LEMASTERS posted by Jeffrey Norris on Friday, February 26, 1999

Despairingly seeking info on Harley A. LEMASTERS. He was born in 1885, somewhere in Ohio (according to 1920 census), and different sources point to Holmes, Tuscarawas, Summit, Richland and Harrison counties. He owned a men's clothing store in Mount Vernon, Ohio, where he died in 1945. He had three children: Thomas Davis, Ronald Arlo, and Mary Dell. Harley was my grandfather, so the lack of info on him creates a gaping hole in my pedigree chart. Any leads on him would be appreciated.
