Trail Family

This is the Nonnie that I knew.
No matter what age her age,
this is the way she looked to me.

Back of photo says
Bazil Trail
about 20 years old

With the name spelt with a Z
it would make him the son of
William Martin Trail
But over the years there has developed a
problem with the spelling of Basil – Bazil.
So it is difficult to be sure which
Basil – Bazil is which.

Bazil is the one in the middle
Don’t know who the other boys are.

William Martin Trail and Wife Eldora (Mcgrew) Trail. My Great Great Grandparents.

    Hi Arvin
    I am sorry to say that I do not have a Duritha or a Solomon Trail in my files. The Basil Trails in my files are born 1805, 1893, and 1924. Perhaps a fellow researcher will have answers for both of us.
