Jessie J. Gantz
I do Find A Grave in the Woodland Cemetery a lot and I was trying to figure out an old stone that was hard to read. And while I was looking for names I ran across Jessie J. Gantz #18005 The information in the book is he was born in Greenup County Kentucky May 21 1892 and died in Lloyd Kentucky March 15 1965. And he was in section D lot 112. And a note also says moved to Greenup Kentucky April 21. So when I googled his name and dates your memorial came up. Also in the births for Lawrence County Ohio there is one for Malinda McKee born December 25, 1894 in Burlington Ohio to John B. McKee and Nancy J. Adams. There are from 5 to 7 children born to John and Nancy Jane Jennie Adams McKee. Two of the births had her maiden name different so I do not know if they were their children and a mistake was made. Hope this might help some.

Lemaster lineage
Barbara,
I am a decendent of the Lemaster family. Is Ethel Lemaster's maiden name castle? And was she married to William Arby Lemaster? My grandfather was Dewey Lemaster, which passed away when I was only 4. I do not know much of his family, except he had whole & half siblings. The father to all children is William Arby Lemaster, but from what I can gather, he was married twice... to a Laura Grim & Ethel Castle. Was wondering if this is the same person? If it is, I would like to visit her cemetery! It is not too far from where I live!
Thanks so much!

I am about an hour from Nappanee, so I'll have to head over there some time soon. Thanks for the info! I have been to the history/genealogy center at Preble Co, OH, to research Jacob Holdeman's ancestry. There is a lot of material there, but not much I didn't already know about Jacob.

RE: Sophia Holdeman
I am descended from Sophia through her son Eli. His daughter Alice m. Madison Hursey and had a daughter Mary Charlotte. "Lottie" Hursey m. Floyd Launer and had daughter Mary Charlotte, who went by Mary. Mary married John Hiatt and had twins William L. and (ready for this?) Mary Charlotte, who is called Charlotte. Charlotte married Daniel Smith, and I am a result.
Does your friend have any information about Sophia? My knowledge of that line stops with Sophia's father Christopher, and I'm not even sure of his surname - Montel, Mantle? My grandma was told Sophia was related to the Queen of England, but I cannot prove it. I would LOVE additional info!

Victor is buried in the next row east of his mother, directly in line with her grave. I apologize for the quality of the photos. The grave's situation, under evergreens with a sunny open area behind, makes the lighting difficult no matter the season or time of day

WILLIAM HORTON 31 ( SIC 21 ) LOSES LIFE IN STREAM
AT RUSHTOWN IN SAVING 10 YEAR OLD GIRL

BODY NOT RECOVERED

VICTIM CAUGHT IN SWIRL WHILE CARRYING CHILD ON SHOULDERS;
SEARCH OF RIVER RESUMES

Portsmouth first death attributed to the extreme heat was this Sunday afternoon when the Scioto River at Rushtown claimed the life of William Horton, 21.

With the mercury at 96, a swim party was formed to seek relief in the nearby river.

A short time later Mr Horton gave his life in saving Joyce Brady 10, daughter of Mr and Mrs Ralph Brady of Rushtown.

BODY NOT RECOVERED

Mr Horton went down as aid reached his side and failed to resurface. As a boat reached the couple Mr Horton pushed the girl into the boat and sank beneath the surface. The body has not been recovered. City fireman and campers resumed the search today.

Mr Horton was a son of Mr and Mrs W. B. Horton of Beaver and came here two months ago to seek employment with Midland Grocery Co. He lived at a camp at Rushtown with his brother George Horton, 27, who witnessed the drowning and aided in the search.

It was the first drowning here in the current swimming season and the seventh drowning in the county this year. Several of the party at the camp went to a sandbar in the river by boat, others swam down. The group was playing in the bar and wading in shallow water.


CAUGHT IN SWIRL

Mr Horton placed Miss Brady on his shoulders and was wading around in the water
with her. they had been in the water several minutes, when Mr Horton was caught by the swirl, there is a cross current at the point which causes an edy, the river was swift and Mr Horton seemed to be carried downward into a deep hole. Calmly he called for aid, telling those on the bar that he was out to far, and was being carried in the current.

To Miss Brady he said " DON'T BE AFRAID, I WILL NOT LET YOU DROWN"

James Warman, 19, of 1211 Third Street, who too, lives at the Horton camp, leaped into a boat and rowed towards the couple. As the boat reached the pair, Mr Warman and Mr Horton appeared to shove the girl into the end of the boat, Mr Warman reached the girl an pulled her in. By the time he placed the girl in the bottom of the boat, Mr Horton disappeared.


ELIBAS AIDS SEARCH

Ellison Elibas, 20, of 2231 Cleveland Ave., visitor at the Horton camp, was on the bank. He reached out and dived for the body.

Campers organized a searching party immediately and began searching the stream. Dr. O.L. Rossiter, Louis Semones, E.S. Brady and sons, Ralph and Wayne assisted. City fireman , Joseph Cropper, Leslie Flowers, Walter Doll and Raymond Justice responded.

State police and county officers also answered the call.

The Horton brothers and Mr Warman rented the camp about two months ago and made their home there. William Horton was a resident of Beaver, and was a graduate of Beaver High School. George Horton had been employed by Midland Grocery Co several years. William Horton came here to live with his brother and work for the grocery firm. He worked in the Gallipolis territory the last two weeks. Both brothers were active in Franklin Ave M.E. Church.

Besides the parents and brother, the victim is survived by another brother, Charles Horton-Robinson Ave and three sisters, Mrs Luther Carter, 2030 Avenue Road, Mrs Clarence Mcgee of Stockdale and Mrs Verbal Sampson of Minford.
