He was a man of marked business capacity and amassed a large property and by his sterling worth of character he held lifelong the confidence of the community and a large patronage from a wide circle. He occupied many public positions of importance but though thus engaged and long away from town he kept his old Poland home and an unfailing friendship for all his native townspeople old and young. He married in 1847 Mary F Miliken. Their only son Frank D succeeds his father in the Portland firm, which still holds the old name of D. W. Truce & Co. This son Frank has entered upon the years of manhood with much of the tact and push of his honored father, and bedsides his local business in Portland, holds and interest in the corn packing industry with Fernald & Keene. He too delights to visit often and stay at times in the old Poland home.
