    Notes 
    • (Research):Hannah's surname Osborne is in LFM's notes on the family history, and Maud Latham left a note saying that Hannah's sister was Selina Keeler, wife of Hyram Keeler who lived in Detroit (Hiram was actually her son.) This enabled me to locate Hannah's father, Isaac Orsborn.

      In the 1900 US Census for Michigan, Wayne Co, Detroit ward 14, district 150: Selina Keeler b. June 1827 in New York. Her father was born in Maine and her mother in Connecticut. Selina is in the 1850 - 1880 censuses, but her husband was named Peter A. Keeler. Selina had a son named Hiram.

    Father Orsborn (Osborn), Isaac Jr.,   b. 16 Sep 1792, Winslow, Lincoln, Maine Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 11 Jan 1874, Grass Lake, Jackson, Michigan Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age 81 years) 
    Mother Morse, Mille (Millie),   b. 22 Aug 1793, Kent, Connecticut, USA Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 20 Jun 1872, Grass Lake, Jackson, Michigan Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age 78 years) 
    Married 23 Nov 1815  Halfmoon, Saratoga, New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • Marriage place is inferred; Mille's father was living in Halfmoon at the time of her marriage.
    • The Morse Genealogy says "they settled in Gloucesterville, N. Y.". Glousterville is doubtless a mis-transcription of Gloversville, the largest town near Mayfield where they lived. [3]
    Notes 
    • The following is in the brief Osborn genealogy in the History of St. Albans, Maine:
      "Isaac Jr., born Sept 15, 1792; m. Millie Saliner (last name indistinct in records)."
      I have found no other record of this marriage, and this record probably refers to Mille Morse. [4]

    • Wedding date from biosketch of Arthur D. Knapp
    • Who married David and Hannah?
      Hannah's sister Selina was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Mayfield. Thus, it is probable that the rest of the family also attended that church, and that David and Hannah were married by one its pastors. Possibilities are (name and year of service): William Ames, '35; James H. Taylor and Henry Williams, '36; Roswell Kelley and J. P. Foster, '38; O. Emerson and H. B. Knight, '39; Jos. Eames and John Seage, '40. These men were undoubtedly circuit riders. The list was taken from Broadalbin in History by R.J. Honeywell.

      Solomon Knapp was a member of the Baptist Church of Broadalbin and Mayfield, and it is possible that the marriage was conducted by a pastor from the Baptist Church. They were Rev. Wm. Groom, 1818, Rev. James Delaney, 1837; Rev. WM. Curtis, 1838 (list from the Church website)
