George Horsman of Sparta

George Horsman of Sparta

Surnames: horsman
I’ve found the death of George Horseman on the Death Indexes. He died on 28 Sept 1902, and his Obit says he was about 72 years old. He lived at Sparta, Monroe County. In the 1860 and 1870 census’s he says he was born ‘Atlantic Ocean’ and in 1880 and 1900 he says Canada.

I’ve seen that Wisconsin Death certificates may have parents names. Is anyone able to look up his death record to see if his parents are named. [image # 2174]

Likewise, there is a marriage of a Blanche E Horsman on 5 Jul 1895 to Milo Herbert Babcock [Vol 3 page 164]. Could this be George’s daughter.

The spelling may be Horsman or Horseman

Thanks for that information. I'd looked for George's marriage on Family search - but had missed the death details.
Unfortunately it seems his parents forenames were not on the death record.
Blanches marriage record was very helpful as it named her father - but it appears that her husband married again 7 years later.

If anyone has any other information about the family - do get in touch.
