daughter of George and Mariah Boley;

wife of Noah William Riggs. They married on 7 Nov 1908 in Knoxville Tennessee and then 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.
