About Meshach Wilbor, Sr.

MESHACH WILBOR, sen., second son of Shadrach Wilbor, jun., of Raynham, settled in Raynham, probably on his father’s homestead; where he lived till his decease.

He had six Sons; viz., Meshach, jun., Lemuel, Josiah, Simeon, Ephraim, and George.

In Raynham-Centre cemetery is a stone with the following memorial: “In memory of Mrs. Elizabeth, Wife of Mr. Meshach Wilbore, died Nov 30th. A.D. 1776, in ye 70th year of her age.”

On the footstone: “Mrs. Elizabeth Wilbore, 1776.”

This is, undoubtedly, the wife of the above Meshach Wilbor, sen. By the side of this grave is another, the stones on which are so dilapidated that no inscription can be discovered. It is, no doubt, the grave of her husband.

Up to this point, the evidence of the lineal descent of the above Meshach Wilbor from Samuel Wildbore, sen., of Boston, is documentary, — by wills, conveyances of lands, and other records. Authority subsequent to this is from the sons of Lemuel Wilbur, second son of Meshach, sen., and their descendants.
