Thank you that was helpful.

However, I think you have the Joseph here:

Joseph Osborn's family is given in his will as wife Rebecca (D Patterson) and children James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Rebecca Jane, Mary E, Joseph B, Sarah, and John.

Hmm... What was I smoking? These are the grandchildren of Joseph Osborn, not his children.

Greg wrote:Joseph Osborn's family is given in his will as wife Rebecca (D Patterson) and children James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Rebecca Jane, Mary E, Joseph B, Sarah, and John.


His children were John (1812-1897), Samuel M (1814-1885), Osman (abt 1814-?), William H (1817-1901), Andrew (1820-1880), Mary B (abt 1825-?), and Elizabeth M (after 1825-?). I should be able to figure out Elizabeth's birth year from when her guardianship ended, but I haven't done that yet. I've seen that other people have him having a son Hugh, but I haven't seen him anywhere in the court records, unlike the rest of his children.
