, so be sure to check those out. The Find-a-grave community is really wonderful and has already helped me so much in my own genealogy search. :)
