Osborn, Jeremiah

Osborn, Jeremiah a Presbyterian minister, was born in Lenox, Mass., in 1779. He studied theology under Dr. Perkins, and was one of the pioneer ministers of Tioga County, N. Y. He was ordained and installed pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Berkshire, N. Y., in 1806; preached in that place until 1820, when he removed to Candor, in the same county. Here his labors were indefatigable. Oftentimes he was known to start out on a pastoral visitation in the morning, visit from house to house through the day, conduct an evening meeting, and return to his home, not having taken any meal since he left in the morning. He became prematurely old, and was obliged to retire from the active ministry. In 1836 he removed to Ohio, and in 1839, while on a journey to Massachusetts to visit his mother, he died suddenly. Mr. Osborn was a man of grave and dignified deportment, his manner in the pulpit being of this type, and his sermons being always impressed with solemnity. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1868, p. 222. (J. L. S.)
