      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. Shoemaker.

      2. The following two items are on file but unsure as to which Cornelius Osborne they refer:
      a. "Declaration of Intention To Become a Citizen of the United States. I, Cornelius Osborne do declare, on oath, that it is bona fide my intention to become a Citizen of the United States of America and to renounce and abjure forever, all allegiance and fidelity, to all and any Foreign Prince, Potentate, State and Sovereignty whatever, and particularly to Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland of whom I was a subject. Sworn and subscribed to before me, at my office, at Ogden City, this 29th day of April, A.D. 1872. [Signed] Cornelius Osborne. G. Myron Hawley, Clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court, in and for the Territory of Utah, per G.C. Wright, dpty. I, C. Myron Hawley, Clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court, in and for the Territory of Utah, do certify that the above is a true copy of the Original Delaration of Intention of Cornelius Osborne to become a Citizen of the United States of America, remaining on record in my office. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto subscribed my name, and affixed the Seal of said Court, at my office, in Salt Lake City in said Territory this eighth day of May A.D. 1872. [Signed] C. Myron Hawley, Clerk."
      b. "Certificate of Citizenship. United States of America, Territory of Utah - SS. Be it remembered, that on the tenth day of May in the year of our Lord, 1882, Cornelius Osborne, late of England in the Kingdom of Great Britain at present of Ogden City in the Territory aforesaid, appeared in the First Judicial District Court of the United States, in and for Utah Territory, and applied to the said Court to be admitted to become a Citizen of the United States of America, pursuant to the directions and requirements of the several Acts of Congress in relation thereto. And the said Cornelius Osborne, having thereupon produced to the Court such evidence, made such declartion and renunciation, and taken such oaths as are by the said Acts required; thereupon it was ordered by the said Court that the said Cornelius Osborne be admitted, and he was accordingly admitted by the said Court to be a Citizen of the United States of America. In testimony whereof, the Seal of the said Court is hereunto affixed, this 10 day of May, in the year 1882, and in the year of our Independence the 106th. A.C. Everson, Clerk."

      5. Minnie Margett's Member Card Index, FHL film 415452:
      Cornelius Osborne, bapt. 18 Sep 1849 by Elder Bradshaw at Woolwich, London Conference, age 36, residing at Anchor Alley, Woolwich. Per book 458, p. 477, line 228.
      Harriet Osborne, bapt. 18 Sep 1849 by Elder Bradshaw at Woolwich, London Conference, British Mission, age 60, residing at Anchor Alley, Woolwich. Per book 458, p. 477, line 227.

      BIRTH:
      1. 1900 census reports Aug 1813. Tombstone, death certificate, and cemetery record shows birthdate of 11 Aug 1814. The christening date I have is undocumented by me; however, if correct for 1813, then a birthdate of 1813 would be correct. Also the following by Cornelius himself per "Temple Index Bureau card for End. House, 18 Nov 1872; Bk H; No 31; Pg 2: Cornelius Osborne, b. 11 Aug 1813 at Arlington, Sussex, Eng., parents: Con Osborne and Dinah Daw" indicates 1813 as perhaps a reliable date.

      2. Handwritten note on the back of a commercial advertising letter dated 1895 [on file], source unknown but appears to be a child of Cornelius and Harriet Osborne:
      "Edward Lamberth, borned June 27/37
      George F., October 29/39
      Sampson D. Jany 2/42
      Mary A., March 27/44
      Cornelius, May 27/47
      Lambeth, Jany 4/53
      Dad, Aug 11/13 Arlington, Sussex
      Mother, Decr 25, 1809 Crayford, Kent
      Thomas Burnhope Feb. 22, 1845"

      CHRISTENING:
      1. Source of christening information from extracts of the Registers of Arlington Parish Church, Sussex, England from 1700 onwards by correspondence (copy on file) of 30 Nov 1953 from George Mitchell of Berwick Rectory, Nr. Polegate, Sussex. Cover letter reads: "In reply to your request for information about the Osborne family, I have searched the Registers from 1700 onwards, and find the entries given on the enclosed sheet. It is unfortunate that the marriage entries are so few, but it must be remembered that marriages usually take place in the woman's parish, and there is no means of finding out where this might be apart from inspecting the registers of the district. I have no record at all under the name of Daw; Con Osborne is married to Sarah Coleman in his 24th year, but if this is the Sarah who died in 1806, he may have married again between 1806 and 1813, though for the reason given the marriage would not be in the Arlington Registers. I have an older Register going back to 1609, but I have not searched this; it is in latin, and would take some time to go through... There is no one of the name of Osborne in the parish now, and my oldest inhabitants cannot remember any family of this name. The parish, which still covers about 24 square miles, was twice as large until 1845, when a 'daughter' parish was carved out of it, and it may be that there are entries after this year in the records of that Parish... If you are interested in 'your old Church,' I may say that it is an unusually fine one, and dates back before the landing of the Conqueror..." He also notes: "It is more than likely that 'Osborne' and 'Osborn' are the same family, and 'Edward' and 'Edmond' may be the same person."
      Baptisms:
      1813 Oct 10, Cornelius, son of Cornelius and Dinah Osborn.

      MARRIAGE:
      1. Marriage License, p. 92, copy on file, FHL film 405111: "Marriages solemnized in the Parish of St.Leonards, Shoreditch in the County of Middlesex in the year 1837. Cornelius Osborne of this parish, bachelor, and Harriet Morgan of this parish, spinster, were married in this church by banns this tenth day of April in the Year 1837 by me, John ???, Curate. This marriage was solemnized between us. Cornelius Osborne. Harriet Morgan (X) her mark. In the presence of Geo. Yarrow, Eliza Agram (X) her mark. No. 274."

Cornelius Osborne, an old gentleman who has resided for some years at 2264 Madison avenue, was found dead in his bed at 8:30 a.m. today by his little grandson. Death is supposed to have ensued from heart failure caused by a complication of the weaknesses of age. He was in poor health when seen by a son last night and the young man remained at his bedside until 10 o'clock when upon his father exhibiting signs of improvement he went home. When a grandson called at the residence this morning, it was found that the old gentleman had died during the night. Notice of funeral will be given later." Ogden Standard, Thursday, 10 Jan 1901.
