Sadly, many are out there stringing bad information together. You blame LDS “clues” but you need to realize a vast many who are doing this are not LDS even if they are using LDS provided tools.

The viewers were also led to believe that he did not pay his bills, and that his children were ordered by the court to be placed in the care of Sergeant Thomas Jeffrey because they had been abandoned by their father. Cindy Crawford was even unsure if she “liked” her ancestor (until later, when she got to England, and decided he was a very brave soldier so all “was forgiven”).

It is well documented…even in the Trowbridge Genealogy you handed to Cindy (see page 45)…that when Thomas Trowbridge left for England, he left his children, his lands, and his affairs in a trust for them, and left them in the care of a former servant, Henry Gibbons. It was HENRY GIBBONS who abandoned the children, and didn’t pay the bills. Thomas kept in constant contact (as much as you could back then) with his children. He was a part of their lives until he died, and some of his sons traveled to England to see him there later in life.

The reason the court turned the affairs and the children over to Sergeant Jeffrey was because of what their guardian HENRY did, not their father, Thomas. The court said the children were to remain with Sergeant Jeffrey until their father could return and get those bills paid that Henry didn’t pay. But (as the show correctly depicted) Thomas was unable to return due to the English Civil War, etc. The children later sued Henry Gibbons to try to get back the land that their father had left them. That court case went on for many, many years but they were eventually successful.

My children are descendants of Thomas Trowbridge. I really feel that you did them, and Cindy Crawford, a real disservice by editing the show in such a way that he seemed like a deadbeat dad who left his children in dire straits while he ran off to England looking for love. Next time, read the book you hand to the celebrity and do your research. Somewhere in those “1,000 hours” you lost site of the real man and left out the major reason those children were turned over to Sergeant Jeffery. Gosh, I hope you at least told Cindy the real truth later.

You should be able to see all videos without issue on tlc.com

After a career as a media celebrity I would think Cindy Crawford could vocalize reactions more articulate than “Oh Wow!” to the information the professionals are laying in her lap. The way the TLC program is edited is so redundant I feel the producers must think their audiences are morons. It wasn’t much better when it was at NBC, but at least they seemed to have a bigger budget for the presentation there. The Christine Applegate episode was the best this season because of the emotion she and her father felt about the revelations. The Crawford episode initially seemed to suggest that Cindy could get on the computer herself and do research but very quickly descended to the professionals bowing to her beck and call. Certainly this show is better than Duck Dynasty, but I would like them to stay more to the story values of the Applegate episode than what we seen in the Crawford or Zooey episodes.

I am white with black relatives (distant half cousins) due to branches of my family owning slaves in Virginia. We have well-documented family lines that go back to the 1600′s in Virginia, but other African Americans can not go back further than their grandparents, maybe their great-grand parents if they are lucky. Hitting brick walls is a frequent happening.

Would love to see details also. Am VERY curious how much guessing and jumping to conclusions is done on these trees.
