True, Thorman, Haumesser, Robison in IL early 1900's

Hello, I am looking for surnames True, Thorman and Haumesser in southern IL. I have very few records but here are some of the major people.

Charles Henry True
Ollie Alice True (d. 2/8/1950)
They were married 8/18/1897

They had at least 10 kids and one of the boys was supposedly ran over by a train as a child in the Jefferson Co. area. The other version of this story is that other children tied him to the track and that is how he got ran over. ANY info on this would be great. The boys that this could be are Virgil Lee and Cecil (Sam) Harold. I also have a hunch that it could be that I just don't know the name of this son. My mom only asked my great grandmother about her brother once and she got really upset, which leads me to believe that this incident happened after 1914.

I am also looking for Thorman, Robison and Haumesser. Specifically I would like to know more about Henry Thorman and his wife Cath (Katherine, various spellings) Haumesser. They were married 3/26/1883. The only child I am aware of is Dorothy Mathilda Thorman who was born Jan 23, 1900. Dorothy later married Frank Robison.

Thanks!!! I really appreciate any help, this is my mother's side of the family and the trail is very cold right now.
