Vikky Wilburn Anders back again.I have some bits and pieces of info that you might find of interest.
First, let me explain.Lots of gen info, I have gleamed from the internet and added to my database. But ONLY if I feel certain that it is accurate and that it fits with my own research.Now having said that, I still have lots of gaps. But I do have a large enough database now, that I can see patterns of cluster families and even though I cannot tell anyone their exact lineage, I can often point people in the right direction to seek additional clues.And that's what I am attempting to do now.Merely to give you some additional clues.
Where to start???
Okay, let's start with the Edward S Wilburn family who married into the family of Alexander St Clair or Sinclair of Fauquier Co VA.Keep in mind, Kimmyann, that during that era, just about everyone married someone who was related to them, AND that these kinships went on long after folks could even remembered that they were related. Let along how they were kin.Unless, families were well heeled and of some fame, then memories tend to be short lived.At least this is what I am discovering.
Now Edward S Wilburn b c 1730 and who later died in Surry Co NC had ten children.One of his daughters, Lydia B C 1760 married James SLAUGHTER.James Slaughter (appears) to be related to Walter Slaughter b c 1755 in VA who married Suzannah WEBB. Richard Slaughter, son of Walter and Suzannah WEBB Slaughter, married a woman named Elizabeth and they had a son named Walter Lee Slaughter who married Mary Magnalene WILBURN b c 1820.
My hunch is that these families are related, albeit distantly.
It would be very hard to explain. So, I won't try or I would confuse you to no end.But there is a Mercy Webb b c 1712 in VA.She married a Childs...My hunch is that she is related to your early WEBB ancestors.You might wish to see if this checks out...There are also some early ADAMS families too, that connect to her, that you might wish to look at too.
If any of this sounds like something that you wish to explore, let me know and I will send you additional entries on the few early WEBB families that I have in my database.I believe that all of these WEBBS have a common colonial immigrant ancestor.
