Riggen, John Wesley

Riggen, John Wesley, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was born in Maryland Aug. 26, 1794. His parents migrated to Mason County, Ky., and, being poor and in a new country, were unable to give him a proper education. In 1816 he was converted, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church. He commenced as a local preacher in 1823, and in 1827 was ordained deacon. He joined the traveling connection in 1834, and was ordained elder in 1835. He was a member of the Kentucky Conference until his death, Sept. 30, 1845. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, M.E. Church, South, 1846, p. 56.
