Welcome to the Accidental Genealogists' Website

This site contains a wealth of genealogical information of particular interest to the Trimble and Yocum families of Mt. Sterling, Kentucky
...all obtained quite by accident in our quest to find John Prewitt Trimble, son of Perry and Amanda Yocum Trimble.

    The Accidental Genealogists -- Our Story.  This is a picture of my grandfather, John Prewitt Trimble, with my mother in about 1927.  Always a wanderer, JP moved his wife and little daughter from California to Minnesota to Montana to Washington state and back to California again over the next three years.  Not surprisingly, his next move was on his own...and he was seldom seen since.
