Hello to all. I too am beginning research on Oborne family. My part of the Oborne family came from Muskingdom County, Ohio. Earlier, I believe they settled in up-state New York. Possibly near Montreal. George Oborne of the San Franciso area was one of several brothers, my Grandfather Frank Oborne was George's brother. They were from the Zanesville, Ohio area. There are a number of Oborne's in Montreal and of course, there are many in England. There is a village of Oborne near Sherborne in Dorset. Believe family came to USA from England in the early 1800s. Just beginning my search. Keep in touch.
