We are decendents of John Trout who married A Mary Trout in Brown/Clermont Co. 1820, 2nd marriage for both. The tradition says: A woman with 8 children married a man with 8 children and had 8 children. We can verify all of the Trout children, but none of Mary's children. Then to cloud things further is Lamkin Mary's maiden name or 1st marriage name? We need to establish Lamkin before we can move on. Two names come up concerning Mary, but I can't seem to make a connection, They are Prosper Lamkin and Captain Phaltan Lamkin. Any help greatly appreciated.
