Ogden's father was John Mars b. Terra Haute, IN 1830 parents b. PA, his mother was Mary Medora Osborne b.11.7.1833, Deleware OH, her parents David Smith Osborne, b.Wilksbarre PA, 2.12.1808, and Clarrisa Murray, b. Utica NY, 6.16.1810

My quest is to seek the ancestry of John Mars and his parents identity, and family in IN and PA.

John and Mary's family, with the parents, David S and Mary Osborne settled in the counties of IL just west of Terra Haute IN (Mary passed on in 1875, John remarried, Jane Kimber a year later)

If anyone can link them to a Greenough family I would be appreciative. We don't know the reason behind Ogden's middle name.

Thanks. - Jerry Ellis
