I found this on familysearch.org. It is a free site you just need to register to search: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9YTD-QZ84?i=1280&cc=1968530&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AK35X…
It is a WW1 registration card dated Sept 12, 1918. for Rushia Holloway Wiggins Sr He states his nearest relative is Mary Prince.
That is all that I have for now.
Do you have any other hints or suggestions where to look?

Dear Ms. Wiggins,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Since Rushia H. Wiggins was born in 1899, he should be listed in the 1900 Census. We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census; the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may include the names you seek. Some of the schedules have been digitized in part or whole (for 1940 only). For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Ancestry has digitized all of the census schedules. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Archives has partnered with Ancestry to make the vast majority of their NARA-digitized holdings freely available to the public. Anyone with Internet access may create an account, access NARA records, and use other Ancestry resources, such as their educational offerings and family tree-maker application.

For information about the 1870 Census see https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/decennial-census/technical-documentation/questionnaires.1870_Census.html.
We also suggest that you search the Florida State Census via the Florida Department of State Libraries & Information Services.For birth certificates from 1899 onward, please contact the Florida Department of Vital Statistics. For births before, we suggest reviewing the FamilySearch Research wiki for Florida.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
