Louis Alexander in his marriage certificate says his fathers name was Peter Tremble.


As I have heard from the mouth of Aunt Bess, Louis Alexander's Sister and others, near London Canada was a family named Green. They had a boarder who's name was Peter Tremble. He was a young man at the time and when the Green's baby, Mary, was born he said when she was old enough he was going to marry her. At age 10 he married her and 1 year later Theophyllus Tremble was born. To this union a total of 22 children were born of which they raised 16. I don't know all their names. Todd was the oldest, John, Lillie, Pompadour, Josephine, Louis Alexander and Bessie. Mary Green Tremble died having her last child Bessie.

We get his name from Bessies marriage applications. Per Jim Trimble In the 1850 and 1860 Cazey, Clinton Co. NY. census, there is a Theophilus Trombly listed. In the 1870 Mass. census, there is also a Theophilus Trombly listed. These are the only 3, I have been able to find any info on.
