Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born September 24, 1941 in Hunt County, Texas to William Odell Wilburn and Thelma Frances House. Until 1957, I lived in Hopkins County, Texas and then moved to Dallas, Texas. I married Susan Tidwell in 1968. We have three children, Jennifer, Matthew and Kelley. Except for the four years, 1973-1977, when we moved to Columbia, South Carolina, we have continued to live in Dallas. Susan retired in 1996 after 20 years as a dental hygienist and I retired in 1999 after 29 years as a Systems Engineer with Electronic Data Systems.
Update: In 2006 we moved to Emory, Texas.

Hello Charles. Im interested in Felix Grundy Wilburn, 1802-1881. First concern is I've found his name in some records as Felix Galimon Wilburn. Second concern is his marriage date to Lydia Beller in Madison County, Alabama. I live in Huntsville, the county seat of Alabama. I have checked the records in the courthouse in the Marriages from 1809-1899. It lists Felix G. Wilburn married Lydia on April 9, 1823 in Volume 3, page 228. The marriage date I have in my database is April 11, 1823. What date do you have for their marriage?

Wilburn connection
Hello Charles. My grandmother is Lola Lee Wilburn and married my grandfather Louis John Muery. I was born in Ft. Worth and moved to Huntsville, AL when I was 6 yrs old. My father is Robert Wilburn Muery. I have an extensive amount of Wilburns; btw, you are in my database. You were born in Lome, Hunt Co., TX?

My cousin, Lee Etta Sloan, has been to one of the Wilburn Reunions in AR. Have you been to any of these? Do you know who I can contact for information; I would like to go just once.

Thank you for the information and I will post it immediately.

RE: Wilburn @ Chatt-Jesse Cem.
Hello Charles,
I transferred the Wilburn surname to your care, now U can manipulate and add as U desire.
As to the others, findagrave has strict regulations on what can be transferred to whom and the other surname falls outside that area. I will double check with my findagrave group that meets once a month and see what they say, if so, I'll take care of it next month.
My problem is that I have already upset the findagrave people with some of my shenanigans and they might take offense which could lead to me being barred, don't want that.
The Chatt-Jesse Cemetery was a real trip, both to locate and photograph. I went out there because the fotos were grossly under represented and I hoped to make a difference, seems that I did since U have contacted me. Glad that I could provide the fotos of ur ancestors and hope they provided U some info on ur genealogy trail.
later, James Coston

Wilburn @ Chatt-Jesse Cem.
Evening Charles,
I "think" I did the corrections properly, check'em out and see if I got confused, HA !!!
That happens on occasion when U turn 65.
If U would like control of the memorial, let me know and I'll gladly pass it over to U.
Later, James Coston
