Ma’am, I have read some of your research on the internet and feel like you might be able to help me.
I am the Great Great Grandson of James H. Wilburn and Elizabeth Burns. I have some sketchy information on them and hope that you might be able to steer me onto some more.
My Great Great Grandparents were enumerated in the 1870 census for Moultrie Co., Marrowbone Township, IL
From this census one can derive that they were married in 1857.
I also records that James was born Oct 1834 in Illinois, that his father was born in Illinois and his mother in Indiana.
Elizabeth Burns was born Dec 1839 in Indiana and both her parents were born in North Carolina.
I hope I have provided enough information to give you a lead-in to my branch of the Wilburns, and look forward to your reply. I anxiously await your reply regardless
