BIOGRAPHY: Portrait and biographical album of Greene and Clark Counties, Ohio: 1890, pp. 146-147, FHL #977.1 D3port. Abstract: Nimrod Trollinger is the owner and occupant of a farm which is probably not surpassed by any of equal extent in Greene County, and certainly by none in Bath Township. . . . Mr. Trollinger is of German descent in the paternal line, his grandfather, Jacob Trollinger, having been born in the Fatherland. Upon emigrating to America he located in Alleghany (sic) County, Md., where he operated a farm and also ran a stillhouse. He died there after having reached a comfortable financial standing. His son Jacob was born in that county and followed farming successfully until seriously afflected by the asthma, by which he was incapacitated from labor for forty years. In 1853 he accompanied his son, our subject, to Ohio, residing with him until his death in 1868 . . . The mother of our subject was in her maidenhood Miss Sarah Jacobs. She was born in Allegany County, Md., to which her father, Jacob Jacobs, had accompanied his parents when quite small, New Jersey having been his native State. . . . Mrs. Sarah Trollinger died in her native State, leaving six children of the nine whom she had borne. The first-born was Emily, Mrs. Jacobs, who died in Miami Township, Greene County; the next in order of birth is our subject; Drusilla resides in Darke County; Mrs. Mary Duckworth lives in West Virginia; Mrs. Sarah Mosier lives in Mad River Township, Clark County; Christina, Mrs. Funderburg, lives in Darke County. Nimrod Trollinger was born near Barton, Allegany County, Md., August 12, 1827, and reared on a farm . . . In May, 1853, young Trollinger came to Ohio, and made his arrangements for the purchase of property in Bath Township, Greene county. In Aug he made a payment after which he returned to the East and near his former home was united in marriage to Miss Martha Shaw, the ceremony taking place Sept 15. . . Mrs. Trollinger was born in Barton, Md., May 31, 1831, . . . Mrs. Trollinger is a granddaughter of William Shaw, a native of Merrie England, who came to Maryland alone when a boy . . . His son Henry was born in Allegany County, Md., . . . His wife was Sydney Thompson, a native of Loudoun County, VA; she died in West Virginia. . . . The family of Nimrod Trollinger and his estimable wife comprises nine children of whom we note the following: Sarah married Frank Batdorf, whose home is near Fairfield; Jane became the wife of Martin Paxton, who owns a farm in Indiana; Elizabeth is still with her parents; Emma married C. Horner, of Beaver Creek; James lives on his father's farm of thirty three acres, Julia married James C. Wolf, whose home is near Byron; Annie married Howard Flatter, who lives in Miami Township; the next on the family roll are the twin sons [Jacob and John - mentioned earlier] who carry on the home farm; Charles died when a babe. . . .
