1790 Census, St. Stephen’s Parish, Charleston, South Carolina. It could be that Richard Wilburn can be seen in the 1790 Census. He is a free white male, 16 years and up. But this identification with the Richard in Edgefield is not certain.
1820 Census, Edgefield, SC
3 boys under 10
1 male 26-44
3 girls under 10
1 woman 16-26
In the 1820 Census, ancestry.com has mistranscribed his name as Rick. But it’s clearly Rich’d. They owned one male slave under 14, two girls under 14, and a woman 45+
I hope this helps.
