I have been working on my brickwall of Nancy Kilborn (Kilbourne) for years. I have her marriage record to
Martin Eggleston, Marr int Sept 27 1802, Middlefield, Hampshire Co MA. Martin was the son of Benjamin Eggleston and Mary Gordon. The problem is that I have been unable to determine who her parents/siblings were.
Working under the theory that perhaps Nancy's father and Benjamin Eggleston perhaps had business dealings of some type together in/around Middlefield, I found several land records in Hampshire Co that mention Samuel Kilborn. The records were located in the Grantee/Grantor Index, however I've been unable to determine the correct film numbers that have the actual land deeds. Samuel was also the plaintiff in several court cases in the Court of Common Pleas.
In addition to this Samuel Kilborn, I have found references (also in the Hampshire Co Grantee/Grantor index) to other Kilborns - ie Benjamin Kilborn, Jonathon Kilborn, Calvinia Kilborn, Freeman Kilborn, George Kilborn, Martha Kilborn, Hezekiah Kilborn.
Can anyone please tell me if they might be familiar with this Samuuel Kilborn? Is he mentioned in the Payne/Kenyon Kilborn book anywhere? In the 1800 Hampshire Co census, there is a Samuel in Buckland and another Samuel Kilbourn in Wilbraham. Has anyone come across any dealings with Kilborn/Eggleston together?
In Middlefield, the ONLY mention of the Kilborn surname in the vital records is the marriage record of Nancy Kilborn and Martin Eggleston.
Any help is appreciated.
