Family Milestones: November 24th

My paternal granduncle, Gerald Walker LEMASTERS, married on this date in 1929 to Pearl Lovina SMITH. Gerald was born January 15, 1896 in Jay County, Indiana, and was the older brother to my Ord Wehrly LeMASTER. Pearl was born April 23, 1894 in Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of Samuel E. and Mary E. (BIBLER) SMITH. They lived in Penn Township, Jay County, Indiana. Gerald died May 1987 and Pearl in 1984. Both are buried at the Salamonia Cemetery, Jay County, Indiana.

My maternal 5th-great grandaunt, Charity MILLS, married on this date in 1810 to John GWIN. The Mills family were Quakers, and this date has not been verified as being in the correct format in my database. Charity birth is recorded as occurring in 1789-11mo-14d, the daughter of Aaron and Charity (MENDENHALL) MILLS. I have no information on John GWIN's parentage. The Mills family were members of the Deep River Monthly Meeting in North Carolina, and further research is needed.

My paternal 4th-great granduncle, Nathan CHEW, was born on this date in 1796 in Gloucester County, New Jersey. Nathan was the son of Nathaniel and Sarah (SPRINGER) CHEW. Nathan married Sarah WARD on March 11, 1819. He died July 28, 1890. Nothing further is known.
