    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  [9
    • 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. [9]
    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. [10]

  • Notes 
    • Maud Latham's notes indicated that Hannah Osborn Martin's sister was named Selina Keeler, and she lived in Detroit Michigan. US Census records indicate that Selina's and Hannah's father (Isaac Orsborne) was born in Maine.

      Thanks to Richard Anderson, a descendant of Selina, who pointed me to information about her. The following was copied from Richard Anderson's posting on findagrave.com. which included a photo of Salina's headstone with her birth and death dates.

      ". . . His wife, Selina (Osborne) Keeler, was born in what is now Mayfield, Fulton County, New York and united in that place with the M.E. Church at the age of 15 years. She was a member there until 1846 when she united by letter with the M.E. Church at Prairieville, Michigan since which time her church membership has been with her husband. Her parents, Isaac and Millie (Morse) Osborne, were natives of the state of New York and were lifelong members of the M.E. Church. The father died in 1874 at aged 81 years and the mother in 1872, aged 79. Mr, Keeler has two children, Mary E., now Mrs. George F. Robison, a member of Woodward Avenue Congregational church and Hiram Morse, whose church preferences are also congregational."
