John Anderson Truman (1851–1914) and Martha Ellen (Young) Truman (1852–1947) were the parents of Harry S. Truman. They chose the name Harry after his mother's brother, Harrison "Harry" Young (1846–1916). They chose "S" as his middle initial to please both of his grandfathers, Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young. The "S" did not stand for anything, a common practice among the Scots-Irish. A brother, John Vivian (1886–1965), was born soon after Harry, followed by one sister, Mary Jane (1889–1978).
John was a hard-working farmer. He was also a livestock dealer and a road overseer (supervisor).
