Elizabeth MANN
WARNING:  this family group sheet is hypothetical (a first draft).  I've assembled data that probably pertain to this David TRIMBLE, but I have no proof that they do.  In particular, I have no proof that the David TRIMBLE who married Mary Ann WASSON is the same David TRIMBLE who married Elizabeth MANN or the same man who shows up in the 1850 Census; the evidence is entirely circumstantial.  The division of the children between Mary and Elizabeth is hypothetical.  It is based merely on the fact that the largest gap between any two children (five years) is between Sarah and her older sister.

There are a great many MANNs in Nicholas Co.  It wouldn't be unreasonable that this David TRIMBLE is our subject.

Mary Jane (TRIMBLE) DARNELL is a daughter of David & Elizabeth TRIMBLE.  The biggest gap in the ages of the children is the five years between Sarah E. and her older sister.  I'm taking that to be the dividing line between Mary Ann WASSON's children and Elizabeth MANN's children.
