Eldest child of Uriah B. and Emily (McIntyre) Lemmon, was born in Townsend,
Sandusky county, Ohio, November 26, 1837, and died at his home in Fremont,
Ind., aged 77 years and 13 days.  His early years were spent on his father's
farm and in attending and teaching school.  He was a soldier of the late
Civil war in the 169th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  In 1865 he located in
Kinderhook, Mich., and in 1866 moved to Steuben county, Indiana, where he
has since resided.  October 14, 1860, he was united in marriage with Lois A.
McIntyre, of Jefferson, Sandusky county, Ohio, who was ever a faithful wife
and loving mother, passing to her reward Feb. 17, 1908.  To this union nine
children were born, one son, Burton, dying in childhood, the others, Mrs.
Edith Stoddard, of Rising City, Neb., W.S., of Centralia, Wash., Wilton, of
Angola, Ind., Mrs. Elda Seeley, of Huntington, Ind., Mrs. Eva Keys, of
Hamilton, Ind., Mrs. Erdine Harbaugh, of Montgomery, Mich., and Ella and
Homer, of Fremont, Ind., also twenty-one grandchildren and three
great-grandchildren, two sisters and one brother are left to mourn.  Father
had been a patient sufferer for many months, and was most tenderly cared for
by his son Wilton and family in Angola, until a few weeks ago when he was
removed to Fremont where, surroundied by loving children, old friends and
neighbors he peacefully fell asleep.  Although he never made any profession,
he gave us many evidences of a complete surrender to the wil of God, and we
mourn not as those without hope.

Ind., Dec 13, 1914, conducted by the paster, Rev. Karl Carlson, from the
