so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Jesse Osborn enlisted as a private 8-15-1812 in company commanded by Joseph Redding in the KY Militia. Discharged 3-4-1813. 1-13-1859 declaration for minor America Osborn, born 10-5-1838, dau. of Jesse Osborn, given in Daviess Co. MO. Witnessed by James Owings and Abner Osborn of Daviess Co. MO. A Biography of Fountain Co. IN has W.M. Osborn, native of IN born 3-9-1823, son of Jesse and Margaret Orr Osborn, who settled in Troy township in Fountain Co. in 1824. In 1839, Jesse moved to MO, where he died in 1845. Mrs. Osborn died in 1847. W.M. returned to Fountain Co. and in 1845 married Mary E. Dickens, dau. of Abraham and Elizabeth Dickens. They have seven children: Margaret, wife of A. DeHaven; Effie, wife of I.M. Brown; Homer; America; Josephine; Edward; and Emma. His father was a soldier in the War of 1812 and probably the only survivor of the American troops that were engaged in the battle of River Reason. History of Fountain Co. IN says Abner DeHaven is the son of Jacob and Susan Osborn De Haven, whose settlement in Fountain Co. dates to 1828. In 1868 he married Miss Margaret Osborn; I deduce that to be the daughter of W.M. and Mary Dickens Osborn. Jacob DeHaven married Susan Osburn 19 August 1830; Susan was born 8 January 1810 to William Osborn born 10 January 1764 and his wife, Elizabeth Redden, whom he married 20 February 1800. She was born 20 March 1783. Siblings to Susan include: Peggy, born 14 Jan. 1801, married James Sherrill 17 June 1819; Abner, born 11 Dec. 1802, m. Eliza Glass 3 Aug. 1826; Ipsley, born 1 Dec. 1804, married Granville Adkins 13 July 1828; Katharine, born 30 August 1806; William, born 6 Nov. 1807; John Taylor, born 21 Sept. 1811, married 1 May 1834 to Permelia DeHaven; Ruben Lyle, born 17 March 1813; Martha Ann, born 8 Dec. 1815; Eliza Curnela, born 19 Dec. 1819, married George Glascock 21 January 1840. According to Quarterly Boulder Genealogical Society Vol. 19, #1, Feb. 1987, Wm. Osborn was 69 and living in Fountain Co. IN when he applied for pension 13 March 1833, claiming he volunteered in 1779 Burke Co. NC as a mounted militia man under Capt. Wm. Adams and Lt. Wm. Simpson; at the end of three months he was discharged. In 1780 he was drafted as a private militia man in the company of Capt. Wm. Faber under Col. MOffitt and discharged after serving two 3-month terms. He was stationed at Turkey Cove at the head of Catawba River in Burke Co. and lived in Burke until 1801, when he moved to Scott Co. KY, then moved to Fountain Co. in 1827. Bennett Osborn which see above supported his claim and he was given a pension. James Adkins testified he lived next door to the family for about 25 years in Scott Co. and that he moved to Fountain Co. in the fall of 1829 and recognized Elizabeth as the widow of William. Another descendent of Jesse appears in History of Daviess and Gentry Cos. MO: W.T. Osborn born 11-14-1862 around Gallatin. His parents were Thomas J. and Susan A. Peniston Osborn. Thomas J. Osborn was born in Fountain Co. IN and came to Daviess Co. in the 1840's. His parents, Jesse Osborn and his wife, settled at Winston at the same time that Thomas J. Osborn came to Daviess Co. Thomas J. Osborn was married the first time to Miss Owen and they had four children: James, dec'd; Robert O., now a res. of Los Angeles, CA; Homer A., dec'd; and Alice, now Mrs. Harvey of St. Louis. The second marriage was to Susan A. Peniston. She was born 1838 to William P. and Miss Walls Peniston, both of KY. Thomas J. and Susan A. had the following children: W.T.; Mrs. Frank Casey; Jesse B.; Mrs. W.W. Armentrout; H.C.; Mrs. W. S. Townsend, dec'd; and Mrs. Iva Schofield. Thomas J. died in 1876 at the age of 52. Still another relative appears in Brant & Fuller's History of Daviess Co. MO 1888: Robert S. Osborn is a native of Boone Co. MO, born 10-31-1826. In April 1841 he went to Daviess Co. with his parents, natives of Scott Co. KY, both dead. Mr. Osborn married Maria Osborn 3-14-1850 and had five children: Mary E. 3-11-1851, 11-22-1856, Parmelia E. 1-30-1856, Richard J. 1-8-1859, Ruth A. 2-6-1863, Stella L. 5-28-1866, 1-13-1867. Mrs. Osborn died 4-15-1872 and was bur. in Victoria Cemetery. On 2-2-1873 he married Mrs. Agnes Reid, producing Dudley C. 12-9-1873 and Clay 9-28-1879.
