Surnames: Truss, Forbes
Samuel Truss married Mary Forbes, daughter of John Forbes of Pitt Co., They were parents of Samuel Truss, Jr., Warren Truss and Joel Truss. Joel Truss was married before 1790 at which time he had 1 son and 2 daughters as shown on the 1790 census. His wife was Lydia __?. Does anyone know what her maiden name was and what happened to Joel and her ? The family was in Jefferson Co., Alabama by 1820, along with the families of Warren and Samuel, Jr. They were among the first settlers of "Trussville", Alabama.
It is not known whether Joel and Lydia died before or after moving to Alabama. Their son, James Truss was my gggrandfather, b 1799, but the 1790 census showed a son under 16 yrs. Did he marry and stay in Pitt Co., I have a lot of info. after they arrived in Alabama, but not much before. Would appreciate any help and many thanks in advance. Melba
