I will ask my brother Vaughn if he will consider it.
Please email details straight to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would not be surprise me that there is a link. From my other brothers research (you see him on the boards alot - George Hilburn) our Hilburns were in the Carolinas from Virginia since about the 1750's or so. There is a discernable trace of Vaughn/Vaughan/Von/etc Hilburns that run from Isle of Wight VA into Georgia on to Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and Oklahoma. Its not a common combination but one that does occur in our family line alot.
Does it appear in yours?
