Hi Terri

Last week you wrote about your lack of success with Tennessee Lemasters.
Below is some information on Maury Co., Tenn. Lemasters that you may or may
not find interesting. I also have family from Dover, but now Lemasters.
They are principally the Whitfords.

Best Wishes

Will Lyles

Hello to all LeMaster researchers . . .

I too am researching the LeMaster family. I am not having any luck at all.
The LeMaster's that I'm related too came from Dover, Tennessee. I know of
my great-grandfather George LeMaster. His wife was Emma Allen (who by the
way was adopted by Allen's) so I am at a real loss here. They had several
children one of which was my grandfather Thomas Jack LeMaster. He married
my grandmother Ruby Evelyn Goodin in Dover, Tennessee. He was a WWI
veteran. Ruby Evelyn was a descendent of Brittain Sexton who founded
Standing Rock in Dover. I cannot find anything on the LeMaster's from
Tennessee. They all moved to Granite City, IL where I'm from. George
LeMaster's children were: Rufus, Georgia, Nanny, Charles, Eddy Mae, Thomas

Jack, and Henny. I do know that George LeMaster's father was Sandy
LeMaster but I do not know where he was from. If anyone has any
information, I would be glad to share anything that I have but it sure
isn't very much.

Just as a little FYI, I'm also researching Goodin (Dover, TN), Frith (Trigg

Co, KY), McKinney's (Trigg Co) and Shelton (Trigg County). In fact I am
co-authoring a book with my cousin Ron Shelton on the Shelton's of Roaring

I would be glad to hear from anyone.

Hello everyone...
I am researching the LEMASTER family in Ky...mainly Magoffin , Johnson and
Morgan counities.
We descend from Abraham LeMaistre/Lemaster.

Have noticed that hardly anyone has been posting since I have been on this
list. May I suggest that we all repost our queries and lines so that
newcomers will see what lines each of us are researching? By doing this
perhaps we will all gain info .

Let's join together to make this an active list....
