Captain Joshua Trickey (1802-1887)

The Trickey family of the early days were truly the embattled farmers of the Revolution,loyal and patriotic men, serving their country well. In the office of Wentworth Hall, is a fine oil painting of Captain Joshua Trickey. He was the first to entertain summer guests from abroad, and  this hotel was the outgrowth of his generous hospitality.

Captain Trickey was born in Jackson, October 25, 1802, and was the son of James and Mary (Burnham) Trickey. His parents had nine children, of whom he and his brother Samuel were the last survivors. He lived most of his life near Black mountain and he married Martha P., daughter of Colonel Jonathan and Alice(Pendexter) Meserve, in January 1826. She died Mar 29, 1881, aged 76.The children of Captain Joshua and Martha (Meserve) Trickey were: Alice and Mary (twins), Martha A.,(deceased), and Georgia A., who married General Marshall C. Wentworth.

One who knew him says of him: "He could have made a success of almost any
occupation. He could have filled almost any position in the state with credit......"
