James Gilborne and Jane

Another tree originating in Co. Laois is headed by James Gilborne, and his wife Jane. Nothing is known of them and all that is known of their children is after they arrived in the U.S.A The descedants of their eldest known child, Henry, settled in Pennsylvania. One of Henry's great grandsons married someone from the prominent Kerr family, and a family history book 'The Kerr Families of Early Oil Creek Township, Crawford County, Pa.', writing about the Gilborns claims:'Traditionally the family (name originally spelled Gilborne) originally came from Queens County (Co. Laois), Ireland, and first settled in New York City.' No evidence of them has been found in New York City, But James died in Cherry Valley, Otsego County, N.Y., in 1847.
Further information on this family was provided by another of Henry's descendants.Nettie Bell Rater married Herman H Alday in Buffalo, Erie, N.Y. She kept notes on the family in her wedding album. For the Gilborne family she wrote:

These facts for the female children are largely correct, though three other females are known. The two unnamed males are still to be identified. It has not been possible to confirm Henry Gilborn's birth date, but his descendants are well known.
James' children as identified by Nettie are:
Female - Marie - dressmaker. Maria, the youngest child, born about 1831 in Ireland; Married Jacob Edgar Wilson about 1850; Bore 2 children and died 10 March 1852 at Rattan, Monmouth, N.J.
Female - no name - married a man named Driffles Martha, 6th child, born June 1830 in Ireland. Possibly the Martha, daughter of James of Ballylusk and his wife, Jane, baptised 14 March 1830 at Ballyfin, Co. Laois (with incorrect date of birth in the US 1900 census). Married James M. Ripple, date unknown, in New York State. Legal suit between James Ripple and Henry Gilborn in the 1850s became enshrined in U.S. case law. No children, but raised her niece Charlotte Rogers, daughter of Martha's sister Jane. James M Ripple died in Cherry Valley in 1911, Martha died ther in 1915. Both are buried in Cherry Valley Cemetery.
Female - no name - married a man named Edward Sales Susan, born August 1819 in Ireland, married Edward Sale/Sales/Sayles. Had 1 child, Edward jr., born ca. 1844 in Ireland (Aged 6 in 1850 census even though DoB given as 1851 in 1900 census); U.S. Immigration before 1850 (even though 1854 given on 1900 census). Edward sr. died 1867. Susan died 1904 and was buried in Ames Cemetery, Montgomery Co., N.Y.
Male - no name - died in US as a young man. Was not married. Remains unidentified (Could this be Emanuel Rogers, husband of James' daughter, Jane? He has not been traced after 1870. It seems unlikely.)
Male - no name - got into a family dispute. Left home and told family he was going to sea. Remains unidentified.

The additional daughters of James that have been identified are:
Fannie GilborneSecond child, born 4 June 1819 in Co. Laois. Immigrated 1845.In Canajoharie in 1850, living with sister Maria rogers and her husband Jacob.

NY City deaths gives death 29Feb1912, bur 3Mar1912, father: James, mother: Jane Milburn; Invalid aged 92. Her will identifies Martha Ripple and Jane Rogers as her sisters.
Anna Gilborne Fourth child. Anna has not been identified in any official record, but this advert appeared in the Boston Pilot Newspape:18 October 1851
Jane Gilborne Fifth child. Born in Ireland about 1824 from her ge in the 1860 census, but her gravestone says born 1829. Marreid seaman Emanuel Rogers, born in Portugal according to the 1850 census, but the West Indies according to the 1860. Six children born between 1850 and 1865, after which Emanuel has not been found. Jane died in Brooklyn December 1871 and was buried in Greenwood Cemetery.

Footnote: Why is there only one child's baptism in Ballyfin parish records? The records begin in 1824. They are also absent from the Rosenallis parish records.
