  1. Just trying to get information, my great grandfather x5 was John Lemacks born in 1745 , married Eliza Ann Haynes. Any information would be helpful.

    1. I remember seeing the Lemacks house on “the farm” when I was little. It’s torn down now. When we were children and would be there at dusk, we thought there were ghosts. We were told a story about someone being bitten by a rabid fox and since there was no treatment back then, the person was chained in the room until they died.

  2. That was my great-grandfather’s house! I have interesting memories of it as it had much dark wood inside and was a bit scary for us little kids. I remember attending one of my great-aunts funerals that was held in one of the rooms. There was also a joggling board in the back yard that we would play on. I’m glad it is being maintained.
