TROUT posted by Richard A. Moore on Friday, November 28, 1997

In my research on the Trout family from NJ>OH>KS I have come across a John Trout in Richland Twp in 1820 (p. 216); 1830 (p. 233); 1840 (p. 120).� Believe this entry to be the same person since the age seems to advance appropriately over the years.� I don't find any further entries for him in Belmont county.� Does anyone know where this John Trout came from?� My direct line is the Trouts in Brown co, OH (Peter, John, and Morris) who came out from Monmouth co, NJ but I would surely like to identify this Trout as he is very likely related.� I do have other information about the NJ Trouts in OH which I will be glad to share.
