Subject: Re: Alexandria Maps and My Wilburns in VA
Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2000 18:44:47 EST
I want to thank everyone for their replies concerning my inquiry about
Alexandria maps. The response was overwhelming, and I truly appreciate all
Now, I am fairly new to the list, so I want to post my Alexandria connection:
the Wilburn family as follows. The origins were in MD, moving through DC,
they settled in Alexandria, and later moved on to Fauquier, I am descended
from Ida V. I would appreciate any information anyone might have on the
family. I live in Westchester Co., NY, and was raised in Suffolk County, on
the border of Nassau County. Please let me know if I can help with anything
local here on my end. Happy Hunting.... Erica

says Ida graduated from William and Mary College, but college says no women
were allowed at that time, I would love to find the women’s acedemy she
attended. She also became a member of the Women’s Christian Temperance
Union, and served as secretary. Ida moved to Fauquier from Alexandria with
either her brothers, or parents. Parents seem to go missing abt 1870, still
need to check more censuses. The Family moved to Boston, and later New York.
