(probate) in Scott Co, KY, at approximately 49 years of age.

Agnes was the executor of John Trotter's estate October 17, 1794 in Scott Co, KY. In 1800 Agnes's name was on a
tax roll in Scott Co, KY. Agnes (Trotter) wrote her will December 19, 1822 in Jefferson Co, IN.(1) She made a will December 19, 1822 in Jefferson Co, IN.

Jane3 Trotter (#9762).
Joseph Trotter (#9765) was born probably before 1773. He married Jane Carmichael

Mary Trotter (#9706) was born probably before 1774. She married Mr. Alexander. (Mr.
Alexander is #9707.) Mr. Alexander was born probably before 1774.
The author suspects this man may be Elder James Alexander of Jefferson Co. IN, whose wife is yet unidentified, but who had children named John,
Agnes, and Polly. There was a James Alexander in Fayette County, and he dwelt where Agnes Trotter passed away.
The only likely
competitor is a William Alexander who was in early Fayette County, Kentucky, as well as William Alexander who was the same age as James in the 1820 census of Jefferson County, Indiana. None of
William's family members have been named, and it must be noted that no wife was evident in the 1820 census, prior to the mention of Mary
Alexander in the 1822 will of her mother.
In John Trotter's will written February 1, 1794 in Scott Co, KY, Mary Trotter was named as his daughter. In
Agnes (Trotter)'s will written December 19, 1822 in Jefferson Co, IN, Mary Trotter was named as her daughter.
If she was indeed the wife of Elder James Alexander of Jefferson County, Indiana, it is evident in his will that
she predeceased his passing in 1843.

IL, at 62 years of age.
Robert Moore Trotter (#9760) was born in Orange Co, VA about 1782. He married
Sarah Sebree. (Sarah Sebree is #9761.) Sarah was born about 1782 (if same age as spouse).
Robert settled as the third person within the city limits in Madison, Jefferson Co, IN after May 10, 1808.
