Query: KILBORN or KILBURN of Tippecanoe and Benton counties, Indiana

KILBORN/KILBURN—Searching for the parents of my great-grandmother, Emma Louise KILBORN or KILBURN. She was born 23 September 1834 in Derby, Orleans County, Vermont and died in May 1904 in Yates Center, Woodson County, Kansas. She was a schoolteacher in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana in 1856 and married James Madison SHIPP there on 13 September 1856. They raised their children in Boswell, Benton County, Indiana and are both buried there.

Emma may be the same as Emma L. Kilborn (born about 1833 in Vermont) who is in the 1850 census in Chili, Monroe County, New York, in the household of Catharine Kilborn (born about 1796) and other children Hiram N. (born about 1831), Laura E. (born about 1826) and Lawson A. (born about 1836). There is an S. Lawson Kilborn (born 28 December 1835 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada) who was a teacher in Piatt County, Illinois in the late 1800’s. A biography on him from Clark County, Illinois states his parents were William Kilborn and Catherine POWELL.

If you have any information on this family, please contact Ramona S. Shuldberg (3282 S. 100 E., Bountiful UT 84010; directly.
