I love how historians have placed signs indicating where the different homes were located, including the surnames of the owners. My husband's grandfather Jacob Lohr owned a blacksmith shop in Esmond in the 1930s and may have sold it to Irene Aughenbaugh's father Asa Heabirland if this sign is correct and in successive ownership listing.

Lee Walls, 93, was born and raised in/by Esmond. He resides in his own home just 7 miles north of town. At this time he plans to attend--just like every other year. Many of his relatives attend as well.

My name is Bill Walls. My dad grew up in Esmond. his name Allan Walls. His Parents were Bill and Dorothy Walls. My dad told me so many stories about growing up in Esmond in the 30's. I believe Bill was a barber in town. I live in Nashville Tn. Would love to come to homecoming and see the land and people he loved so much. I have a couple of drawings that were given to him by Artist Harvey Dunn when he came to the area to find subjects to paint. Those drawings caused me to pursue art at an early age. Is the homecoming every year or every couple of years. Thank you for any information.

My great grandfather Frank Forrest Deming and his wife Berta Crandon Sheets lived in Esmond around 1901 and later. Does anyone know of him or any of his children or relatives . My fathers name was John Avery Deming and I think he was born there.
