Seeking information on Wilbourn and Emily after 1850. They were in Harris Co. Georgia. Wibourn was son of Laban. Emily's last name was Hopkins. They show 3 sons and 3 daughters. Two of the sons Josiah and George washington married Gray sisters from Alabama and went to Louisiana.
My grandfather was Jackson Robert Moncrief b 2-29-1852. He had a brother Isaiah S Moncrief b Dec 1850. Isaiah's death certificate list his father as Wilburn Moncrief of Harris Co Georgia. The information was listed by his son Albert. From family lore from my grandfather Otis Wilburn Moncrief, Jackson's mother was a Hopkins and he had brothers that went to Ruston La area. This fits with the Wilbourn Moncrief family. Jackson know as "Jack" married Mary Jane Chandler in 1877 in Talledega County Al. This is where the Gray family was in 1860. Jackson and Isaiah moved to Jefferson County Alabama in 1890. They lived in the Chalkville/Pinson very near the Emmma Emily Moncief Baggett family. Emily was daughter of Josiah Moncrief who married Will Baggett. Hoping to find where and when Wilbourn and Emily died and where they are buried. Jack had another brother John that was a banker. Josiah and George W both had sons named John Wilburn. My father name was Wilburn Clayton Moncrief. Mary Jane Chandler's brother married Mary Ann Moncrief that could be daughter of Wilbourn.
