Here is what Lemley work I've done so far. I do have more to add, but not now. We just had a 22 year old nephew to get killed due to a motorcycle accident.
We just got word on Jerry's son that the Dr. has said nothing else can be done, Feeding tube to be put in and Hospice will start Sunday, today.
I may take more time to add more obituaries that I've already typed and then I might not do anything for a while. I will not be researching anymore right now. I must see a lung specialist on Thursday about why I keep getting this terrible conjestion I've had. I've never smoked in my life but I did have family that kept our home very smoky and I sang for 13 years. I had my own dance band and sang three nights a week for 13 years. Well, we'll just see what the Cat scan says. I have been real tired.
Don't need any calls or want any worrying. God takes care of all in my eyes. I just want you to know that I will be doing only what I feel like doing for the next couple weeks. We may have to go to Florida any minute.
Here are the Lemleys and later I'll finish filling in the rest that I have.
By the way, We went to New River Gorge here in West Virginia and the trees are beautiful. Getting close to peak. The Bridge Day is this next Saturday Oct. 16th when they will be jumping off that tall bridge. We went to the botton and it is so beautiful. One of West Virginia's most precious places to go. Just like it's on top of the world.
OK here we go!

Dr. Guy L. Lemley, a well known and popular young dentist of Mt. Morris, this county, was fatally injured by falling from a building, on Tuesday morning, and died Wednesday at 9:45 AM, without having regained consciousness.
The facts concerning his injury are as follows:
About 8:30 Tuesday morning, Dr. Lemley was engaged in fastening a conductor near the roof of his two story building, on Mechanic street, where he had his office and rooms. The building has a double porch and he had climbed on top of the railing of the upper porch, at the corner of the house, to fasten the spouting. From this position he slipped and fell to the ground, a distance of sixteen feet. He had been noticed working at the spouting, but no one saw him fall. Mildred Lewellen saw him lying unconscious upon the ground, only three or four minutes after the accident occurred.
She called Thomas Giles and Clark Hickman, who carried him into his office. Drs. Jacob and G. W. Hatfield, Dr. G. M. Bradford and Dr. Miller were called. Later Dr. Hardigan, superintendent of the Morgantown hospital, was summoned. Dr. Lemley had sustained injury at the base of the brain and over the right ear, where a large contusion was found. An operation was considered, but this was deemed inadvisable by the physicians. It is thought that his head may have struck upon the pavement when he fell, as his body was lying near the pavement.
Dr. Lemley was about 36 years of age and was a son of Charles Lemley. He attended Waynesburg College and later completed a course in the dental department of the Western Pennsylvania, now Pittsburgh University. He was highly respected and had a large circle of friends.
He leaves surviving, his father, three brothers, Southey Lemley, of New York City, David Lemley, of Mt. Morris, and Freeland Lemley, of Kentucky, and one sister, Susan Lemley, at home.

A FATAL FALL
Dr. Guy L. Lemley, of Mt. Morris, fell about eight o’clock Tuesday morning, either from a ladder or the wainscoting of a second story porch, receiving injuries which proved fatal, Wednesday morning, May 3, 1916. Dr. Lemley was a dentist and some years ago bought the Jacob South property in Mt. Morris where had fitted up dental parlors. The building had a first-story and a second-story porch. The upper porch had a wainscoting around it about three feet high. Above this it was open. A few minutes before the accident the doctor was seen standing on top of this wainscoting working with the spouting. There was also a ladder standing with the top against the wainscoting. No one saw the accident and whether he slipped and fell from where he was seen standing or whether he was attempting to get upon the ladder or standing upon the ladder will perhaps never be known. When he fell the ladder fell also and the noise of the fall was heard by someone passing. The doctor had !

relatives.

Leah Headlee-Lemley was born August 31, 1822. She was the daughter of Charles and Mary Garney Headlee. Born on Shannon run, in Perry township, her early life was spent in that community. Long before the building of a church in the Shannon run vicinity, the itinerant Methodist Episcopal preacher conducted ser-vices in the neighborhood, either at the home of Abraham Delany or that of Eli Headlee. It was at a service on one of these occasions when Leah Headlee, a girl of thirteen years, was converted by giving her heart to the Savior and her name to the church. For more than three-quarters of a century she lived a consistent Christian life. Leah Headlee was united in marriage with David Lemley, Sept. 10, 1840. Mr. Lemley preceded his beloved wife to the better land by a duration of almost eleven years, departing this life March 24, 1901. To this union were born eight children, one of whom, Asbury, died in early childhood. Nannie Lemley Woodruff, wife of the Rev. Elwood Woodruff, of the East Ohio Conference of the Methodist Episcopal church, was called from labor to reward some twenty years ago. George Lemley, of Mt. Morris, heard and answered the call, "It is enough, come up higher," only a few short weeks before his beloved mother answered the summons, "come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Mrs. Lemley leaves to mourn her departure one sister, Mrs. Mary Woodruff, of California. Charles H. Lemley, the oldest of this family of children, survives his mother, also Mary J. Lemley Headlee, a daughter, Harvey Lemley, a son, Sarah Lemley Delany, a daughter of St. Leo, W. Va., and David Newton Lemley, the youngest son and child of the family, all of Mt. Morris, Pa., save the exception noted above.
The greater part of the married life of Mrs. Lemley was spent on the home in which she died, about one mile west of Mt. Morris, on one of those spacious bottom lands for which the valley of old Dunkard is so noted. Here at this spot so dear to the memory of so many "sorrowing not without hope" loved ones; here where this grand old stream strikes out boldly from the base of the almost precipitous hill making its wide circle about the fertile fields for a distance of a mile or more and returning to the same hill only a few hundred yards whence it left this protecting shelter; here surrounded by creek and hill with sentinels of oak, spruce and birch, as it were hemmed in from the outside world, yet where the most hospitable welcome was always accorded acquaintance and stranger alike, her relatives and friends, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren received blessing and happiness and good will unstinted. Truly this couple of pioneers (for such they may be termed) not only cleared the forest and cultivated the land, but laid well and deeply the foundation of Christian character, which leads to the highest ideal of manhood and womanhood. Here grandfather and grandmother Lemley spent the greater part of their married life, and here the bereft widow, mother and grandmother waited with loving patience the coming of her Lord. How oft she said to her loved ones, "I thought, yea even hoped during the night He would take me to Himself and home and the loved ones who have gone on before."
The life of Mrs. Lemley, which was drawing toward the century mark, was one of great activity and untiring service. For the past few years her strength, both in body and mind, had waned. During the winter she was seriously ill, but just previous to death, was thought to be better. On the morning of her demise she was taken suddenly worse and did not rally. As the day drew on and evening approached, the eventide, the setting sun in her life went down, not out, March 13, 1912, to rise and shine on a fairer shore. The funeral service was conducted on Friday, March 15, 1912, at 10 AM, in the Methodist Protestant church, at Mt. Morris, Rev. J. H. Mossberg, pastor, Rev. L. S. Anyill, of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, offered prayer; Rev. F. L. Teets, of the Methodist Episcopal church, read the scripture; Rev. Stewart, Mrs. Lemley's pastor, and pastor of the Buckeye Methodist church, of which the deceased was a member at the time of her death, preached the funeral sermon. The body was laid to rest by the side of the tomb of her husband, in Cedar Grove cemetery, Mt. Morris, her spirit having ere this ascended to God, who gave it. In the quiet of our home with the voices of our children ringing in our ears, and our mind throbbing with the happy memories of the past, we do not think of our departed one as dead, but that she "liveth and shall never die," liveth in a fuller and more beautiful sense than ever before. It would be unjust to say to the weeping ones, "weep not," but your tears should not only be those of sorrow, but those of joy as well.
