I would be interested in knowing the children or any other info someone may
have on the KINGs and TRUSS. The name JOHN keeps popping up in the King
names. And there are three KINGs listed in the 1800 cnesus for Pitt co. NC.
(abraham, john and thomas) they later moved to St. Clair ALA. with the TRUSS
family. I have a :
JULIA LEE KING b 1902 d 1982 married to JOHN WESTON THOMPSON in
Julia's father was JOHN S. KING b1882 d 1970 married to an indian woman
had these children: Julia Lee, Henry, Viola (married a HARMON) , Wille?, R
the father of JOHN S. KING was J.R. KING (believe the name is JOHN ROTEN
KING) b 1850 d 1924 married to LEONN TRUSS (daughter of JOSIAH TRUSS and
ELIZABETH HAGOOD) John and Leonn are believed to have been married in Winona
I know that John s. king had a brother named JESSE WADE KING married to JODI
___?___. There were a total of 10 children for J.R. King. 2 females and 8
Any further info you can give me would be appreciated. I am also interested
in tracing the TRUSS family and BRADFORD family back further.
thanks for everything. I also have a copy of a letter giving some history of
the TRUSS family. It was written by COLUMBUS TRUSS son of JOSIAH TRUSS I
think it is dated in 1912. It mentions alot of surnames, spouses and
children. I know that BRADFORD is listed in it. This letter has been
passed down through out the generations into the THOMPSON family.
please respond to me by email.
