The Trimble Family

Five brothers, James, Moses, John, David and Alexander Trimble, came to America from Armagh, Ireland, in 1740. James and John settled in Augusta county, Virginia. James Trimble was a surveyor. He married Sarah Kersey and lived near Lexington, Va. He had six sons and four daughters. Jane, the oldest daughter, married Wm. McClure; Agnes married David Steele, ancestor of the Rockbridge family of that name; Sarah married Samuel Steele and removed to Tennessee; Rachel married James Carothers, who also went west. John Trimble, the brother of James, the surveyor, settled in Augusta on Middle River, about two miles from Churchville, eight from Staunton and five from Buffalo Gap. He married Mary Moffett, widow of John Moffett. His death occurred in 1764, having been killed by the Indians at the time of the second Kerr Massacre, when his only son, James was captured by the Indians and afterwards rescued by his half-brother, Capt. Geo. Moffett. John Trimble's widow and his brother James qualified as administrators in 1764. On the eighteenth of March, 1768, George Moffett qualified in the county court as the guardian of James Trimble orphan of John Trimble.
