Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 745, Van Buren Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"WILLIAM OSBORN was born in Hampshire County, Virginia, October 6, 1821, and is the son of J. and ELIZABETH OSBORN, who were natives respectively of New Jersey and Virginia, were both twice married, and were parents of ten children. WILLIAM OSBORN was married in Marion County, Ohio, February 11, 1844, to REBECCA DILTS, who was born in Muskingum County, Ohio, December 16, 1827, and is the daughter of DANIEL and MARTHA DILTS, natives of New Jersey. In 1859, MR. OSBORN came to White County, this state (Indiana), where he remained six years, and then came to Rosedale, this township (Van Buren), where he yet lives, and where he has been engaged in milling since 1876. He has had born to him nine children, viz., EMILY (deceased), CHARLES, WILLIAM, C.H., REBECCA, ELIZABETH, ERASTUS (deceased), and two infants who died unnamed. MR.
