I am searching for information on the family of Edward N Trail, father of Allen J Trail, a doctor in the area. This family is on the 1860 census next to the family of Ebenezer Wood, who married Mary Trail. They also in DeKalb County census 1880, when Allen J Trail is 20 years old.
Looking about in this forum, there seems to be several Edward N Trails, only one is mentioned concerning Tennessee.
Possibly, this Edward N Trail had two wives, first: Jane R Durham and second: Sarah E Lassiter.
I am searching for the parents of Mary Trail, who married Ebenezer Wood, and believe this Edward to be her brother. Judge James Allen Wood, in his book, Life on a Warren Country Farm, 1906-1923, identifies Dr Allen J Trail as "a cousin". Judge Wood was born in Warren County, TN.
