Have you recently posted on civilwarinteractive.com?If not you have a cousin who has. Do you know how the family got to KY from CT or more importantly why?
Do you know of the connection between Marshall and my ancestor Prudence Tryon (b. 1731) who married Joseph Churchill (b. 1734) ca. 1754 of Chatham Ct (now Portland).
The CT Tryons go back to William and 3 brothers (?) who immigrated ca. 1690. They are descended from Sir William Tryon a wealthy Dutch immigrant ca. 1590s to England who funded Puritan churches including one in Colchester where the Footes of Wethersfield were from. They bought up a large amount of land around Wethersfield.
Do you or anyone know if this same Dutch Tryons family were the ancestors of Gov. Sir Wm. Tryon who invaded CT during the Amer Rev--wasn't he the Gov of NY?
