over on the windfall
windfall autumn 2013
Here's a picture of great uncle Hiram "Grand Sire" Osborne,
brother to my 4th grandfather Benjamin Osborne, with his wife Nancy Mullins.
As with my Clifton clan, these Osborns have a rich & extended lineage into England,
Grand Sire was born in Scott Co., VA 17 November, 1798.
Nancy was born in TN 11 September, 1799.
Two handsome fellows who share a certain air..
My gg grandfather Peregrine White Clifton of southwest Virginia & my 17th
grandfather Cuthbert Clifton, Sir Knight, of Westby, County Lancashire, England.
What do you reckon they'd have to say to one another?
& fellow LEO..
born August 22, 1586
