This is the twentieth in a series about Maryland families. This work begins with a map of the Third, or Medley, Election District of Montgomery County, as it appeared about the time of the census of 1880. The map shows local villages, a few geological points of reference, and the general locations of the residences of members of the family who comprise this study. The first and largest chapter is devoted to the Trundle families. The eight allied families of Hempstone, Dade, Fletchall, Arnold, Sellman, Appleby, Brewer, and Dickerson are each treated in their own separate chapters. Each chapter begins with a short narrative about the family patriarch, and includes some or all of the following genealogical information on the descendants: names, dates of birth and death, spouses and children, occupations, burial place, military service and other available data. All of these families are related by marriage in some way (close or remote), and often in more than one generation. A full-name index adds to the value of this essential resource for anyone researching Trundle family roots.
