Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very much enjoying doing our family genealogy and learning about our family. The "Lemon" side, the "Eastman" side (my mother's) and the "Reid" side (my wife's). If anyone has any stories about our families I would love to see them.

I am working with Family Tree Maker 2014. I really enjoy working with this program. This project helps to keep my mind active. Originally from Galesburg, Michigan we now live in Lady Lake, Florida.

Connie and I have taken Genealogical trips researching our families and taking pictures of headstones in many cemeteries. We have been to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, & Canada recording cemeteries. If anyone has any further information or corrections please feel free to contact me so I can make this information as complete and correct as possible. If I know we have family members in a cemetery I usually take pictures of every legible, and some barely legible, headstones.

Please help me with corrections.If you have additional info or a correction to one or more of my memorials please use the edit button then suggest a correction on that memorial. Leaving me a message makes it harder to make that correction.

These trips have afforded us the pleasure of meeting many distant cousins and we even found the original "Lemon" house built in 1809 and still being lived in in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of talking with a man that had grown up in the house and could tell me many stories of its history.

A picture is worth a thousand words and for the most part I only post internments with a picture of the headstone. Consequently I don't always record every inscription on the headstone. It is already written in stone.

We don't take all these pictures as if we're in some sort of a contest. We do it so we can help other people researching for their family members. I much prefer having a picture of the headstone. It is my belief that in death the family is much more likely to record the proper/correct information. It is true that upon rare occasions an engraver will make a mistake but much less likely than a census taker. Census records are a good guide but some people are very lackadaisical in giving the correct information to the census taker or the census taker is only trying to earn a pay check and just writes down what he/she wants, the way he/she hears it and many times very unledgible.

Unfortunately, Connie passed away on February 12, 2011. I will carry on but researching is not the same without her help. I truly miss being able to use her as a sounding board for ideas and problems. We really enjoyed traveling and taking photos of cemeteries.

Family research can be an addiction, it is for me, but it can be very rewarding and is a great avenue for meeting and corresponding with many distant relatives. I wish everyone happy hunting in your research.

Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is the ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.) I take a lot of time posting these memorials. I am only too happy to make changes when I make a mistake but most of the time these public messages don't have enough information and don't even tell me what cemetery the person is in. I'm an old man and have a severe case of CRS so I'm not going to try to find your memorial in error.

Olds family
Do you have Rensalear (sp?) Olds b. 25 Jul 1821 in Canada and died probably in Iowa 5 Aug 1887? He was the father of LEAMAN (sp?) Archibald OLDS and my connection to this family.

RE: Olds family
I wish I could remember now. I should take notes. My husband of almost 30 years has decided he doesn't want me in his life any longer so I'm kind of in shock still. I just wanted to make sure you knew I read your response to me at this time.
Thank you for your understanding.

Olds family
Are you not connected to the Olds family? I ask because I found a tree with Lemon family members and I am almost certain this gal had Archibald Olds in it.
One of my gals married Leamon (SP?) Olds after her 1st husband died from the effects of being in Andersonville prison during the Civil War.
I'm just curious. And now more so given I've seen 'my' Leamon's name also spelled as Lemon which at first I thought was spelled wrong. Now it makes more sense.
I'm not able to do much in research due to a very serious heart illness. Thank you for any insight.

Ross Kenner birth date
Hello, Would you be able to make a note that Ross Kenner #45037129 in Greenwood Cemetery Waterford has a conflict for his birth year. Gravestone says 1886 and his birth registration says Jan 6 1887 (which I assume is more accurate). Thanks a bunch, Elaine :-)
