    1. [PIER] OSBORNE - PIER Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of four OSBORNE Family photographs. The first is one of Dr. Lyman OSBORNE'S three children which was taken by The Fowler View Co. from Des Moines, IA. The three kids are playing in front of a home and appear to range in age from infant to about 5 years old. The photograph appears to have been take in the 1890's. The second photograph is one of Laurie OSBORNE who was the wife of Dr. Lyman OSBORNE who is noted as "Mama's Brother" on the back. The photograph was taken at the Bicket Studio in Fitzgerald, GA likely in the 1890's or early 1900's with Laurie appearing to be in her 40's. The third and fourth photographs are both taken at "Grandpa and Grandma OSBORNE's Ranch". The name of the ranch is difficult to read but I'm guessing that it is "Winelba" or "Winaka" or "Winuba", just don't know for sure. In one photograph the grandparents are sitting on the porch (this is Lyman's parents - William Farrand and his wife Helen Maria SHEDD) steps with a young boy and a women stands on the porch, neither are identified. The fourth photograph includes Orlando CLARK and his wife Betsy who is identified as Grandpa OSBORNE'S sister along with Grandma and Grandpa OSBORNE. Again they are pictured in front of the ranch house. There are 5 more people in this fourth photograph that aren't identified + a horse! The 5 are 2 adults and three children, may be Dr. OSBORNE and his family? Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the various family members: William Farrand OSBORNE was b. 18 Apr 1891 in Waverly, IA and he married Grace Elizabeth PIER (1896-1990) on 16 Jun 1916 in Arlington, NJ. They had two children, Laurel Esther OSBORNE (1918-2000) and William Farrand OSBORNE Jr. (1921-2005) and he died 15 or 19 Apr 1951 in Dallas, TX and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Fitzgerald, GA. Helen Mary OSBORNE was b. 3 Jan 1893 in Waverly, IA and married Elisha Starr WINN Sr. (1878-1967) on 30 Dec 1944 in Fitzgerald, GA and Helen died 16 Nov 1978 and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Fitzgerald, GA. Esther Laurie OSBORNE was b. 24 Mar 1895 in Waverly, IA the third child of Laurie and Lyman OSBORNE. Esther married Jack Eston BREWER (1899-1978) on 23 Mar 1921 in Fitzgerald, GA. Esther and Jake had 5 children including, Jake Eston Jr.; Baby Boy Twins; Laurie Lee; and Charles Lyman BREWER, born between 1922 and 1930. Esther died 27 May 1971 and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Fitzgerald, GA. Laura "Laurie" Annie SMILIE was b. 23 Apr 1859 in Cambridge, VT to parents Francis SMILIE (1817-1892) and Mary Ann PERRY (1825-1893). Laurie was one of 8 children born to this couple including, Alma Frances; Fannie Annette; Clara Louise; James M.; Laura A.; Earl Madison; Frederic Martin; and Charles Henry SMILIE, all born between 1846 and 1870. Laurie married Lyman S. OSBORNE (1855-1945) on 24 Sept 1884 in Waverly, IA. Laurie died 22 Nov 1923 in Fitzgerald, GA and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Fitzgerald. Dr. Lyman S. OSBORNE was b. 1855 in Janesville, WI and he died 6 Aug 1945 in Fitzgerald, GA and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Fitzgerald along with his wife. Helen Maria SHED or SHEDD was b. 3 or 4 Sept 1832 in Bergen, NY to parents Milo Warn SHEDD (1808-1887) and Abigail PHELPS (1811-1897) who were married 30 Nov 1831. Helen was one of 5 children born this couple including, Helen Maria; Rosalthe Ann; Mary Albina; Henry Milo; and Abbie Jane SHEDD, all born between 1832 and 1855. Helen married William F. OSBORN (1832-1913)in 1854 and they had a son, Lyman S. OSBORNE (1855-1945) and a daughter, Sarah Rosalthe OSBORN (1871-1953). Helen died 14 May 1915 in Sunnyvale, CA and is buried in the Alta Mesa Memorial Park Cemetery in Palo Alto, CA. Her husband William F. OSBORN was b. 25 Nov 1831 or 26 Nov 1832 in Bergen, NY to Farrand Benoni OSBORN (1801-1871) and Sarah HAMMOND (1807-1844) who married in 1823 in Genessee Co., NY. The couple had 7 children including, Sarah Ann; Sarah Altheda; Clarissa Sylvia; William Farrand; Betsy Marion; Eli Lyman; and John Hammond OSBORN, all born between 1827 and 1838. William died 24 Jul 1913 and is buried in the Alta Mesa Memorial Park Cemetery along with his wife. Orlando CLARK was b. Mar 1829 in New York to parents Samuel Kent CLARK (1799-1863) and Charlotte WHITNEY (1804-1878). Orlando was one of 7 children born to this couple including, James; Luther; Orlando; Hiram; Sarah L.; Charlotte; and Samuel CLARK, all born between 1822 and 1844. Orlando married Betsy "Bessie" Marion OSBORN (1834-1927) on 27 Oct 1895 in Waverly, IA. Orlando died 8 Jan 1910 in Greeley, CO and is buried in the Linn Grove Cemetery in Weld Co., CO. Betsy was b. 1 Aug 1834 in Byron, NY and first married Edward Osgood GILMAN (1829-1893) about 1855 in New York and after he died she married Orlando and she died 13 Jan 1927 and is buried in the Linn Grove Cemetery along with her husband Orlando. I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photographs can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [PIER] what book contans pedigree of Pier sisters?
    2. Terence Kelley
    3. The grandaughters of Arent Teunis Pier & Geesje Jans were Maria Pier and Jannetje Pier. As the child of Maria married the child of Jannetje, the child, Alexander (1783)became the grandson of the Pier sisters. Alexander, then, has a pedigree going back to Arent Teunis Pier & Geesje Jans. He also has a pedigree going back to Geesje Jans and her FIRST husband, Pieter Carstensen. FURTHERMORE, Alexander has a pedigree going back to the brother of Arent Teunis Pier. I am seeking published material that prooves/disprooves the high frequency of cousin marriges within this Dutch community since he 17th century. More detail can be found on this convaluted pedigree by searching in rootsweb.com for Alexander Ostrander (1783). Terence Kelley terencepau@aol.com

    1. [PIER] stuck on Alexander
    2. Well, like everybody I have hit a block. His name is Alexander Peer born 14 April 1817 in Jersey City NJ, died 22 Aug 1878 and interred at the Hudson Blvd Mauseleum North Bergen NJ. He was by profession a "house carpenter" and married on 10 Oct 1840 in Morris NJ to Ellen Mariah (Riker). She was born 26 Oct 1814, died 15 Jan 1867 in Jersey City NJ and at Old Dutch church Vroom st., Jersey City. They had 5 children, I am interested in Alexander's parents and siblings and of course any other information that folks may have to get me back the next generation. Ellen hasn't been a problem but Alexander has me stopped. Thanks, Stephen Peer

    1. [PIER] Ask Olive Tree!
    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello fellow researchers - Some of you probably know that I read and answer a lot of questions on various genealogy mailing lists. I've been doing this for years but I decided that starting in 2009 I would use a slightly different method. Don't get me wrong, I am still going to respond to mailing list queries whenever possible. But I thought there was a better way to help other researchers, so I started a Blog called Ask Olive Tree. It's at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ Ask Olive Tree is a central place where I can post your questions and my answers, and where anyone dropping by can read them - and join in! Yes, anyone can leave a comment on any of the queries and answers on Ask Olive Tree. Do you need help finding an ancestor? Do you have a genealogy question you would like to ask me? Do you want to know where to find specific genealogy records? You can ask any kind of question from "How do I find my grandpa Harry on a ships' passenger list from Ireland to New York in the 1800s?" to "What's the Dutch name for Anna?" to "What does the British Bonus System mean?" (all of these are actual questions asked and answered) If you want help finding an elusive ancestor, please be sure that you provide me with a concise (brief) summary of your ancestor with names, dates and locations. Be sure to give me full location names, please don't tell me your ancestor lived in "Salmon Creek" and expect me to know where that is. I need to know the full location - "Salmon Creek, Puslinch Township, Wellington Co., Ontario Canada" Tell me where you have looked and what you want to find out. I've been receiving some queries that give me lots of details but never tell me what they want to know! Basically I want to help - either by finding your elusive ancestor, or by directing you to the sources you need to find him/her yourself or by answering a question about resources or name and boundary changes or.... whatever! The email address to use if you want to submit a question is askolivetree@gmail.com So take a peek at my new site Ask Olive Tree at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ , read a few of the queries already posted and then flex your typing fingers and send me a question. I can't respond to questions sent anywhere but askolivetree@gmail.com so be careful not to reply to this address when asking.

    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello all Peer/Pier descendants! My book on the PEER family of New Jersey and Ontario is almost complete after 20 years of research. I have traced all of Jacob & Anne Peer's children and descendants to the early 1900s. The Peer book that I intend to publish will follow Jacob & Anne's descendants to 7 generations. It is fully sourced and footnoted, with many images of original documents such as wills, land records, letters, photographs and census records. I am also including other Peer families in Ontario - families which are either proven to not fit into our line of Jacob & Anne, or families whose placement is at present unknown. At this point in the documentation process I am calling on submissions of documents. If you are a Peer descendant, I encourage you to submit your photographs (beore 1900 only please) and other documents or documentation on your lines. If you submit records which are unknown to me, I will use them in the Peer book with full credit to you as the source. Please understand that after 20 years of research there is a good chance I may already have what you submit, and if so, your name will not be used in the credits. In order to help descendants figure out if their family is currently in the book, I have put indexes online for each of the Peer family groups that will be in my book. http://olivetreegenealogy.com/books/peer-book.shtml Jacob Peer & Anne from New Jersey to Ontario 1796 - their descendants to 7 generations Matthew Peer (1800-1884) & Dorothy House of Elgin County Ontario - their descendants to 3 generations Peter Peer aka Pear & Mary Graham (ca 1792-?) of Leeds County Ontario - their descendants to 3 generations John Peair (1826-1904) & Bridget Monaghan of Wentworth County Ontario - their descendants to 3 generations Richard Peer (1817-?) & Elizabeth Shouldice of Bruce County Ontario - in progress Mary Peer aka Pear (1797-1888) & Simon DeForest of Halton County Ontario - in progress Mary Ann Peer (1827 -?) & Frederick Lunney of Grey County Ontario - in progress Thomas Peer & Catherine of Kent County Ontario - in progress Please feel free to write to me first at olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com to ask if I have the documents you are willing to share.
