Colonel John Trumbull
Colonel John Trumbull was born in The Governor Jonathan Trumbull House (pictured below) on West Town Street, owned and maintained by the Connecticut Daughters of the American Revolution. John Trumbull's father Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, Sr. inherited the house in 1755 upon the death of his father, and John's grandfather, Captain Joseph Trumble, Sr., Patriarch of the Trumble/Trumbull family of Lebanon, Connecticut (my ancestral grandfather). Captain Joseph Trumble, Sr. had the house built in 1735/40. The House originally stood on the corner of Town Street and the Colchester Road (Route 207), facing the Colchester Road. The Trumbull family store which later became the "War Office" stood on the West side of the house also facing the Colchester Road. The house was moved to its current location in 1824, and the War Office was moved twice, first in 1824, and again in 1844 to its present location, also on West Town Street.
