I have a decent size file of the surname KILBURY. I am willing to share this information with anyone with similiar interests. One of my chief searches at the moment regards the original progenitor of the family in America. His name was John Kilbury. He was born somewhere in England or Ireland between 1725 and 1750. Of his English life I know only what has been traditionally stated. Namely that he served seven years in the British Navy and was discharged in an American Port. We know he then lived and died in the state of Vermont and he first appears in America in 1770. He had an English wife whose maiden name I don't know but her given name was Zerviah. I would like to know all his VRS and something about his Naval service period. Can anyone Help?
My file now contains thirteen generations and about seventeen hundred individuals. Thus far my research convinces me that all the Kilburys in America are related to the original John
Kilbury. My wife Thelma Ruth Kilbury Ridder is in the seventh generation. Incidentally for anyone interested John Kilbury was a veteran of the Revolutionary War making all his descendants eligible for membership in the DAR.
