Re: Osman / Osmun of Northampton / Lehigh County, PA

Bruce,

I think it is possible that John and Daniel Osmun were brothers who married Bellis sisters, although I haven't found proof that Anna Osmun was Anna Bellis.

The William Osmun who died in 1818 was John's brother - William's widow Elizabeth renounced her right of administration of the estate to her "brother in law" John Osmun. Whether or not this is the same William Osman who married Elizabeth Hoppock in 1811 in Hunterdon County, NJ, is not obvious.

I was researching property records at the Lehigh County CH today for the first time in about 10 years, trying to find anything more on the Osmun's. Dead end. But I'll keep you posted if I find anything else.

Bill
