The Doctors LeMaster

While searching for information about my paternal great granduncles, Vernon Walker LeMASTER and Ord Otterbein LeMASTER, physicians of Sidney, Shelby County, Ohio, I came across the following at Google books:

Source: Hover & Barnes, ed. Memoirs of the Miami Valley, Robert Law Co., 1919, p. 367

The Drs. O.O. and Vernon LeMaster are brothers and natives of Indiana.  Dr. O.O. LeMaster was born in 1876, and graduated from Starling Medical college in 1902, practicing in Kettlersville, Shelby county, for twelve years before settling in Sidney.  Dr. Vernon LeMaster was born in 1887, and graduated from Michigan university medical college in 1914, about which time both brothers came to Sidney.  Lieut. Vernon entered the army medical service during the war, and has just returned from overseas service with the U.S. colors. (1919).

Ord and Vernon were sons of Luman Walker and Mary Keziah (CHEW) LeMASTERS, both born in Jay County, Indiana.  Vernon was actually born in 1888.  Starling Medical College is now known as the Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio.
