    Family 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) 
    Married 23 Nov 1815  Halfmoon, Saratoga, New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    • 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. [4]
    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. [5]
