Susan, Your message was a pleasant surprise.I had sent that query you referred to in 2003, and since then, have found additional information.If you have access to the IOWA STATE 1925 CENSUS for Boone Co., IA, Susan (Osgood) Whitmore 72 yrs., b, in Texas, lists her parents' name.Her father was Simion Osgood b. New York, and her mother was Kathryn Neal, no b. place given; the parents were married in Pittsburgh, PA. Since I found that info., I have located Simion on different US RETURNS FROM MILITARY POSTS, 1806-1916. Although someone had Simion Osgood killed in the Indian Wars of late 1850s, I have never found any proof that he was. My connection is through a daughter-in-law.Susan Osgood Whitmore, daughter of Simeon Osgood, is her 3rd gt-grandmother.
Are you researching both the Osgood and Whitmore families?Looking forward to hearing more.
