[See the William Osborn-991 Family Bible]
Anna Osborn, daughter of Wm. and Elizabeth Osborn was born in Randolph county, N.C. September 22, 1827, died March 3, 1914, age 86 years, 6 months, and 23 days. She was married to Edwin W. Lineberry February 17, 1848; to this union was born seven children, one dying in infancy. The six living are: Wm G., Charles W., Elmina C., Louisa M., Addison A., and Anna E. These with the grandchildren were with her doing what they could to relieve her intense suffering. She was a true and loving mother, undergoing much of sacrifice and privation in the raising of her children; especially
during the Civil War. The husband was drafted into the army and forced to leave the wife with the helpless family; yet the mother went bravely forward with heroic efforts to supply a subsistance for them. Early in her married life she was awakened to a sense of her sins, and was wonderfully converted; her ears were saluted by strains of music which could not be equaled, except by the heavenly chorus.
The family emigrated to this country in 1873 and she has since resided in Parke county. For over twenty-seven years, she knew the loneliness of widowhood, and the most of this time has been an inmate of the home of her youngest daughter, Anna E. Mills where all was done that could be done to smooth life's rugged path way. She was a life long member of the Friends church, strictly adhering to the plainess of dress as was common in her early days. She was an ardent admirer of Robert Barclay's "Defense of Quakerism" quoting therefrom easily as perhaps few, if any of the present generation
can. Her last testimony was she had a good Master all the way along and she hoped for the bright home free from pain and sorrow. She leaves to mourn her loss three sons and three daughters, sixteen
grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren and a large
host of friends. Funeral services were held at the Friends church at Bloomingdale. Services were conducted by Rev. Reagan, burial at Bloomingdale cemetery.
Another link is broken another dear one gone,
To us is plainly spoken you soon must follow on;
So let our lamps be burning at morning, noon or night,
To Jesus always turning and thus walk in the light.
