My Dad, John S. Trail, Jr., and I started our journey together trying to discover our roots. We researched together for over 25 years until his death. Our Trails came from Maryland, through South Carolina, down to Texas. My Watsons came from Virginia, and the Hartleys from Kentucky. My husband's Lassus family came from Louisiana, and his Polizzi family came from Italy. They are merged here in Texas. All information is documented where possible but please understand some is shared information from undocumented sources. Corrections and additions are appreciated.
