Miss Osborne was born in Victor, September 13,1857, a daughter of David Henry and Lovina Bushnell Osborne. After attending local schools, she continued her studies in Miss Nichols' Seminary in Rochester. She was a talented musician, and for many years played the organ in the First Presbyterian church here. She was also a natural accompanist on the piano, and took part in many local entertainments in that capacity. Her creative faculty was expressed through the fashining of many beautiful articles of handiwork, which are treasured by the many friends upon whosm she bestowed them as tokens of her affection and interest. She was a devoted member of the Victor Presbyterian church and was much interested in Victor High School.
