Lounsbury Lingo You will notice a wide variety of surname spellings associated with the Lounsbury Tree. The most common spelling is “Lounsbury” though “Lounsberry” and “Lounsbery” are also prevalent. In 99% of researched cases, Canadians and Americans with these surname spellings are linked by common ancestors: Richard Lounsbury and Elizabeth (Pennoyer) Lounsbury of what is now Rye, NY, who were married there in 1670. There are many other surname variations who fit our extended family tree, including Lansbury (though apparently not the famous actress Angela Lansbury), Lainspeary, and Lonsberry. For simplicity, we use the letter “L” to denote the surname regardless of its spelling. Hence the phrasing “L” Tree at the top of this page.

Lounsbury Shoots at Florida Gulf Coast University In spite of the headline this was not another case of a school shooting. This was David Lounsbury demonstrating to his advanced criminalistics class what blood spatter looks like. David is an Assistant Professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, Fort Myers Florida and an expert in such subjects as Forensic Studies and Crime Scene Analysis, Military and Civilian Criminal Justice Issues, Foreign and Domestic Law Enforcement Issues, Terrorism, CounterNarcotics, Executive Protection. He carries our such real world demonstrations with his classes to show what he teaches in practical terms. David is descended from John Lounsberry (1799 – 1855) more about whom later.

Fred C. Lounsberry – Crescent Embossing Company Of the more than 50 quality Independence Day sets of postcards published in the early years of the 20th century by two dozen or so American and European firms, none are more interesting or patriotic than those by Fred C. Lounsbury and his Crescent Embossing Company. As a young man, Lounsbury (1857-1917) spent nearly twenty years in the paper novelty business, mainly as a salesman, innovator and advertising specialist. Then, in 1896, he founded the Crescent Embossing Company in Plainfield, New Jersey, as a maker and supplier of all sorts of cardboard goods to the trade. Within five year, the firm was working out of a large building of more than 10,000 square feet and employing close to 50 people. Products included calendars, labels, advertising goods and, by 1907, souvenir postcards. Most of Lounsbury's postcard sets have four cards each, a very unusual number and a radical departure from what was a common practice by publishers on both sides of the Atlantic. For those sets that are numbered - and many Lounsbury sets are not - such designations are found on the picture side. The series number is followed by a dash and the card number. Two of his cards are shown here, he would appear to an ancestor of Mark Terhune Lounsbury more about whom below.

Who is his Father? John Lounsbury (1799 – 1855) John is one of the strays that we cannot tie back to Richard and Elizabeth. This is what we have about him and some of his descendants.

At an early age, Mr. Lounsbury was sent to the school at Pleasantside, where he studied a few years, leaving afterwards to help on his father's farm. At the age of twenty-one, Mr. Lounsbury went west to Kansas and worked on a farm for four years. Saving his money and returning to Peekskill he started in business for himself as a contractor. A few years later Mr. Lounsbury began cutting ice and gradually increased his business. As a contractor Mr. Lounsbury has had some large contracts. The excavating of the grounds of Edward Livingston, at Manitou, was under Mr. Lounsbury's supervision; also the grounds of John N. Tilden. The excavating for the Guardian Building, the Flatiron building and the grading for High Street are also specimens of work done by Mr. Lounsbury. He organized the Lounsbury Ice Company, which was later changed to the Lounsbury & Sons Co., and furnished ice to consumers for a number of years past. On November 25, 1884, Mr. Lounsbury was married to Elizabeth Brown, daughter of Oscar and Martha (Hunt) Brown, of Peekskill, by the Rev. David Murdock, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church.

Queries My sister recently bought four serigraphs by the artist Richard Lounsbury. Two of them came from a gallery in Houston, Texas, and were acquired by that gallery about 20 years ago. Does anyone have any information on this artist? Thanks! From: Priscilla Lounsbury Raino Address: 106 Lakeside Road ; Peru, NY 12972; Email: [email protected]ter.net I own an oil painting signed by "I. V. Lounsbery 1889". It is a beautiful scene of a farm house, fenced in yard with animals (cows and sheep), a horse and carriage in the foreground and a train running behind the house and barn in the back ground. Can you possibly provide more information on the artist and if it is a past member of your extended family? Thank you, Roy Layton email: [email protected]

The Genealogist's Psalm Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray; It maketh me to lie down and examine half-buried tombstones. It leadeth me into still Court Houses, it restoreth my ancestral knowledge. It leadeth me in paths of census records and ships' passenger lists for my surname's sake. Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries and microfilm readers, I shall fear no discouragement; for a strong urge is within me; the curiosity and motivation they comfort me. It demandeth preparation of storage space for the acquisition of countless documents; it anointest my head with burning midnight oil, my family group sheets runneth over. Surely birth, marriage, and death dates shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of a family-history seeker for ever. --Wildamae Brestal (received from Shannon Calladine)
