William was a mining superintendent in West Virginia before he retired.His wife was Elizabeth, born about 1846 in Ontario, Canada. They had four children: Mary Colbornborn about1868;Frank Colbornborn about 1870,Ladiah (or Lydia) born about 1871, and Harry Colborn born about 1873.
William and his wife may have moved to Virginia from West Virginia. Would appreciate any information asto where William and his wife are buried, and what happened to his children and their descendants. Believe Elizabeth's parents were born in Scotland.
