        Greetings Nancy.

        I appreciate your contacting me on your gr-2 grandmother, Bettie Truluck/Trulock. I don't have much info on her. She was born about 1815 in Georgia. She married Young B. Elkins II in Gadsden County, FL on 19 Sep 1844. They had a total of 9 children, 8 boys and 1 girl. The children were born between 1845 & 1863. The first five children were born in Gadsden Co., FL, while the last four were born in Decatur Co., GA. They moved from Gadsden Co., FL to Decatur County, GA between 1851 & 1853. Her husband died in Decatur Co., GA prior to 1880. I have no record of Bettie's death in my files.

If I can be of any other assistance, please let me know. My Kindest Regards. Art Clark.

I did a search to see if I could locate your Truluck Ancestors in Georgia & Florida in 1830 & 1840. I believe that Elizabeth's father is probably Joseph Truluck shown living in Thomas Co., GA in the 1830 census. He is living in Decatur County, Georgia in 1840, and is living just three doors away from Young Elkins I. Joseph had a daughter which matched the age of Elizabeth "Bettie" Truluck. I hope this helps you. My Kindest Regards, Art Clark.

I located Joseph Truluck born between 1770 & 1780 in the 1820 census for Jefferson County, Georgia. I am almost positive that he is your gr-3 grandfather. He is definitely the same Joseph who appears in Thomas County & Decatur County in the 1830 & 1840 censuses. Regards, Art

Dear Art,

Thank you for making this search on my behalf. I am sure that this Joseph Truluck must fit into the picture somewhere, given his proximity to Young Elkins I. However, I have been informed that the parents of Bettie were Sutton Trulock and Jane Powell, daughter of William and Sarah Powell. Their children were Della, Missouri (female), Gordon B., Zimmerman, Mary L., Sallie D., Andrew J., and Elizabeth "Bettie". I have no data on the children other than their names. I would appreciate hearing from you if you should happen to locate any info on this family.

I am very interested to know how you are connected with the Truluck family. Thank you again for your assistance.

I have the dates of birth for some of the children of Sutton H. Truluck who was born in South Carolina abt 1801. He shows up in The Lime Sink District of Decatur County, Georgia in the 1870 Census. The children are Zimmerman 30, born abt 1840; Sarah "Sallie" D. 25, born about 1845; and James B. 23 born abt 1847. NOTE: You did not mention James.

Elizabeth "Bettie" was born abt 1818 according to my information. If her birthdate is correct, Sutton would have to have been married by 1817, and that would have made him age 16 when he married. Also, his children appear to have been born in the 1830's and 1840's. For these reasons, I am compelled to question whether Sutton H. is the father of Bettie Truluck. I still believe that Joseph is her father.

I am not related directly to the Truluck family. However, My first wife's Stepmother was Gladys Truluck, born in 1905 in Dooly County, Georgia. She was descended from John Truluck, born about 1773 in North Carolina. I believe John to be a brother of Joseph Truluck.

If someone still believes that Bettie is descended from Sutton H., please have them contact me, and I will be glad to work with them to resolve this issue. They may have some evidence which I am not privy to. I am a Physicist by education, and a Rocket Scientist by profession. I try to evaluate all data fully before I arrive at a conclusion. So far, all the data I have seen still points to Joseph as your gr-3 grandfather. My Kindest Regards, Art

Dear Art,

This is a very fascinating development I will have to check my records thoroughly to see where I got the info on Sutton H. Truluck, but if your data is correct it would certainly call into question his parentage of Bettie. I think my information may have come from Lackey Stephens of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, who has connections with the Elkins family and has done a lot of research on the Elkins line. I have no record of Sutton's son, James.

I certainly would not question your judgment here and would like to do more research into the background of Joseph to see whether any more data will surface about Bettie.

Thank you for clarifying your relationship with the Truluck family. I was just wondering whether we might be cousins on some level.

I am going to pass your information along to all of my Elkins contacts and see whether anyone can come up with more data on the Trulucks. I have been posting queries to the Trulock message board on RootsWeb for several years without success, and perhaps Joseph will give us a new lead.


8. 4/2/2007: I originally had Elizabeth's parents as: Sutton Hines Trulock and Jane Powell, daughter of William Powell and Sarah Unknown. Sutton Hines Trulock b. 23 Oct 1800, Darlington District, South Carolina. (Info from Lackey Stephens and Ken Elkins.)
Delia Trulock
Missouri Trulock (female)
Gordon B. Trulock
Zimmerman Trulock
Mary L. Trulock
Sallie D. Trulock
Andrew J. Trulock
Elizabeth (Bettie) Trulock

I have changed this info today based on data received from Art Clark and Lackey Stephens.

        W. Y. HARE

William Young Hare was born April 21, 1878 and departed this life December 04, 1963, making his stay on earth 85 years, 7 months, and 13 days. We bow in humble submission to God's will.
Elder Hare joined the church and was baptized by Elder S. N. Redford August 04, 1909 at Georgetown, Texas. He was ordained to the Gospel Ministry October 31, 1937 at Harmony Church in Polk County, Missouri, and loved the Primitive Baptists until our heavenly Father called him home to ever dwell in that sweet home in glory.
He is survived by his wife, Annie Rader Hare, four children: Dodie Newman and May Pearl Pooley both of Kerrville, Texas, John Hare of Florida, and Robert Hare of San Antonio, Texas; thirteen grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren and four sisters. He is preceded in death by his parents. Elder and Mrs. J. L. Hare, his first wife, Mattie Wade Hare, four brothers, and one sister. May God fill the vacancy in the hearts of all his loved ones left behind. Be it resolved that a copy of this Resolution be sent to the family, a copy to THE BANNER OF LOVE, and a copy be entered in our church records. Written by request of Mt. Zion Church.

Elder Floyd Huggins, Moderator
Mrs. Ova Self, Mrs. Docia Patteson, Mrs. Ann Beicker, Committee
