These are two seperate Coburn families.

Child of SAMUEL COBURN and SARAH BRADSTREET is:
2. i. SAMUEL2 COBURN,JR., b. 23 Feb 1783, Dracut Vrx,Middlesex,Massachusetts; d. 17 Feb 1861, Floyd County,Kentucky or Almena,Van Buren County,Michigan.

Generation No. 2
2. SAMUEL2 COBURN,JR. (SAMUEL1) was born 23 Feb 1783 in Dracut Vrx,Middlesex,Massachusetts, and died 17 Feb 1861 in Floyd County,Kentucky or Almena,Van Buren County,Michigan. He married MARY UNKNOWN Abt. 01 Feb 1808 in Floyd County,Kentucky. She was born Abt. 1783 in North Carolina, and died in Floyd County,Kentucky.


This Samuel 2 Coburn is NOT a child of Samuel Coburn and Sarah Bradstreet. This Samuel was a descendant of the James L Coburn line. His parents are Samuel Coburn and Margaret Burnette Cathey and he was born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. His wife was Mary, Unk. He died in Floyd Co, Kentucky.

If you are researching the Chester Co, PA - Virginia - Kentucky and West Virginia Coburns, i have a lot of information. The Dracutt, Mass. and Martin County, NC Coburns are two different families.

Surnames: Coburn, Neely
I'm a descendant of James Polk Coburn of Floyd County, Kentucky (aged 24 in the 1870 Floyd Census, married to Clarinda [Neely], aged 19). Their daughter was Emma Coburn (my great-grandmother). I understand that James' father was John or John C., but I don't have much of anything beyond that. It sounds from your message like both Coburn lines are in Floyd County -- would you happen to recognize any of these names? I'm not certain at all which group I belong to.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Surnames: Coburn, Grigsby, Casebolt, Terry
Hello,
I would appreciate any help you may offer. My great grandmother was born a Coburn around 1857 in eastern KY. I'm unsure what her given name was but she went by "Renie" and "Rean".She married William "Barlow" Grigsby (1854-1910) and had about 11 children with him. She married Daniel Casebolt/Terry (1869-1919) in 1911. Granny Rean died in 1932 and is burried in the Grigsby/Ratliff Cemetery in Leburn KY. I believe her father was either James or George.

Please contact me at Pogo207@AOL.com reference Rena. I believe her name was actually Lorena and she was one of the daughters of George C Coburn and one of his wives, Louisiane. His other wives were Susan Brown and Mary Polly Prater. Rena's sister Armizenda married one of the Ratliff twins and that may be why she is buried where she is.

Stella Cottrell, in the original post gave wrong information. She combined two Coburn families that are not related into one family through their sons both named Samuel. DISREGARD what Stella Cottrell wrote in the original post.

The first of the two Coburn families Stella Cottrell combined are descendants of Edward Colburn from England who purchased land in Dracutt on the Merrimac, then pretty much populated Massachusettes. Samuel and Mary Bradstreet's Samuel married Sarah Bradstreet in Massachusettes. All of his children were born there and many of their children were, too. My guess is that he also died in Dracut.

The second family, (yours) are descendants of James L Cobun (Coburn) of Chester County Pennsylvania who settled in Virginia. James L's parents were William Coebourne and Mary Baker who were both born in England and died in Pennsylvania.

According to your linage, you are related to Samuel Coburn and Margaret Burnette Cathey. Captain Samuel Coburn came from North Carolina with Daniel Boone. (Do NOT confuse another non-related major Coburn family from Martin County, North Carolina.)

Please contact me privately (Pogo207@aol.com)for Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia Coburn/Cobun/Coeburn linage.
