My paternal great-grandfather, Luman Cooper LeMaster, was a rural mail carrier in Salamonia, Jay County, Indiana area.  I located this newspaper article while searching online that details how he was injured while on his route.


Horse Takes Fright at Auto and Wagon is Wrecked

Portlnad, Ind., Aug. 13 - L. C. Lemaster, carrier on rural route No. 1, from the Salamonia postoffice, was slightly injured this morning when his horse took fright at an automobile driven by Bryant parties, near the Murray farm, in Pike Township.  The wagon was overturned into a deep ditch and wrecked.  Lemaster escaped with only a few bruises, and after procuring another rig was able to continue his trip.
