About George Washington Place

He was a farmer. He was apparently named for his uncle Washington Place. He married in Richland County, Ohio in 1877, and about 1878 moved to Michigan with his parents. He served in Company E of the 15th Michigan Infantry (Michigan Military Records 15:135).

He was shown on the 1880 census with an S. C. Stringham, age 64, born in New York, in his household. The age of this man suggests that he might have been a father-in-law or grandfather.

George Place homesteaded two pieces of land totaling 49.12 acres in Ogemaw County, Michigan on 19 May 1886.

According to Laura Deonier on Wikitree, "He was born with the name George Washington Place but when he was 37 he married 17 year old Albertina Daemmer and he changed his middle name to (F.) My father and son of George Washington Place told me that George Washing Place did not want Albertina's father to find them since he was 20 years older and already had a large family with Jenni Pettit."

FamilySearch (2016) identifies Jennie Searl rather than Jennie Pettit as the wife of George W. Place.
