Hi! I've been amazed at how the Osburn & Christian families in Wayne County, (West) Virginia, were intertwined between 1850-1870, and I cannot quite believe that three Christian brothers each married women named "Mary Osburn,"

So I created a free space mysteries page: [[Space:Marriages between Osburn & Christian Families|Marriages between Osburn & Christian Families]].

I hope it can help us parse out the multiple marriages between the Osburn families and Christian families in Wayne County, (West) Virginia, between 1850-1870.

If you know more than I do (I started with only one secondary source & then have been diving into the 1860 & 1870 census), please link to existing Wikitree profiles or create new ones as appropriate! Thank you!

I have to laugh!  That happened a lot back in the 1700's and 1800's.  Furthermore, are you talking about the descendants of Joseph Osburn and Rhoda Romine?  There are all sorts of people looking for the parents of Joseph Osburn, if you know who they are you can contact me at Katieo4321@aol.com     Kay    By the way the library had a Howard Osburn working on all the family history for the Osburns.  I don't know if he is still there or not.
