David,

Yes, what I show is that Robert Willis Wilburn was the son of Robert Wilburn and Eliz Woodson Wilburn. This research was sent to me by Richard L Wilbourn who currently lives in Nelson Co VA. Richard spent many years working on this line. He was kind enough to send me (snail mail) tons of copies of his research. This includes blue prints and copies and pictures of the family plantation.

To my knowledge all Wilburns in Nelson Co VA are descendants of Robert and Eliz Woodson Wilburn...whose ancestors were also in Goochland, VA.

One of the brothers from this family was Richard Eggleston Wilburn, son of William Brook Wilburn a physican. Richard E Wilbourn was with Stonewall Jackson when he fell. I once had a copy of the mini bio written in 1923 by the grandson of Richard E Wilbourn...Just thought that I would add this tidbit due to its historican interest. (This family left VA and relocated to Yobuluska Co MS)

Cheers,

Vikky Wilburn Anders
