I am looking for the heirs of William and Delilah Kilburn of Wooton of Leslie County. Particularly the children or grandchildren of one daughter they had named Cassie, who we think married Israel maggard. any information anyone has regarding ANY of the heirs, please respond. I did notice that one person on here named "gray" mentioned both William & Delilah a couple years ago, more particularly their son Ira. Gray hasn't been back on here in a couple of years, unless this person changed their name.. Following is a list of their children per a Will written by William in 1903: john; martin; Cassie maggard; sis qualls (later identified as Jenny Qualls); carter ; Polly Ann; Jane and Dave; and Washington, IRA, Blaine, Logan, Nannie bell, Margaret, and Harrison; in the will, Wm. refers to Delilah as Lila. research shows that Nannie bell married Chris baker; Polly Ann married HC Caudill; it gives Cassie and Jennie's married names as Cassie Maggard and Sis Qualls; ANY information anyone may have is greatly appreciated.

Do you have William Kilburns birth and death dates? Also Delilah's? I would be willing to research it for you at Ancestry.com if you do not have an account there. I have a few other accounts with Family Tree websites and would be glad to help. Thanks
The will is all I have that is for certain because it is in William's handwriting... an Affidavit of Descent states that he died in 1902 and Delilah died in 1933, however, Wm. signs the will on July 8, 1903 and it is probated and entered for record on December 31, 1903, per clerk J.M. Howard.

I am related to Isreal Maggard who was married to Cassie Kilburn they had the following children : Mary, Samuel and Matilda. Before Isreal married Cassie, he was married to Sarah Wooton and they had the following children : John and Nancy. Nancy Maggard was my great grandmother.
Carolyn, i cannot find the 1930 census for leslie county... do you know the site where i can get it?
Dragonfly, according to the census, by Samuel's age, he would have had to been a child of israel's first marriage or that would put cassie 11 years old giving birth... anyway, do you know if there are any living children of Cassie's namely, mary and tilda/matilda? these two girls would be the only bloodline that we are looking for because it is Cassie's parents children/grandchildren i need to find.... you all dont know how much i appreciate your information... thanks again
