Searching for information on Henry Ransom Kilburn.Recently found a letter from a great Aunt stating that Henry came to America directly from England at 3 years of age.That his mother was named Sarah and was a Hunt and that Henry had a stepfather.Word has it that he came through New York – but have also heard that they may have immigrated directly in CT.
Henry's mother was a Sarah b. c. 3/1810 - but we have Crandall as her name when she died in our Kilburn family bible.This was supposively in or near Hannibal MO in 6/12/1860.Maybe she remarried to a Crandell – Henry’s step father??
Henry Ransom Kilburn - b. 6/8/1831d. 5/27/1910 married Sophia Henrietta Wharram 1853
Henry's son: Robert Lawson - b. 4/12/1865d. 5/9/1941 married Mary Evelyn Carter
ALSO… Recently found a Henry Kilburn christened on 11/3/1831 in Yorkshire England, born to a Sarah and John Kilburn.The Sarah was Christened 5/2/1810. These dates coincide with dates we’ve received listed above.But there is limited information on the John from Yorkshire England.Henry Ransom did have several children – one named Robert (Sarah Hunt’s father was Robert Hunt) and one named John (Henry’s father).This may just be coincidence – but I think I am getting close – does anyone have any info that would support this – or deny it??
The Sarah Hunt located on Jesus Christ – Church of Latter Day Saints web page’s father was Robert Hunt b. 1770 in Wilts, England and Married Mary Horsell b. 1774 on 24th of May, 1795.
