Dr. William Egbert Osborne

I am a great-great grandaughter of Dr. William Egbert Osborne, who lived much of his life in Curdsville, Buckingham County, VA. He died across the county line into Albemarle County, specifically in Scottsville. I don't know when or where he was born, but it would have been around 1800. He graduated from Jefferson Medical College, in Philadelphia in 1826. He died of typhoid fever in 1894; I have found several dates, either in Feb. or Aug. Despite years of family research, no one has been able to locate his parents, birth date or birth place. The best guess is that he is kin to Thomas Osborne, also of Buckingham Co., but that may not be so. He may have had a brother who went west (Neb. or Kansas?) right after the War Between the States and who may have also been named Thomas. He married Anne "Nannie" Eppes. dtr. of Willie Jones Eppes (descendents of John Wayles Eppes) 12 Jun 1866, at The Grove, in Halifax Co., NC. They had 8 children, including my great grandfather William Egbert Osborne.

Please contact me if you have any ideas about Dr. William Egbert Osborne.
