Rizpah BRYANT

Rizpah was also known as Rispah, Arispey, Ariffy or Arisba.  This name fascinates me, it is a rare Hebrew name and almost all that have this name are related in some way.  She is my second cousin seven times removed; we are related through Capt. Joseph and Joanna (Thomas) Vaughan.  He filed for a Widow’s Pension in 1843 for her husband Eleazer’s service in the Revolutionary War in 1775, 1778 and 1778.[1]
