Looking for father and mother of Wilbur-1116 Hervey (Wilbur) Wilber (1811 - abt. 1888).  Wilbur-1117 Hervey Wilbur (1793 - 1827) seems like a good candidate for location, popular family name, etc.  I have researched from many angles but have not made the connection yet.  I may be missing something and am open to ideas, mentoring, or a skilled WikiTree angel pointing me to the solution.  I would like to be able to do it myself too but no obligation to teach me if you know the solution.  Thank you
