Theridion
Spiders of the Eastern US, Howell and Jenkins, pages 111 - 112. Troy's look very much like Theridion frondeum.

 
I agree

Jeff created the pictipes page

references
I can't find a written description of pictipes. It seems that frondeum is much more common, but that's about all I know (except that it matches image and description in Spiders of the Eastern United States.
