Do you know of Trident ???

This page is an orphan - a placeholder until we can discover more about Trident. When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope that we'll discover more information in the future. Such is the case with Trident.

We found mention of Trident as a community (see Mentions and References below), but haven't been able to determine its location - other than being located somewhere in Hopkins County, Kentucky.

This entry could have originated in error. It might be that a source had a misprint, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. Many of the documents we reference are from the 1800s and the early 1900s, with some easier to read than others.
