  • Notes 
    • [Stella’s] Uncle Truman moved his house down to the edge of the woods on the new 30 acres and added more to it so they lived there a long time. Mabel was born there. Truman worked for [Stella’s] Grandfather and drilled other places too, but never seemed to get ahead much--drank in army and sort of stuck to him. Good-looking, pleasant and could do good work.

      Truman went south for his health. He took up a pine-homestead and later (1884) Agnes and children went down. High waters in the South, but they arrived safely. They lived at Astabula [Ohio] first [and Later] (Sumter County) [Florida] They had an orange grove and even raised pineapples.

      Truman worked at the carpenter's trade. Sunstroke when shingling a hotel at Tampa, Florida. They all had malaria and yellow fever broke out so Agnes and the children came home.
