      Truman received a good education. Upon reaching manhood he engaged in lumbering for 7 years on the north branch of the Susquehanna. He sold the lumber at various points along the river, Harrisburg, Columbia, Marietta, Port Deposit. In November of 1837 he and his family along with Parliment Hutchins and his wife Esther who was Sally Maria's sister started for Jefferson Co. After 11 days travel through all kinds of weather they arrived in Brookville on the 18th day of the month having made the entire trip on a two-horse wagon. He was still involved in lumbering. In 1840 he moved to Perry Township on a farm, which he cleared and cultivated. In 1843 he settled in Bell Township. In 1848 he made a permanent home in Winslow Township. He was very active in the development of Jefferson Co. He served one term as auditor for the county. Per Coulter, he was the lumber and coal man of the tribe, having engaged in these businesses near Rathmel & having become quite wealthy therein. The London Mines of that section are still famous throughout the region. He lived retired for some time before his death, which occurred April 11, 1891 on his farm in Winslow Township. He and some members of his family are shown in the 1860 Jefferson Co., PA census.
