Ringgold Record, 1889

OBITUARY - TAYLOR V. OSBORNE.

Taylor OSBORNE was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, November 25, 1832, came to Iowa in 1854, and settled in Wappello county. He married Miss Mary A. MATTHEWS, a native of Ohio, September 3, 1857. By this union was born to them seven children, four boys and three girls. The wife and five of the children are left to mourn his loss. The eldest daughter is married; the other two are teachers, holding first class certificates. The two sons are still at home.

Brother OSBORNE joined the Baptist church in 1859, near Ottumwa, Iowa, and has been a faithful member ever since. He moved to Ringgold county in 1865, and located in Clinton township, where he has since resided. He took an active part in things calculated to build up the morality of his community, and was free to denounce immorality. As a politician he was active, yet careful. He was an uncompromising Republican and a strong prohibitionist. He wielded an influence for good that will be sadly missed in his neighborhood. He was taken sick February 13th, and died the 18th, and was buried the 20th by the Odd Fellow Fraternity, of which he was a member. Thus has passed away a useful, benevolent, charitable man. He has gone from labor to reward.

NOTE: Taylor V. OSBORNE died at the age of 56 years, 2 months and 23 days on February 18, 1889. Interment was made at Forrest Home Cemetery.

Mary A. (MATTHEWS), wife of Taylor V. OSBORNE, was born on September 11, 1834, and died on May 9, 1919.
