Ichabod Horsman died on Dec. 4, 1915, in East Nissouri Township on lot 6, concession 11. Age 81 yrs., 9 mos., 18 dys. Burial at St. Marys (in Perth County). Parents Dennis Horsman and Laura Hall. Physician Dr. McGougan. Informant Mrs. I. Horsman of Thamesford.

Thamesford is the family's post office. We find confirmation of this in the 1907 Farmer's Directory for Huron, Middlesex and Perth, Union Publishing Co., Ingersoll. Three townships of Oxford County are included in this, one of them being East Nissouri. This places Ichabod's family at Concession 11, lot 6, in East Nissouri and names Thamesford as the post office. A short perusal of this directory places the Horsman properties of three generations only a little east of Thamesford and not far from St. Mary's in Blanshard Township, Perth County, where Ichabod and brother Charles were buried.
