"James Frederick Rigg, one of the best known and most highly esteemed residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake died last evening at the family home on King St."
"Dr Rigg had been ill for many months but during the past several weeks had showed some improvement and his recovery seemed assured. his death comes as a great loss to residents of this town and district where he was loved by rich and poor as a real friend as well as a doctor."
He leaves behind two sons, Dr Charles Bruce Rigg of Niagara-on-the-Lake and Frederic Jackson Rigg of University of Toronto.
Both sons followed in their father's footsteps and became a family physician in their home town.
Frederic would care for the residents of Niagara for 29 years until his passing and Charles for 48 years before he, too, passed.
The mystery is Thomas Bruce Rigg who was born in April of 1941 - five months after the death of James Frederick.
I am assuming that Mary Morris Rigg, born 1927 may be Frederic Jackson's wife.
Since Charles and his family are on the other side of this memorial stone, I am making another leap and assuming that Mary and Frederic Jackson did not have any children.
But I could be wrong. They may be still alive.
