Hello,

My partner is descended from  John Trail and Grizel Ritchie c.1741.  If you think you may have them in your tree, we would be interested to hear from you and to exchange information.

Hello fsmc:

It would appear that your partner and myself may be "relatives". How exciting.
I do have John Trail and Grizzel Ritchie in my tree.
They appear to be the mom and dad of William Trail who  married Jane (Jean) Ritchie.
They in turn (William and Jane) were the mom and dad of Alexander Trail who married Jane (Jean) Downie.
I believe Alexander and Jane were mom and dad to John Downie Trail (born 1838).
John Downie Trail and his wife Helen Robertson were mom and dad to Wilson Summers Trail born 1868.
Wilson married Isabel Allan and were mom and dad to John Downie Trail, my grandfather.
John Downie Trail married my grandmother, Edith Isabel Moon.
My grandmother and grandfather had 3 children, one being Wilson Summers Trail. My dad.
My maiden name is Trail.
Does your partner have the "Trail" name  There are a great number of Trails and it is very hard to sort it all out but I think I have it right, with a lot of help from the great people at RootsChat.
Would love to hear further from you.
Dianne

hi pal,

thank you so much for your pm.

i have looked for the summers connection and think it may go back to the helen robertson connection as there was no summers before hand.

have found that helen's parents were david robertson and ann edwards who married 30/4/1839.

will try and source more detail


Joe
helping wherever possible

I am new to this game. I want to know more about my grandfather, Alexander John Trail, born 18th July 1876. His father was John Downie Trail and mother Helen Robertson.

Do I have some distant relatives out there?

Thanks.

Iain

Hello I am related to John Downie Trail via his youngest brother Peter Sim Trail . It is good to know our family have grown and prospered over the years. John with his brother William joined the merchant navy on the 29 th May 1854. He was bound for 4 years to shipmaster Peter Sim on the vessel Wallace registered at Peterhead,prior to becoming a white fisher in Pitulli and Footdee. Helen and John had 3 other children Rachel, Alexander John and Maggie Jean. John Downie Trail died in 1916 and is buried in St Clements church yard Aberdeen.
