|Harry Lummis||RE: Lummis|
I BELIEVE they were descended from William Henry Lummis who was born around 1857 in Upper Penns Neck Township NJ. William was the younger brother of my Great Grand Father Richard W. The family was from the area. I have found them in census' together as children and am pretty sure of this relationship. I do have the family tree for the family traced back to Edward Lummis born in 1564 in Essex England.

If you like. George B was my 4th great grandfather. Thanks!
Just to give a heads up -
Nancy Anna Ritter Gemberling is buried in Salem Lutheran Church Cemetery and is often mistaken for the first wife of George B. She was actually his daughter in law. Matilda Pontius and family, George and Lydia Aurand are buried at Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery in Bristol, IN. Daniel Gemberling is buried at Grace Lawn in Elkhart, IN. Julia Ann Bender is buried at Osolo Cemetery, Elkhart, IN. Their father is also buried at Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery. The Gemberling's are a part of my family history and I have extensive research on them and am still searching for more information!

No, I am not related to the Young family. As far as the Mt Pleasant burials, they came directly from the Mt. Pleasant cemetery information. The others, I just enter obituaries when I find them.
|Jeffrey Nase||RE: Nace|
Woodside section is in the main cemetery.
Hi, I agree, Harleigh is not helpful at all. So, my intention is to walk the sections bit by bit to see who I can find. We only walked 1/2 of he Woodside section last Saturday, maybe the rest of the Nace's are in that section also.I'll let you know.

The grave was located by Debbie Cervino (#47530199) while she was looking for another grave site. I have asked her if there are other Naces buried nearby.

I added a photo today because I came upon his grave while looking for someone else.

I paid to sponsor this memorial, but have not received permission to maintain it. I wanted to link some of the family members. Could you please transfer this memorial to me? Thank you. Bud Hummel.

I may have contacted you before, if so, I apologize - I'm working back through my notes hoping for a new lead. Are you certain that Josiah Lumbard is buried in Union Cemetery? Find A Grave Memorial# 76213596 I cannot find him, but I cannot find a lead on this man anywhere, other than recently while working on the Scharf line, I came across this family interview, which says that his sister lived in Danville, and that J A Lumbard, his son, was illegitimate. According to this, he never returned to Selinsgrove, so I doubt he is buried here? But I can't begin to guess WHERE he might be buried, and I do not know what his sisters name was, so I cannot track her down either.
"Joseph Lumbard was born in Selinsgrove. His father was a traveling salesman from New England and in those days a salesman came to town by train or canal boat and would stay in town for several days. Joseph Lumbard was illegitimate, His father never returned to Selinsgrove but he had a sister from Danville who used to come and visit.
I remember one time when I was still living in Middleburg and was about four years of age, she came to visit us, She was dressed in green silk which made a noise when she moved. It had lots of lace made in the style of the late nineties.
When grandfather was about 15 he enlisted in the Army and was in the entire Civil War, He was only wounded once, when a piece of shell at Gettysburg hit him back of the ear When he returned to Selinsgrove after the war, he drank too much, I remember two interesting stories about him, Grandmother would not allow him to kiss her before the marriage, On the way to the minister (in a buggy he had hired to drive her to be married) he asked for one kiss and she replied "You have waited this long, you can wait another hour".
After the marriage he still drank. One night he was lying drunk in the gutter outside of the Methodist Church in Selinsgrove while a revival service was going on, He woke up and heard the singing, got up and went into the church, listened to the sermon and went up front when sinners were called. He went home sober and never again touched a drop of liquors In those days almost everyone kept a bottle of whiskey for colds. I know we did in our house, but Grandfather Lumbard never allowed one in his home.
His mother later married a man named Duck and had several children. I used to visit her home in Selinsgrove and knew Hazel Duck. She used to take me to Rolling Green Park. Grandpa Duck was dead and Grandmother Duck earned the living by baking bread. There was a large outdoor oven in the yard where the bread was baked and it always smelled so good around there. Besides Hazel there were several older girls who were married and I never knew them, but two brothers moved to Williamsport. When I was 10 or 11 years of age I used to visit Uncle Edward Duck. He was a floor walker in the rug dep. Of the big department store there. They were always very nice to me. After my mother had her operation in Williamsport, she went to Uncle Eds to get well. "
