Ralph: Today I went to the county clerks office and found the following;

 Wedding date:: Dec. 25, 1882 Grand Rapids, Mi.
 John Dexter Osborn, blacksmith, born N.Y. 21years old  Elizabeth Massey born Kalamazoo Mi.16 years old.
 Witnesses: Joshua Henshaw, Charlotte Henshaw, residents Paris Twp. Parents names not listed.
         This is all listed in Book 6  page 259  Weddings
 I am still at a loss as to how John Dexter being born in 1849 could be only 21 years old in 1882.  Eliz. birth date would then be 1866.  
Possibly a mistake on the application or a fabrication as to his age. This is all I could find .                   Dick Osborn 8/27/08

Dick Osborn was also from a skilled Blacksmith family. Read his book.

The Osborn Clan and history
is full of folk lore with stories and roles in early English history.
We prefer to follow the solid tree of documented facts as we collected them using cousin information.
We do know of places in Connecticut and England with Osborn names on them.
Sure we love the stories but the linkage offers no confirmation with our facts thus far. We confirm the Isle of Wight is fun as our heritage.
The line beyond the early Ashford, Kent, England names of John Osborn b1468 and son Richard Osborn b1488.


Osborn History Isle of Wight

Our pedigree in the Osborn family tree started in Ashford Kent England.

Osborn US began, for us, in East Hampton, Long Island and then moved to CT and upstate New York.

We find one historical document from the East Hampton time.

General Notes: East Hampton History, 1953, page 490 indicates neither Judge Hedges nor other genealogists mention any wife of Joseph 3 earlier than Mary, dau. of William and Hannah Stratton Hedges whom he m. 1704; but it seems quite likely that he married earlier. A "Mary Talmage" is mentioned in his will made April 26, 1739, proved 1746 as a wife of Joseph; in Sept. 1696 the "wife of Joseph" died; and Elizabeth, dau. of Joseph, m. Dec. 6, 1711, Thomas Baker Jr. By Mary Hedges, b. 1672, d. Aug. 2, 1752 he had children Joseph, Jeremiah, Mary, Danial Baker Jr.; Thomas. Joseph 3 like his father, held various Town offices.

Rev. Nathaniel Hunting set down in the E.H. Church Records: "2 Oct. 1743, Joseph Osborn son of Thomas Osborn, Deceased, sunk down and died in ye meeting house just after morning prayer was begun abt a quarter after 10, aged almost 83 years, he never spoke a word but expired at once."

Then on August 2, 1752: "Died ye Widow Osborn, aged 81 and mother of Jeremiah, Joseph, and Thomas Osborn. Six persons have died in less than Six Days. Never did East Hampton know the like. O that for holiness to yt there never were the like."

Joseph 3 left to his son, Deacon Joseph 4, the homestead now Maidstone Arms property

Back to our Cousins today

Both Jerry and Dick have agreed to make what they submitted as a Book public and open. However, the private sections remain.

Ralph: Here are the copies of the Indian  carving that John Dexter carved and sent to my grandfather. I am sending 3 different pictures.  This time with no typing showing thru the pictures.  If you need the write up about the ship the wood came from let me know.
Also I can't remember if I every sent you a copy of the letter that John Dexter sent to my grandfather concerning the death of their father.  If not and you want a copy I will gladly send it to you.  It is not in the best of shape, because of the age of the letter.
 
                                                               Dick

The Osborn are very creative people as shown by the use of famous wood to create images and given to their children for posterity. Dick was lucky enough to have a family that saved such a work of our family artist John Dexter Osborn.  I must say my father Ralph Waite Sr was a very good artist and this Osborn family heritage maybe the source of this artistic dna gene. We present this work as a sample of what is left to us. There maybe more if Dick can find it.

Yes end both the write up and letter. Ralph 03/29/08

Consider all of the craftmenship in your 50 years of blacksmith trade as art for the future generations to see. Don't leave it in the dust - your life work was an art - even if you just viewed it as work. think of your Osborns grandkids. So glad you can still contribute. You may not know how important each minor data saving is as the future clues for your ancesty.

Jason's records show DSO 1826 birthdate.) On the back of the picture I found it stated:  To Chas (Osborn) > Dexter Schuyler Osborn 63 years old .  then the date 1893.

On the back of the picture of Sally Ann ( there was also a little girl on the picture that I cropped off-   named Rose Uhl)  it stated   " Brother  - mother send this picture to you have you ever seen a prettier little girl than Rose?"    To the best of my knowledge Sally 'Ann's daughter was Chloe who married Charles Uhl and they had 3 children,  Charles Dexter,  Marie and Mabel .  Marie Married Ross Timmerman, Mabel married a man named Gotham. Charles wife was Fern , but I don't remember her maiden name. 11/8/02        Dick Osborn
 

I will copy the pictures all on one page and send them to both you and Jerry Osborn.  Maybe between the three of us we can figure out who these people are.   I just got these pictures in the last 3 days.  One of my nephews had this old album and just recently loaned it to me and lo and behold there were the pictures of both Dexter S. and Sally Ann Osborn and this both surprised and please me greatly.   11/7/02 Dick

Not much.  All I know of my own knowledge is, that picture has written on the back of it, in my greatgrandmother's hand,
"Caroline Rockwood
Hart Osborn's sister
Angola, Ind"
(or maybe it's Augusta, I'm not sure)

(or maybe it's Augusta, I'm not sure)

and search for Phineas Osborn, which is what I did, you will find several versions of this family, and I thought the best was that of a woman named Rosa Lee Trupp <gypsyr@quicktel.com  whose tree is at

(careful, this may come through email as two lines and if it does you must be sure to get it all into your destination window.)

She lists the children of Phineas A, including Hart, and also including a Caroline P, b 1827, as the oldest sister.  So this confirms independently that he had such a sister.  I wrote to Ms Trupp and she did not answer so I looked elsewhere and eventually found Dick, who I assume gave you the picture.

Family Group 4

Probable Descendants of Thomas Osborne and Mary Goatley of Ashford, Co. Kent, England

 

 

Caution, Warning, Disclaimer:  The ancestral lines shown below are the ancestors that each project member, highlighted in yellow, BELIEVES to be their ancestors.  Standards of proof or evidence used by each member may vary, and documentation for each ancestor may vary.  These listings alone should not be taken as proof of ancestry; they are shown here to facilitate the finding of a common ancestor by project members or by others who may wish to test to see if their ancestral lines connect to one of the members.  For more information, please contact the individual members at the email addresses listed below.

 

This family group now has twenty-five people and is the largest Family Group in the project.  With the new members in this group, their results, and the additional connections to Thomas m Mary Goatley, there is more evidence that everyone in this group is related in some way to this immigrant Thomas Osborne.  So the name of this group has been changed, as above, as had been contemplated earlier.

 

Three groups now know how they are related between themselves:  A group of seven, with Gerald, Nancy, Wayne, Bartley, Mark, Daniel and Darlene, and Ralph Waite and Dick Osborn now have their ancestors all the way back to John Osborn of Ashford, Kent, England, ancestor of the immigrant Thomas Osborne m Mary Goatley.  Joseph M Osborn and Gerald E Osborne know how they are related; and John P and Denver J Osborne know how they are related.  The remaining people still do not know how they connect to anyone else, but with the dna results consistently indicating that they are descendants of this Thomas, there can be only a few missing generations to find. 

 

Several people in this FG have had the 25- and 37-marker tests; see the Alleles table.  This has provided enough information to establish a most likely Ancestral Haplotype by taking the majority value for each allele, and I have added a line for that in the Alleles table. However, with the latest members, the majority vote for the value on Allele 391 now favors a value of 12 for the most likely value of that Allele in the ancestral haplotype.  This now makes David M Osborne the sole bearer of the 37-marker Ancestral Haplotype, and each other person has at least one mutation from it.  Each person can now compare their results to the Ancestral Haplotype to get a better understanding of the mutations in their line. 

 

The hypothetical scenario that was previously worked out to explain the dna test results is still shown to illustrate the approach, but needs to be reworked in light of more recent members and their tests.

 

 

Ancestral Lines

 

Below are the individual ancestral lines as far back as they are known.  Hyperlinks are to that persons listing in the Linked Family Records at Osborne Origins. 

 

 

Descendants of John Osborne

 

There is now a large group who can trace their lines back to Thomas and earlier.  Previously, Nancy and Wayne had their lines back to Jeremiah m Mary Newman, but could go no further.  Recent research by Joe and Lee has convinced them that the father of this Jeremiah is likely to be another Jeremiah which is was previously listed as two separate people.  At the suggestion of Lee, I have listed both of these Jeremiah’s as the father of Jeremiah m Mary Newman.  See Note 3 below for more on this situation.  This allows the connection of Nancy and Gerald’s lines to those four going back to Thomas m Mary Goatley and now connects the people shown below.  See the Notes for caveats.

Note 1:  Lee Osborn has identified primary sources of information back to Thomas Osborne-12724, but not earlier.  The ancestors of Thomas shown here are believed by some people to be his ancestors and are shown here with this caveat until better documentation is found.

 

Note 2:  According to research that Gerald Osborn, Joe Osborn, and Lee Osborne have done, the records are clear enough about who Phineas’ (b.1760-1770) relatives are to know from circumstantial evidence that Ephriam Osborn (b Abt 1690) is his grandfather. The problem is that Ephraim and Mary had three sons whose families aren't known -- John, Daniel, and Phineas (b. 1735) -- and currently there are no records giving a clue as to which of these is father of Phineas (b. ca1766).   In order to continue Gerald’s ancestors as far back as is known, I have listed the three possibilities for Phineas’ father, and then continued with Phineas’ known grandfather.

 

Note 3:  The problem at this point is that there is primary documentation for two Jeremiah Osborn’s, now shown separately as Jeremiah Osborne-12665, and Jeremiah-5482 on Lee’s Osborne Origins.  There is documentation that Jeremiah-12665 is the father of Jeremiah-4828 m Mary Newman, who is Nancy and Wayne’s ancestor, but no indication of who his father is. (See Lee’s comment for Jeremiah-12665.) So Nancy and Wayne were stalled at this point.  On the other hand, Jeremiah-5482 is known to be the son of Jeremiah-5389 who is the son of Stephen m Sarah Stanborough and connects from there to Thomas m Mary Goatley.  In view of the dna results it is believed likely that these two Jeremiahs are actually the same person so I have shown them both here with this caveat until better documentation resolves this issue.
