The Tremble - Sawyer Families
In Memory of my Sister
|The family history in this
web site begins with Hiram Milton Tremble
(1808-1881) and Sarah Sawyer Tremble
(1815-1878) - pioneer family of Coles County, Illinois. According
to Coles County marriage records, Hiram and Sarah were
married there on 14 March 1833. Hiram purchased 40 acres in Coles County
for $1.25/acres on June 14, 1833. This was a second marriage for
Hiram whose first wife, Mary Jackson, died in Shelby County, IL in
1832. Hiram had four children with Mary and eleven with Sarah.
The family resided in Coles County until the Fall of 1886 when Charles J. (b. 1849) and Martha Ellen (Jones) Tremble packed up their family and headed for California, probably via the railroad, arriving approx. Sept. 3, 1886, according to the obituary of their son, Elmer Tremble (Sept 3 was his birthday).

Photo Left: Charles J. and Martha Ellen (Jones) Tremble. Photo taken in Los Angeles, CA about 1900. The portrait on the wall in the background is believed to be Charles' father, Hiram Milton Tremble. They were among several members of the Tremble family who went to California and other parts west in the late 1800s. Many thanks to Marjorie Deniston for providing the picture.
