TOWNS

In 1829 Lauren Riggs and John Brown, natives of Avon, Livingston County, New York, came to the valley and settled on land one mile above Green Point, on the banks of the Tittabawassee. A son of the former, named John Riggs, was born in November, 1829, and was said to have been the first white boy born in Saginaw County. [1]
