      According to Tracey & Dern's Pioneers of Old Monocacy (1987), a Benjamin Osborn appears in a list of petitioners seeking the creation of All Saint's Parish in 1742 through division of Prince George's Parish.

      The Mobberleys drifted westward. In 1742 a group of settlers petitioned for creation of All Saints Parish (out of Prince George's Parish), which may have been the beginning of Frederick County. Among them were Edward Mobberley, his two sons, Wm and Clement, Jno and Elias Delashmett and Benjamin Osborn. Son, Wm, was to marry Ann Osborne, likely the daughter of Benjamin. Mary Delashmett, daughter of Jno, became the mother of one of Edward Mobley's descendants
