About Elizabeth Dodd

The naysayers here who doubt this line, use no real sources to say otherwise. I am a direct descendant, and she was the wife of Daniel Dodd/Dod and of the RIGGS lineage!

From: http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/b/a/l/Wendy-Balcerzak-VA/WEBSITE-0001/UHP-0079.html

This is a tenuous connection, as different sources list her as the wife of Daniel Dod/Dodd.

She was the stepdaughter of Aaron Thompson, as her mother, Hannah Browne Riggs married 2nd, Aaron Thompson.

"The Miller files (Doris Horvath) call Samuel's wife, Elizabeth Thompson, dau of Thomas and Mary Thompson. Thomas was a fairly old man when he died in 1675, and there is no indication his daughter was an infant when he died. It is also suggested that she was the daughter of Joseph RIGGS of Newark, NJ, who died in 1685". [Harmon R. Clark, Jr.]

This conflicting information makes the RIGGS line questionable, though likely.

Ancestors of Joseph Alexander Cook: http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/h/a/m/ and others (John K. Matthews) list this Elizabeth Riggs as marrying Daniel Dodd (b. cir 1680 in Orange, NJ), 6/17/1702 in Newark, NJ

This is probably also unlikely as she would have been 5 yrs older than Daniel Dodd, as well as 27 yrs. old at the time of this marriage.
