Looking for information on William Harvey BLACKMAN who was born in 1863, perhaps in Bridgeport. He died July 6, 1931 in NYC. . He was a cook in the National Guard and a Chef at Orlans Point Restaurant in East Norwalk. He married Martha Jane OAKES who was born in 1859 and died in 1926.. Their children: George Edward, Marion, Emily, Helen, Wilbur, and May. It's possible his father is Treat BLACKMAN. I would like anything on William Harvey BLACKMAN: full date of birth, where he was born and anything regarding his parents This line also may go back to Elijah who was born Dec. 1, 1792 and married Sophia Joslin.
