      MARRIAGE:
      1. Unmarried. Various censuses always show him as single.

      DEATH:
      1. Cemetery record gives 19 Apr 1910 whereas both obituaries give 20 Apr 1910. I use obituaries.

      BURIAL:
      1. Per online index of Ogden City Cemetery: George Osborne, b. 27 Oct 1837 in England and d. 19 Apr 1910 at Brigham City [error: should be Bingham], UT, parents Cornelius and Harriet Morgan, buried in plot D-4-1-4E.

      2. Ogden City cemetery records (Lot 1, Blk 4, Plat "D"). Approximately 18 total relatives (Osbornes, Burnhopes, Petersens, McCarrels, and Koepkes) buried in near proximity.

      3. Per obituary.

      OBITUARY:
      1. "Ogden Pioneer Dies at Bingham Home. E.A. Larkin left for Bingham Junction yesterday afternoon to bring the remains of Geo. F. Osborne, who died there yesterday morning at 4 o'clock, to Ogden for burial. Mr. Osborne was born in England, August 27, 1840, and came to Ogden in 1871, remaining here several years, when he moved to Bingham Junction, which had since been his home. His death came from general debility and his burial is made here to join those of his family who have passed away and were laid to rest in the City cemetery. He is survived by a daughter, Mary Ann Burnhapi [Burnhope], and two sons, Cornelius and Lambert Osborne. [This statement is in error since these are his living siblings.] The services will be held Friday, the time and place to be announced later." Ogden Daily Standard, Thurs., 21 Apr, 1910.

      2. "Burial of Geo. F. Osborne. Ogden, April 2 [misprint of 22]. - The body of George F. Osborne, who died at Bingham Junction early Wednesday morning, was brought to Ogden for burial Thursday afternoon and the services will be held today. The deceased was born in England, Aug. 27, 1840, and came to Ogden in 1871. He later moved to Bingham Junction, which has since been his home. He is survived by one daughter, Mary Ann Birnhapi [Burnhope], and two sons, Cornelius and Lambert Osborne.

      ACTION:
      1. Look up in 1870 U.S. census for Utah to see if the George noted above as emigrating in 1868 with wife Ann and daughter Ann is our George or not. I believe our George may never have married.
