George W Holsman, need proof he was father of Grace Holsman

Classification: Query
Surnames: Holsman McCabe Holtzman Felton
George Washington Holsman b 1843 Senecaville Ohio d 1892 Guthrie County, Iowa, m 1869 Guthrie, Co Iowa Caroline Elizabeth Felton b 1843 Indiana d 1911 Guthrie County Iowa.
Looking for proof George Washington Holsman is the father of Grace Erma McCabe b 30 Apr 1880 d 1965 Creston, Ia (m 1896 IA Clement McCabe b 1874 d 1942).

Grace is listed on both 1880 census and on birth index as "Alice". I don't know if they were unsure of her name for a while, or if the census taker was drunk... but there was no "Alice", and I need proof of parentage for Grace.
Wedding license lists only Grace's mother, because her father was dead by then (killed in Rock Island Train accident). Can't get original birth record beause Guthrie County courthouse burned down, destroying records.
So far have been unable to locate death record.
Hoping to find Bible or other family records.
