I'm having difficulty finding a definition for “Firesmith”. It's not in HISCO, and google searches just return numerous results for Donald Firesmith followed by stories about people named Smith being fired or being involved in fires. Record is for George Wesley Seaman. Is it possible this is incorrect transcription? Moved to illegible category.
Axeman. Definition: “A person who works with an ax”. Dictionary.com: “a man who wields an axe, esp to cut down trees” (Wood/Lumber related?)
Use Logger, 63110 or Other Loggers, 63190 instead of Lumberman, 63116 which isn't in HISCO. Possible Lumberman also means Working Proprietor (Wholesale or Retail) ??
