    Notes 
    • Isaac is proved to be the son of Jedidiah Osborn by two documents: (1) Jedidiah Osborn's will which left Isaac and his brother Jacob each one-half of Jedidiah's lands and a one-half interest in Jedidiah's windmill. (2) a deed showing that Isaac Osborn of Winslow, Lincoln, Massachusetts (now Maine) sold a one-half interest in two parcels of land and a windmill in East Hampton. Part of the border of each parcel belonged to Jacob Osborn. The will and deed are provided under documents, below.

    Notes 
    • The number of children belonging to Jedidiah and Deborah is unclear. Richard W. Cook identified three unnamed children baptized on 17 Dec 1772. Based on circumstantial evidence, the website Osborne Origins has provided the names two probable sons (Ephraim and Jonathan), but I have not included them. [1]

    Transcript of Jedidiah Osborne's Will
    Summary:
    Jedidiah mentioned only three of his children by name in his will.
    Jacob and Isaac would each inherit one-half of his windmill and lands. If either Jacob or Isaac died without a male heir John would inherit that person's share except a third for the widow as long as she remained a widow.
    Each of the unnamed children were left 10 shillings and an equal share of the moveable estate.
    Isaac was away when the will was drawn as Jedidiah provided that "my son Jacob shall improve all my lands after my decease until my son Isaac shall return home"
    Executors: Jedidiah's sons Jacob and Isaac.
    Witnessed by Sarah Osborne (Jedidiah's sister?), Loraney Thompson and Elias Matthews.
    Will proved on 18 Apr 1786 and approved on 9 May 1786.
    Isaac Osborn’s sale of his share of the lands and windmill left to him by his father Jedidiah.

    Book G page 180 [Abstract] Know all men by these presents that I, Isaac Osborn, of Winslow, in the county of Lincoln, Massachusetts, yeoman, for and in consideration of the sum of one hundred pounds lawful money, truly paid by Daniel Hopping, of East Hampton &c., weaver, have sold and conveyed one half of a certain tract of undivided land lying in two divisions situated in said town of East Hampton, bounded as follows: beginning at the northeast corner and running southerly along by the pond till it comes to a creek called Stephen's creek; thence running up said creek about forty rods to land of David Hedges, thence running west about thirty rods to a road: thence running northerly up said road to land of Jacob Osborn ; thence running northeast to the first mentioned bounds, containing about thirty acres more or less. The other division lying forty rods northwest, beginning at the southeast corner, running northwest till it comes to a road; thence running northeast about sixty rods to a road; thence south about sixty poles, to land of Jacob Osborn ; thence running west to the first mentioned bounds and contains about thirty acres, more or less, together with one half a windmill, standing just by said premises. To have and to hold the one half of the undivided premises. Furthermore, I, the said Isaac Osborn for myself and my heirs do warrant and defend. In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 1st day of October, 1789
    ISAAC OSBORNE. [L.S.]
