27 Shared DNA Matches with David Kilborn’s Descendants (Blog 51)

DNA matches with Kilborn ancestors led to hints – then sources – (wills and land records) that helped prove that William Kilborn was the father of my ancestor Jane (Kilborn) Evans.   In this post, I review the shared DNA matches I have with descendents of my fourth great grandfather, David Kilborn — currently 27 (there are more but these are individuals who have linked their DNA with a tree that connects back to David or in some cases to a sibling whose tree connects to David.  In some cases I don’t know why Ancestry doesn’t see the connection….).

For each of these 27 cousins that are showing up in ThruLines I reviewed sources and verified their trees verifying our relationships (except the few with private trees).  I then flushed out my Ancestry tree to link it to their living ancestors.  In many cases I’ve been communicating with them as I hunt for others who would like to collaborate in researching David Kilborn. Who knows – perhaps someone in one of these families inherited a family Bible that has more information about David and his children?

Here’s a copy of Ancestry’s ThruLines Relationship Tree for David Kilborn followed by the list of descendents.

David Kilborn Thrulines Relationships

ThruLine List for David KilbornAncestry ThruLines did a very good job of showing the 27 DNA matches I have with other descendents of David Kilborn who have linked themselves to their tree in Ancestry.  Mary Bricea Kilborn is in the tree twice due to a minor error in the tree added by her descendent and the unnamed Kilburn is a duplicate of WILLIAM KILBORN, my ancestor – believe this will flush out to look like a correct tree of the family members with whom I have DNA matches if the owners of these trees fix glitches or flush out their trees.

David Kilborn DNA Matches via Mary Bricea Kilborn names blocked outI clicked on the down arrow to the right of Mary Bricea Kilburn and Mary Bricea Kilborn and am sharing the image shown with the names and pictures of these individuals blocked out for their privacy.  It’s interesting to see the variation of centimorgans shared with the same relationships – from 43 cM to 8 cM.

Hopefully my matches with David’s descendents will increase over time as more individuals complete a DNA test and link their DNA to a tree that shows themselves.

If you are a descendent of David Kilborn and have your DNA with Ancestry, I’d be interested in knowing who is showing up as a shared match with you in ThruLines or would just love to hear from you!  Also I’d love to hear from you if your DNA is in FamilyTreeDNA or GEDMatch as I’d be interested in learning what chromosomes are being shared via David’s lines.

David Kilborn of New Haven, New York signed a very detailed will on April 8, 1839 and added a codicil on May 27, 1842 which replaced one of the named executors who had died.  A summary of the will is followed by a transcription.

His beloved wife Eleanor who he gives half his personal estate on lot number 83, one half of the farming interest and one half of the furniture during her natural life.

My Fourth Great Grandfather, David Kilborn (1767-1846) was a Spy during the War of 1812 (Blog 49)

David Kilborn, the third son of Lt Benjamin and Lucy (Bishop) Kilborn was born in Litchfield, Connecticut on February 21, 1767.  About 1780, David’s father who agreed with the concept of British rule and wanted to live under the King’s rule emigrated with his family to Elizabethtown, Brockville, Canada.  About 1787 David married Hannah White, the daughter of Loyalist Joseph and Sarah (Noyes) White who had moved to Canada in 1784.

Shortly thereafter, war raged along the Canadian border where the Kilborn’s lived and while some of David’s children entered the military on Canada’s side in the War of 1812, David whose heart was still with the United States was recruited by General Wilkinson, in the Secret Service of the United States to spy for the United States.  According to his petition for renumeration to the Committee on Military Affairs, David secretly visited the British posts in Canada and provided General Wilkinson with information pertaining to the British numbers and positions. He was captured, sent to prison, told he would be put to death, escaped again, was captured a second time, was told again he would be put to death and escaped crossing the border into the United States.

After his escape, David moved to Scriba, New York living near the Canadian border so that he could stay in touch with his children most of whom remained in Canada. On Nov 9, 1832 he purchased part of Lot 83 on the nineteenth township of the Scriba’s Patent in New Haven, New York containing about 45 acres from John Richardson for $1000.  With the help of the New Haven historian, we’ve learned that this property was on the south side of NY Route 104, east of County Route 43 (Tollgate Rd) beyond the top of the hill heading towards the town of Mexico.

David petitioned the United States Congress multiple times for compensation and for the loss of his property in Canada.  A formal report was given to the Committee on Military Affairs on February 22, 1830 where he requested reimbursement for $10,000.  Multiple iterations of his request continued and finally in 1837, when David was 70, Congress approved the Act of March 3, 1837, to pay David Kilborn, of Oswego, N. Y. , $2500 for property destroyed, War of 1812.

David’s wife Hannah died about 1821 and sometime thereafter he married Eleanor (Hill), the widow of Dyer Howard.  While in New Haven he became active in the Methodist Church and the Mexico, New York Anti-Slavery Society.  David wrote a very detailed will on April 8, 1839 and died before March 7, 1846.  He was buried in the New Haven Cemetery.

On March 7, 1846, Orvis Hart, the surrogate for the minor heirs of David’s son William petitioned the court asking to ensure they were represented in David’s probate.  David’s will was proven on May 12, 1846 — probate continued through 1848.

A summary of David’s life can be found in Payne Kenyon Kilbourn’s The History and Antiquities of the Name and Family of Kilbourne.  David did die before 1847 as his will was proven in mid 1846.

Kilbourne Payne Kenyon, The History and Antiquities of the Name and Family of Kilbourne, (in its Varied Orthography) (New Haven- Durrie &amp; Peck, 1856), page 169-70; David Kilborn page 1130. DAVID, b. in Litchfield, Feb. 31, 1767; m. Hannah White, daughter of Joseph White, a loyalist of New Hampshire, and settled on the Canada side of the St. Lawrence, a few miles below Brockville.  His children were-Kilbourne Payne Kenyon, The History and Antiquities of the Name and Family of Kilbourne, (in its Varied Orthography) (New Haven- Durrie &amp; Peck, 1856), page 169-70; David Kilborn page 2

Whiting, William, Col. John, Polly, Pamela, Nancy, Abigail, Betsey, Catherine and Bricea.  Though residing in the king’s dominions, he was a republican at heart, and in the war of 1812, he engaged in the secret service of the United States, under the direction of Gen, Wilkinson, in consequence of which his entire estate in Canada was confiscated to the British government.  He soon after removed to Scriba, near Oswego, N. Y., where he continued to reside until his death in 1847.  His services were acknowledged by the American Congress, and appropriations were made by that body to reward him for his services, and compensate him in part for his losses.  The particulars of his transactions &c, will be found in the Appendix of this volume, in the report of the Congressional Committee, and the accompanying documents.

CHILDREN:

Polly Kilborn (abt 1787-before 1846) – married William Henry Eastman – remained in Canada

Whiting Kilborn (abt 1788-1871) – married Mary Wood, remained in Canada, involved in the Methodist Church

LtCol John W. Kilborn (1791-1888) – sergeant in the militia, commissioned a Lt in 1813, participated in attacks against forts in Ogdensburg, NY, ran a store in Brockville, postmaster, justice of the peace, and judge, married Elizabeth Baldwin

Pamela Kilborn (1792-1843) – married Amos Coolidge – moved to Tioga, Pennslyvania

Ann Kilborn (1796-????)

Abigail Kilborn (1797-1860) – married Truman Hurd, remained in Canada

Catharine Kilborn (1798-1864) – married Jehiel Hurd, brother of Abigail’s husband, remained in Canada

Elizabeth Kilborn (1800-1849) – married John Stone, moved to Scriba, New York

David D Kilborn (abt 1801-1846) – married Abigail Rathbun, then Purlina, lived in New Haven, New York

Nancy Kilborn (1801-????) – married Rowland Blackmor

William Kilborn (1802-1845) – married Eliza Lester, remained in Scriba, New York, my ancestor

Mary Bricea Kilborn (1804-1866) – married John Clothier, moved to Canada

I have DNA matches with many descendents of Mary Bricea Kilborn, John W Kilborn, Catherine Kilborn, and Elizabeth Kilborn and many descendents of my own ancestor, William Kilborn.  Someday I’d like to explore Elizabethtown and the surrounding areas of Canada where David lived and to visit New Haven, New York where he settled.

DNA Matches:

via John W Kilborn: 13 cM, 11 cM, 7 cM

via Mary Bricea Kilborn: 39 cM, 22 cM, 18 cM

Research Questions:

Where in Elizabethtown did David Kilborn live before he left Canada and what happened to the property he had owned there?

Is the gravestone in the New Haven Cemetery that of David Kilborn or that of his son David D Kilborn and if the latter, where is David buried?

What happened to David Kilborn’s property when he died? (will have to follow the deeds)

Are there any probate records showing the administration of David Kilborn’s estate?

When and where did David’s second wife Eleanor die and did she remarry?

Probate Records of Mary Ann (Weiler) LaRose (1823-1899) (Blog 48)

Mary Ann (Weiler) LaRose, my third great grandmother, the daughter of Jacob Weiler was born in Pennsylvania about 1822 or 1823.  She married Louis Sherer LaRose in Dayton, Ohio on March 22, 1842.  She and Louis raised six children in Dayton where he worked as a boat captain, a clerk, a bookkeeper for the National Bank, and a notary public. They lived at 11 Bridge, 17 Wilkinson, 225 N. Wilkinson, 543 Third Street in Dayton, Ohio.

After Louis died in 1892, Mary Ann resided at 22 Roe and then with her son William Harper LaRose at 820 S. Wayne.  She died September 16, 1899 in Dayton and was buried in the Woodland Cemetery, Dayton, Ohio next to her husband.

Mary Ann Weiler LaRose Probate Letters of AdministrationMary Ann’s son, Samuel L LaRose was appointed administrator of his mother’s estate and listed his four siblings on the Application for Letters of Administration.

 

 

Mary Ann Weiler LaRose Probate Estate DistributionEach of the five children received $59.20, or one fifth of the estate.

CHILDREN:

Helen Blanche LaRose (1843-1917) – married Eugene Wuichet  [my ancestors]

Jacob LaRose (1849-1860)

Samuel Louis LaRose (1849-1919) – married Fannie Favorite

Mary Hannah LaRose (1851-1940) – married Frank Wuichet, brother of Eugene Wuichet

William Harper LaRose (1855-1908) – married Mary Caroline Tasher

Sarah Elizabeth LaRose (1859-1934) – married Albert Sittle Wuesthoff

Note: I share DNA with five individuals who descend from Mary Ann and Louis Sherer LaRose (Note: if you descend from this couple, it would be helpful if you added a tree to Ancestry and linked it to yourself.)

79 cM – descends from son Eugene Wuichet [my ancestor]

75 cM – descends from son Frank Wuichet

46 cM – descends from son Eugene Wuichet [my ancestor]

39 cM – descends from William Harper LaRose

24 cM – descends from William Harper LaRose

Research needed – some individuals have listed a specific birth date for Mary Ann Weiler — I am still in search for sources for the birth date that is listed and have also asked the for the source they are using.  We are also looking for a copy of her obituary, one of which was published in Lancaster, Pennslyvania.

Eliza (Lester) Kilborn (1804/7-1839), my Third Great Grandmother (Blog 46)

We know very little about Eliza (Lester) Kilborn, as only two sources mention her:

Eliza Lester in Kilbourne Payne Kenyon, The History and Antiquities of the Name and Family of Kilbourne, (in its Varied Orthography) (New Haven- Durrie &amp; Peck, 1856), page 258The History and Antiquities of the Name and Family of Kilbourne, (in its Varied Orthography). states she was the wife of William Kilborn 

OSWEGO COUNTY CEMETERY RECORDS v 1 (n.d.), page 124 WILLIAM KILBORN ELIZA KILBORNHer gravestone which can be found in the Worden Sweet Cemetery in Scriba, New York was transcribed years ago before the images faded.

Eliza Lester was born in either September 1804 or September 1807, married William Kilborn, raised seven children, and died on January 26, 1839 at the age of 31 or 34 in Scriba, New York .  Eliza had just given birth to her youngest son, George Lewis Kilborn eighteen days before she died and had six other children, ages three to twelve.  Note:  George’s death record lists his mother as Margaret Paddock but we believe George was adopted by Margaret and that Eliza is his mother due to his birth date, her death date and the fact we have a DNA match to his descendent.

Eliza was buried in the Worden Sweet Cemetery in Scriba, New York.  (The reason for the difference in age is because Oswego Cemetery Records state the gravestone says she was 31 and a photo of the gravestone posted on FindAGrave says she was 34 years).

I’ve visited the cute Worden Sweet Cemetery and took pictures of the gravestone which was very difficult to read but unfortunately lost the photos.

Note:  Many folks have Eliza Lester’s death listed incorrectly as 24 January 1842 in Canterbury, Connecticut.  This is a different Eliza, who married a Captain William Lester who died 29 Jan 1847 in Connecticut.  I’ve written to most of those folks, shared this blog and asked them to please correct the information they have shared in Ancestry so that others don’t continue to copy this error.

We’d love to learn more about Eliza, specifically where she was born and who her parents are – perhaps someday we’ll find more information…

CHILDREN:

Eliza Ann Kilborn (1827-1910) married Thomas Volney Kibbe.  They lived in Nelson, New York; Minden, New York; New Milford, Pennslyvania; Oneota, New York; and Syracuse, New York.

Lester B Kilborn (1828-????)

Julia Ann Kilborn (1829-1878) – married George E Hinman.  He lived in Trenton and Holland Patent, New York.

Margaret Jane Kilborn (1833-1874) married Thomas Evans. He lived in Owego, New York and Illinois [my direct ancestor].

William Franklin Kilborn (1834-????) was in Joliet, Illinois in 1857

Bricea M Kilborn (1836-1883) married Albert Russell Thomas.  They lived in Trenton, New York, Owego, New York, and Chicago, Illinois.  In Oct 1887, Bricea’s husband A R Thomas and her daughter Helen B Thomas attended the wedding of Margaret Jane Kilborn’s daughter Donna L Evans.

George Lewis Kilborn (1839-1921) – On July 3, 1863, George lost a leg at the Battle of Gettysburg.  He recovered and moved to Brooklyn where he ran a store for the United States Treasury Department. He married Mary Jane Humphrey and Josephine Fritcher.  He had three children with his first wife.

Eliza Lester was my third great mother.  I share DNA with descendents of Bricea M Kilborn, George Lewis Kilborn and other descendents of Margaret Jane Kilborn.

Eleanor Elizabeth (Dulley) Mullett Rowland of England and Boston, Massachusetts (1789-1876) (Blog 45)

Eleanor Elizabeth Dulley, the daughter of Daniel and Mary Dulley was born in England in 1789.

Marriage Record William Mullat and Eleanor DulleyShe was 17 when she married William Mullett on October 6, 1806 in the Holy Cross Catholic Church in Boston, Massachusetts.

We presume that William died sometime before September 1818 since Marriage Record Thomas Rowland Eleanor (Dulley) Mullet Holy Cross in BostonEleanor married Thomas William Rowland of Wales and Boston on September 8, 1818.  A Daniel Dulley was a witness – we’re unsure if he was her father or perhaps a brother….

We haven’t found any records of Thomas other than his marriage record and his name mentioned in his children’s birth records.  We believe he died before 1833 as we find Eleanor Rowland, a widow listed in Theatre Alley in Boston in 1834, 1837, 1839, and 1840.  In 1842 she had moved to Odean Place.

In 1850 we find Eleanor in Boston with her children from her second marriage living near her daughter Catherine who had married William B Shackford. She is in the 1855 census with two of her children Frances H and James and in 1865 she is living with James.  In 1869 she is living with her son David on 55 Silver Street and in 1870 she is living near her son Edward.

Eleanor died of old age on May 18, 1876 at 458 Shawmut in Boston, the home of her daughter-in-law Anna (McCawley) Rowland.

CHILDREN:

(with William Mullett)

Mary Ann Mullett (1808-1900) – married Walter Moore Leman, a well known actor who performed in Boston and San Francisco.

Edward Mullett (1810-1811)

Catherine T Mullett (1812-1902) – married William Brown Shackford [my ancestor]

(with Thomas William Rowland)

William B Rowland (1819-1855) – worked as a doorkeeper in 1850

James S Rowland (1823-1872) – worked as an engraver

Edward W Rowland (1824-1873) – married Anna McCawley, carriage maker with Isburgh & Rowland

Frances Henry Rowland (1827-1896) – married Mary R Mullin, bookkeeper & coal dealer

David Francis Rowland (1827-1876) – married Jane Kerwin & Marion, collector

We’d love to learn more about Eleanor Elizabeth Dulley, my third great grandmother who was widowed twice while still young and managed to raise two daughters who lived to ages 89 and 91 and five sons who lived to adulthood.
