Joseph Trindle in Wilmington, Ohio

The following newspaper articles do not link to any known family. All the articles take place within a three month period.  With no 1890 census the hope of finding them in census records is diminished.

Wilmington Journal 2 Nov 1887

Wilmington Journal 28 Dec 1887

Wilmington Journal 8 Jan 1888

Wilmington Journal 25 Jan 1888

Joseph Goodhue Trindle was born in 1864 in Ohio, but he is listed as single in records in 1900 and later. I didn't find any other likely candidates for either Joseph or Maude and no Gardner's that connect to the family in that time and place.

Who are they?

Cowardly Blow - Sam Trindle

The Indianapolis News - Tue 22 Dec 1896
 The news was carried to the Cincinnati Enquirer the next day where they called it a "Cowardly Blow"

Cincinnati Enquirer 23 Dec 1896

Samuel Trindle was most likely the son of John K Trindle.  He was born in 1870 in Ripley County, Indiana and died in Fort Wayne, IN in 1945.  Samuel married twice and had eleven children.

Does anyone have another suggestion for his ancestry?

A couple more Kansas city mysteries

The Kansas City Gazette (Kansas City, MO) 18 Mar  1892
Who is C.P. Trindle,  One possibility is Charles (F?) the son of Frederick Jacob Trindle was living in Cincinnati in 1891. I have not found any records after that date.

Kansas City Journal 7 Dec 1899
Who is S. Trindle?  Charles above had a brother Samuel, but he died back in Cincinnati in 1902.

Ideas, anyone??

Richard Trindall (Trinder / Trindle)

Elizabeth was not the only "Trindle" who was transported to Australia.   On 25 Aug 1815 Richard Trindall (this is the spelling that descendants use) was transported having been convicted at Oxford, Banbury Session of Peace on 23 April 1814.  Richard, a rope and twine maker, was 21 years old.  He arrived on the Fanny in January of 1816. 

State Records of New South Wales - Colonial Secretaries Index 1788-1825
OldMill65 shared the information on Ancestry that Richard Trinder was pardoned in 1823.

Richard Trindall (Trinder/Trindle) born about 1794 in Eynsham, Oxfordshire, England was the son of Richard and Sarah.  He supposedly married Mary Ann Adams (1809–1906) about 1828, however on source claims a wife Charlotte.  They lived in Maitland City, New South Wales, Australia and had at least ten children.  Different resources give different names and dates, so make sure you have documentation to prove any links to this family.
