Query: KILBORN/KILBURN/POWELL of Tippecanoe and Benton counties

KILBORN/KILBURN/POWELL--I am searching for the parents of my great-grandmother, Emma Louise KILBORN or KILBURN, who was born 23 September 1834 in Derby, Orleans County, Vermont. She was a schoolteacher in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana in 1856. She married my great-grandfather, James Madison SHIPP, 13 September 1856 in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana. She lived and raised her children in Boswell, Benton County, Indiana. She died in May 1904 in Yates Center, Kansas, but was buried in Boswell, Benton County, Indiana.

Emma’s brother may have been S. Lawson Kilborn, born 28 December 1835 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and raised in Monroe County, New York. His bio in a Clark County, Illinois history says that his parents were William Kilborn and Catherine POWELL.

Any suggestions appreciated--I have been searching for her parents for 18
years.
