An Outline of HIh Eventful and Honorable
A carrespondent of the Salt Lake
City Tribune furnishes the following
concerning the late Judge M. IS. Os
born: Few men have had so many loving
friends in so many parts of the coun
try as Judge Osborn, whose death oc
curred in this city on Monday after
noon. May 29. lie was a man of such
warm and generous heart that he
drew everybody to him, and his
Christion fife was so cheerful and
beautiful and so free from blemish
that everybody trusted and admired
him. Antl during his long life of
more than !H years he formed ac
qimintenees in all parts of the conn
try among its noblest men. He was
just the kind of man to transform ac
nuaintenees into friends.
His fat her was Jeremiah Osborn,
of East Hampton, L. 1., and his
mother was Lucy Peek, of Lynne,
Conn. Judge Osborn was born in
the city of Troy, X. V., on March S.
lSOS. His school days ended when
he was 15, but he must have been a
diligent student, for he was after
ward a successful teacher. As one
looks over the record of his noble
life he cannot help exclaiming: What
a stirring, active, eventful life Judge
Osborn lived! How many important
enterprises for the commercial, edu
cational and moral welfare of man
kind lie helped, to inaugurate ami
carry forward in the various places
where he lived.
His lung life may be conveniently
divided into three periods, the tirst
extending to November, 1837. Dur
ing the seven years ending with 125
he was chief clerk anil bookkeeper in
connection; with commission and
.shipping houses in Richmond. Va.,
Plymouth, X. C, and Xew York City.
It'was during this time that he
formed those careful and methodical
business habits which niade him an
efficient business man all his life.
Three important events are connected
with this period, namely: His con
version at Lebanon. Conn., in July,
1H-2S; his marriage July 20, 1847, at
Ileaton, N. Y., to Miss Eliza A. V.
(irant, of Cornwall, England, and his
starting in business for himself in
182JJ. From the latter date until
1835, he was engaged in the lumber
and whaling business at Sag Harbor,
L. I. During the great financial
panic of 1887, largely through the
carelessness of others whom he
trying to aid. his comfortable
tune was entirely swept away.
This was the beginning of
second period, when he hail to begin
life anew. This caused his removal
with his wife and children to And
over. Henry county. 111., in Novem
ber, 1830. and thence to (leneseo in
18ti. in which latter place he lived
until 145. While in this part of Ill
inois, his fellow citizens put him in
various positions of public trust,
such as justice of the peace, county
eommissioner ami collector of taxes.
He also "helped to organize the acad
emy at (leneseo. In July, 1S45, he
removed to Kock Island, where lie
spent the remainder of his active life
up to the close of this second period
in 171. In Rock Island he was an
active business man for about 1'5
vears, engaging in land agency and
the insurance and lumber business.
In this city he hcled to organize
main" enterprises for the good of the
town, such as the Rock Island bank,
the telegraph company, the gas com
pany, the Rock Island Plank Road &
Rridge company and the public
library. He was also one of the
truste"es of the Rock Island universi
ty and of Knox college, and assisted
in organizing many churches and
Judge OslKrn was always noted
for his love of country. This was
well illustrated in 1861, when, al
though nearly 60 years of age, he
offered his services to the govern
ment and in November, 18G1, was
appointed assistant paymaster in the
navv where he served, for two years,
until failing health compelled him
to resign. This was no holiday busi
ness, for he was connected with the
Gulf Blockading Squadron, where he
was exposed to peril in many active
engagements, and to constant hard
ship. In 18(55 he suffered from a stroke
of paralysis, from which he never en
tirely recovered. The unbounded
conlfdence of his fellow citizens in
his honor and integrity was well il
lustrated in 180G during the pro
longed contest for the postmaster
ship in Rock Island. At last the rep
resentative'nien of all parties said
they would be entirely satisfied with
the'appointment of Judge Osborn.
Accordingly President Johnson aj
pointed him, anil he served the full
term of four years, giving entire
satisfaction to all, and introducing
some new features for the accommo
dation of the public. In 1870 he was
urged to be the citizens1 candidate
for mayor, with the assurance that
he would Jbe triumphantly elected.
But he was obliged to tell his neigh
bors that his temperance principles
would not allow him to grant or
sign a license to sell liquor, and
therefore could not accept the po
sition. Went ttWeat.
Tke last pariod of Judge Osborn's
life began in 1871, when the effects
of his paralytic attack compelled him
to seek the high, dry air of the
mountain regions. He accordingly
came to this city in the summer of
1871, and, with the exception cf
about three years, he has lived here
ever since. He helped to organize
the First Presbyterian Church in
this city, and was one of the first
elders. He remained in active con
nection with the church until about
three years ago. when he was trans
ferred, at his own request, to the
Westminister Presbyterian Church,
because he felt that he was more
needed there. He was au elder in
that church at the time of his death,
and notwithstanding his age and en
firmity, neither one of these churches
ever had a more useful member.
Judge Osborn's wife died 18 years
ago. He has three children living,
Charles M. Osborn, of Chicago, one
of the most successful railroad attor
neys in the country; Mrs. Curtis,
wife of Col. Henry Curtis, one of the
leading lawyers of the Rock Island
bar, and Mrs. Sarah Corker, of
Glenn's Ferry, Ida. Fred Corker, of
this city, is Judge Osborn's grand
son, and there was a strong bond of
attachment between the judge and
Mr. Corker's family.
His funeral took plaec in the First
Presbyterian church at 4:30 yester
day afternoon. The services were
brief and simple, but touching be
yond expression, illustrating anew
the devoted love which Judge Osborn
inspired in his friends.
No words can express the devotion
anil kindness of his physician. Dr.
W. F. Anderson, who ministered to
his wauls rather as a friend than a
physician. In the name, of the mem
bers of the Presbyterian churches of
this city, and for himself also, the
writer wants to express his gratitude
to Dr. Anderson.
Nor eon any words express the
self-saerilieing devotion with which
Mrs. Sarah Reed for six and a half
years has watched over and eared for
our dear old friend, who, for the
sake of the climate, was obliged to
live apart from his children. No
daughter could have have been more
faithful and devoted than this noble
Christian woman has been.
Faithful citizen, devoted friend,
noble Christian, hail and farewell
until we meet with thee in the land
where there is no more pain nor
death, and where God shall wipe all
tears from our eves.

produced by the brain and conveyed by

shown here, may be said
to tie the most important
