Lemas was one of the beat*koowi
colored men in Washington. At th.
time of his death he was employed 11
the offl m of the auditor for the ?nterin
Department. He was brought up as 1
barber and entered the service of Presi
dent Johnson. It is said that he ha.
shaved every President since tha' ?im*
whose face had to be attended to. Hi
was President Cleveland's fav< rite bat
ber, and when President M Kinley du
not shave himself, Lemas did the worV
for him. This was alwaya done aftei
government office hours, and Lemai
felt that he was honored in his repeated
selection for this duty. He would have
been much disappointed if he had noi
been permitted to shave the Presidents.
He was appointed to his position in the
g ivernmeut service by President John?
son, and was considered a good clerk.
He was a native of this city and lived
here until 1861.
