Looking for help re: William Hindman
the 1880 census lists him as "gentleman", and birthplace in Ireland.
I'm trying to piece together a lifestory and genealogical facts.
What would a "gentleman" from Ireland do, be during 1880 Philly?
and how he might have wound up passing away in Ohio
In 1870 he was listed as a carpet manufacturer. By 1880 he may have sold his business or retired to let a son take over.

Or perhaps he was still manufacturing carpets.
