Descendants of Isaac Lemasters (1795-1841)

Cousin bait through this blog may have paid off again, as I was contacted by someone researching the family of Jacob LeMasters (1832-1905), who they believe is the son of Isaac Lemasters (1795-1841).

Isaac Lemasters (1795-1841) was the son of Jacob and Hannah (________) Lemasters, my paternal 4x great-grandparents.

Isaac was born in Virginia and married Hannah Elizabeth COLEMAN on November 21, 1821 in Shelby County, Ohio.  They had 3 children: Jacob (born circa 1832), Hannah (born circa 1835) and Isaac (born 1837).  So far, I'm only aware of descendants of Isaac.  To find descendants of Jacob would be a great connection to make.

After Isaac's death in 1841 (about January 11) in Allen County, Ohio, the widow Hannah married John B. LOCKHART on July 1, 1841 in Allen County, Ohio.  Together they had three children : Loretta (born circa 1841), James W., and Emeline (born circa 1849).

I've found them in the 1850 census of Union Township, Auglaize County, Ohio, but have not researched them any further.

According to my correspondent, descendants of the family ended up in the Springfield, Illinois area.
