David See Death Record JPG Attached is a Death Certificate from Michigan for a David See (1818-1898) who I believe to be the brother of my 2x Great Grandfather Andrew See (1816-1901). Having difficulty deciphering Father's name. What I see is Hearnian See? The orgin of this family is German according to my Great Grandfather death William See (1849-1923). Any thoughts on the spelling of the Father would be appreciated.
Herman maybe? Maybe Harmon, Harman
Is there any connection between these 2 SEE Men http://www.looking4kin.com/group/ontariogenealogy/forum/topics/look...
Sorry all I haven't been on for awhile, other things keeping me busy. But from what I can see in my research, theses two men aren't related. I believe the spelling looks like Harmon; have seen it before but can't place it as yet. In my digging around I have run across the "See" name in a few different country's, not necessarily related to each other. If I find out differently I will let you know
Thanks for taking the time to look at David See death. Going on a hunch that David might be the brother to my 2xGreat Grandfather Andrew See.They were on the same Census in 1851&1861.
I transcribe war diaries so I am getting pretty good at reading old handwriting. I think the name is Harman - it has the same H as Heart in the cause of death and the same a in "man" as the word May.
I just wanted to say Thanks for looking at the death certificate and the explaination on how you determined the parent name.In the future I will look more closely at the hand writing.It would appear the many people feel it is Harman or Harmon. Thanks again Judie
Hi..I downloaded the image and it appears to say Harman. If you compare the capital H's in Harman and Hotel (at the bottom) you will see the extra loop and the word farming directly above has the same letters (a r m) the "a" is tightly written as it is in the rest of the words...... cheers
Hello! Therese Just wanted to say Thank You for taking a look.It does appear that the conclusion is Harmon.Since I last posted,I have learned that the eldest son was George Harmon See and there was a Harmonous See in New York Military. I am now working there trying to connect the New York branch to my Ontario Branch.Unfortunately for me the death did not list mother's name.So the search continues.Again Thank You your input is greatly appreciated.
No Problem...best of luck in your search... :o)
