Frederick (b. before 1782) m. Agnes Horton is much too old to be the illegitimate son of Nancy Trent b 1780 to 1784 who is the daughter of William Trent and Susannah Bryant. Nor is it known that she had illegitimate children as she could have married someone named Trent. Her son Frederick most definitely married Elizabeth Ashworth in Barren Co. KY. Her will in Barren CO., KY in 1834 names Thomas and Frederick. This same Frederick's marriage records and census records in KY (where he is listed along with his wife as being 20-30 years old in the 1830 census) are documented.
Frederick m. Agnes is a completely different line in West Virginia. His son Frederick born 1811 (note he would have been <20 yrs old in 1830) is a fourth Frederick. I do not have a place of residence for this fourth Frederick.
Frederick m. Liddy is the son of William Trent and Susannah Bryant and Nancy's sister. Carolyn Stewart in another message to this forum late last year addressed some of the details surrounding him and the evidence that he is not the same person or the father of the Frederick who married Agnes.
Carolyn's post ran:
"here were two Frederick Trents in Tazewell Co, VA for a short period of time. The Frederick Trent, son of William Trent and Sarah Bryant Trent, married Ellizabeth/Liddy ?, as one deed of 1807; p245-6 has land sold by John Newton Harmon to Frederick Trent and wife Elizabeth. (Liddy is a variation of Elizabeth) then on 1807 another deed says Frederick Trent and wife Liddy...1808, another says "wife Leddy". Lydia is also witness in other transactions for her brother-in-law, John Trent. Frederick and Lydia had a daughter Sinea who married David Christian, son of Thomas & Louisa Christian. One record names her Linny Christian....(don't you wish they didn't mess around with names) Some other possible children's names for Frederick are: Frederick jr, Mary and Chloe but I have no good proof for these at this time. If someone else has this info please share."
Additional information on Frederick m. Lydia from Barbara Marsh:
