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.

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 November 15, 1914.
When a young man he located in Gonzales, Texas, living there until the outbreak of the Civil War, when as a Confederate 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 decided 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:
