25 Edward Colbourne is recognized as the progenitor of the Coburn line in America, but the research in England failed to produce his line. In September 1635 the ship "Defence" arrived in Boston with 17 year old Edward Colbourne. He had 9 children with Hannah Rolfe. He was Nathaniel Saltonstall's farmer which indicated he was the manager of this prominent man's estate. Colbourne, Edward (I908)

29 I could not find Conrad's birthdate but it's stated that he was 10 years younger than Sophia. In the latter part of the 19th century, the Russian Army of Catherine the Great broke their promise to German immigrants and began to recruit them for the Russian Army. This is why Sophia and Conrad left for America, he was 18 and she was 28. The story goes that he was dressed as a girl and smuggled out of the country in order to avoid the Russian army. The records from the U.S. Federal Archives show them both as being 28 and they were listed as "farmer and wife". Evidently, they fibbed about their age and status to get on the ship. Beck, Conrad (I854)

40 Per and Nilla were a happy ambitious couple in Sweden. Nilla was considered a wise person. Per and Nilla were quite wealthy. They had many men working for them. These men assumed the last name Jeppeson or Jeppson which is the custom in Sweden. Therefore in looking up the name Jeppson, there will be those who are not actually related. Per and Nilla?s son, Jons, made a statement that there might be a way to distinguish between them. In Sweden children took their names as a "son" or "dotter" of their father. For example the son of Per would have a second name of Persson, or the daughter of Marten would be Martensdotter. As told by his granddaughter, Karin, Per had a long white beard that she would braid while sitting on his lap. He taught her to read and to sing a lot of songs, especially ?Work for the Night is Coming.? Nellie Pearson Ray, another granddaughter, used to sing the same song while working about the house and garden. Per died of a stroke or heart attack with a psalm book he was reading under his chin.  Family: Per Jeppson / Nilla Martensdotter (F343)

44 Robert Colburn changed his name from Colbourne. He was the 1st child of Edward and Hannah Colbourne. He had 11 children with Mary Bishop, which Edward was the first of. Colburn, Robert (I906)
45 Ruth Fuller was a fifth generation descendant of Edward Fuller of Norfolk, England. Edward had come on the "Mayflower" with his wife Ann, his son Samuel, and his brother Dr. Samuel Fuller. Edward was the 21st signer of the Compact, but he died along with his wife during the first winter of the great sickness at Plymouth in 1621. So this means Sibyl Robinson Coburn was a 7th generation descendant of one of the original pilgrmas who came to Plymouth, Mass. in 1620 on the "Mayflower". Fuller, Ruth (I898)
46 Samuel Coburn and Elizabeth Holt had 15 children Holt, Elizabeth (I900)
47 Several children last known around Huntingburg, IN Witte, Emil (I84)
48 Sophia Beck arrived in America with her brother Conrad on May 12, 1885. The fare from Russia to America was about $70 which was not much but the ships were probably not very comfortable. They arrived at Ellis Island and her name is forever engraved on the American Immigrant Wall of Honor. Sophia became the hired girl at the Dolan farm near Indianola, Nebraska where she met the hired hand, Otis B. Coburn. They were married a year and a half after she arrived in America.  Family: Otis Ben Coburn / Sophia Beck Coburn (F243)
49 Sophia Beck Coburn arrived in America on May 12, 1885 with her brother Conrad, sister Katherine and Katherine's husband Henrich (Henry) Harsch and son jacob. The trip took 24 days. There was one stop in Havre, France. They must have sailed from Hamburg through the English Channel to La Havre and then on to America. Little is known how they all got from Odessa to Hamburg but probably by barge and/or train. The fare from Russia to America was about $70 which was not much but the ships were probably not very comfortable. (This information about the fare was taken from a paper written by Leonard Harch's grandson, Lester Harsh. Leonard was Henry's brother who came to America a year before Henry). Sophia was 28 and Conrad was 18. Beck Coburn, Sophia (I845)
50 Sophia Beck Coburn died Sep 11, 1926 of "endo myocarditis". There was no mention of her asthma which she had. The one error on her death certificate is that Conrad was not her father's name. It was Jacob. She was 69 years old and buried in the cemetery north of Indianola, Nebraska. Beck Coburn, Sophia (I845)
