||Chardon Twp. -
E. N. OSBORN was born in
Somerset, Vermont, Oct. 8k, 1823, and with his parents, Daniel and
Maria Osborn, came to Ohio in the fall of 1829, settling in the
township of Chardon, on the farm now owned and occupied by him.
The country was but little improved at that time, and of those who had
already planted themselves at the time of his arrival, but few are now
living. Mr. Osborn's occupation is that of a farmer and
cattle-dealer, and by dint of hard work, industrious and frugal habits,
he has succeeded in acquiring a large property. He owns some six
hundred acres of land, all of it under improvement. He was united
in marriage, Oct. 6, 1849, to Andyne Day, who was born in Mantua,
Portage county, Ohio, June 24, 1828. The result of this union was
two children, Lester D., who was born Sept. 22, 1850, and D.
Edward, Aug. 3, 1857. Mrs. Osborn died Aug. 31, 1858,
and Mar. 24, 1859, he married Cyrena Bancroft, who was born Aug.
He united with the Baptist church of Chardon when about
thirteen years of age, which relationship has continued without
interruption since. Mr. Osborn has held various township
offices, such as justice of the peace, assessor, or trustee, which he
has filled acceptably.
