"Edmund Truckenmiller, born in Delaware township, was a farmer there for many years, at the time of his death owning two farms, one of 145 acres and one of 120 acres.  He was enterprising and intelligent in his agricultural work, and was not only admired for his ability but esteemed for the many sterling traits which made his influence strong in the community.  He was a Lutheran, active in church work, and helped to build the Union church at McEwensville, donating liberally toward the expenses of its construction. He served as deacon and elder.  Mr. Truckenmiller was a resident of McEwensville the last thirty years of his life, dying May 16, 1889, aged seventy-eight years, eleven months, twenty-five days.  Few citizens of his locality were more generally missed, and he was held in the greatest respect by all who knew him. Politically he was a Republican.  His wife, Mary (Schmeck), whose family came from Berks county, died Oct. 17, 1876, aged sixty-nine years, two months, eighteen days. Eleven children were born to this couple, of whom Eliza died unmarried; Edmund died young; Solomon; Malinda married Ephraim Leinbach; Daniel lives retired at Watsontown; Rachel died unmarried; Dr. William is at Allenwood, Union Co., Pa.; Calvin is a resident of Centerville, Mich.; Valentine S. lives in Delaware township." Floyd's History Of Northumberland County
