If you could identify where your connection to the Trogdon family tree begins and the maiden name of person who married a Trogdon it would be helpful in helping you!
Timothy M. Trogdon (me) 1958 Barberton, Oh - living Donald C. Trogdon 1932 Rittman, Ohio-2000 Sidney Trogdon 1906 Wayne, WV-1986 Pharoah Trogdon (first name changed slightly or used middle name possible altered because had 12 children - he was very busy!)1884 Wayne, WV-1928 Wayne WV William J. Trogdon 1845 Russel, Russel County Virginia-1867 death date uncertain - 22 years old when married ?? Elijah D. Trogdon 1818 Randolph NC-1898 Virginia Uriah Trogdon 1790 unk-1811 unk Samuel Trogdon 1751 North Carolina- 1834 N.C. William Trogdon or Troughton (Family Patriarch established land holdings near Ashville NC & slave owner, changed name in USA from Troughton) Ulverstone, England- 1805 Franklinsville, Randolph County, NC Francis Troughton 1695 Ulverstone, England-married 1722 in Ulverstone - death date ??? uncertain William Troughton 1660 Ulverstone, England date of death ??? uncertain
Geography beginning with me and working back - Ohio 3 generations, West Virginia 3 generations, Virginia 2 generations, North Carolina 4 generations, Ulverstone England 3 generations and connections are lost - a record in a church traces to the 1400s to a Lady Ann Troughton!! Trogdons or Troughtons have a "Coat of Arms".
Hope this was interesting at least if not helpful oh - my heritage is English, Irish, Scottish, Whales and from my mothers lineage I get the German (stubborn) influence. Tim Trogdon
Hi, thank you for the kind reply. I just sent all morning establishing my family history back to William in North Carolina who changed spelling of name after coming from England. I have a lady Ann Troughdon in England going back to 1400 or 1500s but of course 5 to six generations are missing because of record keeping in that period.
I'm on my way to library (use printer there) to print about all my work there - I will send you a new post showing my connections back to William - maybe you can let me know which Trogdon we branch off from each other from. there are a lot Irish, Scotts, and Whales in the line besides English - now my mom's side has thrown her German in the mix - yikes a stubborn Trogdon - that is all we need!! Take care.
Tim - A toast to the industious nature of William in the new world!
