My gggggg grandfather, Rev. John Osgood, was the son of Thomas Osgood, Jr. He married Mary Andrew about 1838 in Midway, Liberty Co., GA. His epitaph reads:

"HERE ARE DEPOSITED THE REMAINS, OF THE REV. MR. JOHN OSGOOD A. M. HE WAS BORN IN THE SOCIETY AT DORCHESTER SOUTH CAROLINA IN 1710 HE ENTERED THE MINISTERIAL OFFICE MARCH 24th 1735. HE WAS A BLESSING TO THE CHURCH AND TO HIS FAMILY. HE DIED AUG 3rd 1773 IN THE 63rd YEAR OF HIS AGE. GREATLY LAMENTED HE WAS AN AFFECTIONATE HUSBAND TENDER PARENT A KIND MASTER AND VERY LIBERAL TO THE POOR. BLESSED ARE THE DEAD WHICH DIE IN THE LORD FROM HENCEFORTH YEA SAITH THE SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY REST FROM THEIR LABOURS AND THEIR WORKS DO FOLLOW THEM."

A historical marker at his grave reads:

This is the grave of the Rev. Mr. John Osgood, who came to Midway with the first settlers in 1754 from Dorchester, S.C., and served them faithfully as their minister and friend until his final sermon, May 5, 1773. Born in Dorchester, one of their own people, Mr. Osgood received part of his education from their old pastor, the Rev. Mr. Fisher, and was graduated from Harvard in 1733. Ordained to the pastoral charge of the Congregational Church November 24, 1735, the Rev. Mr. Osgood ministered to these people, in Dorchester and in Midway, for 38 years. He died on August 2, 1773.
