Trail Family Genealogy Forum
Dear Phillip, Nathan Trail is on the electoral role for 1820 for Election District 8 County: Allegany State: Maryland I have him with a son James born about 1818 married to an Elizabeth Means, with three children Nathan Hugh and James listed in the 1860.census that he named his eldest son Nathan in the tradition of the time would I think support that James sen. is a son of Nathan and Sussanna Buxton. Also in the 1880 census James junior is living with his mother whom he names Elizabeth. James sen's brother John Buck Trail also named a son Nathan
James sen. appears to have died between 1860 and 1870 I hope this helps and I have not intrued from another country and upset you but I do have access to Ancestry.com and felt I could help Elsie Ritchie
