Immigrated from Alabama, USA. Edward Saunders Trigg was born on 14 August 1818, in Pulaski, Giles, Tennessee, United States, his father, Abraham Trigg, was 37 and his mother, Martha Theodosia Saunders, was 31. He married Martha Jane Shepherd on 11 March 1842, in Sumner, Tennessee, United States. They were the parents of at least 4 sons and 3 daughters.

Mr. E. S, Trigg of Alabama, came to Brazil in May; has made a small crop of cotton and corn on the lands of Col. Norris. Planted in the new ground about 18 acres made 9 bales of cotton. He has bought 100 acres of land at $5 per acre; is putting up a dwelling house, and expects to plant 20 acres of cotton and a few acres in corn in the coming year....

In the death of Mr. E. S. Trigg, the community lost a good citizen.
Blockton, Jan.1 – (Special) Mr. E. S. Trigg died at the home of his son, Dr. A.. W. Trigg, yesterday evening at 2 o'clock. The old gentleman was 82 years of age and was a very remarkable man in a great many respects. Before the Civil War, he was an extensive planter and slaveholder, and immediately after the confederacy had fallen, and a vast amount of his property had left him with lightning rapidity, and the country was overrun with rads and Negro domination, the elements were too warm for the old gentlemen’s proud southern blood in the conquered land, so, like a number of other strong-willed men, he packed up his flock and cast his lot in Brazil.
For four years the old gentleman lived and prospered in that foreign land, and when the thunders of reconstruction had ceased to roll, and law ann good order had once more been established in the southland, Mr. Trigg became once more a citizen of the United States. Another remarkable incident in his life is this: for a great many years after he returned from South America he was engaged in the Mercantile business in Tuscaloosa County, During which time a vast amount of business was transacted, yet he never lost an account. He was a successful businessman, a conscientious Baptist, and a lifelong Democrat. He leaves three sons and a daughter and a host of friends to mourn his loss.

Andrew was on board the Tartar where he met

no descendants in Brazil.
"Sailed on the Tartar"Amongst the people,
there was a kind boy, named Andrew Jackson
Peacock, with a very adventurous spirit, who
faced the unknown all alone. This young man
was not satisfied being alone for long time. He
loved Lockie Trigg and got married just after
landing in Rio."

CAPT. A. J. PEACOCK DEAD
Another of the Thin, Grey Line Responds to Call of Taps
Andrew Jackson Peacock was born in Georgia, November
24, 1834; was converted quite a young man, and joined the
Methodist church; was happily married to Miss Lockie N.
Trigg, August 29, 1869, and peacefully fell asleep Nov-
ember 15, 1914.
When a young man he located in Gonzales, Texas, living
there until the outbreak of the Civil War, when as a Con-
federate soldier he went to do service for his country. He
enlisted at the beginning, gallantly serving until the close
under Gen. Forrest, whom he greatly loved.
Returning to his old home and finding conditions so
changed with strife prevailing as a result of war, he de-
cided to move and located at Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he
met and married Miss. Trigg.
Captain Peacock was a member of the Masonic Lodge.
He was a kind, loving father and a faithful friend. He
leaves seven children to mourn his loss, Dr. L. Peacock,
Blocton, Ala.; Clarence Peacock, Florida; Misses Daisy
and Nellie Peacock, Elmore; Marvin and Vernon Peacock,
Old Spring Hill, Ala.
He was ill only one day. In the morning apparently in his
usual health, before another dawn, the Death angel visited
that home of love and happiness, entered, and whispered
to the sufferer, "Come up higher into the eternal garner
of God's love." The manly form grown frail from seventy-
nine years of pilgrimage grew still and the life which had
been such a blessing in that household begun anew in "the
house not made with hands."
Andrew and Lockie would have seven children:
