LeMaster Bird Repairs : Salamonia, Indiana (1917)

One of the unusual ephemera finds from my visit to the auction of items from Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana was this cancelled check written to the Montgomery Ward & Co. by J. Murl May drawn on the Peoples Bank.  In the memo field is written "Lemaster Bird Repairs".

Which LeMaster family member was this in reference to?  And what was being repaired?  A birdhouse?  Who knows?  Still, an interesting reference to my family.
