Cousin Bait: Opening Dialogue

Fellow GeneaBlogger Jennifer Wilhelmi of The Erudite Genealogist began following my blog a while back and wrote me regarding the LEMASTER surname to see if we have a connection.  She was looking for more information regarding Phebe LEMASTER and Johann JUDY (TSCHUDI) and was hoping I could help.

Above are pages 227-228 from the Lemasters U.S.A. 1639-1965 genealogy compiled by Howard Marshall Lemaster and Margaret Herberger, published at Carlinville, Illinois, 1965.  The work does not connect Phoebe to other Lemaster lines, though later works by Ralph Smith place her in the family of Richard Lemaster, son of Isaac and Catherine (Ward) Lemaster.

Though I don't yet have a connection with Jennifer, it is nice to know that the "cousin bait" you create when blogging about your family history can lead to further discussion.  Perhaps our dialogue will ultimately end up with a definitive connection.

What is the works of Ralph Smith that you refer to that places Phoebe Lemaster in the family of Richard, son of Isaac Lemaster? Is it published works with a title? I am very interested as Phoebe and Johann Judy are my third great-grandparents. Thank you.
