  • Name Orsborn (Osborn), Isaac  
    • The family name has been spelled Orsborn, Osborn, Osborne, and Osburn, but Orsborn is what Isaac used in letters to his parents and brother William and on deeds. Orsborn also is the name on the family gravestones in the Oakwood Cemetery in Grass Lake, Michigan, and on the gravestones of Isaac's and Millie's first and second sons Peter, and Isaac 3rd. Orsborn was used on Enos' Michigan death certificate. However, Isaac's brother William used Osborn in a letter to Isaac. [see documents].

    • 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. [5]
    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. [1]
