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.

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.

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."

      2. Mentioned in mother's obituary as the proprietor of the Chamberlin Hotel in 1890: "Last evening at 9:12 Mrs. Cornelius Osborne died of dropsy in the City. She had been ailing for many years. She was eighty years and five months old, and came here from Islington, London in 1871 having resided in Ogden ever since. She is the mother of Cornelius Osborne, now the proprietor of the Chamberlin Hotel. The funeral services are to be held in the 4th Ward meeting house at ten a.m. next Sunday.
