I am trying to find parents of Isaac Osman from Shamokin, PA, Northumberland Co.
He was born in Nov 1846 and died 12 Nov 1906. I have tons of info on his Wife Harriet S. Bordner, and his children,Emma M, Minnie N, William F, Alice L, but I can't seem to find any info about his parents/grandparents.
His wife Harriet was remarried to a Frank E. Osman/Osmun after his death so it is possible that he and Frank were related.
The rumor is that either Isaacs dad or grandfather came from Turkey but I cant prove this either.
In 1860 there are 2 records for Isaac Osman in Pennsylvania, 1 born abt 1855 and 1 born abt 1848.
I thought the 1848 one was probably the one I wanted as the cencus says: Household: John Osman 40 PA, Mary A Osman 40 PA, John Osman 16 PA, Isaac Osman 12 PA, Mary Miller 15
But, One reason I cant call John a positive match as his father is because according to familysearch.org, the Isaac Osman born in 1848 birth and death date do not match up with the the Issac I am looking for.
Familysearch has an Isaac born 21 MAY 1848 Harrisburg, Dauphin, Pennsylvania and a death of 16 DEC 1880. My Isaac was born November 1846 and died 12 Nov 1906. I know this info to be correct based on his headstone and cemetery records in Shamokin, PA.
I am looking for a document that says who Issac's dad was before I call it a possitive match. So far I havent found any record of Isaac that lists his dads name.
