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.

He might have died before 1900 when his wife appears on the census in the houshold of their son.

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