I'm looking for the family of Robert True and Maria Elizabeth Wheeler. They are my husband's great-great-grandparents. This is what I know. Information came from census reports and county histories. Maria or Elizabeth, I have seen her use both names, was born in Missisippi. Her father was born in SC and her mother in Ireland. Date of birth was about 1821. Maria married Robert True. He was born in Ohio in about 1810. His parents were born int KY and VA. In 1850 the family was living in Tiffin City, Clinton Twp. Sineca Co. OH. They had four children listed, James b.1833, Lucy b.1834, Elizabeth b. 1840,
Martha b.1848 all these children were born in OH. In the 1880 census they live in Decatur Co. IA. The children living at home at that time were, Maria G b.1856, Robert W. b.1859 , Charles Sumner b.1 Feb.1862, and Nancy Jane b.1865. Nancy is my husband's Great-grandmother. The last four children were born in Iowa exept Nancy who was born in MO.I have been told the family could have spent some time in the Egaleville area of MO. Nancy married Harrison Boyer and stayed in the Decatur Co. area. She died in 1941. Charles married Carrie Kauffman in KS. He died in 1951 and is buried in Garden City KS. Any info would be great.
