The French And Indian War Again January 28, 2016

Filed under: Ancestors,French and Indian War,Genealogy — Janet @ 7:44 pm

I have found another ancestor who served in the French and Indian War, 1755-1762.  [See previous post re Benjamin Warner]  This is a step into what now feels like almost the immediate past.  When I was growing up I had a small piece of wood in one of my bureau drawers.  I think this was given to me by my father.  It was supposed to be a memento from the French and Indian War, which was fought about 200 years prior to my early history studies in the 1940’s.  I wonder whatever happened to that little piece of wood.  No name was attached to this little piece of wood – just that it was from that war.

I now have a name of another ancestor who served in that war – Alexander Trimble I, 1726-1785, my 4X Great Grandfather. He was a veteran also of the Revolutionary War He is buried in Crown Point New York on what was the Chilton Trimble Farm.
