Colburn and Other "Ole South" Cousins

Updated September 6, 2000

***
Greetings from the Ole South! I was born September 23, 1953 on the Dahomey Plantation in Bolivar County, Mississippi and attended school in Greenville, Mississippi. Thus, my roots began in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. However, my paternal great-grandparents, Julia Ann AVERY/AVERETT and Andrew Jackson COLBURN, had removed from the Perry/Hale County, Alabama area to the rural, hill country of Calhoun County, Mississippi in the late 1800s.
This site is dedicated to finding and sharing information concerning my COLBURN and AVERY ancestors and their descendants. Through the years, the two surnames have been spelled in various ways:

COALBORNE- COBERN - COBOURN - COBURN - COEBOURNE - COLBERN - COLBORN - COLBORNE - COLBOURN - COLBOURNE - COLBURN - COLBURNE - COLEBORN - COLEBURN - COULBORN - COULBORNE - COULBOURN - COULBOURNE - COULBURN -- AVARY - AVARETT - AVARETTE - AVERY - AVERETT - AVERETTE - AVERITT - AVERITTE

And with some interesting twists--ABRAHAM forebears of Jewish descent who adopted the anglicized AVERY, COCKBURN forebears of Irish descent who adopted the anglicized COLBURN and KALKBRENNER forebears of German descent who adopted the anglicized COLBURN

In particular, I am interested in the COLBURN and AVERETT families who settled in and around Perry County and Hale County, Alabama in the early 19th century, having migrated there from the Carolinas and Virginia.
