U.S. President Direct Ancestor
Mary (Holmes) Truman is an ancestor of a US President/Vice President
Join: US Presidents Project
Discuss: Presidents


She married Anderson Truman 5 or 13 (both dates are seen depending on the transcription, the date is clearly 5th on the original license document) Aug 1846 in Shelby County, Kentucky. The transcription of the record records his middle initial as "L" which is probably a transcription error or a clerk error.[1] The informal marriage document also lists her father as Jesse Holmes and that she was at that time 21 years of age. Whether this was a literal age placing her birth about 1825 or merely confirming she was over 21 us unknown.
