Trying to determine if this is my great great grandfather

+3 votes
My great grandmother was Daisy Hartman Peeler (Hartman-2326). I only know that her parents were William A Hartman and Delilah J. Hartman.

I'm trying to determine if this William A Hartman could be her father. While Daisy was born in NC, her husband's family originally came from the Philadelphia area. His birth year would be about right as well, since Daisy was born in 1893. He actually has a daughter listed that was born in 1892.

If anyone is able to provide additional information that would either help confirm or rule out whether this is the same William A Hartman, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you. This, along with your other posts, rules out the linked profile as being the same person.
Definitely not the same person. Your family line is easy to follow back. The 1870 census listed gives you a good start.
Yep. I think I've been able to trace back a good amount on my father's side. Right now if I pull up a family list for my father, back to 15 generations, I get 138 people. I've done much better on my mother's side though... back 15 generations I get 457 people!

I also have yet to find anyone that appears to have much of a history on my father's side. On my mother's side, it appears I'm a direct descendant of at least 14 of the 25 surety barons, a Barby coast pirate, and a good number of knights and other members of the nobility.

Thank you! Even having his middle name and her maiden name might be enough to get me going again!
There's no profile manger for Mr. Hartman. Maybe you would want to add to it.
If I determine that he is my ancestor, I definitely will.

Go to Select "Search" then "Records." I searched for Name: Daisy Louise Hartman, Event: Birth, Place: North Carolina, Event Range: 1890-1896 and I got a few search results that will help you answer your questions. And you can search on other names, dates, etc.

I  heartily approve of this type of answer. It not only tells the questioner where to find the answer, it teaches them how to use in the future.
And here's a marriage record for William and Delilah:
Thank you very much! I had actually started playing around on there after one of the earlier comments, and your comment helped as well.

I was actually able to find out additional information on some other ancestors using that site as well!
