Ralph Barnard Trousdale was my second cousin twice removed. We both descend from Henry Lewer Sanders, who is the first of my line of Sanders to immigrate to the United States.

Ralph was born on 25-Jan-1876 in Brooklyn, Kings, New York, USA. He was the son of James Barnard Trousdale and Mary Barbara Valdivia. Mary was the daughter of Rafael Joseph Valdivia and Frances Augusta Sanders. Frances was the daughter of Henry Lewer Sanders and Barbara Anne Warwick.

Ralph married Anna Louise Hayward on 27-Jan-1904 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois (my Illinois Connection). Ralph and Anna had at least two children James and Louise. Ralph died on 09-Sep-1933 in Garden City, Nassau, New York. He was only 57 at the time of his death.
