[He and Minnie are marked White, but the children are marked Mulatto.]

Strangely, there is only one 20-year old male slave of a Rigsby in NC on the 1860 census:
1860 census Chatham Co NC p69
Atlas Riggsbee household
slave (m) 65
slave (m) 30
slave (m) 20
slave (f) 4
slave (m) 2

Presumably that is his father and older brother. The youngest two are probably from the brother.
Atlas had slaves on the 1850 census, but they don't match these. His mother had several slaves, including a 20-year-old male and an 11-year-old male, and a 60-year-old male.
