    Sketch of Thomas Jefferson Osborn by Spencer F. Allen
    Thomas Jefferson Osborn was born in Greene County, Indiana, 20 February 1829. His father David Osborn Senior, was born in Virginia and from there his parents moved to Kentucky. Thence to Ohio, thence to Indiana where Jefferson was born.
    After Jefferson's parent's joined the church, persecution began. Their friends and relatives tried to discourage them in their new religion. The family moved to Missouri and Jefferson as a small boy witnessed the driving of his parents, along with other church members, from one county to another. He saw mobs make church members sign their property over to mobocrats, the enemy come into towns and take calves, sheep, horses, and cows and drive them away , what he called the bad men come into the homes of the Saints and take food and clothing. Finally the Saints were compelled to leave Missouri and most of them went to Illinois and located at Nauvoo. Jefferson's folks stcyed at different places and finally located four and one half miles northeast of Nauvoo.
    While in Pike County, Illinois, Jefferson was baptized into the Church in 1839. In the fall Jefferson went with his parents to Indiana to visit their relatives and returned in the spring of 1840. The family then moved to Adams County, and in 1844 to Hancock County. While there, Jefferson was very sick and his parents did not expect him to recover but he did.
    The family did not join the Saints who left Nauvoo in 1846 for Utah. They however, went west into Iowa and settled at Garden Grove in the spring of 1846. In the fall they moved back into Iowa and located in Potawatamie County. In the spring of 1848, when Jefferson was 19 years old, he went to Missouri and worked there three months at $13 per month, then returned home and left at once for St. Joseph Missouri and worked until Christmas. Then he returned to St. Joseph in the spring 1849. Also the spring of 1850. Quoting from Jefferson's journal: On 3 September, I started for Indiana to visit my relatives and returned in November, went to school that winter, worked at St Joseph in the spring of 1851. I married 14 September, 1851, Ellen, daughter of Alexander Standley, left my parents and moved to Belleview and worked in a blacksmith shop six months. June 1st I started for Salt Lake and arrived there 9 September 1852. I settled in East Weber and put up a house in October. Our child, Cynthia, was born 25 Oct. 1852. The Indians were troublesome and we had to move into a fort. 24 of January 1854 I was married again, (to Elizabeth Standley, sister to Ellen). December 31 we went to my father-in-law, A.S. Standley's burial. My daughter Cynthia took sick the 5th of February 1855 and died and left us without a child. Lydia, our fourth child was born 3 January 1857. Two girls had died in infancy before Cythia's birth. Two children, Sarah and Thomas Jefferson Jr. were born later to Ellen, the first wife.
    Thomas Jefferson had married Elizabeth, a sister of his first wife, in the endowment House at Salt Lake City, October 24, 1854. To this marriage, two girls were born, Rebecca, who married Simeon Franklin Allen, and Harriet, who married Andrew Jackson Mikesell. Jefferson was appointed captain of 50 men in the Nauvoo Legion when the Governor of Utah Territory put Utah under martial law. Brother Hunter ordained Thomas Jefferson Osborn a Bishop to preside over East Weber Ward. His father, David Osborn Sr. was retained as Ward Clerk. On June 12, Jefferson attended the meeting of the U.S. Commissioners and Brigham Young. He saw the U.S. soldiers enter the valley on July 25. Jefferson as a minute-man spent several days in Echo Canyon when Johnson's army was sent to Utah. While there in the winter of 1857, he contracted a bad cold which resulted in his death several months later, 9 June 1861, at East Weber. Jefferson's first wife Ellen, died 17 June 1861 and left two children, Sarah and Lydia.
    Division of Property: After the death of his first wife, Ellen, President Farr and Bishop West of Ogden came to East Weber and divided his property. Elizabeth received one third, her children one third and his first wife's children one third.
    In those days the women and order children helped to make the living while the men were in the fields or canyon, or building roads and ditches. The women would care for the cows, hogs, chickens and sheep. They would shear the sheep and then wash, card and spin the wool from which they made stockings, shirts, dresses, underwear, quilts, blankets and sometimes mens pants, caps, coats, etc. They churned the cream and made cottage cheese from sour milk. Products they might sell to neighbors brought: for a fat hen 15 to 25 cents; eggs, 9 to 15 cents per dozen; pork chops, ribs and bacon 5 to 10 cents per lb. From beef tallow, the women made candles for lighting their one room home or dugout.

      [The two slightly different versions of the Journals below were provided by Nancy Miles, 31 July 2009, the first one was 3 pages, small, neat handwriting and the second one was 3 pages of larger, more messy handwriting:
      From Thomas Jefferson Osborn's journal: [some spelling corrected and punctuation added for clarity]
      "Thomas J. Osborn son of David Osborn and Cyntha Butler Osborn, was born Green Co. Ind. [Indiana] Feb. 20, 1829 & moved to Missouri in the faul [fall] of 1836 & was driven out in Feb. 1839. stoped [stopped] in Pike Co. Ill & was baptized into the church of latterday Saints in June. I went in the fall to visit my relation in Ind. & returned the next Spring, moved to Adams Co. in 1841 & in 1842 moved to Hancock Co. in the fall of 1844. I had the ague 3 or 4 weeks in 1845, near the 1 of Sep I was taken very sick & at times I never expected to recover. I was not able to perform any kind of labor until the next Spring when we moved to Garden grove Ioa [Iowa] & in the fall I sold our crop & moved 50 miles to Mercer Co Missouri and wintered there & in the Spring of 1844 moved to Potowatomie [Pottawattamie] Co Ioa [Iowa] & in the spring of 1848 I went to Missouri & worked 3 months for 13 dollars a month & in the fall I went to St Joseph to work & returned Christmas in the Spring of 1850. I commenced work for S. B. Frost on the 3 of Sep.

      I started for Ind [Indiana] to see my relatives & returned in the Spring to my Fathers house, went to School during the winter. There I became acquainted with my future wife. I continued working for Frost comeing [coming] home at intervails [intervals]. Frost moved about 3 miles. He had one old cow that kept running back. I was obliged to go for her on foot, this aggrevated [aggravated] me being of a quick temper so one night I procured a Hickery [hickory] cudgel and taking her by the tail I whipped her severely. I retained my hold and ran all the distance home, the consequence was I had over done. before I got the chores done I took a chill, bled at the lungs and was dangerously sick all the rest of the winter. In the spring I recovered and went to work again.

      On the 13 of Sep 1857 I was married to Ellen Standley daughter of Alexander Schoby and Philinda Upson Standley. I took my wife back to Missouri, rented a room and we took 4 boarders while I still worked for Sam Frost in the Blacksmith shop. We burned a coalpit, we had to stay with it night and day. We took turns comeing [coming] home for food. I very foolishly tried to test my wifes bravery accordingl [accordingly] I slipped a wedge out so that I could raise the window and slip into the house unperceived by her. O how can I ever make amends. My naturay [naturally] brave wife fell to the floor in a swoon or fit, it was hours before she regained conciousness [consciousness], she never again was the same merry healthy brave woman. But was ever nervous, sleepless and an invalid. Troubled with Nightmare [nightmares] and constant fear or dread of some unseen intruder. She bore her misfortune uncomplainingly. Was industrious, equinomical [economical], very Religious, loving and obedient. Being a helpmete [helpmate] in its true sense. To her wise council [counsel] I often attribute in a measure my success in after life.

      In the spring of 52 we started for Utah enduring all the privations incident to that long journey with Ox teams. We had not been long on our journey when My sainted mother passed away to the great beyond to meet two children William and John, one laid in Missouri and one at Garden grove, both in infancy. We burried [buried] her on the plains with out a coffin, having fallen a prey to the hardships and privations of the journey.

      We arrived in the valley of the Great Salt Lake Sep 14th. I went to Sidney B. Kent's, My wife's cousin to wait for my father inlaw who was on the road. I worked in the Canyon for Kent 2 weeks & bought flour, pork and potatoes. I and my Father inlaw went in search of a suitable place to locate. We moved to East Weber, Weber Co., Utah, Oct 12, 1852. here I cut down Cotton wood logs and constructed a rude dwelling house Minus floor, door, shutter or window, only a cloth hung up to exclude the cold and let it down on warm days to admit light.

      We moved in to our first home except a wagon Oct 24th. On the 26th of October our first child was born. We called her Cyntha Philinda. As it was required of every L D S to be baptised [baptized] I went early in the fall and attended to that ordinance and was ordained a Teacher and joined the Ward in which I lived.

      In the summer of 53 the Indians were hostile, we were obliged to move into forts, all who had moved out on their farms. Accordingly I had to pull up and move into a fort 3 miles from my farm. We were obliged to stand guard nights, take our guns with us to the field. Two or three must go out together as a safe precaution against Indians, forcibly reminding us of our trip across the plains when every able boddied [bodied] man must take his turn standing guard while the rest slept.

      Jan 24th 1854 I married Elizabeth, daudter [daughter] of Alexander S. Standley and Philinda Upson Standley. In May 18th we had another daughter born. We called her Martha Ellen. She did not live long, she died May 31st 1854. I spent my time working on the farm. Through the fall my wife Ellen and our child Cyntha had very poor health. in Feb 5th Cyntha died leaving us childless. The 9th of March my sister Elizabeth Hammer died. In May 19th we had another daughter born we called Mary Elizabeth."
      A mystery. Another slightly different version of Thomas Jefferson Osborn's Journal, in it his surname is incorrectly spelled Osborne, and some of the letters are written completely different. Perhaps it was written by someone other than Jefferson, a copy of what he wrote:

      "Thomas J. Osborne was born Feb 20th 1829, Green Co., Ind. [Indiana] & moved to Missouri in the fall of 36 and was driven out Feb. 1839, Stopped in pike Co., Ill. & was baptized into the church of L. D. S. June 1839. I went in fall to visit my relations in Ind. & returned the next spring, moved to Adams Co., in 1841 & in 42 moved to Handcock in the fall of 44. I had the ague 3 or 4 weeks and in 1845 near the first of Sept. I was taken very sick and at times never expected to recover. I was not able to preform [perform] any kind of labor until the next spring when we moved to Garden Grove Ioa [Iowa] and in the fall sold out & moved 50 miles to Mercer Co., Missouri and wintered there & in the spring of 47 moved to Potowatomie [Pottawattamie] Co. Ioa [Iowa] & in the spring of 48 I went to Missouri & worked 3 months for $13. per month, I went home & in the fall went to St. Joseph to work and returned Christmas in the spring of 50. I commenced work for A. B. Frost in 49. I worked in St. Joseph for Horner the 3 of Sept. I started for Ind to see my relatives & returned the 11th of Nov. to my Fathers, went to school during the winter. I finished work for Frost in May 51.

      I got married Sept 14. I left my fathers & moved to Belle view & worked in the Government Black Smith Shop 6 months. the 1 of June I started to Salt Lake & arrived the 9 of Sept 52. My Mother died July 2nd on wood river.

      I settled in East weber, weber Co., put up a house in Oct. Our oldest child Cyntha was born 26th of Oct. Cyntha Adaline my sister died in March. I was rebaptized & ordained a Priest. The winter was very hard, the summer of 53 I raised 60 bu. wheat, the last of July I moved to the Settlement, the Indians were troublesome and we was obliged to move into a fort. Our child was unwell.

      [Oct] 24th 54 I was married again. May 18th 54 Martha Ellen was born & died on 31st 54. In 54 I raised 67 bu of wheat. The 31 of Dec we went to my Father in law A. S. Standley's burial. Cyntha took sick Feb 5th 55. She died and left us alone again & Cyntha Adalade, my sister's child came to live with us. I raised140 bu of wheat and the same of corn. Jan 3rd 57 Lydia our 4 child was born, their [there] had been a general refermation [reformation] and in March we was rebaptized. In May I was apointed [appointed] Capt. of 50 in the Nauvoo legion and was ordained into the 54 quorum of Seventies on July 28th. We anticipate trouble with our enimies [enemies]. I have raised 167 bu of wheat. Sept 12th their [there] was a general muster. I have two A. of wheat Sept 12. The 14 of Spt [Sept] Rebecca our fifth was born. I brought brock & the colt from Ogden. dull cloudy weather the 15th the Govener [Govenor] declared the Terr. under Martial law and ordered the legion to be ready to move at a moments warning. On the 28 at one oclock had orders to start by 9 oclock in the afternoon and 2 men with a bagage [baggage] wagon and 30 days provisions the same evening I had orders for the same number to be ready"

      "Our Pioneer Heritage" Vol. 10, Eleven Autobiographies, Michael Standley Tells His Story, Page 116:
      "About the first of June 1861, Mother was called to Weber for sickness in the family there. In those days the mail was supposed to be tri-weekly, that is, they went over one week and tried to get back the next. Lydia and I were alone and Mother was gone a long time with no word. When she came home she brought Ellen and her three children with her. The baby had been born soon after Mother had reached there and the husband, Jefferson Osborn, had died a few hours afterward. All this seemed more than Ellen could stand in her weakened condition. She felt she would not live long and requested Mother to care for her children. She followed her husband in a week or so and the baby went a few months later. Mother went to a cousin, Sidney Kent, who often advised and helped her, to see about what to do about some property that should belong to the little girls so they could have it to help raise and educate them. They obtained a small bunch of young growing stock and he agreed to take care of them on shares, thinking that would be better than turning them immediately into cash. In the fall of 1863 there came a snowfall of six to eight feet all over Summit County where Kent's place was located. The stock were bunched in small groups all over that country, keeping the snow packed close around them while they gnawed the hair off each other and finally died before the owners could get to them. There were a few head close around the home place that were saved. In the summer of 1865 he returned all that was left of them without keeping any for his trouble."

      Below are songs that were sung in the Osborn's Mormon community. Thomas Jefferson Osborn wrote the lyrics in his diary/journal. The first Mormon ballad was found on this website:
      The Mountain Dell
      Chorus [after each verse]
      Away, away to the mountain dell,
      The valley of the free:
      Where faith has broke the tyrant's yoke,
      That bound fair liberty.

      We'll plow, and sow, and joyful reap,
      The land our God has given;
      To bless our friends, to bless our foes,
      And make our home-a heaven.

      Away, away, &c.

      No famished children there shall pine,
      Nor frantic mother wild,
      Ere seek to take that life away
      She gave her infant child!

      Where red men trail the buff'lo's track,
      O'er mountain's desert sand-
      We'll tell them of their father's acts'
      Who once possessed the land.

      Then while this hour of vengeance low'r,
      And sinners find no rest;
      Then hie ye home, ye Saints who roam,
      Your hope is in the west!
      (Millennial Star 1850, 80)

      This following Mormon hymn can be heard on this website:

      Author: Charles W. Penrose, Composer: H. S. Thompson

      [Thomas Jefferson Osborn wrote this in his diary/journal, dated at top, Jan 28th 1858]: O Ye Mountains High
      O ye mountains high, where the clear blue sky Arches over the vales of the free,
      Where the pure breezes blow and the clear streamlets flow, How I've longed to your bosom to flee!
      O Zion! dear Zion! land of the free,
      Now my own mountain home, unto thee I have come; All my fond hopes are centered in thee.

      Tho the great and the wise all thy beauties despise, To the humble and pure thou art dear;
      Tho the haughty may smile and the wicked revile, Yet we love thy glad tidings to hear.
      O Zion! dear Zion! home of the free,
      Tho thou wert forced to fly to thy chambers on high, Yet we'll share joy and sorrow with thee.

      In thy mountain retreat, God will strengthen thy feet; Without fear of thy foes thou shalt tread;
      And their silver and gold, as the prophets have told, Shall be brought to adorn thy fair head.
      O Zion! dear Zion! home of the free,
      Soon thy towers shall shine with a splendor divine, And eternal thy glory shall be.

      Here our voices we'll raise, and we'll sing to thy praise, Sacred home of the prophets of God.
      Thy deliv'rance is nigh; thy oppressors shall die; And thy land shall be freedom's abode.
      O Zion! dear Zion! land of the free,
      In thy temples we'll bend; all thy rights we'll defend; And our home shall be ever with thee.

      [Below is my transcription of some verses that Thomas Jefferson Osborn had written in his diary/journal. I have been unable to find the author. This might have been a silly song they sang or a poem he wrote. I wish I knew. LMW]:

      The ravings of a disappointed lover
      I want to sell the universe, I'll sell it cheap for cash
      I want to buy a smacking team and cut a rousing dash
      I want to show to Sally Ann that I can scoot around
      and leap from all my cares away with sudden easy bound

      You see I loved said Sally Ann, I thought her good & true
      And never dreamed she'd fly from me and go for Isaac Drew
      Sometimes I feel that I fly and tear the northern lights
      And fight and rant around and speak on women's rights

      And then again I try to dire forget my Sally Ann
      And make myself believe I am another man
      I guess if I should see Ike Drew, I'd make an awful smash
      I'd wring his nose and tramp his toes and cut him into hash

      But when I come to think again, I think it would be wrong
      I'll let the fellow live awhile at best it won't be long
      I'll tear my hair for Sally's sake, I'll bear my mark in peace
      I'll go to town next monday night and buy a thousand geese

      I'll walk up on the mountains, I'll roost upon the tree
      I'll charge upon the [this line is crossed out]
      I'll fly across the china sea and go to polings[?] peas
      I'll get a board and slide adown the great Pacific slope
      I'll buy some thred [thread] and turpentine and make a cable rope
