Find A Grave Memorial : Ord Wehrly LeMaster (1906-1971)

I've created a Find A Grave memorial page for my paternal grandfather, Ord Wehrly LeMaster (1906-1971), who is buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery, Jay Co., IN, along with my grandmother, Ruth.

Ord was born September 30, 1906 in Salamonia, Jay Co., IN, the son of Luman Cooper and Barbara Isabelle (Wehrly) LeMasters. He was the 11th born of 13 children.

He was named either after his uncle, Ord Otterbein LeMASTERS, or after Civil War general, E.O.C. Ord - or perhaps both of them were. His middle name, Wehrly, was a family name.

Since he died when I was just a child, I have no recollection of him.
