George & Delilah Morseman Bishir lived next door to Jonathan and Molly Morseman Ruse (who run a hotel in Lynchburg, Ohio) in 1880. (Molly is Delilah's sister) Delilah lived with her youngest daughter, Elva, in New Vienna from 1910 and then in Cincinnati until her death.

No stone was found with her husband's stone in F&AM.

Research:
DNA test results show matches between descendants of the Morsemans and descendants of Delilah's grandparents, Daniel Milton Fox and Nancy Bowman.
Genealogical evidence leads us to believe that Delilah was the daughter of Levi and Rachael Morseman. There are no other likely candidates in the US in the 1850 and 1860 censuses.

Although her death certificate lists her father's name as "Sylvester Morsman". There is only one Sylvester Morseman in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, and he has no children named Delilah. He lived near Levi in 1850 and moved to Illinois shortly thereafter. A newspaper story in the 1886 Highland Weekly News reports "Mr. Mossman and wife, who went to Illinois forty years ago, returned on Saturday on a visit to his sisters, Mrs. J. Ruse [Mollie Morsman Ruse] and Mrs. George Bishir [Delilah Morsman Bishir]."

Brown Co. is quite close to Highland Co. and in 1860, in Brown Co., there is a Delilah Morsman (age 11) living with Levi's widow, Rachael (age 54), and Mary (age 8). This would appear to clinch it.

Alternate spellings: Morseman, Mossman.
