Daniel Osborn

OSBORN. -- At his residence in Jackson township, on Wednesday, the 11th day of February, 1880, Mr. Daniel Osborn, of lung fever, in the 78th year of his age.

The funeral services were conducted by J. B. Smith, of the Methodist church in the church at Jackson Center, where a large congregation of friends and relatives assembled to pay their last respects. After listening to a highly instructive sermon to the living, with due respects to the deceased, the mortal remains were conveyed to the Carter cemetery.

Daniel Osborn was born in the town of Oxford, New Haven county, Connecticut, on the 19th day of September, 1802. with some assistance from his parents and by his own energies he obtained a good education and commenced teaching school at 16 years of age. He has taught 61 terms. In 1872 he moved to Huron county Ohio, where he married Carthaette Cole in March 1831, and was the father of 6 children -- 5 boys and 1 girl, all of whom are living and have families. In 1858 he moved to Jackson township, this county, where he resided to the close of his earthly pilgrimage. While he never possessed much of worldly goods, nor seemed to desire much, he was content with present necessities of food, clothing, &c., giving his children a liberal education, and maintained strict integrity in his dealings with all mankind. He never sued any person and never was sued. He endorsed the Christian religion in early life and became a member of the Congregational church about 40 years ago. He labored many years in the craft with the Masonic fraternity, ever regarding the ancient land marks, but was non-affliated at the time of his death. He often remarked that Christianity consisted in strict obedience to the laws of God and charity to all mankind, ever laboring in the school room, in Sabbath-school and in society to advance honesty, morality and Chritianity. We bespeak charity and sympathy to our bereaved mother as heretofore shown, in her declining age and health.
