Napa County, CA Biographies





J. N. TRUE.
A member of one of the old and highly esteemed families of Napa county, J. N. True, who has given efficient service for a number of years as constable of Napa township, has stamped the impress of his individuality upon the community and has long enjoyed the confidence of the public and the esteem of his neghbors. Mr. True has been a lifelong resident of Napa county, having been born in the Soscol district on the 16th day of November, 1854, and is the son of Elijah and Elizabeth (Anderson) True. His parents were pioneer settlers of that locality, having crossed the plains with ox teams in 1853, bringing with them their six children, and settled in the Soscol district. The first year's crop was put in with the aid of oxen and in the following year Mr. True engaged in the hotel business. He was successful in his business affairs and during the later years of his life he lived in Napa. Both parents are now deceased.

J. N. True received his education in the public schools of Napa and was reared on the home farm. On attaining mature years he began farming on his own account, which vocation he followed continuously for many years, finally selling the farm and moving into Napa, where he has since resided. In 1920 Mr. True was appointed to the office of constable of Napa township for a period of two years, and so satisfactorily was his performance of his official duties that he was then elected for a four year term. He is energetic and judicious and exercises sound common sense in everything he does, so that he has earned the respect and confidence of the entire community.

Mr. True married Miss Leanna Custer, who also was born and reared in Napa county, and they have two children, Mrs. William Kenyon and Newton J. True. They also have five grandchildren. Mr. True is nominally a democrat and is usually found in support of his party on national issues, while in local elections he gives more consideration to the qualifications of the candidates than he does to the party they may represent. He is a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
