John, I tracked-down your other posts (listed under a different email address), so no need to answer why you want the info. on John Truman....
According to my records, John "True" Truman Swank was born on Sep. 30, 1877 and married Alta Whited on Feb. 16, 1905.
I have 2 children listed, Lula Faye (died 1982) and Orrin (died 1997). John Truman was the 2nd oldest of 12 children born to Cornelius Michael Swank and Sarah Eliza Grimes. If I remember correctly, all of John's brothers and sisters are dead now.
In a previous posting, you also listed interest in Swank family reunions. You missed the boat on that one, as your line of Swanks used to have a yearly reunion in Smith Center, KS up until the late 1990's. Towards the turn-of-the-century, the number of people showing-up faded away, so they stopped having it. They were labelled as the 'Swank-Grimes Reunion', and they were put-on by Bill Lee (Bill recently passed-away and was the son of John's older sister, Lura). Bill used to also publish a family newsletter, and the last one of those that I recall was in 1990. That issue listed 'The 31st Annual Swank-Grimes Reunion' as being held on June 10, 1990. Contact me if you want more information.
