David Trueman Etta Udella STILES had not reached her first birthday when her father died and was not quite two when her mother died. The youngest of the seven orphaned children, she was raised to the age of 13 by her Grandparents, John Francis Smith and Sarah Ann Read. She was then taken in by her aunt and uncle, Edmund Read and Lydia Higgs. She had just turned 23 when she married George Trueman. A placid woman and somewhat less than 5 ft. 2 inches tall, she was a hard worker and kept a neat house. Initially, as a new bride she cared for her failing father-in-law, John Gilbert Trueman, who lived in the west end of the house in Truemanville, Nova Scotia, until his death on the 19th of August 1924. She raised a family of six in the east end. When Juanita Reid, their oldest son, Carl's, first wife died of tuberculosis in 1946, the house was shared again. When Carl remarried in 1949, Etta and George moved into the west end of the house. Her door was open to all her grandchildren who streamed through the big house on hot summer days looking for cookies or string to go fishing in the "brook". She also took the grandchildren on great adventures to the "cabin" in the logging woods on the north side of the farm. Here she taught them the intricacies of "Eights", "Fish", and other card games. Later in life, when she was not besieged by hungry grandchildren, she crocheted and did "fancy work". She had many relatives and friends who celebrated with her and George on their 50th wedding anniversary in January 1962. She died of cancer eight years later aged 81.

David Trueman At 43 years of age Ezra Stiles died 24 Dec 1889 leaving a widow with seven children. A couple of months before his death Ezra's wife wrote the following to her brother, Thomas Reid Smith who had gone to the Klondike, then to Vancouver Island:
Springhill
Nov 1/ 1889

Dear Brother,

I sit down to write you a few lines to let you know how we are but sorry to tell you that Ezra has been sick all summer with parpylise and is no better yet and afraid he never will be and the baby has been sick most of the summer so you see that I have been kept busy all summer with sickness. I suppose that you will be cross at me for not writing to you before this time but Dear brother I hope that you will forgive me for not writing I have been very busy but still I might have wrote but Dear brother I will try to better next time but how much we need God's help in our every day life to carry us through. More and more I relise it and Dear brother I do hope and trust you do need God's help to carry and help you along for I am sure you must feel lonely sometimes away in that strange country but is there anyone there from this country that you know or not. Write and tell me if there is anyone I suppose that you never think of coming home at all and is the time good out there now and how do you like the place to live in. Is it as good as Nova Scotia to live in The times in Springhill are very good but Ezra is not able to do any The folks are all well at present as far as I know. The folks down in Nappan are all well the last I heard from them. Write soon Dear brother and tell me all the news I must close with love to you Dear brother as it is past twelve o'clock at night and the baby is crying to get up so good by for this time from Minnie to loving brother Thomas forget me not forget me never forget me not in the hours of care though forgotten in the hours of pleasure Forget me not in the hours of prayer Dear brother all though I have been long in writing to you though are not forgot in my prayers Dear brother."

It is not clear of what Ezra died. There is some possibility that he was paralyzed by some disease or farm accident. His death changed the family drastically.

He is buried in Amherst Cemetery.
