There are so many serious mistakes in this record that one is inclined to dismiss the whole thing, but some of it does seem reasonable.  The problems are:  Huntingdon Co., is in PA, not OH; Mary was obviously not born the day she died; there is no such place as "Muskington" though there is a Muskingum Co. (formed in 1804), but it did not exist when Mary was born and neither did Marion Co. (formed in 1820), besides which, Mary was born in PA, not OH; Mary may have been surnamed OBORN, but it's much more likely she was not.  Positives:  Daniel's birthdate and a Huntington Co., PA, birthplace jibe with the census, as do the deathdates.

The May 9 issue of "The Christian Advocate," a Methodist church magazine, contains an article on the divorce problem by  [Rev. J. Wesley Oborn,] a descendent of Daniel Oborn, an early settler of Marion county and a founder of the First Presbyterian church here...
The rest of the article is about divorce.  I quote the opening sentence because it tells us our subject founded the First Presbyterian Church in Marion.
