ERRATA
NAMEDESCRIPTION OF ERRORREPORTED BY
OSBURN *1 This couple are my great-grandparents. OSBURN should actually be Osborne, although the family was also know as Osmond. In fact sometime in the 1930's or 40's the Osborne spelling disappears from subsequent records of her children from her first marriage. I also believe the age of Benjamin Knee is incorrect. If the birth date on his headstone in Corner Brook is accurate he was 39 on June 7, 1905. Ellen's proper name was actually Sophia Ellen Osborne (maiden name Dyke) Daryl Knee
