Osborne ancestors of Richland County

I am seeking information on my Osborne ancestors.

I know for sure that my Great Grandfather was John William Osborne (known as Willie) b. 26 APR 1865 Bloom Township, WI, d. 16 SEP 1938 Richland County, WI. m. Edith Ada Fry 22 JUN 1888. He was a storekeeper in Richland Center, WI. I do not know where he is buried.

I believe his father (my GG Grandfather) was John or James William Osborn(e) b. circa 1820 d. 2 DEC 1897. He was married to a woman named Elizabeth.

I believe his father (my GGG Grandfather) was Philipp Osborn b. cica 1800, possibly in OH - he was supposed to have married to a woman named Charity b. circa 1900 in PA.

I believe all of them are buried in the area of Richland County, WI. (I found refered to Big Willow and or Big Spring cemetaries.

My ancestors probably moved from PA, OH, or IN to WI in the early 1800s.

If anyone can help me with my search, I would greatly appreciate it.
