Ebenezer Cemetery -Osborn(e) Family of Lewis County, Kentucky

Ebenezer Cemetery (more)

John A. Osborne, a son of Frank Osborne and Catherine Wherry, was born in Lewis County, Kentucky on 27 August 1869. He married his wife, Sallie F. Hughes in Maysville, Mason County, Kentucky on 21 November, 1893.  Sallie was born in Mason County.   He died there on 20 June 1941 with a subsequent burial at Ebenezer Cemetery on June 22.  By 1900, they'd had 2 children.  By 1910, they are the parents of 3 children, Axie (a daughter, age 15) and 2 sons: 10 year-old Oscar and 8 year-old, Charley. They surely considered themselves quite lucky that all of their children were living.  Also with them in Henderson, Lewis County, Kentucky in 1910 is Sallie's mother, widowed, 74 year-old, Hannah Hughes, a native of Ohio. Hannah's record shows that she'd given birth to ten children, but only 2 of those are now living.  So unfortunate, but it was not so unusual to lose children in these years.

The 1920 census shows changes in the household.  John and Sallie (Sarah, in this record) are both still in Henderson, Lewis County, but not in the same home.  John shows as widowed and has Charles F., age 18 living with him at household 18.  At household 20, lives Sarah F, son, Oscar, and her mother, Hannah, shown as age 83.  Sarah also says that she is widowed.  Sarah also has a servant with her.  Neither she nor her mother have an occupation, as such, but Oscar is farming, as are John and Charles.

John lives alone in 1930 still maintaining that he is a widower, but further research shows that Sallie, (Sallie Florence Hughes Osborne), born 21 May 1872 in Mason County, the daughter of Charles Hughes and Hannah Jane (Moore) Hughes died on 4 October 1933 in Henderson, Lewis County of chronic interstitial nephritis.  Their daughter, Axie (Osborne) Boyd gave the information for her mother's death certificate.  Sallie was buried 9 October 1933 at the Ebenezer Cemetery.

Charles F. Osborne, their youngest child, was born 6 October 1901 and died in the Scioto Memorial Hospital, Portsmouth, Scioto, Ohio on 3 November 1988.

John Oscar Osborne, born 7 November 1899, married Eliza Jane Hook about 1923.  John (better known, it seems, as Oscar,) died 19 Aug 1965 in Boyd County, Kentucky.  Eliza Jane was born 29 October 1901 with her death occurring in Mason County, Kentucky on 19 July 1987.  Their known children:
1) a stillborn baby in 1925
2) Delmar, born 23 December 1926 in Lewis County, died 26 October 1980 also in Lewis County and
3) Wanda, born 22 December 1929 in Lewis County.
4) Lowell R. born 10 July 1938 in Lewis County, died 22 Jan 1979.
5) Larry Dennis born 14 November 1944, died 19 November 1944.

Glen Wood Osborne was born 17 January 1905 and died 22 February 1993 in Lewis County, Kentucky.  He was a son of Robert Osborne and Rosa (Meenach) Osborne. 

Ray C. Osborne, another son of Robert and Rosa, was born 13 February 1915 and died 21 December 1997.  His wife was Lillian Matilda (Foudray), a daughter of Oscar & Melissa (Craycraft) Foudray.  Her date of birth was 27 November 1919 and occurred in Lewis County.  She died in Paris, Bourbon County, Kentucky.  Ray and Lillian were the parents of 8 children.
