I am looking for Lemuel Norman, born in Virgina about 1785. I have found out that he died in Parke County Indiana in 1833. He had an estate sale and had Isaac Norman as his "executor", however, he doesn't name him as a son. One Catherine Norman bought items from the sale as did Isaac Norman.
Lemuel was in Portland Mills by 1821. He bought land there in 1821 and also in 1825 per land records at Parke County.
He had 10 children with Catherine Bassitt/Bassett of Kentucky. I think all or most of his children were born in Kentucky but I can't identify which county as there are several Lemuel Norman's listed in various counties in the KY census for 1810.
The only confirmed child is William born ca 1807, KY, married Nancy Hatfield 1832 Parke Co. They in turn had eight children all born in Union Twp, Parke County, IN. Howard, died as infant; Mary Jane Norman m. Daniel Sappenfield; Oliver P., m. Araminta Neal; George W., m. Nancy Spurgeon; Sarah E. m. Walter Wilson; Rachael A. married George Switzer, William H., married Letitia Ann Berry; Dr. James I., marrried 1)Melanie Beck 1878, 2)Harriett McCammon 1886, 3)Delia Whitted 1909)
One Isaac Norman was in Parke County Indiana about 1818 surveying land, but I don't know if this is a son, brother, father or no relation at all.
It looks like this Lemuel could be the son of Isaac and Hannah Gage Norman of Spencer County, Kentucky, but I don't want to assume that until I have positive proof. If indeed he is their "rightful" son, I have a lot of confirmed genealogy to add to this family tree.
