Desendents of Balthazar TROUT, Sr., born circa 1740

Updated August 17, 2006

My research is for Balthazar TROUT, Sr., born circa 1740, in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA, married Eva MOSER 18 Dec 1763, New Hanover Twp, Montgomery, PA. He died after April 1783, Colebrookdale Twp, Berks, PA, where he filed his last will and testament in 1782. Colebrookdale and New Hanover townships adjoin, so Balthesar (alternate spellings include Balthazar, Baltheser, etc.) lived in Colebookdale Twp, but attended church in close-by Hanover Twp, where many of his children were baptized. Research Update 04/13/06: Based on a perfect 12/12 match, DNA test results have now proven that Balthazar TROUT, Sr. of Colebrookdale Twp, Berks, PA descends from or is directly related to the TRAUT Brethren of Germantown, Philadelphia, PA. Traditional research had previously proven (02/18/06) that Line John Trout (b. ABT 1769) and Abraham TROUT of Turbo Twp, Northumberland, PA were the sons of Balthasar TROUT, Sr. of Colebrookdale Twp, Berks, PA. That is to say, we now have proven that John Trout 1802-1841 descends from Abraham TROUT of Turbo Twp, which in turn descends from the TRAUT Brethren of Germantown. Research Update 04/19/06 DNA testing has now also proven that Jacob TROUT, Sr. of Earl Twp, Berks, PA is directly related to Balthazar TROUT, Sr. of Colebrookdale Twp, Berks, PA, with both being directly related to The TRAUT Brethren.
