Looking for a Charles W. Trent of VA, WVA, KY who worked for the R.R. in WVA, in Beckley and Hinton areas... md. there, had kids, died in FL I believe... his granddaughter is up against a brick wall as there seems to be NO ONE to whom he connects, nor is there much public info on him! Also connected to a ROSE family in the Charleston, SC area, where one member of the family was a "fire man"... no local records tho....
