Osborn-Detroit | ... in the spirit of service


In the late 19th century, Francis C. Osborn, originally from the Syracuse, NY area, settled in Detroit, Michigan. He met and married Laura Freele of Huntington, Indiana. He was a noted inventor and industrialist, and she served for many years on the Detroit school board. They had two daughters (Laura and Ruth) and a son (Francis, Jr. - my paternal grandfather).

I submitted a successful application for my great-grandmother, Laura Freele Osborn, to be inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame (Lansing, Michigan) in October 1995.
