Death: Feb. 9, 1940
Peoria County

According to her obituary, Margaret Meinyer Truitt was born in Partridge Township, Woodford Co., Illinois. She was married to William S. Truitt. She had resided in Chllicothe, Illinois most of her life, except for the last 3 years of her life, when she lived with her daughter, Stella Truitt Demetreon Knickebocker Loy, in Peoria, Illinois.

There are only 3 children proven to have been born to Margaret Meinyer and William S. Truitt: Estella, Clara, and George.

*Error in birth date. The 1860 Census for Worth Township, Woodford County, Illinois lists Margaret Meinyer as being 1 year old. Margaret and William S. Truitt's marriage certificate in 1885 states that she was 28, when they were married. This indicates that she was probably born in about 1858.
