2.  Census Index:  Colonial America, 1607-1789 (Broderbund CD-310):  there is no OBORN or OBURN on the CD, and the surnames that could be mis-readings of OBORN appear to be German our subject is said to be Scottish.

3.  1790 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #9 of 12 indexed "Obom"; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
