Regarding William, Sr.'s wife Susanna. I still believe she was his 2nd wife. Note how Edward was

married in 1765 and Susanna (dau) marries in 1790. That is a 25 year span & daughters usually married

fairly young. Edward had to have been born about 1740-44. William, Sr. was probably born 1715-20. It's

all possible Susanna was his only wife & the daughters were all older when they married. Who is Watt

Johnson? He must be a son in law. He is named first in the will & the children seemed be named in

order - so did William have an older daughter that died before him. Maybe Watt is a grandson & already

of age.  Susanna Mortensen.

IT IS VERY INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT ON THE PRECEDING PAGES Thomas Jefferson

purchased 193 acres in Albemarle County on Hendersons Creek Nov court 1774

 

Was this William's Brother Thomas our Thomas was to young in 1773 to own land?  We believe that our

 

Thomas Burgess was born about 1755 in Albemarle County, Virginia or Bedford County, Virginia.

Was this Edward the son or Brother of our William Burgess Senior?

Notes on William Burgess and Susanna

 

For several years I have believed that William Burgess came from the James River Valley.    When at

the Library of Virginia I found hundreds of documents on men with the name William Burgess.  There

may be a clue for us in those records.  It would be a huge research project taking many hours.

 

In the fall of 2004 Michael Burgess started working on the Burgess DNA project.  To see the results of

his project please visit www.familytreedna.com <http://www.familytreedna.com>

 

The DNA of Jim Burgess was tested as being a representative sample of the William Burgess family of

Bedford County, Virginia.  (Will 1778)

 

The DNA of Michael Burgess was tested as being a representative sample of the William Burgess family

of Richmond County, Virginia.

 

Results through two samples of 25 sticks  are a 100% match.  To Jim Burgess this means  that his

father and mother are related through at least  10 to 15 generations.

 

For research purposes I believe that our family came to America through the Northern Neck of Virginia.

We have no documentation to prove this.

 

Michael Burgess wrote The House of Burgesses in 1994.  It is an excellent book.  The ancestry of Jim

Burgessf this James Burgess does not match the DNA of William Burgess of Bedford County, Virginia

even though both families lived in Bedford County at approximately the same time.  Further testing may

be done to disprove this theory.

NOTE:  I have been working on determining who Susanna might be for almost forty years.   I have no

idea what her maiden name was.   Many have speculated that her name was Garland since she named

a son Garland.   Who knows?   Here is the little information that I have found.

Notes of Susan Mortensen

Concerning William, Jr. This is what I believe: He was the William who married Jane Pigg. He isn't the

William and wife Jane who died in Pitts. Co. Jane doesn't seem to be related to the Pittsylvania Co.

Piggs - I don't know who her family is yet._Going over the few deed records I have - I believe he is the

William Burgess living in Fluvanna Co. through 1790. It shows him on the tax lists and the 1790 census

all next door to John Burgess. John's son William would be too young to be this William. William sells

land to John Hunt before 1794. In 1793 a William shows up on the Montgomery Co.,VA tax lists with

some of the other family. Edward's son William is too young to be this William. There is a William on the

tax lists for Montgomery co. until 1806 (2 Williams on this one). I don't know whether he died or moved

on after 1806 - if this is William, Jr. I don't know if he is the William on the Tazewell Co. records of 1794/

1795. I wish he had a less common name.

Fluvanna County, Virginia Book 1 1777-1783 Indenture 3 Sep 1778 William Burgess and Jane his wife

of Fluvana County sold to Pleasant Cocke of Goochland County, 195 acres lying on the Branches of

Byrd Creek as followeth near John Thurmond and Davis Corner to David Parish's to Thomas Kent's line.

 

Do we have two different William Burgess men who married ladies named Jane?

A William Burgess of Goochland County, Virginia made an application for a Revolutionary War Pension

15 Jun 1818.  He enlisted in Rockingham County, Virginia.  He was in the company of CCapt Bowyer in

1778 for eighteen months and in the regiment of Col William Davis and served until about 1780 when he

was discharged in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  On 17 July 1820 Goochland County, Virginia the said

William is age 79 making him born about 1741.  He is a weaver.  He has no family residing with him and

he owns no estate of any kind.  This information comes from Pension Application 37797.

 

Another William Burgess played a part in the formation of Logan County.  In the History of Logan County

by Henry Clay Ragland page 116 the following information appears:  "In 1820 William Burgess was

elected as one of the member of the General Assembly of Cabell County and commenced at once to

make a fight for a new county and once to make a fight for a new county.  He was re-elected in 1821-

1822 and in 1823 he had the proud satisfaction of seeing the act creating the act creating the new

county of Logan passed by the General Assembly."  Some people in Logan County believe this was

William Dingess and not William Burgess.

 

Note from Jim Burgess:  This was not the son of William Burgess son of Thomas Burgess, as that

William Burgess was born about 1814 and would have been too young to serve in 1821-1822.

 

On page 121 of the History of Logan County by Henry Clay Ragland we read the following sentence:.....

in October 1794 passing near the grave of Gilbert, and the surveying parting consisting of James Taylor

as surveyor, Zachariah Davis and James  Coply as Chairman and William Burgess as marker, coming

from Wythe County."

 

An interesting marriage took place in Giles County when David Burgess married Polly Davis 8 Oct 1821.

 

Is Polly related to Zachariah Davis?

slaves over the age of 16, the number of slaves under the age of 16, the number of horses, and the
