BROKEN BRANCHES

These are some (but not all) of the major 'Unplaced' Truax and Truex groups which we have been unable to connect to the rest of the family. Most have living descendants who would dearly love to trace their ancestry all the way back to Philippe du Trieux. If you think you can identify or provide further clues concerning these individuals, please contact Jennifer Smith at jsmith25@cogeco.ca. For smaller unplaced groups and queries from individual Association members, please see our Queries page.

Names are arranged alphabetically by first name, with groups of known siblings with an unknown father listed first.

Nelson Truax of Newark probably belongs here as well. In the 1840 census, James Truax is shown as a free colored person with three sons and three daughters, so it is possible that George W. is a brother rather than a son)

If so, could they both be sons of Jacob Truax (b. Apr. 16, 1751)? And is there any connection to the Isaac Truax who settled in Elizabethton after serving with the KRRNY? Also, could this be the John Truax of Chapter 29 (TTH) who lived in Watertown and Antwerp, NY and 'disappeared' after 1826?
