    1. [TRIGG] JOHN J TRIGGS, b ca 1794 England-DIED IN GA ca 1856
    3. I find that there is no rootsweb list for the TRIGGS surname but understand that this Trigg list also includes that name? Trying to learn more about the Rev John J Triggs and his earliest born children. I have reason to believe that his second daughter was Maria Triggs, born ca 1816, maybe in England? If I am trying to connect to the right Maria, she would have died in Freestone Co TX after 1900. In Rev Triggs' final Will, he leaves some property to his daughter Maria and mentions her husband, Thomas A Golding. This property was in District 21, Stewart Co GA, probably around Lumpkin GA. My Goulding family also was shown in the 1800's  21st district of Lumpkin, Stewart Co, GA as Golding on some documents/records. They are also show as Golden and Goulden, as well. What confusion this has caused. Regardless, a lot of what I know about my Goulding family members could very well connect to the Triggs surname. My GG grandfather was Thomas A Goulding/Golding/Golden, born ca 1818 and his wife was named Mariah. She was born ca 1817; most records show born GA but a couple say England. On some family records she is also shown as Maria. I've looked at several trees on Ancestry and one tree in particular seems promising. However, there is no wife shown who could have been the mother of Maria or Nancy Triggs, born ca 1815. The Rev was married 3 or 4 times but his very first wife is unknown. Think he married again ca 1824 so that eliminates Maria and Nancy. Believe the first wife could have been married to him while in England and it has been mentioned in my family history that either my Thomas or Mariah was supposed to be from England. Can anyone provide a connection or more information to these families? Paula
