Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, folks!
I like to share the photos and data from my research with others, obviously, but I go to great expense with time and travel to obtain much of this, and I own many of the portrait photos, including original tintypes.

For this reason, I ask you for the courtesy of leaving my name attached as the original source of the material. When others view YOUR posting of my images and research on Ancestry or elsewhere they often want to contact the person who owns the image or did the research at the archives and other repositories. I can't help folks who can't reach me.
Cheers! Nancy

RE: William F. Osborn, 141928072
Thank you Nancy for getting me in gear, because I certainly needed to update his memorial. Also I absolutely hate sending anyone a decline for an edit, so I appreciate you being so gracious about it. If I learn of any more details of their time in Adams Co., I'll let you know.

William F. Osborn, 141928072
Hi Nancy - Wanted you to know reasons for declining edits of William's birth county and spelling of last name. William does have a headstone, which is spelled Osborn and same on his parents' headstones. Also, the 1911 marriage record to Ida, an 1892 biographical sketch, his 1890 Civil War pension application, 1880 census, 1875 marriage record to Emily, the 1870 and 1860 censuses and other places all have Osborn. The biographical sketch written in 1892 specifically states the Osborn family moved to Adams County in 1837 and lived there for 14 years before selling their land and moving to Brown County. There's no mention of Pike Co., but I'll definitely look into this further. I've made notation of this difference on William's memorial. Thanks for bringing it to my attention and for all you do as well. Take care.

Sorry, but I need a birthday source independent from that calculated from the age and death date on the stone. As stated in my profile, I don't calculate birthdates like that because of the high probability of error. Hope you understand.

Any information on Sydney Davey?
Anna Davey is my 2nd great grandmother and I have been doing research on the Davey family. I've been searching and searching for information on her brother, Sydney Davey and how/when/where he died. The only source I have found about Sydney is in the 1880 census. I would LOVE more information or sources on Sydney if you have anything. Thanks!

Whitney Family Genealogy

I was doing some "Whitney" entries and noticed that you have contributed some of the info. I just wondered how you are related to the Whitney's.

My dad was the son of Hubert Wood Whitney: Hubert's half brothers were Charles Percival and Frank Noriden Whitney: their children were my dad's cousins.
