My Great Grandfather in 1895, when he was 7 years old. Later in life he went to Princeton and was going to run in the Olympics but he injured his leg. I never knew any of this till recently clearing out family attic.
This photo looks like it was attached to some sort of fabric or paper at one time. I don't know who the boy next to him is. I think that the name reads 'Osborne'?

    Yes they certainly do! I do know that he had a younger brother named Joseph, so it is curious to find this photo. I have never read about an Osbourn, maybe it is a cousin. I need to make a family tree chart soon! Thank-you Hedgewalker!

    They loved them big bows.
    Running in the Olympics, dreams cut short by injury... you think that would have come up around the dinner table :)
