Died -
at Reed's Corners, Ontario county, N. Y., June 25th, 1879, Chester Osborn, in age, the 82d year. It is often said "the good die young." This may be true and at the same time not preclude the fact that the good may live long. To those who have long known "Uncle Chester," as he was familiarly called by his friends, the simple notice at the head of this article, will call forth the almost unanimous expression, "a good man has gone from our midst." Chester Osborn was born in Hadley, Hampshire county, Mass., November 9th, 1797. He was the oldest of four children, two of whom died in infancy. He had one sister, the mother of the author of this sketch, who with him and their parents came to this county in the month of May, 1817. They settled in the eastern part of the town of Gorham, at that time, on a farm purchased of Elisha Williams of Hudson, Columbia county, N. Y. They remained there about five years, and the purchased of Herman H. Bogert, of Geneva, N. Y., a farm about three-fourths of a mile west of Reed's Corners. To this place they moved in 1822. On this place Richard Osborn died in 1841. His widow survived him 13 years.  Chester Osborn as heir by will, retained the premises, upon which he resided for 27 years until the spring of 1868 when he moved to his late residence at Reed's Corners. He lived a single life until 1855, when he was married to Miss Jane Wood, of this town. Together, for nearly a quarter of a century, they have passed their lives quietly, pleasantly and happily. They have not been separated for a period of twenty-four hours from the time of their marriage until his death.

From Victor Herald 27 January 1905

    The death of D. Henry Osborne occurred at his home on Maple avenue in this village at an early hour Thursday morning. Mr. Osborne was in the eighty-sixth year. For many years he had been in ill health, failing quite rapidly during the last few months. A recent attack of pneumonia drew heavily on his depleted store of vitality and he was unable to rally from it. D. Henry Osborne was the son of David and Mary Osborne and was born in Austerlitz, Columbia county, New York, November 11th, 1819. He first came to Victor in 1835, when he began his mercantile career as a clerk in the store of Nathan Jenks, who conducted a general mercantile business in the building now occupied by A. Simonds' Sons.

The trip from Austerlitz to Victor was a long and tedious one, leaving an ineffaceable record of its hardships upon the memory of the traveler and Mr. Osborne's story of the journey told in later years, to members of his family, was a very interesting one. Schenectady was in those days the western terminus of the railroad and from there to Victor the journey was made in the primitive stage coach. But thinly clad, the young traveler suffered bitterly from the cold as well as from loss of sleep, a comfort practically denied him in the cramped quarters of the coach. After spending two years in the store here, Mr. Osborne devoted some little time to the pursuit of knowledge in an academy in Lenox, Mass., and then went to Phelps to clerk in a store there. In 1839, he went to Rochester and entering into partnership with a Mr. Pierce, engaged in the dry goods and carpet business, they having a store on the Main street bridge in that city. The waters of the Genesee river, then the scene of large lumbering operations in its upper courses, were laden with the germs of fever and ague, and after four years, Mr. Osborne found his health so impaired by the disease that he was forced to close out his business in Rochester nd return to Austerlitz for recuperation. In 1844, he returned to Western New York to look after a milling property at East Victor, of which his father had acquired control. East Victor was then a flourishing, prosperous hamlet and in partnership with a Mr. Varney, he opened a dry goods store there, continuing the business for several years in the stone store still standing east of the mill stream.

Mr. Osborne was married in 1847 to Miss Lovina A. Bushnell, who survives him. They moved to this village shortly after their marriage, residing for a time in the house which stood until burned in 1899 just east of the residence of George Bliss. In 1855-56 Mr. Osborne erected the beautiful home on Maple avenue in which they have since resided. In 1848, Mr. Osborne became a member of the First Presbyterian church of Victor and for forty-seven years he was an elder and for forty-two years a deacon of the church, holding those offices at the time of his death. Until ill health made it impossible he was an active participant in all the affairs of the church and he was always intensely interested in its welfare, giving liberally of his means to support of its benevolence and toward the expenses of its maintenance. In politics Mr. Osborne was in early life a Democrat. Leaving that party because of its attitude on the slavery questions, he became a Free Soiler and then a Republican to which party he was loyal everafter. He never sought political honors.

The death of D. Henry Osborne removes from the community one of its most influential and respected citizens. A man of considerable means, with a talent for the management of large affairs his advice was frequently sought because of the keenness of his judgment and the accuracy of his conclusions. He lived an upright life, doing justly by all with whom he dealt, standing always shoulder to shoulder with all who strove for the more uplifting of the community. Liberal in his views, tolerant of the opinions of those who differed with him, and invariably courteous and kindly in manner, he enjoyed the affection and esteem of his townsmen and of a large circle of acquaintances throughout Western New York.

He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Miss Cora B. of Victor, and Mrs. Mark T. Powell of Canandaigua, and one son, William B. of this village. The funeral services will be held from his late home Saturday afternoon at two o'clock, the Rev. Frank W. Hill, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, this village, officiating. Interment will be had in Boughton Hill Cemetery.

of Canandaigua, while in a state of intoxication at Rochester last week, fell into the canal and was drowned.

From Geneva Daily Times 13 July 1895

On Saturday, the 6th inst., John C. Osborne died in Phelps at the age of 26 years.

From Victor Herald 20 April 1906

Mrs. Lavinia A. Bushnell Osborne,
widow of D. Henry Osborne, died at her home on Maple avenue in this village, at a late hour last Friday evening, at the age of seventy-six years. The death of Mrs. Osborne removes from this place one of its oldest native residents, she having been born and lived for nearly all of her many years on the site of the house in which she died. Mrs. Osborne was the daughter of William Bushnell, a pioneer settler of this section, who was one of Victor's most prominent citizens in his day. He was widely known for many years as an extensive shipper of farm products, making Bushnell's Basin on the canal the shipping point, that place deriving its name from him.

Mr. and Mrs. Osborne were married in 1847 and in 1855-56 he erected the beautiful home on Maple avenue from which he passed away a little more than a year ago. For many years, Mrs. Osborne had been an invalid, not being able to enter into the busy activities of life, but during that time was much interested in local events and especially in the work of the First Presbyterian Church, of which she had been a member for sixty-three years. She was a woman much loved in the community because of her kindness of heart and the broad charity she manifested to all about her. Since the death of Mr. Osborne, she had steadily failed in health. Two daughters and a son survive, Miss Cora B. Osborne of Victor; Mrs. Mark T. Powell of Canandaigua; and William B. Osborne of this village. Funeral services were held from the family home Monday afternoon, Rev. Frank W. Hill, pastor of the Presbyterian church, officiating. Interment was made in Boughton Hill Cemetery.

From Ontario County Times 7 December 1864

On the 28th day of October last, Stephen H. Osborne, a member of Company H, 126th Reg't, N. Y. V., while performing the duties of advance picket in front of the 2d Army Corps, was hit in the head by a ball from the gun of a rebel sharpshooter and instantly killed. Through the murderous practice of firing on pickets, this promising young soldier has thus been stricken down, causing his companions in arms and friends at home to lament his untimely death, while his country has lost the services of a strong arm and brave heart, sincerely devoted to its cause. Young Osborne enlisted from the town of Farmington, in the month of August, 1862, under that gallant young officer from the same town, who lost his life at the battle of Gettysburgh -- Capt. Herendeen -- and stood faithfully by him to the last. Soon after the battle of Gettysburgh he was compelled by sickness to go to hospital at Alexandria, where he remained for a long time, suffering from disease contracted by exposure. About the time that the army moved to the south side of Petersburgh, he joined his regiment, then at the front, and stood manfully at his post through all the hardships of the past summer, and finally died, as a soldier loves to die, with his "musket in his hand and his face to the foe."

Upon hearing of his death, his father, Mr. John Osborne, a respectable farmer of the town of Farmington, immediately took the necessary steps to procure his remains, and succeeded. His friends thus had an opportunity of attending his funeral, which took place at his father's residence, November 23d. His remains were followed to their last resting place by a large number of sorrowing relatives and friends.

From Geneva Gazette 14 April 1871

It becomes our painful duty to chronicle another fatal accident, which occurred in this village, on Tuesday last.  A young man named John Osburn, Jr., who was attending school at district No. 11, was engaged, in common with several other young students of the school, during the morning recess, in the exercise of jumping, in the rear of the school house.  One of the boys having made a very good leap, young Osburn made an extra exertion to beat him, and in so doing ruptured a blood vessel, from the effects of which he died in a very few minutes.  After the jump, he started for a well, a short distance off, and while in the act of drinking, fell backward and soon expired.  Dr. F. C. Hawley was immediately summoned, but before he reached the spot the boy was beyond the aid of human skill. Young Osburn was about seventeen years of age, and physically was very strong and athletic for a boy of his years.  His father, John Osburn, resides on Phoenix st., in this village. Can. Times

Note:  This would be in the Village of Canandaigua.

Burrus Osgood died at his residence, one mile north of Manchester village, Friday evening, aged 83 years. Mr. Osgood was born on the adjoining farm, being one of a family of eleven children, all of whom have gone before except one brother, Edward. He had always been a resident of the town and one of the active men in it, being one who was looked up to in business matters, and politically, being an ardent Republican. He was honored by his party associates and was the last one left of the old line of Republicans in the time of Fremont and Dayton days. His daughter, Ada, and son, Carlos, are the only ones of the family who survive him and mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent father. They have the sympathy of the many friends who have known Mr. Osgood so long and so well.

From Shortsville Enterprise 22 March 1912

In the death of Edward Osgood, one of the best known residents of the township of Manchester, which occurred at the farm home of his niece, Mrs. Maria J. Elliott, four miles north of this village, is closed one of the most interesting of careers. His age was 85 years. Edward Osgood was born on the old Osgood homestead, now occupied by Henry Howland and family, on Nov. 3, 1827, the son of the late Elihu and Amy Osgood.

When he attained the age of 16 years he decided in favor of a sea life. Selecting a neighbor's son, Demas Barnes, as a companion in his venture, they ran away from home and went to New Haven, Conn. As a matter of interest, young Barnes later in life became connected with the Brooklyn Eagle. The boys engaged as sailors on a whaling vessel, about to start on the three years' cruise, but lost heart before the voyage began. The night before the date set for the sailing, they left the ship and swam ashore. They then set out for Manchester afoot. When they reached the Erie canal they hired out on a canal boat and by that means got as far as Palmyra, eight miles from home.

During the gold excitement in California in 1849, Mr. Osgood became possessed of a desire to go to the gold field and started on the long journey by the water route, going around Cape Horn and requiring six months to complete the journey. After reaching San Francisco, he opened up a bakery and prospered in business. However, misfortune overtook him and during the night of the great San Francisco fire, his bakery was burned and he was left destitute. He carried no insurance on the place. He immediately went in search of gold and in this way retrieved his wealth. His roving disposition demanded that he be moving again and in 1855 decided to return home. He chose the ship route and while on the voyage cholera broke out among the passengers and both crew and passengers were kept in quarantine at Key West, Florida, for nearly six months. He was one of the very few that ever reached their destination alive.

After reaching Manchester township he purchased farm on which he was born, it having passed out of the hands of the family. He was twice married, his first wife being formerly Miss Lucy Booth of this village, who died on Nov. 8, 1872. His second help-meet was Miss Cornelia Sheckel, who became his wife on Feb. 4, 1874. Her demise occurred on Oct. 21, 1899. During the year of 1867 he sold his farm and moved to the village of Canandaigua, where he purchased and conducted a book store. He remained in this business for a period of ten years. Later a farm was bought in the township of Canandaigua and he remained its owner for about three years. He then moved to Rochester and lived there for nearly 18 years, returning to Manchester to pass his remaining days in 1899. Mr. Osgood is survived by two daughters, Mrs. William Sisson and Mrs. Rockwood, both of Canandaigua; one nephew, Chas. P. Osgood, of Manchester, and three nieces, Mrs. Maria J. Elliott of Manchester, and Mrs. George Slagner of Rochester. The funeral services were held from the Elliott home on Saturday afternoon at two o'clock and the interment was made in Woodlawn cemetery at Canandaigua.

The unfortunate man lived but a few minutes after the accident. He was 65 years of age, of industrious habits, and generally respected. He leaves a wife and family to mourn his sudden demise.

He was a kind neighbor and of such disposition that he was classed among those of whom "aught could be said," of generous and amiable qualities, and was a kind and dutiful husband and father. He leaves a wife and two sons, Many relatives, his family and wife mourn the loss of a dear father and friend. He was widely respected. He had known for some time that his health was in a precarious condition, but became resigned to his fate. The funeral was held at the house on Monday and the burial was at Mt.

From Geneva Gazette 13 July 1888

Weary of Life's Struggles -   We, who have a realizing sense of the joys of living, who consider that the sweet far outweighs the bitter during our natural existence on this mundane sphere, can hardly appreciate or understand any combination of circumstances, any aggregation of reverses or afflictions, which would induce a person to deliberately violate the law of God and nature in taking his own life.  Nevertheless, the papers are full of accounts of "suicides" and a case of that kind occasionally happens right in our own midst, and the charitably disposed place the cause as "temporary aberration of mind."

On Wednesday last Patrick O'Sullivan of Clifton Springs got off the train at this village; said he was ill, and asked that he be conveyed to a hotel and a doctor summoned.  The busman drove him hurriedly to the Kirkwood and summoned Coroner Maynard and Drs. Weyburn and Wiles.  The man was dying, however, and retained only sufficient consciousness to indicate that he had taken poison of some kind, and that he intended to die.  Everything possible was done to save his life, but all efforts proved useless and he breathed his last in about ten minutes.  Before he died he handed the coroner his pocket-book and a sealed letter addressed to his son, John, at Clifton Springs. Mr. O'Sullivan was born in Ireland, and was about fifty years old.  He had lived in Clifton Springs twenty years, during all of which time he had been employed at the Sanitarium.  He was industrious and sober, and had accumulated property worth about three thousand dollars.  No cause can be assigned for the act.  He leaves a wife, two sons grown to manhood, and one daughter, who will receive the sincere sympathy of the entire community in which they live for their sudden affliction.

One of those distressing railroad fatalities which brings tears to the eyes of the most hardened, occurred on the lake pier on Saturday evening, when Clarence L. Overhiser, aged about 36 years, a brakeman employed in the local Northern Central yards, was crushed to death beneath the wheels of a fruit car. Overhiser was a member of the crew which had gone to the lake to pick up some fruit cars. He was standing on the top of a box car when a sudden bump threw him to the ground directly in the path of the car. The wheels passed over his chest, causing almost instant death. After Coroner Donovan had examined the body, it was removed to the Kennedy undertaking rooms. The task of informing the wife devolved upon a neighbor, who found her busy with preparation for the evening meal in their little home on West avenue, and who is now left with five children, ranging in age from two to 12 years. It is understood that insurance money totaling about $2300 will be available to her. Rev. H. L. Gaylord officiated at the funeral services on Tuesday afternoon.
