There are several Wilburns listed on the same headstone in the Ganado City Cemetery. There are also at least two other Wilburns buried in the same area.

These are the names listed on the same headstone:
William Warren Wilburn
b. 09 Mar 1844, d. 17 Mar 1914
Martha Ann Wilburn
b. 10 Sep 1861, d. 25 Dec 1945
James Charles Wilburn
b. 30 Oct 1871, d. 04 Aug 1904
Emma May Wilburn
b. 22 Mar 1888, d. 03 Sep 1908
Ollie Inez Wilburn
b. 08 Dec 1903, d. 12 May 1904
Mable Ruth Wilburn
b. 23 Nov 1904, d. 07 Apr 1906
Abbie F. Terry
b. 10 May 1841, d. 14 May 1925

Also buried in the same area are William Marvin Wilburn, and his wife, Mammie. William Warren has his name on three different markers: the large one with all of the other family members' names; a veteran's marker with his CSA service; and a broken marker (which may have been moved from the original cemetery).

There isn't any website with a listing of the internments at the Ganado City Cemetery. I had started surveying the cemetery but health problems kept me from completing it. There is a picture of the cemetery on the usgenweb site for Jackson Co. The Wilburn plot is to the left of the picture showing the front of the cemetery.
