The death certificate for Richardson Osburn's daughter Malinda (Osburn) Roman gives her birthdate as 29 March 1826 and her mother as Malinda Osborn born in Ohio. It seems unlikely that Richardson Osburn was married previous to his marriage to Sarah Woodruff, to an Osborn born in OH at that. More likely is that the name given for Malinda (Osburn) Roman's mother is in error and that Malinda was born a year later than that given on the death certificate, making her birth 29 March 1827, which would be 11 months after Richardson's marriage to Sarah Woodruff.

Richardson Osburn-5's son does not appear in the 1860 Fountain Co., IN census with the rest of the family. Correspondance from Mrs. Vera Clem (granddaughter of George W. Osborne-13657) to Florence Osborn (dau. of Doctor Frank Osburn-29) in 1912 shows that George W. Osborne was brother of Doctor Frank Osburn-29.
