Also from Amy;
From "The Wilhelm Family Archive":
John True b. 1772 in Belknap Co., N. H., moved to Holderness, Grafton Co., N. H., in 1791, with his wife Abagail (Smith) True, he being 20 years old and she 18.
He took 160 acres of Government land between Squam Lake and Squam Mountains, extending to the top of the mountains, making a beautiful and varied scenery, when it was partly cleared and cultivated. He soon cleared one acre, and had
the timber sawed into lumber, and built a house 30x42 ft., some year later built on an L 20x40 ft. divided into a summer kitchen and workshop with fireplaces and
a brick oven; running water was piped from a spring "beneath a rock in the back
garden. A Dutch oven sat before the fire on live coals, for baking corn bread, and a tin oven called a "baker" (this had an open front) to set near the fire,
for baking cakes and pies, when a small quantity was required. John True had three sons and four daughters.

Enoch, lived at Center Harbor, N. H., had one son and one daughter Betsy, m. Nelson Bean of Moultonborough, N.H., had one son John.
Simeon, lived and died at Meredith, N. H., had six sons and two daughters.
