Thank you again. Although Alex/Lick/Leck Osborne does not appear to be my ancestor, you did confirm what I had guessed as this person's first name. His maternal grandfather's name was Electius Adams, and the Kentucky death record for Mrs. Mary Osborne has her husband's name as Alexius, I had guessed the first name might be Electius, and found that that name was also a variation of Alexius.
I will look through the 1880 Census and see what I can find for Eliot, Martha and Samuel Osborne. Many thanks again!
