    1. [FLVOLUSI]new list home is FL-VOLUSIA
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Volusia county mailing list has been set up. In a few minutes, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list who wish to join the new group will be able to do so. I can not add members directly. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. If you don't find an invitation in your email you may also go to this site - https://groups.io/g/FL-VOLUSIA and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

    1. [FLVOLUSI]Status of the Volusia county mailing list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Volusia county mailing list has 58 subscribers. In light of this list closing on March 2nd, with the full knowledge of the list owner - Susan Penn Groover, I have set up a new home for this list. I've recently set up similar homes for other Florida Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, in a few minutes, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    3. Thanks for this explanation. Rootsweb was good and free. Like other good free resources money hungry grabbers take what so many people gave their time and effort to make, they take it for themselves and sell (our efforts) to others who are willing to pay.  What a shame.

    1. [FLVOLUSI]Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future.

    1. [FLVOLUSI] LUNSMAN Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of John and Will LUNSMAN which was taken at the Remillard Studio in Newburgh, NY. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with the two young boys likely about 6-8 years old at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research and thanks to a SMITH Family Researcher I was able to gather the following information regarding this family: William Henry LUNSMAN was b. 18 Sept 1874 and his brother John B. LUNSMAN was b. 22 Nov 1876, both were born in Cornwall, NY to parents John Daniel or Daniel John "Dan" LUNSMAN (b. Jan 1845 in New York) and Mary "May" A. EMSLIE (b. Jun 1846 in New York, NY to parents James EMSLIE Sr. and Jane WESTON-d. 1911). The couple had a third child, Janie LUNSMAN. John married Nellie May SMITH (b. 1876 in Long Island, NY to parents Orlando Gardiner SMITH and Mary Rebecca BLYDENBURGH) in 1900 and they had a daughter, Gladys M. LUNSMAN (b. 1903 in Cornwall, NY-d. 18 Sept 2003 in Pompano Beach, FL) who later married Thomas Graham TAYLOR in 1949, though it appears that they did not have any children. William married Caroline LUNSMAN (b. 1877) and they had two children, Daniel J. (b. 28 Jul 1911-d. 27 Aug 1987 in Volusia Co. FL) and Willis Lent (b. 15 Jun 1913-d. 11 May 1979 in Fort Pierce, FL) LUNSMAN. William's son Daniel married Florence V. REARDON (b. 18 Oct 1909 - d. 15 Jul 2001) in 1936 and it appears the couple may not have had any children. William's son Willis is indicated as married after 1940 but there is no information on children in family records. Census records provide the following details: 1880 census of Cornwall, NY: James D. EMSLIE, age 60, a Baker, born Scotland, parents born Scotland Jane EMSLIE, wife, age 60, Keeping House, born England, parents born England Richard EMSLIE, son, age 22, Journeyman Baker, born NY May LUNSMAN, dau, age 32, At Home, born NY William H. LUNSMAN, grandson, age 5, at School, born NY, parents born NY John B. LUNSMAN, grandson, age 3, born NY, parents born NY 1900 census of Cornwall, NY: Dan LUNSMAN, age 55, born Jan 1845, married 28 years, born NY, parents born Germany, a Carpenter Mary LUNSMAN, wife, age 53, born Jun 1846, married 28 years, 3 children/2 living, born NY, parents born Scotland/England William LUNSMAN, son, age 26, born Sept 1873, born NY, a Farmer John LUNSMAN, son, age 24, born Mar 1875, born NY, a Carpenter I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thank you, Shelley
