Death Certificate: Luman Cooper LeMasters (1867-1933)

One of the successes of my recent genealogy research trip was obtaining this death record of my paternal great-grandfather from the Jay County Indiana Health Department.



Of note is the fact that the record spells the surname as LEMASTER versus LEMASTERS as in many records. The date of birth shown on the certificate matches what I have in my database, and the parents names match, albeit his father is listed by his middle name and they show his mother's maiden name as "Kathrine" as opposed to "Keziah" which is what I have. Will need to look into this.
