Looking for Trail Family Info
Posted by: Matthew Trail (ID *****5575) Date: April 14, 2008 at 14:26:57

I am looking for information about the Trail family and seem to have come to the right place. As far as I can tell, my 3x-great grandfather was named William E. Trail (or possibly William H.) from Montgomery County, MD. I believe he was born around 1816 and married Eliza E. Trail. He had a son born about 1861 named John E. Trail, who relocated to Granite, MD just outside of Baltimore towards the end of the 19th century. This is the line that I descend from. Unfortunately, many of my relatives have passed away leaving me with little known history of the family beyond a generation or two. I have also read that the Trails originally hail from Scotland, but I am at a loss trying to place my line in the family tree. Does anyone know where this branch fits in the Trail family tree? Any information you have is most appreciated.

Thank you.
