You are fortunate because my husband is from that Nathan Trail by his first marriage to Sarah "Fanny" Stottlemyer in 1866.So I've been looking at the information about him from afar (we live in NY state) and also in two visits down in MD at Piney Plains.We also found his house on Trail road and talked to a man who remembered him from his youth.Fanny's dates are 5 Feb 1842 - 16 Mar 1893.She is buried in Piney Plains Methodist Church Cemetery.We were told that Nathan about 1929 and was buried up on the ridge above that valley where several Trail families lived.We looked up there but the land had been recently sold and was being reclaimed for some other use, so did not find any stones.My husband's mother told of going down to MD for his funeral.
Nathan had a second wife.Mary Ann Cole found that Ella Ranck married Nathan 26 Feb 1895 in Fulton Co., PA. She died before 1900.
I had the name of Rebecca as his third housekeeper/wife with the grave information that she was born 21 Jun 1865 and died 6 Jan 1925.Her grave is in the Piney Plains Methodist Church Cemetery, but in a different place from Nathan's brother Hugh (and wife) and Nathan's first wife Fanny. The stone said Rebecca Norris wife of Nathan Trail.In the 1920 census Rebecca had a daughter Annabell Norris, 19, so I thought that Norris was probably Rebecca's first husband's name, and Annabel her youngest child. I did not know Joseph's name.Or about Annabel's marriage, etc.
I am glad for more information on these people.Thanks!If you want to share or find out more information on the line back to David Trail of Prince George's Co. email me at email@example.com.--Gail
