Got a SUPER e-mail from a gal who had found Loren Trullinger's picture - she would like to give it to a family member. She sent me a copy for the GenWeb page though - thanks sooo much Shelley -- see her overview of Loren at end. His parents were from Fountain County ! kbz :)
-- I've "rescued" an old photograph of Loren TRULLINGER which was taken > at the Eastman Studio in Portland, OR. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Loren likely in his teens or 20's at the time. Based on limited research and thanks to the help of a TRULLINGER Family Researcher, I've gathered the following additional information regarding Loren and his family:
Loren or Loran Blodget or Blodgett TRULLINGER was b. 2 Jan 1869 in Middle Fork Township, Ringgold Co., IA to parents Milton Stone or Stonewall or Stonewell TRULLINGER (b. 18 May 1830 in Fountain Co.
