Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Trueblood
Hi Lynda,

Here's a little bit more information:

Brownstown Banner newspaper, Brownstown, IN
Wednesday 24 April 1912;Front Page, Column 4


Celebrated by Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Trueblood, of Sparksville

The following item was sent to this office for publication a few weeks ago, and was misplaced with some other mail matter, but now we take the pleasure in publishing it now, as golden wedding anniversaries do not occur very often.

"March 27, 1912, marked the end of the fiftieth year of married life for Mr. and Mrs. Jno. A. Trueblood, who live about two miles north of Sparksville. They are among the most substantial, respected and praise-worthy citizens of the county. They have resided on their present farmstead for about thirty years, and have a large circle of relatives and friends.

On the date above mentioned nearly one hundred people assembled at their home bearing an abundant supply of provisions for a great feast, and he day was enjoyed to the fullest extent by all present.
Mr. and Mrs. Trueblood received many valuable presents which they highly appreciated.

Jno A. Trueblood, son of James and Nancy Weddle Trueblood, was born December 23, 1838. He was one of a family of thirteen brothers and sisters, of whom four others are living and were present at the above occasion, viz: Rhoda Hill, Emma Martin, Ella Julian and F. H. Trueblood, of Vincinnes.

Mrs. Jno A. Trueblood, whose maiden name was Hester J. Martin, was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Martin. She was born June 14, 1844, and was one of a family of eleven brothers and sisters of whom three others are living and were present.

Other guests present from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Julian, of Thompsonville, Illinois, U. S. McHargue, of Lander, Wyoming, and O. F. McHargue, of Columbus, Montana."

A picture of Mr. and Mrs. Trueblood accompanied the above write-up, with the request that it be published, but we are sorry that we are not able to do so, as country printing offices are not equipped for making newspaper cuts.

Freeland H Trueblood (63142933)
Believe I might have found the gravestone for him. There are 2 Freeland Truebloods listed; both also have photo requests. Since you've put a lot of info on this memorial I thought you might know more about him. Do you know if he served in the military? (Civil War, I believe) Military was the only stone I found with no dates listed.

Thank you. Please let me know if you think this is the right Freeland & I'll post the photo to this memorial.

RE: Foster Grave Photos
You are very much welcome. I included a picture of Balser Foster's obituary on the photos page of his memorial. It seemed like the easiest way to send it to you. Let me when you save a copy and I will take it back off.
