Dear Don,
Angus B. Trest is the son of Samuel Capers Trest of Jones County, Mississippi. Angus B was born in 1862 and lived to be 104 years old. Samuel Capers was married to Eleander McGilvary in 1859. Samuel Capers was bron in Alabama in 1833. They had the following children: William John b. 1860; Angus B b. 1862; Sarah Elizabteh b. 1864 (my great grandmother); Joseph Alexander b. 1869; Colin Oliphant b. 1871; Samuel Albert, b. 1873; Richard/Richmond Felder b. 1875 and Norman Trest. Samuel Capers was in the 7th Battalion of the Mississippi Infantry, Company C. He was catpured three times. He was the son of John Trest of South Carolina. John was the son of John Trest who emigrated from Germany. He was a German sailor from the Hamburg district in Germany. He came to America in 1773. He married Rebecca Thorne and they settled in South Carolina. When their baby John was born and still a small child, the Inidans killed Rebecca. John was lost at sea and never heard from again. Little baby John was found by the McDonalds and they raised him. He marrieed Elizabeth Walters of Orangeburg, SC. They later moved to Alabama and then to Sandersville, MS, a Scotch settlement where the McDonalds had come come to live. Samuel Capers Trest was a school teacher at Ovett School in Jones County. After the Civil War, he was the first Sheriff in Jones County during Reconstruction. Angus, his son lived to be 104 years old. Angus married Nancy Walters in 1882. I do not know the children of Angus B. and Nancy Trest. This is something that you may find in or I do hope this helps you. I have other information on Samuel Capers Trest which would be your grandfather if you would be interested. He is alos my great great grandfather.
