Is Kilbourn-340 the dau. of Sarah & Abraham Kilbourne?

+3 votes

Abraham Kilbourne (Kilbourne-82) and his wife Sarah had 5 + children in Glastonbury, Connecticut.  Their son Samuel went to Massachusetts; could their daughter Elizabeth have moved there, too?

1.  Their son Samuel Kilbourn-270:  his profile states Samuel lived in Massachusetts with his father.
2.  Their daughter Elizabeth, b. 19 Feb 1718, MAY be Elizabeth, Kilbourn-340.  
Wiki's "Could this be a match?" may have found her birth parents.  Or not? Please advise; I am intrigued. 
Is Elizabeth Kilbourn, Kilbourn-340, the dau. of Sarah & Abraham Kilbourn?
Here's my source for Elizabeth, daughter of Abraham and Sarah.  
"Connecticut Births and Christenings, 1649-1906," database, FamilySearch ( : 3 December 2014), Abraham Kilborn in entry for Elizabeth Kilborn, 19 Feb 1718; citing ; FHL microfilm unknown.

Quote copied from :


Due diligence:'s collection of vital records turns up nothing for Elizabeth Kilborn in 1718 in any town they have, which includes Lancaster, and nothing is found in Lancaster VRs for any Kilborn, Kilborne, Kilbourn, etc., prior to 1740. I believe this unsourced date is bogus. Chances are Elizabeth is the daughter of Jacob Kilbourne and Dorcas Harris of Rowley, bp. 3 Mar 1722-3. This family moved to Lancaster "some years earlier" than 17 Feb 1744-5 when the mother was formally dismissed to Lancaster, and brothers Joseph and Isaac are frequently found in the Lancaster records, just not prior to 1740. Source:Jewett, Amos Everett. Early Settlers of Rowley, Massachusetts (1933) has the baptism listed, but no further information on Elizabeth.
