Source--LeMaster Family to Eastern Ky and Beyond--Johnnie LeMaster -------------------- Eleazer lived to see five generations of his family. The following was written in a family bible. "My grandfather was profoundly impressed, as a small boy, by his great grandfather, (Ealy), who was born before the American Revolution. His father and grandfather had told him a great deal about the courage and physical prowess of his great grandfather. He had vivid memories of the old man. These memories were confirmed in his mind by the stories he had been told. Eleazer was justly proud of his sons and grandsons. These men, as a general rule, were able to read and write in an age when public schools were not widespread, to say the least. They tended to be good in mathematics. They were very skilled with their hands, being able to build their own houses and furniture. They were good managers, being thrifty but not greedy and their neighbors as well as mountain wayfarers liked very much to get their feet under a LeMaster table. They were very independent and would rarely work for anyone but themselves.

His grave was removed from the original intermentlocation during the Paintsville Lake Project.
