True, Harold (1 March 1896 - 3 March 1955) 

Mr. and Mrs. Ben Beeckler were in Steves Point Thursday, where they attended funeral services for her brother, Harold True, 59, a veteran of World War I, who had died at his home unexpectedly on Tuesday. 

Harold True, the oldest son of William and Margaret (Ferris) True, was born at Lowell, Mass., on March 1, 1896, and was about 11 years old when he came with his parents to this community. The father, William True, was one of the engineers who built the Hatfield Dam on the Black River.  Harold’s early years were spent in Jackson and Clark Counties.  He served with the U. S. Forces in World War I.  For the past 37 years he had been employed as a conductor on the Green Bay and Western Railroad.  

He is survived by his wife; his mother, Mrs. William True, Winnebago, Ill.; three brothers, Wilbur, Ralph and Gordon of Minnesota, and two sisters, Mrs. Vance Williams, Winnebago, and Mrs. Ben Beeckler, Granton.  The burial took place in the Neillsville City Cemetery.
