Welcome to my family home page. I am a descendant of Andrius (Andreas) Trumbo through George, Ephraim, Andrew, Cammillus, Isaac, Oscar, and Donald Trumbo Sr. Genealogy research is a daily learning experience for me. I am not a professsional genealogist. I try as much as possible to confirm my information. I will be glad to share any information I have. And finally, thank you to all those that have sent me information and assisted me in the past. I hope you enjoy.
Note: FamilyTreeMaker only allows me to upload 2000 people to this web site. For this reason I have not uploaded in a while because it is hard to decide which individuals to leave off. I have one large family tree file. I am updating information on a daily basis so feel free to email me if you have interest in a particular individual or family in my file. I may have more information.
----TRUMBO LINE: I am trying to prove the origin of the Trumbo name. Some of the variations and possibilities I have found are Trumbeau, Trumbohr, Trumeau, Trum Von Trumbach, Trumph, Trumbourger, Trimbach, Trumbach, Trombauer, Trumpour, Trumpor, Trumpboor, and Drumbore. My line of Trumbo's eventually ended up in Illinois around 1847. Their travels included Germany> France> New York> Virginia > West Virginia > Lawrence and Scioto Counties in Ohio > and finally Massac County, Illinois.
----ADAMS LINE: The ADAMS line I am researching came from GEORGEHAM Parish, DEVONSHIRE, England. My gggreat grandparents were William Gaskins ADAMS (b. abt. 1795) and Mary Ann TUCKER (b. 1810) His family, came from England about 1847 and lived in Crawford County Illinois for a few years then moved to Sullivan County, INDIANA. William Adams and most of his children and grandchildren are burried in Sullivan County, Illinois. My great grandfather Henry Adams later moved to Marion County, Illinois.
----WATKINS LINE: I am trying to find information on Watkins that lived in Shelby and Marion counties in Illinois. This family may have came from Wilson County, TN along with the HOPKINS family. My Watkins family could also have been spelled "WADKINS."
----CRANE/DAUGHERTY LINE: I have recently started researching my wife's family which includes the following surnames: CRANE, GORDON, FERGERSON, DAUGHTERTY, ERNSTBERGER, and WHITWORTH. Her family came from Dexter, Calloway County, Kentucky. If you have any information on this family I would love to hear from you.
----RETHERD LINE: This is my grandmother's line (Effie May Rethard Trumbo. I am also starting persue this line of Rethards from Illinois.
