son of James Riggs and Maggie Clevenger;

Date of birth of 18 Sept 1885 is in the official records, however Noah's brother Lawson was born in Feb 1885 and Noah's sister Rinda was born in Sept 1884. Also, Noah claimed he was actually born in the 1870s. As elderly people, Noah, Lawson, Rinda, and their siblings and cousins would all argue over who was older. Several of them didn't know their true birth dates;

married Pearl Leona Boley on 7 Nov 1908 in Knoxville Tennessee and again on 6 Mar 1919 in Knoxville. It is not known exactly why Noah and Pearl re-married, including going through the bureaucracy of a bond and license, since they never divorced. Leona did lie about her age on the original 1908 Marriage License, possibly due to the fact that she was underage and marrying without parental permission which would make their "first" marriage invalid.
