Allen Trimble

Allen Trimble (November 24, 1783February 3, 1870) was a Federalist politician from Ohio. He served as the 8th and 10th Governor of Ohio.

Trimble was born in Augusta County, Virginia to James Trimble, Revolutionary War veteran, and Jane Allen Trimble. In October of 1784 his father moved his family to a veterans land grant in then Fayette County, Kentucky. In October 1804 James Trimble died leaving Allen head of the family. Allen Trimble moved them to a homestead he and his father had established outside of Hillsboro, Ohio. After briefly serving during the War of 1812, Trimble served in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1816 to 1817 and then in the Ohio State Senate from 1818 to 1826. Trimble became Speaker of the Senate, and it was in this capacity that he became governor from January to December 1822 when Governor Ethan Allen Brown resigned to take a seat in the United States Senate. Trimble ran for re-election in 1822, but narrowly lost. He won election four years later, and then won a second full term in 1828. Trimble did not seek re-election in 1830. He then retired to farming, but did consent to accepting the nomination of the Know-Nothings for governor in 1855. In 1860 he was a delegate to the Constitutional Union Party convention in Baltimore. A street in Hillsboro, Ohio, Governor Trimble Place, is named in his honor.
