Re: Thomas Hilburn b. ca 1834 South Carolina
Check the Sanford Co, AL census in 1870. I believe you will find your Thomas Hilburn, son of Hillary/Hillery there. There is a Thomas T wife Margaret, he is 34 she 35.
In 1880 Lamar Co., AL, are T.T. Hilburn age 45 and wife M.A age 46. He born in SC, she born Tenn.
I am descended from Thomas' sister Louisa.
