Joseph Troll was educated in Germany. After his arrest for involvement in the 1848 German Revolution, he emigrated to America and settled in Belleville. By 1856, he was a teacher in West Belleville and a member of the St. Clair County Teachers Institute. He was fascinated with astronomical clocks and received two patents for tellurians.
