1-William Trindle (abt 1709-bef 20 Jan 1774)
+Margaret (maybe Cathay) (bef 1711-1770)

William is the patriarch of the main known family of  Pennsylvania, found in Cumberland County by 1740.  We know he was not alone.  When son John served on his first jury he is listed as John, Jr.  To date only sketchy details of the elder John have been found.  It seems possible that the Westmoreland families found on the puzzle page might link to John.
