I am looking for records or information on my great-great-grandfather, William J. OSBORN. I believe he was born in August 1862 in Arkansas, United States. His wife's name was May and they had six children (Estella, Anna L., Robert C., Clara Gertrude, William B. and Claud). He is on the 1900 and 1910 Federal Census in Texas and he is in Oklahoma on the 1920 Federal Census. I would appreciate any information or advice on where to look. Thank you.
I am trying to trace the ownership history of my property on M216 in Marcellus, Michigan. I have very little information but I got the following from plat maps. It shows that an E Osborn owned 76 acres in the following years: 1858-1897. I would love any information on the land. Were there any buildings or was it just farm land? Did he raise a family there? I'm just curious.
