Summary
The oldest document is an indenture made February 19, 1818 between Samuel Lindley and William Hobbs. A newspaper article dated January 16, 1914 has the headline, "Old Documents, A Letter One Hundred Years Old Still in the Possession of E. Hicks Trueblood -- The Most Remote Ancestors." The letter mentions Nathan Trueblood who was the great-grandfather of Noble. The article also reprinted the will of John Trueblood, dated May 7, 1692. An article dated October 17, 1914, is headlined: "Quaker's Contribution to the Early Life of Washington County." On September 13, 1956, The Salem Leader's front page story was: "Trueblood Farm, in Family Since 1815, Sold." The article shows a picture of the farm house and a picture of Mrs. Noble Trueblood, age 74. A newspaper article published September 22, 1965, stated "Blue River Friends Sesquicentennial Observance To Be Held October 3." The last item is the program for that event on Sunday, October 3, 1965, in Salem, Indiana. The program gives a two-page history of the Blue River Friends Meeting written by Mrs. Leafa Baynes. The morning and afternoon speaker was Dr. David Elton Trueblood. His autobiography is "While It Is Day." Dr. Trueblood, a friend of President Herbert Hoover (also a Quaker), preached the President's funeral oration. Elton Trueblood's obituary was published in the New York Times
