I have been out of touch with my Milburn research buddies for years and am hoping they see this and get back in touch.

I've made a lot of progress over the past few years on our Loudoun Co., VA Milburns. Based on land and tax records I believe that a Jonathan Milburn from New Jersey was the first of this line in Loudoun Co. It appears that he arrived around 1768 and had sons Andrew, Peter, Levi, Jonathan and possibly David. Also at least one daughter, Hannah, who married Joel Nixon. Jonathan was married to Elizabeth Iden, daughter of Samuel Iden, but it is unclear how many children she is the mother of.

Andrew, born 1763 in NJ, was the son of Jonathan and married Sarah Reeder and moved to Campbell Co., VA and then Columbiana Co., OH. He WAS NOT the son of Andrew of Frederick Co., VA like so many people insist.

Peter married Jemima Dillon and also settled in Columbiana Co., OH. He had children, Keziah, Andrew, Thomas, Deborah, Josiah, Jane and Sarah. He died about 1815 and Jemima moved her family to Wayne Co., OH. I have information about each of these families.

I have much more information and my sources for those interested. Respond here or contact me through my email.
