I have a copy of the U.S. Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963 showing William Osborn who served in the Revolutionary War, died 5 Apr 1835, and was buried on a farm in Boonville, Indiana. A Mrs. Forsythe of Newburgh, Indiana applied for a military marker on 30 July 1935.
Would you have any records on where William Osborn was buried in the area.
BIRTH 10 JAN 1764 • North Carolina, USA DEATH 5 APR 1835 • Troy, Fountain, Indiana, United States (my 5th great-grandfather.)
I would like to see his grave when I am back in the area, I grew up in Hoopeston, Illinois and have been researching my father's side - Etherton. Thank you for any information you may have. I did check the list of Revolutionary War Veterans who are buried in the state of Indiana compiled by the Inidana Society NSDAR and did not find him there.
