Random Research Updates

A few random research threads that I'm working on this week:

  • Contacted a volunteer from the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness website, attempting to locate an obituary of William Clifford LeMaster, who died July 26, 1922 in Victor, Colorado.  Received a quick response back from the volunteer, who was going to check to see if Colorado Springs genealogy library had local papers on microfilm to help me.
  • Sent off to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, MO for records of Luther P. Cummings, U.S. Navy records.  With Eileen as next-of-kin, there should be no charge for anything that they find using SF-180.
  • Attempting to track down the records of the Salamonia Methodist Episcopal Church.  Contacted Jay County Historical Society, Indiana Conference of United Methodist Church and finally DePauw University.  Their archives have records of memberships, baptisms, marriages and funerals.  Will have to plan a research trip.
  • Contacted the Colorado State Archives regarding records of the divorce and will of William Clifford LeMaster.  They responded positively, but it may be cost prohibitive to obtain these records.  Choices, choices...
