Re: WILBER and allied families of MA

In Reply to: WILBER and allied families of MA by Charles Kell Jr of 486

Mr. Kell:

My name is David B. Wilber and I was from Dudley, Mass. before moving out to Oregon. I doubt we are related as my Wilber family came into the USA with my great grandfather, Lawrence Benjamin Wilber, from Sweden. He lived in Attleboro, Bristol Co., and had a milk route in Pawtucket, R.I. My grandfather William Walter Wilber was born in Pawtucket, R.I. and my father Andrew Huntington Wilber was born in Attleboro, Mass but lived in West Medway, Mass. His mother was Hilda Victoria Rosell. I haven't traced the family back to Sweden and I have been told that the name was originally Wahlberg or something similar. How it became WILBER I probably will never know.
