Boulder County Biographies: Truitt

The following information on the Truitt Family was submitted by Lottie Hendricks

James A. Truitt, who married Prudence A. Drake, in Stark County, Illinois in 1860. Prudence died somewhere in the Midwest (probably either Illinois or Iowa). After Prudence's death, James moved with his children to Jamestown, Boulder County, Colorado sometime prior to the 1880 census. James A. Truitt is buried in an unmarked grave in Jamestown, Colorado.

James A. Truitt's sister, Henrietta Truitt, outlived 3 husbands. Her spouses were as follows: 1. Andrew Emanuel, 2. M. U.. Steel, and 3. Joseph H. Bunce. She only had children by the first husband, thus there are 5 Emanuel children with descendants I would like to learn more about. Henrietta had moved to Colorado sometime prior to the 1880 census, and lived in Jamestown, and then later on a ranch near Allenspark. I have an old local history which states that the Bunce School house, in Boulder County, was named after her. She is buried in Lyons.
