Please note that most of the Lemon information is from a book entitled, "From the James River to the Hughes: an historical & genealogical record of the George S. Lemon & Nancy Gilliland family." The book was researched & edited by Marilyn Sims Vadakin & Charlotte Lemon Haught. It was compiled by Marilyn
Sims Vadakin & published by the Lemon Tree Press of Marietta, Ohio.

The first 6 children of Frederick Lemon & Mary Sea/See are named in Frederick Lemon's will. I have seen this will. Two of those children, Jacob Lemon & Thomas Jefferson Lemon, were named coexecutors of said will.

The other four children of Frederick Lemon are according to Marilyn Sims Vadakin's book, "From the James River to the Hughes..." The book mentions that Martin Lemon, one of Frederick Lemon & Mary Sea/See's sons, died unmarried & that his estate was appraised at $1,531.28. Also according to the book, an account was filed in Botetourt County, VA in March of 1850 listing Martin's siblings. I have not seen the account. The other four children are probably mentioned there.

The information on the marriage of Thomas Huffman & Margaret Lemon is according to a book by Anne Lowery Worrell that deals with early marriages of Botetourt County, VA.

The children of Thomas Huffman & Margaret Lemon are verified by a deed on file at the Jackson County, WV Courthouse. We were made aware of said deed by Jim Wise, a Jackson County researcher.

The marriages of Thomas Huffman & Margaret Lemon's children are found in Wes Cochran's "Jackson County WV Marriages 1831-1879" except for the nuptial of Mary Anne Huffman & Conrad Fisher. Information on their marriage came from Mary Anne's obit published in the Jackson Herald, a Jackson County newspaper.
The Jackson County marriages for Thomas Huffman & Margaret Lemon's children are filed under the surname Hoffman. The "C" may be incorrect on the transcription for Charles McClung Huffman's bride. It may be an "A" instead.

There is currently disagreement between respected researchers about whether Agnes Elizabeth Young, d/o John Young and Agnes Elizabeth Davis, was the wife of George Lemon. Some researchers believe Lemon's spouse was instead Mary Elizabeth Young & a totally different individual; while others believe Mary Agnes Elizabeth Young -- was a child named for her grandmother Maria Brunner & her mother Agnes Elizabeth Davis. We are presently hard at work attempting to verify/document the wife of George Lemon.

Invaluable research on the Thomas Huffman & Margaret Lemon family was provided by my cousin, friend & mentor Tim Spradling. This was, is & will always be a team effort.
