Thanks for your reflections. I am the Great Grand Daughter of Lilburn Henderson Trigg and found this site in the process of doing research on my family. Would like to hear from anyone with additional information on the Trigg family of Abingdon.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 122nd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Deputy Sheriff Trigg,
It has taken over 118 years, but you are finally being honored. I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Washington County.

Although I am proud to be the first to leave a reflection in your honor, I am so sorry that 118 years has had to pass before you received the honor and the recognition you deserve.
To the following generations in your family, I send my condolences, not only in the cowardly act that took you from us, but in the loss of your Mom as a result of the incident. I am certain that the suspect received justice from both the Commmonwealth of Virginia, but from a higher authority as well.
Thank you for your service, you did not die in vain. A hero never dies, he becomes a memory...FOREVER.
