Will it sounds like you have a lot more inforamtion regarding this matter then do I. I would love to hear what you think about the stories about a Samuel Trivett having served in the Revolutionary war. What do you have regarding The widow? Do youhave any ideas on how we could, as a family find out the facts? Do you think it is a family legend and not family history or fact? I would love to get everyone's in put on this matter, because like I have said before: This is the stopping point for most of us. The family history outline that I have come up with is as follows: The Trivetts started in Normandy moved on to England around 1040 A.D. Was located in Somerset County england intil around 1647 when they moved to the North Shore area of Mass. I had believed that this Samuel Trivett may have be born in Mass. and had stated travelingsouthward in the mid 1700s served in the war and some time after his death his widow and two sons John and Richard Trivett travel to N.C. (my line) Samuel Trivett settled in western N.C. Unice Trivett and two children (out of weddlock)(father was most like a Mcguire)her son William Grant Trivett had Dan Trivett who had William Earl Trivett (my father)
We all want to get as far back as we can, so let us put our ideas together, and find the facts regarding this great family of our.
