bullet  General Notes:

Troutman Families Of Kentucky
by Evelyn Crady Adams of the twelve famous justices of Frederick County who repudiated the British Stamp Act in 1765. The citizenry dramatically supported the Court's daring decision by burning the stamp collector in effigy and conducting a mock funeral for the Act. The inscription on the casket read, "The Stamp Act expired of a mortal wound received from the genius of Liberty in Frederick County, November 22, 1765, aged 221 days." A bronze plaque bearing the names of the twelve recalcitrant judges and commemorating their noble action now occupies a place of honor in the Frederick County courthouse. The Bainbridge name has been frequently used as a Christian name by Joanna's descendants.


Peter married Ruth White in Jan 1760. (Ruth White was born on 28 Feb 1738-1739 in Frederick County, Maryland and died on 5 Nov 1807 in Fayette County, Kentucky.)
