This is a black family.

married in Nacogdoches Co TX
both buried in Municipal cemetery, Galveston Co TX

The best match for him on the 1870 census is Aaron or Albert, sons of Patsy Rigsby in Marengo Co AL.
The only Rigsby family in that area on the 1860 census is Lawson in neighboring Choctaw Co, but as far as I can tell he had no slaves. There was an Enoch Rigby in AL who owned a lot of slaves, but his 1860 enumeration does not contain any matching Patsy's 1870 entry.
