Tombstone Tuesday: William Clifford LeMaster (1871-1922)

Source: Evergreen Cemetery (Colorado Springs, Colorado), W.C. LeMaster marker, photographed by Nick Hardy, 23 January 2011.

William Clifford LeMASTER, son of Luman Walker and Mary Keziah (CHEW) LEMASTERS, is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Random Act of Genealogical Kindness volunteer, Nick Hardy, provided these photos for me.

Though the marker states his birth was 1870, all other indications show his birth as September 1, 1871 in Darke County, Ohio.  He married Lella Edith LEWIS on August 20, 1892 Jay County, Indiana and they had 4 children.  William died July 26, 1922 in Sedalia, Douglas County, Colorado.

I am Director of Evergreen Cemetery Benevolent Society. I want to invite to take part in our new Stories and Stones project at Evergreen Cemetery. We will be creating story boards through out the cemetery sharing stories of those buried there. Would you be interested in sharing your family history. Email me at evergreencemeterysociety@yahoo.com and I will send further details.
Thank you
