Did this work out?

  Friday, January 16, 1903  

Kalamazoo Gazette (Michigan) 


Josephine (St. John) was the wife of Alexander Trindle, the son of Alexander and Delitha Austell, grandson of Alexander and Sarah Crockett.

It is interesting that this plan was concocted in the beginning of 1903, Alexander was still alive, he died in October of that year in Boise, Idaho.  

Did the plan fail and they moved on to Boise?  Did he go on his own?

Josephine was probably in Malibu, California by 1910.  There is a Mrs. Trindell that would fit and I haven't found her elsewhere.  She did die in Los Angeles County CA in 1935.

I would love to know if the plan worked.

Gregory Carl Trindle

27 Nov 1949 - 12 Apr 2015

12 Mar 2015
A native of Sacramento, Greg was a graduate of El Camino High School, American River College, and Sacramento State University.  He moved to Redwood City in 1972 when he was hired by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.  Over his thirty-six year career he worked in every corner of the county, spent nearly twenty years with the SWAT team and rose through the ranks to Asst. Sheriff.

Upon retiring in 2008, he enjoyed his new found leisure by traveling, fly fishing, hiking and playing with his five beautiful grandchildren Madison, Carissa and Daniston Carbullido and Alexis and Nicholas Mersch.

His two-month battle with pancreatic cancer was extremely short-lived but filled with stories, love and friendship, and vists and calls from family and friends both, old and new.  It was a time to treasure, and he made the best of it, as he always did.

Besides his grandchildren, Greg is survived by his wife of 44 years, Cath, and his two daughters, Jessica (Scott) Carbullido of Portland, OR and Andi (Eric) Mersh of San Francisco.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the San Mateo County Parks Foundation or California State Parks Foundation.

Chess board, pieces and checkers all created by Greg........

Monthly Puzzle - Albert Trindel

Found in the Duluth News-Tribune on Tuesday, 13 September 1910 ( (Duluth, MN vol 41 issue 132 p 5).  I haven't found an Albert anywhere near Minnesota in that time frame.  Any clues anyone?
