Guardianship papers
She was the only child of Job and Mariah Jenne to live to adulthood.

She is listed on the death certificate of Henry Benjamin Trueman as Elizabeth
Snoddy.
According to Larry Browns website, Elizabeth died just a couple of weeks after
Henry Benjamin was born. Supposedly from eating green apples.(not proven)

The guardianship papers for Elizabeth start in 1854. They end in 1858 after she
married James Trueman. William F Jenne, her uncle and her fathers brother, was
made guardian. All of Jobs possessions were sold for $891.00 plus other monies
came from the sale of some wheat and renting the farm. I believe James and
Elizabeth lived on the farm for awhile because in 1860 they are living in Fulton
Twp,Fountain Co, In. That is where the farm was located. Until his marriage
James had lived in Parke Co, In. When the guardianship was disolved James and
Elizabeth received $313.00 in cash. That ended her fathers estate.
