      The Osborne Questionby A. Russell Slagle
      In past genealogical searches a family legend has persisted that merits a project to check its validity. An account found on page 41 of Walter W. Preston's History of Harford County is as follows:


      Sarah Lindsey was the daughter of Edmund Lindsey and Abigail Dent of Cecil County, Maryland. Abigail was the daughter of Captain John Dent, who died in 1712

      mm - if Abigal dent married Edmund Linday, she had to be born before 1652 for her daughter sarah to be of the right age to marry John Williams by 1684

      birth date of 1690 internet
