Addendum to the Lemmond Tree
After buying a month subscription (Knapper is going to kill me, but it's only 8 bucks a month) to Archives.com, I have learned that yes, Margaret was the Catherine listed in the 1860 as being born abt 1854, her parents were John Q Lemmond, who died in 1893, and Harriet Means.
The truly funny part is that she is the 3rd great granddaughter of William Marr Lemmond. I find that coincidence unnerving, to say the least. I had been on this trail right after I adopted Margaret's profile, but had rejected the information because I didn't have enough information. I was even emailed a woman on whose site I had found William Marr Lemmond to tell her of our possible relationship, based on the Marr name, and to ask her about Margaret. She wasn't able to tell me anything about Margaret and John, but she was very curious about the Marr name in her line and in mine.
Yes, folks, when you get right down to the nitty-gritty, we are all related. If not by blood, then by marriage.
