Matilda Jane Hendershot Trigg

Matilda Jane Hendershot, born on June 5, 1840 in Washington Township, Belmont County, Ohio, daughter of Daniel Boone Hendershot and Mary Brewer Hendershot.

Apparently she did not use the name Matilda, but mostly went by her middle name, Jane.

Jane married Joseph Trigg, born 1835 in Belmont County, died between 1873 and 1880. Jane and Joseph were married on Dec 12 or 17, 1857 in Belmont County, OH.

They became the parents of at least four children including:

* Unnamed Trigg, child that died in 1860, buried at Pea Vine Cemetery (presumably this is their child)
* James Trigg, born in 1862, died Mar 24, 1897, according to the LDS familysource.org
* Marion Cecil Trigg, born Nov 21, 1874 in Armstrong Mills
* Aaron Trigg, born 1863 or 1864, mentioned in Jane's obituary

After Joseph's death, Jane married Isaac Vandyne, born 1838, on April 8, 1889 in Belmont Co., Oh. Jane died on May 21, 1921 in Bellaire, Ohio at age 80. She is buried in Peavine Cemetery in Armstrong Mills, Ohio.
