Kilborn Family Genealogy Forum
I am searching for the parents of great grandmother, EMMA LOUISE KILBORN OR KILBURN, born 23, Sept, 1834 at Derby, Orleans Co, Vermont. She was a school teacher in the Lafayette, Tippicanoe CO, Indiana schools in 1854. She Married my great Grandfather, JAMES MADISON SHIPP, 13. Sept, 1856 in Lafayette Indiana. Lived and raise her children in Boswell, Benton, Indiana. Died, may 1904 in Yates Center Kansas and is buried in Boswell, Benton, Indiana. May Have found her brother, S. Lawson Kilborn, born 28, Dec, 1835, Kingston, Onterio, Canada and was raised in Monroe Co, New York. His bio in Clark CO, Illinois states his parents were William Kilborn and Catherine Powell. Please help me and give me any suggestions. I have searching for 25 years for her parents. I found Catherine Kilborn in the 1850 Monroe County, New York with the following children listed: Hiram,Laura, Emma, and Lawson. THe ages are right for Emma and Lawson. In Lawson Kilborn's bio of Piatt Co, Illinois (1909) it states that Lawson and Emma attended
Rigia Academy 1852-1853. Catherine , an older married daughter, and her family, Hiram, Emma and Lawson came to Lafayette, Indiana.1853 Ihave found Emma and Lawson teaching school in Lafayette city schools, 1854. I have Not been able to find a death date or place for Catherine in Indiana or Monroe County, New York. I pray that some one can help me find this brickwall that I have worked on for 25. Thank your effort in my behalf. Ramona Shipp Shuldberg.
