I am looking for the parents of William Warren Trumble who lived in Riley county part of his life. The attached obituary contains pertinent information.

William Warren Trumble was born in Orangeville, New York, November 11, 1839, and died at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, November 6, 1919, lacking but five days of being eighty years of age. He spent his boyhood days in New York state, but came west when Kansas was young and home steaded near Marysville. He spent the most of his life in this state, leaving here about four years ago to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Agnes Gilbert of Stillwater, Oklahoma. In 1860 he was united in marriage with Miss Ellen Butler. To them were born eleven children eight of whom survive him, viz: Mrs. Lizzie Ryhnbolt, Mrs. Lee Stanford, Mrs. John Parks and C.G. Trumble of Greenleaf, Kansas; Mrs. Agnes Gilbert of Stillwater, Oklahoma, Mrs. Geo. Park of Solomon Kansas, Mrs. Minnie Cook of Beatrice, Nebraska, and Mrs. Ellen Graves of Fort Sill, Oklahoma. There are also thirty-two grand children and thirteen great grand children. There are two sisters and one brother, Mrs. Chas. Barthow of Marysville, Mrs. John Prettyman and Quince Trumble of Tacoma, Washington. The good wife and mother passed away nearly five years ago. His long life closed without a struggle. He went out like a sleep. He told his children that he had made peace with God and was anxious to go. He had been very lonely since the departure of the companion with whom he had lived for nearly fifty years and who had for several years been a cripple. There will be a uniting now. Here in an inn a stranger dwelt, here joy and grief by turns he felt; poor dwelling, now we close the door, the task is oÕer, the sojourned returns no more. The funeral services were held on Monday, November 10, 1919, at the Methodist Espiscopal church conducted by Rev. C. Cray Jones. Burial was made at Mt. James cemetery. The family has the sympathy of the community.
