In politics he was a staunch Democrat, though he never coveted political power or office. He was one of the most successful farmers of his town. No man in Farmington was more generally loved.

D. HENRY OSBORNE - 1819 1905 (profile picture)
A memorial service in honor of the late D. Henry OSBORNE was held at the Presbyterian church, Wednesday evening. Addresses were made by the pastor, W. A. HIGINBOTHAM and Dr. James F. DRAPER. Mr. HIGINBOTHAM telling of business and social relations with Mr. OSBORNE and Dr. DRAPER speaking appreciatively of the deceased as a co-laborer in the work of the church. A letter from Mrs. Caroline GALLUP, who was unable to be present, was also read.
Mr. OSBORNE became a member of the church in 1848, while it was still under Congregational government. In 1858 the church determined to adopt the Presbyterian form of government and at the first election, Mr. OSBORNE was chosen as elder, which office he retained until his death. To him was given the honor of representing the church at the meeting of Rochester Presbytery at which the First Presbyterian Church of Victor was admitted to that body. Mr. OSBORNE was also elected a trustee of the church in 1858, and served in that capacity for six terms. He was a deacon for 41 years, having been elected in 1863. Intensely interested in the welfare of the church, Mr. OSBORNE gave unsparingly of his energies and administrative talents to the duties of his official positions and his wise counsel and loyal co-operation will be sadly missed by his associates. The death of D. Henry OSBORNE removes one who was indeed a tower of strength to the church. (buried in Boughton Hill Cemetery)
