This was "then a frontier county, in a Mountainous Country in the Western part of Virginia." Trollinger's original log cabin was located about thirty or forty feet from a spring, and about three or four hundred feet south of old U.S. Route 11, the road between Radford and Dublin, just east of the latter town and opposite the Dublin Cemetery. . . . On this property was "a valuable salt petre cave," now (1970) located behind the Dublin Cemetery in the backyard of a residence in a housing development. Throughout the Revolution Henry Jacob Trollinger was engaged in manufacturing gunpowder for the Continental Army at this cave. In addition, he served as a member of the Montgomery County militia during the Revolution. He was married several times."

Henry Beech, and sailed by way of the English Channel port of Dover to Philadelphia. They arrived in September 1738, and took the oath of allegiance to the BritishCrown on September 20th of that year. Leaving Eberhard in Pennsylvania, Adam Drollinger went with other Germans across Maryland and Virginia to Orange (now Alamance) County, N.C. where he settled in 1745 on the western bank of Haw River where the railroad now crosses the river. He "entered quite a large body of land" there, selecting the location on account of the waterfalls and abundance of fish. There he was instrumental in establishing a union Lutheran and Reformed Church on the "pike leading from Salisbury to Hillsboroh at Haw River." He changed the spelling of his name to Trollinger, although it still was pronounced "Drollinger." Adam died in 1776 at Haw River, N.C., and left at least one son, Jacob Heinrich (Henry Jacob) Trollinger."
