Re: William and Elizabeth, NC-TN
Dr. Joseph S. Osment is the nephew of William and Elizabeth.He was the son of Nathan Osment of Bradley County, TN.
Nathan and William were brothers.Their father may have been a John, but I have not verified that information.Both brothers had a son named Nathan, so it also stands to reason that their father was possibly named Nathan.I cannot verify, but believe that these Osments came to TN from Guilford, NC.
William later moved with his family (except for son Nathan who was already of age) to Woodbury, TN.William's brother remained in Cleveland.You will find many of Nathan's descendants in this area, possibly including those of Dr. Jospeh S. Osment.
Let me know if this has helped you in any way, or if you have additional information on this family.Any input you may have is always welcome.
