Subject: Bennett Genealogy: Jerusha Bennett

Kari,

A couple of weeks ago I was able to roll a genealogy expedition into a business trip – I spent two days in Bath, Steuben County, New York. While there, I found Jacob Bennett’s will abstract in the Steuben County Historian’s office. My transcribed version is given below. I believe this document answers the question of Jerusha Bennett-Sabin’s parentage. And now, if we can only eradicate the "Gerutia" misspelling that seems to proliferate in every corner of the Internet. It’s as though they are unacquainted with Jerusha’s grandmother or the Bible’s Jerusha -- wife of Uzziah, and mother of King Jotham (2 Kings 15:33) -- for whom the elder Jerusha was undoubtedly named.

I hope you find this information useful.

Event: Biography 1891
Note:
OSCAR H. OSBORN, editor of the Brush Creek News and the Postmaster of that place, was born in Oneida County, N.Y., July 29, 1836, and traces his ancestry back to one of seven brothers of the name of Osborn who came from France to America and located on Long Island during the Colonial days. His grandfather, William Osborn, was born in Springfield, N.H., there married and spent his entire life. He served as a Revolutionary soldier. His son Jedediah and the father of our subject was born near Springfield, January 16, 1787, and among his teachers was Daniel Webster, he attending the first school that statesman taught. He became a farmer and through many years of his life followed that occupation. In Springfield he married Jane Webster in 1805, and unto them were born ten children. A few years later he removed to Fairfax, Franklin County, Vt., where his wife died. In 1824 he was a second time married, the lady of his choice being Cynthia Wilkins, who was born in Fairfax and was a daughter of Capt. Asa Wilkins who gained his title in the War of 1812. In 1827 Mr. and Mrs. Osborn removed to Rome, Oneida County, N.Y., where twenty years of their lives were spent, when in 1847 they went to East Florence, of the same county. They were highly respected citizens and both were church members. Mr. Osborn being a Universalist and his wife a Baptist. He was a well-to-do farmer and in politics was an old line Democrat. His death occurred January 23, 1870, and the mother of our subject died in 1880. By the second marriage were born nine children, thus making Mr. Osborn the father of nineteen children, all of whom lived to mature years, while eight are now living, two by the first and six by the second marriage.
Our subject is the seventh son and seventeenth child. His early life passed uneventfully, his days being spent in the usual manner of farmer lads. He acquired a common school education and at the early age of thirteen years started out in life for himself. Thus, depending upon his own resources, he has steadily worked his way upward and may truly be called a self-made man. Going to Illinois he engaged in peddling notions from a wagon. On one occasion he stopped with a man who had a clock that needed repairing and asked Mr. Osborn if he could not perform the job. With supreme ignorance of the mechanism of a clock he undertook it and succeeded, and soon gained quite a reputation as a clock tinker. He followed peddling some four years, then clerked in a store, was a brakesman on the railroad, or followed any pursuit which would yield him an honest dollar. He built the first house in Ridott, Stephenson County, Ill., and during his residence there was joined in wedlock with Miss Mary C. Gitchel on the 24th of June, 1858. The lady was born in Ridott, November 10, 1841, and was the daughter of David L. Gitchel, a native of Vermont, who in early life removed to Steuben County, N.Y., where he married Elizabeth Bennett on November 15, 1821; she was born in Steuben County, N.Y., November 1, 1802, and died in Brush Creek, Iowa, March 5, 1874, having survived Mr. Gitchel many years. His death occurred in Ridott, Ill., December 11, 1848. They were the parents of nine children.
On the 7th of November, 1861, Mr. Osborn enlisted in Company K, Forty-sixth Illinois Infantry, and was first under fire at the battle of Ft. Donelson. He was Sergeant about a year and a half and with his company participated in the battle of Shiloh, the siege of Corinth and of Vicksburg, Spanish Fort and Ft. Blakely. Afterward he was detailed on special service as messenger of mails, orders, etc., a position he filled two years, when he was mustered out at Baton Rouge, La., January 20, 1866, after a service of four years, two months and thirteen days.
Returning to Illinois Mr. Osborn removed his family to Brush Creek in May, 1866, and engaged in the mercantile business. In March, 1874, having sold out and not wishing to be idle, in order to have something to occupy his time he issued the first number of the Brush Creek News then a two-column journal, six by ten inches. So well did he succeed in the venture that he increased the paper to a five column, then a six, and in 1882 to an eight-column journal and put in a power press. In 1870 he was appointed Postmaster of Brush Creek, and with the exception of four years has held the office continuously since. Since his arrival in this place he has continuously filled the office of Notary, is a Republican in politics, a Knight Templar mason and a member of the Grand Army of the Republican.
Unto Mr. and Mrs. Osborn have been born ten children: Rosalin C. who died in infancy; Irwin E. city passenger agent for the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad at Sioux City; Emma A. wife of William F. Newcomb, a resident of Cherokee, Iowa; Lewis who died at the age of one year; Arthur D., of Whatcom, Wash.; Cora M., wife of Lester I. Walrath, of Union City, Wash.; Walter died in infancy; Guy R. who runs the Star Poultry Yard and is connected with the Brush Creek News; Dwight D., who is serving as Deputy Postmaster under his father, and Ralph who is yet at school.
