His descendants claim that he was a United Empire Loyalist, but he would have been too young - perhaps his father was? George Truax signed declaration as an alien to visit parents in St. Johns, QC, stating his age as 16 on 16 September 1794. He was a blacksmith. He served served in the War of 1812 as a sergeant in the Incorporated Militia of Upper Canada for two years. He was discharged on March 24th, 1815. His discharge papers state that he was born in Albany, and his age was 37 years, which would put his year of birth at about 1778. (Oral history from the family of Bev Truax claims that this George was the son of Jacob Truax and Catherine Dochsteder, and this is verified by the recently discovered record of midwife Mary Stevens. The connection still isn't 100%, since all this proves is that both Georges were born in 1778, but given the oral history I would say that it is reasonably certain.).

From Leonard H. Vincent Memoirs:
Abram Truax was born in Lower Canada, January 28, 1799 (about ten months before the death of George Washington). He was a brother-in-law of Grandfather (Stephen I) who married his sister Dorothy. By the members of the Steve Vincent family, he and his wife were known as "Uncle Brum" or "Brummy" and "Aunt Hannah," while to his family Stephen Vincentand his wife were known as "Uncle Steve" and "Aunt Dolly".
A history of him and his family would run current with that of Stephen Vincent and family. They associated together more or less. The story runs that once upon a time these two chums were out hunting with Phillip and Albion Vincent, sons of Stephen, and Alf Truax, son of Abram. They shot a deer on the other side of Black River and the two old men stripped off their clothes and swam the river to get it. When they got to it, the deer being only wounded, jumped up and ran. "Throw my gun over here," said Steve excitedly to his sons on the other side of the river.
"Where'll you have it?" said Phil, catching up the gun as if to throw it. It probably would have landed in the middle of the river had he thrown it. But quickly changing his mind, the two nude hunters took after the deer which being badly hurt was soon overhauled and Steve got astride of its neck and held its head while Brummy got a club to beat it to death. At the crucial moment, the deer ducked its head and Steve received the blow across the naked arms. "Gol Dum you Brum! What'd you do that for?" said Steve, dancing with pain. "Gar, Steve, I didn't mean to do that," said Brummy.
This comedy was of course hugely enjoyed by the younger fellows on the other bank of the river. But the deer was overhauled again and killed. When towing the deer back across the river they suddenly got into water which was too deep for Brummy's inches and his excited conversation was suddenly interrupted and succeeded by a succession of bubblings. This incident occasioned much mirth among the younger folks. But they got the deer and no doubt enjoyed the venison steak.
Both of the actors in this little drama made their exit from the theatre of this life so shortly after I entered it that I have no recollection of either, though I well remember the wives of both, one of whom was my Grandmother.
