See my book, Perseverance: A Biography of Captain Richard Eggleston Wilbourn - Chief Signal Officer, 2nd Corps, Army of Northern Virginia, which contains information on the families you mention. On the night of May 2, 1863, Captain Wilbourn of the Confederate Signal Corps was riding along the side of General Stonewall Jackson when a hail of gunfire killed or wounded the general’s escorts. General Jackson lay mortally wounded and he was initially tended by Captain Wilbourn who was a medical student at the University of Virginia when the war began. Jackson would eventually die from his wounds but Captain Wilbourn would retell the events of this fateful night until his death in October 1875.
The life of Captain Wilbourn is a compelling story of strength and perseverance severely tested by the cruel realities of the American Civil War and its aftermath. The book also has complete family lineages in the index that includes the Wilbourn family (aka Wilbourne and Wilburn) and their kindred families of Eggleston, Moseley, Montague, Fancher, Hairston and Tyson. But hurry, Pioneer Publishing Company (www.pioneersoutheast.com) in Carrollton, MS has only 51 copies of the first edition left in stock and they do not plan to publish a second edition. Walter E.
