James Trainer, b PA [where?] and his wife Mary, b NJ [someone on another geneal. website said her name was Patterson.Proof?] show up on the censusus of Meigs County, Columbia Twp, from 1850 through 1870.On the 1860, they are listed as TRANNER.I am researching details of the lives of one of their grandsons, Darius Trainer, who married Martha Westfall of Meigs County,They spent most of their married life in Vinton County.Darius was the son of Mathew Trainer, one of the sons of James and Mary.
Another Trainer who shows up in my family tree is Mary Trainer, who married George Gealy McClain of either Meigs or Vinton County [I forget which.]George was the brother of Cordelia McClain, who married Zachariah Westfall and was the mother of the Martha Westfall who married Darius Trainer.Who is this Mary?Could she be the older sister of Mathew, child of James and Mary Trainer?
