Biography* "Burke County, North Carolina Land Records 1778, Vol. I," by Edith Warren Huggins, mentions Richard Osgatharp. In 1778 he had two land entries: "#256, p.86, Richard Osgatharp, 300 acres on east fork Hunting Creek beginning Rasemus Mays, east on Mordice Sutherlands, including Osgatharp's improvement for complement. Entered 19 Feb 1778." Also: "#939, p.311, Richard Osgatharpe, 300 acres on east fork of Hunting Creek and branch of South fork of Catawba, called Monyes Creek, including Thomson's Gap. Entered 21 October 1778." And: "#204, p.69, Rasmous Mays, 640 acres east of Hunting Creek afreeable to conditional line between John Hardin, Richard Osgothorp, William Wocker, Patrick McFaules and John Jewell.

"Burke County, North Carolina, Land Records 1779-1790, and Important Miscellaneous Records 1777-1800, Vol. II," by Edith Warren Huggins, mentions Richard "Ogatharp" or Osgatharp between 1785 and 1792.

"Burke County, North Carolina, Records 1755-1821 (Including Wills Index 1784-1900), Vol. IV," by Edith Warren Huggins, also mentions Richard: "Richard Ozgatharp to Erasmus Mays, 300 a. Hunting Cr. Apr. 10, 1790, ack." And: "p.241: Cleveland Coffee to Joshua Penly, 100 a., May 16, 1793, pr: Rd. Osgatharpe." This is from Burke County Deeds recorded in Court Minutes, 1791-1796, in the book just mentioned. 
Research note*12 Aug 2007 From Linda Humphrey:

Richard was kidnapped from England and sold in the US as an endentured servant. His parents names are currently unknown, but his father was a hat maker in England. This is documented on Erasamus Gaw Osgatharp's Civil War Pension Questionaire (Richard's grandson) as well as in the book "An Osgatharp Descendent" by Betty Foor. It is part of my oral history as well.

From Carol Wilk:

From the book by Betty Foor "An Osgatharp Descendant" and taken from the copies of those pages sent to me by Coretta Denton, Moss, TN 38575: "The census records of 1800 Burke County, NC show Richard Osgatharp and his wife as being the parents of two boys and three girls. One son John was born in 1801 and the family history states that one more daughter was born after the death of Richard. "

"Richard Osgatharp was a Primitive Baptist Preacher. In his book "BURKE" by Edward Pfifer, he mentions Richard as being a delegate from the Catawba Church to a meeting of the Yadkin Association of Baptist Churches.

"It is believed that the Osgatharp family left North Carolina sometime after 1805 and moved to Kentucky, where Richard and his wife died."

"Richard was kidnapped in London and brought to NC at the age of 11 or 12 and sold to a planter to serve till he was 21 years old. When the Rev. War broke out he enlisted with his Master and served 5 years. He then went back and served 1 year. He served in all 6 years of the Rev. Richard was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine,and was in the hospital for 12 months. After he had served 6 years inthe war against England, he decided he would never go back, and just make his home in America. My Great Grandparent was a hat maker by trade." Quoted from son [Erasmus G. Osgatharp's Civil War Record 1922].

Richard Osgathorp was paid 4 pounds, 14 shillings, 6 pence for his Rev. War service for North Carolina. He was paid by David MILLER , Entry Taker for Rutherford County, NC. [Info from RW pay voucher copies in my possession-Carol W]

"Burke county, NC, November 18, 1805. It appears from a Receipt of the Treasurer in this office, that Richard Osgatharp has paid the Purchase-Money for an Entry of Land of One hundred Acres in the County of Burke which Entry is No. 4789" [ the rest is unreadable-Carol ]

Birth of Soncirca 1827 His son Jones Oglethorpe was born circa 1827 at Marengo Co., Alabama
Birth of Son22 Jun 1829 His son James M. Oglethorpe was born on 22 Jun 1829 at Marengo Co., Alabama.1 
1830 Census*1 Jun 1830 He was enumerated in the US Census of 1830 on 1 Jun 1830 at Marengo Co., Alabama. In 1830 John had two sons aged 0-5, and two sons aged 5-10. He also had a daughter aged 10-15. He was aged 50-60, and his wife Elizabeth was 40-50.2 
1840 Census*1 Jun 1840 He was enumerated in the US Census of 1840 on 1 Jun 1840 at Concordia Parish, Louisiana.
(In 1840, John had two sons aged 10-15, and two sons aged 15-20. He was 60-70, and his wife was 50-60.)3 
Death*after 1 Jun 1840 He died at Concordia Parish, Louisiana, after 1 Jun 1840. 
Biography*  John was in the 1807 Tax Digest in Wilkes Co, GA.

By 1816, he had moved to Clarke County, AL, as he had a land grant there that year (See Old St. Stephens Land Office Records & American State Papers Public Lands Vol. I 1768-1888 by Marilyn Davis Barefield, St. Stephens Ledger B, 20 Aug 1814 to 5 Jul 1817, Book 064: 22 Jan 1816, John N. Oglethorpe, lives in Clarke County, Township 8, Range 4.)

There is a power of attorney dated 15 Jun 1820 in Clarke Co., AL, in which a William Kendrick gives John N. Oglethorpe power of attorney to recover profits for him as Trustee of the Estate of Burrell Kendrick. Burrell Kendrick's estate records should be examined.

So it would seem that John N. Jr. was married twice, first to a Miss Kendrick, daughter of Burrell Kendrick. He named a son Kendrick Oglethorpe. And John's son Thomas named a son Burrell K. Oglethorpe, apparently for Burrell Kendrick.

John's wife in 1820 was named Elizabeth, as she gave consent that year for her daughter Elizabeth to marry. She is presumed by this writer to have been his second wife, although that is not entirely clear. By her John apparently had four additional sons in the 1820's, two of whom were James M., and Jones. The other two have not yet been identified.

It is clear that John N. Jr.'s wife in 1830 was younger than he was, and was too young to have been the mother of his eldest children. Also, it seems unlikely that one wife would have had children over a thirty year time span.

By 1840 John N. had moved with his family to Concordia Parish, LA, and seems to have died there before 1850. Estate records in Concordia should be checked.
