James? TRIMBLE
Ms. __?__
WARNING:  This page is very much under construction.  Consider it a working hypothesis.  In particular, I have no proof that the James TRIMBLE in Cecil Co., MD, in 1790, is our subject.
Husband:  James? TRIMBLE
Birth:  bef. 1745, Ireland
Death:  KY?
Military Service:  Revolutionary War
Religion:  Catholic
Marriage:
Wife:  Ms. __?__
Children:
1.  James TRIMBLE, b. bef. 1766 
2.  (Son A) TRIMBLE, b. bef. 1774
3.  (Son B) TRIMBLE, b. 1774-1790
4.  (Daughter A) TRIMBLE, b. bef. 1790; m. Mr. MATNEY?
5.  (Daughter B) TRIMBLE, b. bef. 1790
6.  (Daughter C) TRIMBLE, b. bef. 1790
7.  William James TRIMBLE, b. 16 Nov 1776; d. 5 Jan 1844; m. Amelia WELLS 
8.  Ann TRIMBLE, b. ca. 1778 
9.  Mary TRIMBLE, b. ca. 1779 [said to be born in KY, but 1779 is very early to be in KY] 

Son James married a HINTON, and the HINTONS were intermarrying with the MATTINGLYs.  I'll bet the unnamed daughter married a MATTINGLY.

1.  Letter from Eliza Trimble to Winifred Markee Miles, 1906.  Eliza was the daughter-in-law of Joseph Trimble, son of James and Sarah (Hinton), relating family history as told to her by her husband.  Eliza's statement that Joseph's grandfather, James? (Sr.?), married after the Revolutionary War cannot be correct because according to the 1810 and 1820 censuses, the James (Jr.?) who married Sarah Hinton was born bef. 1765.  One wonders if James? (Sr.?), the immigrant and revolutionary, isn't the same man as the one who married Sarah Hinton as a second, younger wife.  Yet, how could Eliza's husband be that wrong about his own grandfather?  Then again, the letter-writer is Joseph's daughter-in-law, not Joseph himself, and she's 90 years of age.  Memories do fade.  (If anyone knows which of James and Sarah's sons was married to Eliza, please share this information.) 

2a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):
1790 Trimble, James MD Cecil Co. p. 42 03-02-06-00-00
These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
3 free white males 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = James (b. bef. 1745)
= James Jr. (b. bef. 1765)
= Son A
2 free white males 15 or under 1774-1790 = Son B
= William (b. 1776)
6 free white males all ages in or bef. 1790 = Wife
= Daughter A
= Daughter B
= Daughter C
= Ann (b. c1778)
= Mary (b. c1779)
Could this James be our subject, the immigrant from Ireland?

2b.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):
1790 Trimbel, James MD Baltimore Co. p. 28 01-03-03-00-00
These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 free white males 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = James (b. bef. 1745)
3 free white males 15 or under 1774-1790 = Son A

= William (b. 1776)
3 free white females all ages in or bef. 1790 = Wife
= Daughter A
= Ann (b. c1778)

Could this James be our subject, the immigrant from Ireland?

3.  Anon.  1991.  The 1795 Census of Kentucky [as constructed from tax lists].  T.L.C. Genealogy, Miami Beach, FL.  On p. 178:
Name County
Trimble, James Bourbon
Trimble, James Woodford
Trumble, James Fayette
Are any of these our subject?  Or his son?  Neither?  Both?

4. Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312):
1800 Tax List KY Woodford Co. James Trimble
1800 Tax List KY Fleming Co. James Trimble
1800 Tax List KY Montgomery Co. James Tremble
Seems likely the one in Fleming Co. is our subject (or his son).  Other TRIMBLE's in Fleming Co. in 1800 were John and William.
