Weekly Puzzle - Jacob Trindle

One of the early records found in Franklin Co., PA is a tax record for Jacob Trindle in Guilford in 1786.  He is the only Trindle found in the area and to date has not been found in other records.

There are only two other Jacob Trindles found so far in US records.  One Jacob Justin Trindle (1850 IN - 1901 IA) was the son of Andrew Trindle and Mary DeHart.  There are many records documenting his life.

The other, Jacob S Trindle has been found in only one census record.   In 1920 he is living in Dublin, Pulaski, Virginia.  He is listed with his wife Sally and daughter Ruby.  Although supposedly born in Virginia about 1858, I did not find him in the 1860-1910 census records.

Who are the two "one record" Jacobs?  Are they really Trindles.  The images shown here definite read that way.  If so, why have no other records been found.  The records for Franklin county might not be online, a search through land records might help.  The Census for Virginia should have some mention of Jacob born 1858 though.  I've searched with with many variations of Trindle and also Trimble.  HELP WANTED!!
