Jonathan Milbourn/Milburn appears on the Tithable lists in Loudoun Co. from 1769- 1806. From 1802-1805 his entry says Jonathan Milburn and son Jonathan. In 1810 it says Mrs. Milburn and son Jonathan. The 1810 census lists an Elizabeth Milburn as head of household - over 45 years old in Loudoun Co - the only Milburn other than son Levi.

An inventory of Jonathan Milburn's (deceased)estate was made in 1809. Also in 1809 Elizabeth Milburn is granted a certificate for obtaining letters of administration of the estate of Jonathan Milburne, deceased.

From all of this I have made the assumption that Jonathan Milburn was married to Elizabeth Iden, but I don't think she was the father of his children Andrew, b. 1763, or Peter, born 1770. I don't think she was old enough.

I would really like to find more data to verify this and especially determine when they were married.
