I think the Ann Osborn you found may be the wrong Osborns. Dad (now Deceased) had a copy of the 1910 Census in his records. It showed George O. Osborn with wife Anna M. and the 4 surviving children with wife Anna's brother Robert M. Heiler living with them (listed as "brother in Law". Anna M Osborns mother was born in Germany although she herself was born in Pa. It is ashame the 1890 census was lost, I believe it would be the key in going back further with this line. George Oliver was born in 1880 so he may of not been on the 1880 census. Anna M was born in 1875 so she should be on the 1880 census (Philadelphia may be questionable for the location)Her brother Robert would not show on the 1880 census, Robert was not born untill 1892. I believe Orson Hill Osborn was born 5/10/1834 with son George O Osborn being born in 1880. I also have reason to believe that Orson may have been married 3 times. this is a tough one isn't it ?
I really appreciate your time and effort
