Rose Osbourne-Kent, England

Site visitor Richard sent the following…

I am interested if you have any information on Rose Osbourne, who married Victor Hilary Vidler probably around 1918 in Kent England. I am interested in her because I am trying to find the living relations to Sophia Bowles who was born in 1822 in Horsmonden, Kent, England. I have been able to somewhat trace her lineage forward, but I hit a dead end when I come to Rose Osbourne Vidler. I am not a descendent of them but I own a sampler that was made by Sophie Bowles in 1835 when she was 13 years old, and am interested in finding out more about her life. Somehow the sampler ended up being passed down to my family in the US and I am curious how my mother ended up with it.

"McClellan Osborne is my g-g-grandfather. The info I have shows he married Louise Daniels.

Does anyone have any further info on McClellan?"

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.
