Weekly Puzzle - 1800 Vermont

In 1800 in Ferrisburgh, Addison, Vermont we find Samuel Trindle and most likely his two sons Samuel and Gideon.  Samuel records are a dime a dozen, but I have found only one other record with a Gideon Trindle.

1870 TRINDLE GIDEON D. Walnut Township, Butler County KS - Gideon was born about 1844 in Vermont.  There must be a connection to the first Gideon bn abt 1770 living in Vermont in 1800, but what is it?  Does anyone have any clues?

Is this another case of misspelling?  Some suggest that the 1870 census is Prindle.  Look closely.  What do you think?

Weekly Puzzle - Murder

 On 15 Nov1899 The Janesville, Wisconsin Daily Gazette reported the murder of Charles Trindle by Len Scofield of Token Creek.

Or....did they....directly under the original article is a second and the victim is listed as Charles Prindle.  Does anyone know?  If this is Charles Trindle, who are his parents?  Did he have a family?

It is confusing enough when indexes get a name wrong, but here we have the original newspaper with both Trindle and Prindle.

Can anyone help?
