JAMES A. TRIMBLE, eldest son of Isaac and Jane Trimble, was born November 14, 1834, in Livingston County, Ky., where he still resides. He was reared on a farm, and remained on the home place until 1852, when he joined a company made up in Livingston and Crittenden Counties, with which he went to California for the purpose of mining. Like many others, Mr. Trimble returned, after an absence of three years, poorer in pocket than when he went, but rich in a varied experience. Upon his return to his native State in 1855, he commenced farming in Livingston County, on the farm where he now lives, and which has been his home for a period of thirty years. Mr. Trimble is an active go-ahead citizen, and a successful farmer and stock raiser. He has been twice married; the first time, on the 29th of October, 1856; to Eliza, daughter of Joseph and Polly Davis, of Ballard County, Ky. The following children were born to this marriage: David E. (deceased), Mary A., Iola, wife of William Rhodes; Isaac N., William J., Belle, James R., Barren F. and Carlton. Mrs. Trimble died in January, 1876, aged forty-two years. Mr. Trimble was afterward married to Maria Young, daughter of Frank Young, of CaldwellCounty, Ky. One child is the fruit of this union, namely, Kate E. Mr.Trimble is a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, belonging to the Carrsville congregation, and in politics votes with the Democratic party.
