Amanuensis Monday: Information from Book of Shelby Co. Ohio

An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. 

Information from Book of Shelby Co. Ohio

Settlers of Shelby County and the lands they entered.  They became permanent citizens.  The LeMaster & Young families are often mentioned for tax levy, judge list, board of Election officers.

Two Jacob LeMasters - tax, judge, election book
       Isaac LeMasters -  "  "

This was back in 1820, 1824

The family is traced back to first settlers of 1818 in Shelby County - Jacob LeMasters

One of 3 local ministers L. W. Lemasters & a circuit minister or preacher Philip LeMasters were members of Wesley Chapter M.E. Church organized in 1838 & still in use by descendants & others.

Relatives by marriage are the Adam Young Philip Young, T. McVays (Jane LeMasters, daughter of Jacob LeMaster married Thomas McVay (came from Virginia as early settlers)  I think grandpa Luman Walker LeMaster's mother was a Young.  In an old book I reviewed that belonged to the Sidney News the Jacob LeMaster & Youngs were written about & I am quite sure great grandmother was a Young.

The Young family according to recent surveys were prominent in the 1800s.  I haven't read the book I own as yet, only scanned it & looked up the LeMaster, Young, McVay & _____ families listed in the back of the book.

Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.
