John LEMASTERS and his family were enumerated in the 1860 census of Pulaski Co., IN in Van Buren Twp. on June 26, 1860 under the surname LEMASTER. John was the son of Jacob and Hannah (________) LEMASTERS and was my paternal 3rd-great granduncle.
John's occupation was that of a farmer, with the value of his real estate standing at $1000 and his personal estate at $200. John. aged 55, was erroneously listed as being born in Ohio; he was born in Mason Co., VA. Wife Mary was listed as aged 51 born in Pennsylvania.
The rest of the family consisted of sons Thomas M. and William W., aged 21 and 19, who were listed as farm laborers; daughter Mary E. aged 18, son James aged 16, daughter Nancy J. aged 14 and son Luman W. aged 12. All were listed as being born in Ohio. Luman's name was listed as Laman.
The other children of John and Mary were not enumerated on the same page and I need to do further research on this family. I believe that they migrated from Shelby Co., OH to Pulaski Co., IN shortly after the death of John's father, Jacob, in 1852.
