Family of [Living], [Living] and Osborn, Estella C.

Married Husband [Living], [Living] ( * + ... )


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.


The 1910 United States Federal census data says that, Estella C. Osborn's marriage to Charles Babcock was her second, and that she had born four children, four of whom survived.


During the time of the 1915 New York State Census, Estella was living in Camden, Oneida County, New York with children, Jeanette and Richmond. Charles Babcock is no longer part of the family. He may have died, or perhaps they divorced.


During the time of the 1920 United States Federal Census, Estella appears to be unemployed outside the home, and is living with her sister Lucy A. Osborn Green in Camden, Oneida County, New York. Her marital status is "Widowed," and her last name, "Osborn."


During the time of the 1925 New York State Census, Estella was living, as head of household, in Camden, Oneida County, New York with her son, Richmond. Her last name is given as "Osborn," and occupation, "Housework."
