Lila Helen Truman was the youngest child of eleven children born to Julia Euzell Crandall and Mica Spencer Truman.

Lila and her older sister, Rhoda helped their father make saddle cinches out of horse hair. (He made with the help of a neighbor blacksmith). He had a burlap sack full of horse hair. He had some kind of machine with wheels and handles and Rhoda and Lila would feed the horse hair into the machine. The cinches would be about five inches wide and about 3/4 of a yard long, similar to a braided rug. Her dad would then fasten one end of the finished cinch to the saddle with leather strings and attach a ring to the other end. This cinch was what held a saddle on a horse. After it wrapped around the horse's belly, it was pulled tight and buckled. Later it was stored in their granary. The granary got burned up, and the cinch machine melted out of shape. What a jewel of an antique it would have been. Now days he could have patended it and made a lot of money. Her father was always making something to make his outside work easier.

Lila married Clyde Frederick Adams.

Lila had a bad heart. She and her husband were working in Washington during the war and she was Rosy the Riveter. She became very sick and she thought she had asthma because she had such a hard time breathing. They went home to Huntington and the doctors told her she had a bad heart and died shortly after coming home.
