Not sure whether you're posting a question or an answer, but here's what I have about that couple. (Any corrections are, of course, welcome! As you can see, I've as many questions as answers myself! :-)
1.JAMES CLIBURN was born Abt. 1793 in Robeson Co., North Carolina, and died 1845 in Lawrence Co., Mississippi.He married (1) MARY BARNES 1811 in "Robinson", North Carolina.(?)He married (2) ABIGAIL PITTMAN 1818 (?) in North Carolina.She was born 1802, and died March 04, 1861 in Lawrence Co., Mississippi.
Notes for JAMES CLIBURN:
Moved from Robeson Co., North Carolina, to Monroe Co., Mississippi in 1825. By 1833, living in Lawrence Co., Mississippi
Name in modern family records as "James William Cliburn". Name in LDS database as "James B. Cliburn"
Marriage Notes for JAMES CLIBURN and MARY BARNES:
Possibly Robeson Co., North Carolina. This marriage is uncertain, shown only in LDS records. John Barnes Cliburn could be child from this marriage, based on date of birth.
Marriage Notes for JAMES CLIBURN and ABIGAIL PITTMAN:
Possible dates given in LDS database as late as 1825 & 1836.1825 is possible if John Barnes Cliburn is child of first marriage to Mary Barnes. (LDS records show John Barnes Cliburn's mother as Abigail Pittman.) 1836 is untenable, based on dates of children's births.
