Names are often off by a few years on census records, so it's not impossible
that the William listed here as 19 is actually the William H. you're asking
about. It could be that William deducted a few years from his age when he
married a girl who was 10 or 11 years younger than he was. However, it's
possible there were two William H. Trent's in the area. One William H.
Trent married Elizabeth McMillin in neighboring Alexander County on
5/11/1854.

See the Trent guardianship records at:
http://www.iltrails.org/union/guardianships_P.htm
The way records are presented at this site is a bit confusing, but here's
what I think these are saying:

William H. Trent died in 1897 leaving a daughter Daisy M. Trent, who was
born 17 Apr 1883, and Alexander W. Sims was appointed her guardian.

Gilbert G. Trent was born 16 Feb 1847. Possibly his father, Stephen, died
in 1866 and his brother William was appointed guardian. I don't believe
either William or Stephen were soldiers, but the name Gilbert does show up
as an Illinois soldier.

Gilbert Trent, recruit, Anna, Jan 20, 1864, mustered out Dec 16, 1865
Union Co probate records would probably tell exactly when both Stephen and
William died.

Couldn't find anything on Eleanor J. Trent. (I suspect she was called
"Ellie" and the 1880 census taker figured her named was Ella.)
