Looking for information about Jeremiah P. TROTTER and Lucretia HEDRICK.

According to the 'Indiana Marriages thru 1850' website
(, Jeremiah and Lucretia married 4-9-1842 in Hendricks Co., IN.

1850 Dearborn Co., IN, City of Aurora, Dwl 101, Fam 104:

I am tracking the HEDRICK surname but I would like to know more about Jeremiah. I have information that states his parents were Benjamin & Mary (BROWN) TROTTER but I do not know if it is reliable or not ( Benjamin supposedly died 1849 in Aurora, Dearborn Co., IN. I know there were TROTTERS living in Hendricks Co. IN at the time of Jeremiah's marriage. Does anyone know the relationship between the Dearborn Co., IN TROTTERS and the Hendricks Co., IN TROTTERS? Does anyone know what the relationship is between Jeremiah and the Thomas C. TROTTER that is living in his household in 1850?

Thanks for any help.
