* Richard Bruce Osburn Home Page*

Updated October 16, 2014


Scroll down to Related Files near the bottom of the page for links to my life experiences as a young child and teenager. There are also links for my navy sea tales spanning the years 1957 to 1976.
++++++++++++++
I'm researching my family roots which include immigrants:

Frederick HENGERER/HANGER (1726-1799), arrived in Philadelphia Dec. 1740 on board ship ROBERT and ALICE.

Ludwig FRIDLEY (ca. 1688-1748) arrived in Philadelphia Sept. 1732 on board ship JOHNSON.

Henry BOYER/BOWYERS (1767-aft. 1850), married Mary JACOBS, daughter of Jacob JACOBS. (Information discovered in 2011 named FRANTZ/FRANCIS JACOBS as the father of Mary Jacobs. This information was rather convincing in that Francis Jacobs named Henry Boyer as the husband of Mary Jacobs, a daughter of Francis.)

The above families lived in Frederick, Shenandoah, Rockingham and Augusta Counties, VA.

James OSBURN, married Barbara GARNES about 1810-1820, lived in Ross Co., OH. His son, Henry Thompson OSBURN, my g-granddad, was born in Ross Co. OH in 1833, and married Margaret Ann FRIDLEY in Muscatine Co. IA.

Daniel W. McCOY, (1842-1902) from Highland Co., OH. Served in Civil War, discharged as Brevet Brig. General, served in 24th and 175th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiments.

My Marlboro County, South Carolina lines include PATRICK, PARKER, WEBSTER and THOMAS.

I especially need infomation on the ancestors of the McCOYS, OSBURNS, GARNES, JACOBS, BOYER/BOWYERS, PATRICKS, PARKERS, WEBSTERS and THOMASES. Will trade information freely.
