Thanks for replying, JC. I hate to say this but I have all that data, but I do really appreciate what you have done for me.

What I was hoping for, was a death date (such be around 1790) or something to tell me what happened to Joseph Senior? There is nothing that I can find on him to tell me what happened to him. I know little Joseph Junior was taken by a family to take care of and I do think that family was the Kinters as they were supposedly good friends with Joseph Senior. The Kinters were Presbyterian also but they lived in the next valley over from Shaver's Creek.

I have two big note books full of my ancestors right now and coming up against that huge wall again as to ancestors in the old country. I do not think he was from Scotland as I have spent many hours trying to find anything on a Joseph Osborne on familysearch. There is one resource on rootsweb that has me very confused. There is one listing in Scotland which list Thomas Osborne married to Elizabeth Manning who have two children, Elizabeth and Joseph, both born 20 Sep 1737. This confusing part is these same people are in the Glouchestershire genforum and there is much more info on them there than in Scotland. There were ten children in the England version. One problem with this is the the town in Scotland is spelled THOMASTON and there is no such town in Scotland that I can find. There is many more towns (TORMARTON)listed in the Gloucestershire forum and they are all there, every last one of them. The information is much more realistic in the Gloucestershire forum. The story fits better but the main character, Joesph dies at an early age. You know like something smells to high heaven here.

The whole problem is all these years everyone has taken the gossip out of one book. "Aarons of Crates," and no other information is creditable now. Everyone just thinks the book is the last word in this situation.

I sure do appreciate your help. All the facts coincide nicely with the Gloucester story but the names I can not get them to jive.

Joseph was supposed to be thick with the Shaver's Creek Presbyterian Church in Huntingdon County. If I could find something out there, I think I could find out where he and Junior came from.

I just spent the afternoon scanning familysearch for Joseph Osborne in Scotland. No dates or anything else and there just is nothing there. Just the name of Osborne and there is nothing there at the right time period.

Thank you for your help again.
Earl S. Osborn Jr.
