 I would like to know if anyone can identify the three people in the picture. The picture was among the genealogy that I inherited from my grandmother. There is nothing on the postcard to identify where it was taken. This is possibly Chrisopher Osborn, brother of John A. Osborn.

Denise received a box of photos and would like to identify them. They are mostly of the Robinson/Osborn Familes of Decatur County. If you can help Denise in indentifying these people, email Denise, making sure to put "Decatur County Photos" in the subject line and a short description of the photograph you are referring to.

My grandmother was a daughter of Carey Deisher and Sarah Jane Riddle of Decatur County. These belonged to her. I believe most of them could be Beavers, Rains, Dents or Elders. She married the son of Marcellus Brown and Revecca Lilly from Wayne County so it's possible that some of them are connected with the Browns. My best guess as far as time frame is 1870's to 1890's.
