Seeking parents and vital records for
Roswell OSBORN, and his wife
Emily Jane ARNOLD.

Family lore claims he is son of another Roswell, but I
have no proof.

Almost all of the following data are from family members
long deceased, or from an old family bible.

Roswell:
Reportedly b. 21-Oct-1818 in "Cayuga, NY".
Reportedly d. 20-Apr-1885, Milford, Dickinson, IA
Reportedly m. Emily Jane ARNOLD 26-Jun-1842, Hannibal, Owego, NY

He had a farm in Freedom, Cattaraugus County, NY from
???? to 1872. In 1872 he sold the farm and moved to Milford,
Iowa, where he became a "platter", i.e. one who subdivides
land for homes.

Emily:
Reportedly b. 26-Dec-1822 in "Cayuga, NY".
Reportedly d. 09-Feb-1900 in Flandreau, Moody, SD.

No vitals, no obits, no wills found in Cattaraugus nor
Cayuga counties. No census hits in Cayuga county.

They had five sons:

Calvin Warren OSBORN b. 28-Mar-1843, Conquest, Cayuga, NY
d. before 20-Jan-1920, implied by
sequence of death records in family Bible.

Phidelphius OSBORN b. 10-Apr-1845, Freedom, Cattaraugus, NY
d. unknown

Joseph W. OSBORN b. c1846, Freedom, Cattaraugus, NY
d. unknown

Clarence A. OSBORN b. 26-May-1862 Freedom, Cattaraugus, NY
d. unknown

Almond OSBORN b. 10-Apr-1860 Freedom, Cattaraugus, NY
d. 03-May-1940 Muskogee,,OK


If anyone can help me find Roswell's ancestry I will be grateful.
