LeMaster Families: 1927 Jay County, Indiana Rural Directory

Complete Directory of Jay County, Indiana, 1927, M & R Directory Company, Portland, Indiana, page 188

The following entries for my LeMaster families were found in this 1927 rural directory of Jay County, Indiana.  This copy of the work was found at the Jay County Public Library, and an imaged copy is also found online.

Lemaster, Chesley (Clara) Port. R 6 Sec 8 Mad Tp. Rt 40 (Donald, Doris, Ralph)

Lemaster, Clarence (May) far. Port. R 4, Sec 30, Noble Tp. Rt 123 (Kenneth, Mary, Garth, Veragene)

Lemaster, Floyd (Opal) far. Port. R 6, Sec 31, Noble Tp. Rt 120 (Remonda)

Lemaster, Gerald W. (Mabel) lab. Salamonia, Mad. Tp. (Maxine, Nadine, Roberta)

Lemaster, L. Cooper (Barbara) far. Salamonia, Sec 10, Mad. Tp. H 66, J 39 (Ora, Mary, Ervin) {Correction: Children should be Ord, Mary, Elvin}

Lemaster, Luman W. (Mary K.) far. Port. R 6, Sec 8, Mad. Tp. H 80 (Mariah) {Who is this Mariah listed as a child? A granddaughter or foster child?}

This was one of those sources I had looked at many times, yet for some reason hadn't entered into my database.  It provides some great clues for further research, including the section numbers of the various farms.
