Jan. 9, 1893 of heart disease (B.C. Jan 19, 1893). There was a Richard Henry Trueman who was a photographer, born 1856 in Ontario, but I do not know if this is the same one. A link to his biography.

( gives the following biography of Richard Henry Trueman, photographer.... "He began as a tinsmith in Brampton, but had purchased a photo studio by 1886 and called it the Popular Photograph Parlor. He sold the studio in 1888 and moved to Brandon, Manitoba, to homestead with his wife Minnie (d. 1893). Trueman returned to Ontario and there met and formed a partnership with young Norman Caple from England. The two are supposed to have met in Toronto. Trueman & Caple travelled the Canadian Pacific Railway line for about a year and then set up headquarters in Vancouver. After the partnership was dissolved, Trueman remained in Vancouver but is not listed in the directories of 1895-1897. He was, however, travelling through the Prairies and appears to have spent most of the time in Medicine Hat between 1894-99. The newspaper references stated he was from Vancouver. He continued to travel extensively and up until two months before his death was managing his Revelstoke branch studio. Trueman was a superb landscape photographer and was one of few West Coast photographers to print his negatives on platinum paper. The first modern publicexhibit of his work was produced by the Peter and Catharine Whyte Foundation, Banff, in 1981."
