Re: Samuel S. Train, b. 1841 New York to Oregon
Tony- Have you discovered any more information about Samuel Train? He is most likely descended from John Train/Traine/Tran of Watertown, Mass. as I believe all Train individuals before 1850 descend from John. There are several earlier Samuel Train's from whom he may be descended:
Samuel T* b, 22 Dec 1711, at Watertown, m. (1) Mary Holden.
Samuel T* m. (2) Rachel Allen. They had 9 children incl.
Samuel T* b. 11 Aug 1745 at Weston, m. Deborah Savage. They had 5 children incl.
Samuel T* b. 29 Jun 1785, m. Harriet Seaverns. They are of Weston. They had at least Harriet Train b. 1813 and d. 1815 at Weston. Beyond that I have not researched. Might be a possibility. Do you have any other information on surname TRAIN? I am in the process of compiling a genealogy for publication, THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHN TRAIN OF WATERTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS.
