Osborne, [Private] said in May of 2011 that he thought his Father might have had a sister named Janet, who was a servant to an Edwards family in Syracuse, NY. Also, he remembered his Father's middle name spelled as "Killian."

According to Osborne, [Private] there was a rumor about someone in the family being adopted and the name "Babcock."

The 1910 Federal Census lists a Babcock Family that matches known names and dates. According to that census, The Babcock family consisted of Charles (head, 38yrs old, 1st marriage), Estell (wife, 38yrs old, 2nd marriage), Janet (daughter, 14yrs old), and Richmond (son, 12yrs old). At the time of the census, they had been married 5 years.

The 1915 New York, State census lists Estella C. Babcock as the head of household, with children Jeanette O. and Richmond K. They are all listed as living on Miner Ave, Camden, New York, and working as, "Laborer-Knit-Mill."

It is suspected that there was some unpleasantness, perhaps a divorce or aversion on the part of other family members to involvement with Jehovah's Witness, connected with this family. Very little is known about them, and something appears to have been hushed up.


Richmond K. Osborne's father is called "William" on Richmond's birth record, the one printed in 1943. However, he is called "Charles" on Richmond and Elsie's marriage license from 1929.


When the 1940 Federal Census was taken, the following were listed as living together on Oswego Street: Alice Frances Sparrow Park, Mary Elizabeth Sparrow Meeker, "Richard" (Richmond) K. Osborne ("Substitute Letter Carrier" "Post Office"), Elsie Mary Park Osborne, and Richard William Osborne.
