The Abram Triggs that you recorded is not Triggs, but Trigg spelled without the "s" in the surname. They are two very different families not related to eachother at ALL! Triggs spelled with the added "s" migrated from Virginia to Scioto County, Ohio then westward to Hendricks County, Indiana and finally to Iowa where they scattered all over the area. Hugh family.

Trigg spelled with the "s" in the surname is another large family, but the majority of that family remained in the South. They have a history that is very well documented in James Knox Trigg book entitled "TRIGG". That family come from Cornwall, England.

Triggs on the other hand are still lerking behind the trees in Virginia. The parents of Thomas and William Triggs, brothers who migrated to Scioto County, Ohio about 1802 still remain a mystery. Descendants claim they were Dutch, but this researcher has not been able to prove that theory and I have been researching the facts for the past 33 years.
