Perhaps they are the parents of George, as we have the marriage of Elizabeth Palmer Debord and Robert Trist in 1835. I have an example in our family where someone was given the full name of her great grandmother as her second and third middle names. she hated it, but it proved very useful in tracing the family tree.
Sometimes a name was kept in the family if there was hope of an inheritance, and it was proof of a connection.
