The 1991 Osborne Family Reunion
 
 

The 1991 Osborne Family Reunion

by Tom Osborne (tlosborne@aol.com)

In June of 1991, a reunion of  the descendants of William R. and Lula Osborne was held in Lone Oak, KY at the home of Jane and Nolan Harton and 82 of those descendants were able to attend.  A group picture is shown below.  I recently got the picture out and realized that I didn't know or recognize about half the people in the picture any more.  I was going out to visit Sue Bone, so I enlisted her help and she figured out the ones I didn't know.  So I decided we'd better write down who everyone is before it's too late and we are left speculating as happens too often with old pictures.

Below the picture is the current family tree for each of the eight children of William and Lula with the latest marriages and children.  But remember that the photo is now over 11 years old, so there are several people in the family trees that weren't around at the time of the photo, in addition to those who weren't able to attend the reunion.  The names shown on the photo are the names at the time of the photo.

In keeping with modern technology, instead of a list to identify each person in the picture, simply pass the cursor over the person's face and the name will pop up.  If you click on the face, you will be linked to that persons listing in the family tree below.   To return to the picture, click on the Back button on your browser.  In addition, in the family tree below, the line "Descendants of ...." is linked to that persons listing in the Rootsweb database, where you can find more information on the ancestors (click on Pedigree) and descendants (click on Register) of the person.
 


 

William and Lula had eight children.  Following are the family trees of each of those eight children in order of birth.
