Information for family of Carl August FORSMAN, Finland to Washington, 1845-1922
Posted by: Janice Fenter (ID *****7098) Date: March 22, 2012 at 13:31:17

I'm not a family member, but found an obituary for Carl FORSMAN in the Ilwaco Tribune, Ilwaco, Pacific County, Washington, Friday, October 6, 1922.

In addition to the obituary, I've found and added some information from census, military, and death index records, which I believe belong to members of this family. The spelling of the FORSMAN surname has been found spelled several ways. Hopefully this will help family researchers.

Obituary:
