I'm new to this and I've hit a wall. Any help would be appreciated.
My GGranfather was Patrick Horseman/Hosman Birth 09 OCT 1877 in Union County, KY Death 15 FEB 1912 in Morganfield, Union County, KY. His death certificate lists parents as Ida Batts and Steve Horseman. I'm trying to find out more information about Steve Horseman. This is the time that the family name changed. Some records say Horseman, some Hosman. The 1880 US Census of Hitesville, Union County KY lists Steve and Ida Horseman with children Patrick and Susie. Steve was born about 1854. I'm looking for information on his parentage. Family rumor has it that we came to Kentucky from Virginia.
