Sunday's Stories, 52 Ancestor Weeks, Week # 28, Cynthiann (Nee Riddle) Trumbo

Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

This is week 28 of my participation Amy Johnson Crow's, once a week challenge to blog about one ancestor a week, tell their story, biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on that one ancestor. More about the challenge can be found at her Blog, No Story Too Small.

Cynthia Ann (nee Riddle) Trumbo was born on December 21, 1827 in Brocks Gap, Rockingham County, Virginia to John H. Riddle and his wife Sarah (nee Byrd) Riddle.

On May 18, 1847 she married Benjamin Trumbo in Rockingham County, Virginia.

Marriage bond, courtesy of Alva Trumbo Wood (deceased), from her work "Benjamin Trumbo of Brocks Gap, VA", published 2002, at Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Cynthia and Benjamin had 7 children:  Zachariah Z., Sarah Elizabeth, Aurilla Ann, Fayette "Layfayette" Franklin, Dorothy Ella "Ella", John Riddle, and Cynthia Ann Rebecca.

This family record, again, courtesy of Alva Trumbo Wood (deceased), was reported to be in Cynthiann's handwriting. Copied from page 118 of the Benjamin Trumbo work cited above.  Copy of the work in the possession of CABS.  Only the first son Zachariah's birth is recorded.

Cynthia died on September 25, 1865 (Record digitally edited for my data base and this post.  Facts, not altered.)

Cynthia was buried at the Trumbo Family Cemetery at Fulks Run, Rockingham County, Virginia:

Wish list for Cynthiann:  Transcribe the above Family Record and a few other documents I have copies of.
