Hi everybody

I would like to welcome and introduce to you Peggy McGee Maness, email:
Pmmaness@aol.com. She is also descended from my ancestor Mathew Burt of
Virginia and Edgefield Co., SC through daughter Nancy who married William
Hall. Her husband Tom is similarly descended from Mathew, but doubly,
through his son Francis Burt and also through daughter Martha "Patsey"
Hewitt Burt who married John Wight. Peggy has already sent me two GEDCOM
files, on which I am still working.

Further, Peggy is also a cousin of Carolyn Putterman, recently added to
this group.

Welcome Peggy and Tom.

And add her email address to your list, please.

  Bill,

  I received the letter from C. W. Wallace a few days ago. I'm not clear
  as to what proof he has that William Burt ("Sr.") of Warren County came
  from Mecklenburg County. That information has indeed appeared in print -
  the source appears to be "Va. DAR Roster, p. 445" (if someone has access
  to that, please look to see if we can get further info).

  I'm having difficulty placing William Burt in Warren County before about
  1788 or so. One part of the problem revolves around a deed where Jonas
  Wilkins (of Halifax County) sells land to William Burt (of Warren
  County) - the conveyance is dated 1778 but was not recorded until 1792.
  I think it is possible that 1788 was the actual date of the transaction,
  not 1778.

  The possibility that William came from Mecklenburg County is intriguing,
  since Mathew and Moody Burt of your line were both in Mecklenburg
  County. You'd think that with William straddling the line between Warren
  and Halifax County that there surely was a connection with the Halifax
  County Burts, but maybe not. All the deeds that I can clearly identify
  as belonging to the Warren County William do not show the presence of
  any other Burts as witnesses (unlike many of the Halifax Co. Burts and
  their transactions).

  At any rate, I've pieced together what I could and it is now at
  http://www.tntech.edu/~beg/burt/william_warren.html - everyone please as
  always share additions or corrections. Ed Burt has been silent so far -
  isn't he collecting information on the Warren County Burts?

  Barbara

This sounds good to me.  I keep meaning to get to the Archives and haven't
gotten there yet.  Now that I'm finally here, there's tons of stuff I want to
research.  I don't have the hours handy, but I can check on them (unless
someone already knows them).  In addition to the research, I'd love to meet
(in person) more cousins.

Hi Sarah,

I visited the Alabama Archives yesterday and found some information on
Hiram Read, and later as I was going through some material (I'm still
trying to get organized, but it may be a losing battle! :-)) I found my
source of the above data. 

First, from the Archives, I found "Lee County and Her Forebears", edited by
Alexander Nunn, 1982:

p. 205 Hiram Read (1801-1882) m Elizabeth G. (1811-1899). Hiram was born
Halifax Co., NC; Elizabeth born Columbia, SC. They moved to Auburn in early
1800s. At one time operated Wright's Mill south of Auburn. Both buried
Auburn Cemetery. Son Dr. Andrew Hamil Read (1836-19110 m Betty Dowdell
(1845-19050. Served in Civil War; practiced medicine in LaFayette, moved to
Pilot Point, TX and returned to Opelika where he lived and practiced
medicine until his death. Their 8 children: George, Jim, Will, Render,
Andrew, Rosie, Susie, and Ella. Grandchildren's surnames Read, Chester,
Holmes, and Stowe. (Written by W. F. Chester).

David Thomason of Birmingham (who sent me the Daniel Grant Owen info) sent
copies of much of his Burt research. He above dates on Hiram and Maria are
from him. His notes, some obviously from the Nunn book) say that Margaret
Maria Burt, dau. of Joseph Burt of Halifax Co., NC (parents are in error).
They were married 19 Mar 1822. Margaret died 30 Jul 1830 after giving birth
to 4th child, Emily. She was only 24 yrs. old. Hiram then married Elizabeth
George Willis 10 Feb 1830. Hiram was a minister, physician, successful
attorney, Georgia legislator 1837-41. At one time operated Wright's Mill
south of Auburn. Trustee Jenkins Academy. Buried Pine Hill Cemetery,
Auburn. Information from Archives, Talbot, Harris and Muscogee Counties in
Georgia, also Lee County, AL court records. Information from book by Nunn,
Lee County and Her Forebears.

He also lists information from Mrs. Mary Summers of Opelika, AL. Family
Bible records of Read Family Birth, Marriage, Death Dates-- also parents of
Hiram Read, Asa Read and Maria Hulme, Jesse Read his father.  Hiram's
mother Maria Hulme died after giving birth to Hiram, 16 Apr 1801.  Military
record Macon Co., AL Home Guards 5 Oct 1863 muster roll Auburn, AL. John
Dorby's Macon Reserves. "Glimpes Into the Past from my Grandfather's Trunk"
by John Peavy Wright-- Hiram bought Wright Mill from A. M. Kimbrough and
wife Nancy for $3,000 attested by Nathaniel Hurt and W.E. Lloyd, both were
sons in law.

He lists children of MM and Hiram as:

Rebecca Ann Elizabeth Read
b 21 Sep 1823 Georgia
d 26 Nov 1826 Georgia

James Washington Read
b 8 Jun 1825 Georgia
d 4 Sep 1835 Georgia

Robert Hulme Read
b 15 Jun 1828 Georgia
d 18 Jun 1836 Georgia

Emily Fletcher Read
b 20 Jul 1830 Georgia
d 9 Jun 1891
m Nathaniel Hurt    )

Subj:	William Washington BURT


"Lee County and Her Forebears" edited by Alexander Nunn, 1983
p. 231 Early Settlers in Salem area

William W. Burt (1812-1878) m Jane E. Laseur (1815-1863). He was an
original land owner and settled in Salem, Russell Co. (now Lee Co.) in
1835. A prosperous farmer and very active in the community; gave land land
for the Methodist Church and Cemetery. Signed the deed in 1853 to the
railroad for right of way. A member of Salem Masonic Lodge. Bith buried in
Methodist Cemetery. Children: Mary, Emily, William and the noted teacher R.
E. L. Burt (Ed Burt). [I'd bet the family farm that R. E. L. stands for
Robert Edward Lee]

Concerning the above, I found in the Confederate Service Records microfilm:

W. W. Burt, Pvt., age 52, enlisted 13 Aug 1864 in David Read's Russell Co.
Reserves, Co. D Alabama 1st Class Militia. (Home Guard).

Barbara, have you or anyone else figured out who was the William Marshall
Burt who married Amanda D. Booth? He was born 25 Nov 1818, m. 26 Oct 1846
Troup Co., GA. He died 25 Jul 1875 and she died 3 Nov 1866. You mentioned
before that some time in the 1850s, they settled at Salem, Russell Co., AL
where William Washington Burt, a second cousin of their children was
already living.

Regards.
Cousin John

BURT Family Researchers,

I want to thank you and our other active BURT-READ-MATHEWS-COLEMAN
researchers/ cousins for their hard work to exchange their documented data. I
personally regret that I have never located any other group which has been
working as efficiently as you have,  to ensure that the BURT family data and
its sources were accurate and exchanged. If I had experienced this form of
group effort(s) for documentations, 5 - 10 years ago, I would have been
encouraged, and may  have continued to use and to advance with the earilier
E-mail systems. My own BURT - COLEMAN family notebooks and documents will be
reviewed again, and reorganized.  My future linited contribution(s) to these
exchanges of BURT and COLEMAN data will be closer to your excellent
standards.

I am glad to be included with your BURT researchers..

Robert.

  Robert,

  I hope you haven't been put off by our (my?) nit-pickiness... please
  continue to contribute and don't be afraid of questioning! I wish that
  someone had stressed careful documentation when I first got started. I'm
  still striving to be careful about it as well and having to redo years
  of work.

  One thing I would recommend to *every* genealogist is joining the
  National Genealogical Society. It probably won't help you (directly at
  least) find that elusive ancestor, but the journal you get contains
  excellent articles that emphasize correct research methodology and
  documentation, point out over-looked sources of information, and cover
  pitfalls to avoid. Some of the best articles are those where someone
  takes a "well-researched family genealogy" and shows how the genealogy is
  wrong due to unwarrented assumptions and inaccurate, unverifiable
  information, and then proceeds to construct the correct genealogy. It's
  eye-opening! (Their website is at http://www.genealogy.org/~ngs/).

  Regards,

  Barbara

Subj:	The Identity of William Burt Sr.?


  All -

  I've been thinking a little bit about William Burt Sr. who died in Halifax
  Co., NC in 1824, and four of whose daughters married sons of Joseph Burt. A
  number of folks have speculated that William Burt Sr. was a brother to
  Joseph Burt, and hence the marriages were between first cousins (not
  unheard of). One troubling aspect of this assigment is that of the six
  children of John and Grace Burt of Gloucester County named in the Abingdon
  Parish register, William does not appear. (Grace in fact dies in 1835; the
  marriage later that year of John Burt to Ann Howard is probably that of
  John Burt Jr. and at any rate the children of that marriage named up until
  1745 do not include William Burt).

  I'd like to propose the following: William Burt Sr. was the son of Richard
  Burt (Joseph Burt's brother) and Rebecca Stephens. Here are some "clues"
  that lead me to this tenative conclusion:

   - From the will of Richard Burt of Halifax County, NC, it appears that
     two children lived to adulthood: John Burt (b 1747 Gloucester Co., VA)
     and William Burt (birthdate not known, but probably about 1750).

   - Richard Burt's son William was living in Halifax County, NC at least 
     until 1793 (see deeds I sent). A William Burt first appears in the 
     Halifax County tax list in 1783 and William Burt Sr., definitely the 
     one who died in 1824 from family composition, is listed in 1786 along 
     with another, apparently more recently-married, William Burt.

  -  One of William Burt Sr's daughters was named Rebecca (?after her 
     mother Rebecca Stephens?).

  -  When Richard Burt died, he specified in his will that all his land 
     be divided in half, with John Burt getting everything south of the
     dividing line and William Burt getting everything north of that line. 
     William Burt Sr. owned quite a bit of land (much of which I cannot 
     account for through deed records, although my info is imcomplete), 
     some of it either identical or adjacent (I can't tell which) to the 
     land inherited by William Burt, son of Richard Burt. 

  The above does not constitute proof, but it does provide what seems to me
  to be a more  plausible explanation. If we could get some good maps of
  18th/19th century Halifax County showing the watercourses, I believe we
  could map land ownership and either construct a "prepondence of the
  evidence" argument for William Burt Sr.'s father being Richard or rule it
  out. Does anyone have access to such material? Or, do you see a problem
  with my suggested conclusion? If my guess is correct, this would make his
  daughters 1st cousins once-removed, rather than 1st cousins, of Joseph
  Burt's sons.

  Barbara

Subj:	Hello!!!


Hello.  I'm a member of the Central Texas Burt Clan and I may be able to
provide you with some information if you're interested.

My father's family has lived in Coryell County (Gatesville, etc.) for
many years and several of my cousins have moved away to Colorado and New
Mexico.  I have lived in Houston (with my parents) for about 24 years.

I'm very interesed in pursuing this family line with you.  You may
contact me by e-mail at cslab@introgen.com or by phone at (281)

Judy,

I can't answer your question yet, but I will check my records. There are a
lot of William Burts in that time period! Most are related to our John Burt
line or the Richard Burt line. I am involved in researching the Burt line
in VA, NC, SC, GA and AL with an outstanding group of people. I am
forwarding your note to the group in hopes that someone  may be able to
help you. In the meantime, I suggest you check our Burt webpage at
 

Regards,
John

Barbara, this looks good. It makes more sense that him being a brother of
Joseph given his date of death of 1824. Also, a probable marriage date of
about 1770 would mean his daughters most likely born 1770-1790 which would
make his daughters the right ages to marry sons of Joseph Burt.

Do we have any idea of the name of William, Sr.'s wife. Could one of

Subj:	HURT / BURT families


Everyone,

I'm writing because (1) at some point or another we corresponded about the
HURT family or (2) I saved a message you posted to the genealogy forum on
CompuServe about the HURT family -- figuring it might come in handy later.

I'm part of a small group of researchers trying to straighten-out the BURT
family of VA and of Halifax Co., NC > GA (and then points West).  Below are
HURT / BURT connections:

1.  Joel Hurt BURT, reported son of Zacheus BURT & Elizabeth BURT (Elizabeth
is reportedly Zacheus' first cousin, therefore BURT is her maiden name), b.
1807, Warren Co., GA, d. 1847, Talbot Co., GA.  Source:  _A Rockaway in
Talbot, Vol. 1_, William H. Davidson.  We have not determined if Joel Hurt
BURT was named after a relative or a friend and would welcome any help with
this.

2.  Elisha Fletcher HURT m. Amanda MARSHALL, 1842, Talbot Co., GA.  Amanda
MARSHALL was the granddau. of Stephen MARSHALL & Elizabeth BURT.  Source:  _A
Rockaway in Talbot, Vol. 2_, William H. Davidson.

And there is also the possibility of HURT and BURT being confused in the
records.

Allied families include MARSHALL, GIBSON, FLUELLEN, MATHEWS, possibly
TARPLEY, READ (REED), COLEMAN, OWEN.

If anyone is interested in joining our group, please write and let me know.
 Also, Barbara Goodson maintains wonderful Web pages on the Southern BURT
family:  www.tntech.edu/~beg/burt/ .

Thanks very much; am having much fun with your information.

My reference for Frances Hurt was "The Early Hurt Family in Virginia" by
Oscar H. Hurt, but I must recheck this.

As for Hurt-Burt, I have one family you may find interesting. Again from
"The Early Hurt Family in Virginia," a daughter of Joel Hurt and sister to
William Hurt was named Elizabeth Hurt b. abt 1763. She married William
Burt. I have nothing further.

Hello:
   I'm not interested in joining your Hurt/Burt family group because I'm
pretty
tied up in pursuing the McElvey/McElvy family history which is allied with
the
Hurt's. You might already have this information, but I'll send it anyway just
in
case you need it.
   The Elisha Fletcher Hurt you have who married Amanda Marshall was the son
of
Henry Hurt, born September 1, 1778. Henry married Emma Sledge on December 22,
1812. Emma Sledge was born June 4, 1797. This information is reportedly in
the
Hurt family bible whereabouts I don't know.  According to the "Atlanta
Historical Bulletin" Vol IXX, No. 37, April 1955, Henry Hurt, born 1774(date
differs from above), was the son of William Hurt and his first wife,
Priscilla
Yancey. This William Hurt was a soldier in the Revolution, in Virginia, and
died
in Hancock C. Ga., in 1812. 
   I do not know who the father of this William Hurt was, but feel sure that
they tie in to my Hurt line. 
   Some very good information on the Hurt lines was given to me by Rosamond
Abel
Crawley, 2406 Ridge Pointe Drive, Jonesboro, AR  72401, phone 501-972-6058.
Hope this will help someone.

  Wow, it's really tempting to suggest that this Elizabeth Hurt was the
  wife of William Burt Sr, since two of his daughters passed the Hurt name
  along to Joel Hurt Burt and Martha Hurt Burt. 1763 might make Elizabeth
  a bit too young - I guess the only birthdate we currently know for the
  children is that of Elizabeth Burt (1780), wife of Zacheus Burt. Sarah,
  I'm assuming that Joel Hurt above is the one in Halifax Co., NC?

  I have tenatively assigned Elizabeth Hurt as the wife of William Burt
  Sr. on his Web page; if anyone can add or subtract from this guess
  please do.

  On a related note, John Brown and Sarah Sharpless have expressed
  interest in a joint trip to the Georgia Archives. Anyone else
  interested?

I *think* that Joel is the one in Halifax, but I'll have to look into it.  I
just haven't done enough HURT research to know for sure.  As I understand --
simply from reading various undocumented e-mails -- there were several Joel
HURTs floating around at the same time (VA>NC>GA).  The most famous one was
instrumental in the development of Atlanta.

Also (and just throwing this out for whatever it's worth), I had an odd,
fleeting thought that many of you might have considered already -- what if
some of the wives of the BURT men were widows (first married to BURTs) and
not cousins, etc.  Need to re-look at sources, etc.  As I said, this was a
quick thought that just popped into my mind and I haven't given it any
serious consideration.

If Elizabeth HURT was b. in 1763, she would have been 17 at the time of
Elizabeth BURT's birth -- sounds sort-of normal for the time, but then a lot
of women in my families seem to have married between 14 - 18 years.

Still interested in the Atlanta trip -- not just for research, but also
because Mick's has great hamburgers and coconut cream pie.

When I was involved with the "Hurt" family, it was with one "Joel Hurt" who
married a "Tabitha Collins" , dtr of James Collins of Halifax/Pittsylvania
Counties. We worked thru that issue. Joel and Tabitha moved to Georgia taking
a

  I think Putnam County, Georgia deed book 26 p 160 rules that out: in it,
  Jesse Burt, Martha Burt, Zacheus Burt, Elizabeth Burt, James Burt,
  Rebecca Burt, Richard Burt, and Margaret Burt, all of Putnam County,
  Georgia, on 5 April 1824 granted power of attorney to James G. Burt in
  order that he could go to Halifax County and recover assets due them
  from "our father and father-in-law's estate, viz Wm. Burt Senr decd late
  of North Carolina, Halifax County." (The will of William Burt Sr. names
  among his children Martha, Elizabeth, Rebecca and Margaret Burt, but not
  any of the men above, who we know/believe were sons of Joseph Burt).

  Yes, but Elizabeth may not have been the oldest. If the naming order of
  children in William Burt Sr.'s will is indicative of birth order,
  William C. Burt and Rebecca Burt were born first. (Of course, besides
  the assumption they were arranged from oldest to youngest, there's
  always the possiblity that William Burt Sr. had two wives....).

  Sounds good! Unless I hear from anyone else, I'll contact you and John
  privately via e-mail so we can try to work out details.

Good morning,

A friend knows that I'm looking for Burt information forwarded me the following:

Ref. Source: "Colonial Records", Vol. VIII, 1769-1771, pp. 81-82 and
pp. 241-244, by Saunders; also: North Carolina History Told By
Contemporaries," pp.87-93, by Lefler; also: "The War of The Regulators
and The Battle of Alamance, May 16, 1771, by William S. Powell.

The below men signed a petition known today as the Regulators Petition
seeking redress for problems faced in their dealings with the King's
appointed representatives. Some of the surnames are similar to recent
queries seen on Roots-L and NC/SC-Roots listings. I hope this helps
some of you discover the residence of your ancestor.


It also contains a list of names and William Burt is one (about 150 names).
If you would like the post please let me know.

Barbara,

I was just looking at the Burt web pages -- you have done such a fantastic
job!  I was struck by one thing on the page for James Burt + Rebecca Burt.

You have:
==================================
It would appear from the above will that Rebecca had died and James had
remarried [10].

 10. Another researcher gives Rebecca as second wife, died ca 1805, and as
     first wife Mary B. Marshall, b ca 1773 in Halifax Co., NC, a daughter
     of David Marshall and Mary Davis. The source cited for this marriage
     was the will of David Marshall, 1785, Halifax Co. will book #3, p. 82
     and 152. This is in contradiction to Halifax County deed book 26, p.
     160, which shows Rebecca living in 1824; however, another source [2]
     gives the parents of Joseph Tarpley Burt, b 1812, as James (b 1786) and
     Mary ( b 1790) Burt. One possibility is that the marriage of James Burt
     and Polly Rogers in 1825 was that of James Burt after the death of
     Rebecca
=========================

I'm a descendant of David MARSHALL (thru son, Stephen, who m. Elizabeth Burt,
dau. of Joseph).  I have a copy of David's will (written 1 Nov. 1784) and he
simply lists all his daus. (9 of them) by their given names (including a
Mary) -- there is nothing in the will itself showing a marriage for any of
the daus.  A copy of the will is at the end of this message.  Now, I don't
have copies of any estate records -- and that might provide a clue for
marriages.  I got my copy of the will from the NC Archives.  Mitchell's
_North Carolina Wills_, gives the location as Halifax Co. WB 3, p. 82.
 Joseph Burt's will is on p. 152 -- but he certainly doesn't mention the
wives of any of his sons.

FYI and thanks again.

While reading the indexes in Chatham Co., NC, found some more BURT's.  This
is around 1760-1790.  There were John, James and William.  May have been
more.

Subj:	Some more thoughts on William Burt, and others, too


Hi every one

Have returned, and safely. Had a good trip. Visited with our daughter, one
of our grandsons and with Irelene's niece. Also visited with a long time
friend briefly.

Returned through Birmingham and met a perfectly delightful lady, Emmy Jane
Newman. She is a sister to Richard Griscom. We had a very productive visit
Tuesday afternoon at the church where she does some volunteer work at their
library. Then, Wednesday we went to the Birmingham Public Library; a very
productive outing too.

From all of the discussions, research and also coming home and checking out
so "county formation times" in Virginia, I did want to share some of these
with you. First, is that Lunenburg county, VA was formed in 1740. Then
Mecklenburg and Charlotte Counties, Va were formed, effective 1765, from
Lunenburg County. Thus, some one living in Lunenburg County before 1765
could, and without moving, then be found to be living in either Mecklenburg
or Charlotte county after 1765. My early indication is that to be in
Mecklenburg county after 1765 would require a move to be found later in
Charlotte county. This would probably be the situation of "my" Mathew Burt.

I bring up these dates so as to compare with the information I previously
posted of information received from Chuck Wallace, namely:

> His information is that William Burt who married Susan Sims is, in turn,
> the son of a William Burt born in Mecklenburg Co., VA in 1754.
> 

Mathew Burt was in Lunenburg County about 1760-1764. There was also a John
Burt there by about the same time. I gather that this must have been a
brother because I do not believe that John, son of Mathew, would have been
old enough by that time to be owning land. (The will of Richard Burt the
elder identifies Mathew and John as grandsons, but I can not place either
as sons of Josias or William, and, therefore, conclude they were brothers
and sons of Moody Burt.)

The will of Mathew Burt does not include a son named William. However, it
seems  possible that John Burt, whomever he might be, could well have had a
son named William. True, this does not tie to Mecklenburg County because
Mecklenburg was not formed at that time. In 1754, the area that was later
established as Mecklenburg was, in reality, Lunenburg County.

I have no clues as to where this John Burt moved or his family scattered to
after Lunenburg/Mecklenburg.

Then there is the William Burt of Greensville County who did have a son
named William.

So, we have at least one William Burt of Virginia that is unaccounted for
in later times as well as the possible parent for a child that could have
been born in Lunenburg/Mecklenburg County, VA.

Further too, I have a grandson of Richard the elder named Richard (he was a
son of Josias Burt) for whom I have no data after the will of Richard the
elder in 1745.

Consequently, and I am saying this with a grin on my face, if you have a
John or a William or a Richard for whom you lack any other connections, we
might try some of the above. Okay?

Kind regards to all.

Bill

Hi, everybody, again.

Two items to be added to my posting of this morning concerning some Burt
people of Virginia.

First, Elias Burt had a son William Burt, born  27 Mar 1736 in Isle of
Wight County, VA. Another source has it recorded that he moved to SC,
married an Anne Jones Friday 5 Mar 1775 in Charleston, SC and died in SC
about 1782.

Next, in the book "Revolutionary War Records, Mecklenburg County,
Virginia," compiled by Katherine B. Elliott, South Hill, Virginia, on page
200, she lists: "Some Mecklenburg People who went to other States,"  she
includes a William Burt who moved to Warren County, N.C. Unfortunately, she
lists no sources nor dates, as far as I could determine.

Just a sharing.

Subj:	Charity [Brinkley?] Hunt Odom


  All -

  Tonight I received Halifax County deed abstracts books by Stephen
  Bradley that I ordered. I'll be sending along information on some deeds
  that I missed. In the meantime, I need some help....

  As some of you know, my Burt connection is through Sarah Burt (dau. of
  Joseph Burt Jr.) who married Henry Hunt. I've had no luck tracing
  Henry's ancestry, knowing *only* that he was born in North Carlina in
  1802. Tonight I found the following deed in Bradley's book:

     Deed Book 21, p. 293  Josiah ODOM and his wife Charity (x) of Halifax 
     Co. to sd Charity's sons John HUNT and Henry HUNT. 24 Feb 1808. Deed 
     of gift and 5s. The property we now posess, namely 1 mare, 12 cattle,
     5 beds and furniture, and any other property we may have. Wit: Jaratt
     Vincent, John Vincent. Feb Ct 1809. 

  John Brown will recognize the name Jaratt Vincent, as he (or another
  one) was the brother-in-law of my Henry Hunt. Two questions:

     1. Was there a minimum age for a child to be a recipient of a deed of 
        gift? (If the above is my Henry Hunt, he would have been about 6 
        yrs old).
     2. Does anyone have anything on Josiah and Charity Odom? (Or Charity
        Hunt? Or Charity Brinkley?).

  The reason I ask about Charity Brinkley is that the will of William
  Brinkley who died in 1796 has a bequest to "Charity Hunt dau of Patty
  Gay ... the land in Franklin Co. formerly belonging to Henry Hunt dec'd
  her father..."  rest of estate to Charity's children: William Brinkley
  Hunt, Robert Hunt, Sarah Hunt and Polley Hunt, with one of the executors
  being John Mathews. (This is from an abstract, I believe by Margaret
  Hoffmann, who remarks "a very difficult will to read").

  In 1806 in Halifax Co., William Brinkley Hunt, Robert Brinkley Hunt,
  Sarah B[rinkley?] Hunt, and Polly Brinkley Hunt, through their guardian
  Joseph Gee, petitoned to divide the land they had inherited from William
  Brinkley. I doubt they all four had the same middle name; my guess is
  that they were the children from a first marriage, and that Charity
  re-married secondly to a Hunt. Whether this Charity Hunt is the one that
  re-married Josiah Odom I do not know, although I suspect it.

  Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

  Barbara

I am sure you are correct. After looking again and thinking about what I
mentioned, I now believe it was merely an index of those Virginia patriots
in a different form, manner.

She also had one of "my" Burt guys included that went to South Carolina.

I am so glad that the four of you are going to Atlanta and the archives.
Good luck. As if you didn't already have "enough on your plate," I have a
Moody Burt that was in Georgia, somewhere over around Augusta real early. I
am not sure where Moody, an older brother to Mathew might have been. He
_could_have_been_ in the Augusta area. He was mentioned in the will of
Mathew dated in 1794 as being deceased.

Then there was a son of Mathew, also named Moody (but spelled variously,
including  Mudy). I have some indications that he too was in that area
of Augusta. So, _IF_ you do happen to run across any one like that, I would
appreciate the little that you might find. And so I can easily separate
based on that date of 1794.

Incidentally, I am glad also that you are getting together 'cause that
might could be a forerunner to the idea I broached to you earlier of
getting together. I am a strong believer in sharing and hence I strongly
support our little e-mail group. But, also, I believe in face-to-face
sharing. I think you can get even more that way. I had a very good
experience with Emmy Jane. She had one idea that she had expressed in a
letter; I could not fully grasp it all until that face-to-face meeting. I
mentioned the possibility to Emmy Jane for such a meeting in Birmingham in
my "thank you" letter to her but have not had a response. My idea was to
see if we might meet at her church for talking, sharing and discussing and
then, if appropriate, go to the B'ham Public library, specifically their
Southern History Department, for whatever additional research we might feel
appropriate at that time. Comments?

Again, Barbara, thanks for all of your wonderful help and work to help us
in these endeavors. I wish I could join you people in Atlanta but our
summer reunions interfere. Give my regards to all and GOOD LUCK.

Barbara, I am sending this to you and not the whole group because I am more interested 
in the "Brinkleys" that you mentioned and I know this is mostly about the Burts.

I have a Sarah Brinkley in the line but I have her married to James Brinkley and have a 
couple of other people I am corresponding with who are working on getting the Brinkley 
info.  

Could you (when you have time), see what all info you have on any of the Brinkleys and 
either email or snail mail to me (660 Glenview Drive, Winter Garden, FL 34787).  We just 
might have a breakthrough with some of the info you put on the last message.

Hi, y'all

This message is in three parts, three disconnected parts, really.

First, in re: William Burt who, according to some accounts, was born in
Mecklenburg Co., VA c1754 and died in Warren County, NC 8 July 1823.
QUESTION: Has any one ordered any information from DAR about this person?
If not, I will try to do so, but saw no need for duplication.

Second, in regard to John Burt of Gloucester.
Yesterday, I found a Richard (1) Burt family history written by Thelma
Ironmonger Hansford, written ca 1957. On page 14 thereof, she includes this:
"6. John (2) Burt born before 1693 was probably a son of (sic) Philip (1)
Burt. He and his family lived in Abingdon Parish in Gloucester County,
Virginia. Because of the similarity of names and the proximity of the two
homesites, there seems little doubt that these are of the same family.
John (2) Burt married Grace _____ before 1714. Their children were: . . . "

Two comments and two questions. First, I am sure that on the first line of
the above quotation, she is really referring to Richard (1) Burt, not
Philip (1) Burt. In the earlier portions of her manuscript, she has
referred only to a Richard (1) Burt. I believe the entry to be just a
momentary memory lapse as she was typing and a failure to catch it in her
proofing.

Secondly, I have extracted court records, dated in 1692 in York County, VA
involving Richard Burt and his wife Elizabeth Hansford Burt. I have also
extracted court records that clearly state that Richard Burt the elder and
his wife Elizabeth Hansford Burt had only one child, at least to adulthood,
and that he was Richard Burt the younger. We have no proof whatsoever as to
when Elizabeth Hansford Burt died, or what might have happened to her
marriage to Richard the elder. (The court records do present some basis for
such a comment.) Yet, we do know that Richard Burt the elder had other
children besides Richard the younger. We also know that the will of Richard
the elder was written 21 Feb 1744/5 and that no son by the name of John was
included therein. Hence, it seems very clear that for John to be a son of
Richard the elder, he most assuredly was born after 1692 (and probably
after 1693) and would have been deceased before Feb 1744/5.

Also, the grandchildren listed by Richard in his will do not include a
Joseph nor a Nathaniel and only one Richard Burt, a son of Josias. I just
tend to believe that Richard the elder would not have omitted a living
grandchild from his will, particularly not one named Richard.

QUESTIONS:
1. Do we have any clear indication as to when John Burt who removed from
Gloucester County to NC might have died? If he died after Feb 1744/5, we
would have further strong evidence that he was NOT the son of Richard the
elder.
2. Discounting the difficulties about all of this possible relationship
that I  mentioned above, does this possibility seem any where near being
feasible?

Now the last area.

Richard the elder had a son named William. This is the one that I am fairly
certain died in Greensville County, VA in 1782/4. This William had a son
named Harwood. I have further evidence that this Harwood Burt remained in
York County and died there in, as I can best recollect right now, in the
1790s. There were also some other descendants named harwood as well.

In the write-up as posted on the web page, we have this about Grace, the
wife of John of Gloucester County:
"Maiden name of Grace unknown at this time. The register of Abingdon
Parish, Gloucester Co., VA, where the births of many of John and Grace's
children were 
recorded, lists the baptism on 8 October 1699 of Grace Hayward [Howard?], the 
daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Hayward [Howard?]. While this is the right 
time frame for her birth, we have no more information on Grace Hayward."

Two questions:
Could Grace's maiden name have possibly been Harwood?
Could also William have married a Harwood lady, hence naming his son with
that name? Or is Harwood a corruption of the name Hayward or Howard, and so
maybe William might have married some one related to Grace?

Just some more musings for us to "chew over."

Personally, I am NOT a proponent that John was the son of Richard the elder
but I did find it in print and wanted to share.

Kind regards to all.

Subj:	A Couple of William Burt Sr. Deeds


  Here are a couple of deeds from "The Deeds of Halifax County, North
  Carolina 1817-1820" abstracted by Dr. Stephen E. Bradley Jr., 1996:

  Book 25, p. 170
  William Burt Sr. of Halifax Co to his daughter Sally Nevill of same. 12
  Oct 1819. Deed of gift and 5 shillings. Negroes Rindy daughter of
  Nannie, Matily daughter of Patty, and Jordan son of Nelly. Wit: Jesse
  Dupree. Proved 10 Dec 1819 before J. J. Daniel JSL.

  Book 25, p. 170
  William Burt Sr. of Halifax Co to his daughter Nancey Kimball of Warren
  Co. 12 Oct 1819. Deed of gift and 5 shillings. Negroes Aggy daughter of
  Nelly, Cisaa..ry daughter of sd Nelly, Perciller daughter of Patty. Wit:
  Jesse Dupree. Proved 10 Dec 1819 before J. J. Daniel JSC.

  The first deed is of particular interest in that it gives the name of
  the daughter named in his will as the wife of Osmond J. Neville. I had
  thought that perhaps she was named Maria, based on the 1809 will of 
  Mary Davis, widow of Goodrum Davis, which named her nephew William L. 
  Burt son of William Burt, niece Maria Burt daughter of William Burt and
  niece Martha Burt daughter of William Burt. Looks like she wasn't
  talking about William Burt Sr. (his son was William C. Burt, not William
  L. Burt, anyway). [Has anyone *proof* that William Burt, son of Joseph
  Burt Sr., married Martha Elizabeth Davis?]

Subj:	Marshall Burt


  Just when I start to get complacent, thinking we are starting to get
  some of the Burts sorted out, a new one comes along:

  From "The Deeds of Halifax County, North Carolina 1786-1796" by Stephen
  Bradley:
  Deed Book 17, p. 656
  Henry Irby of Halifax Co. to Marshall Burt of same. 27 Feb 1794. 68
  pounds 17 shillings 4 pence. A mortgage for 1 horse, furniture, kitchen
  utensils, livestock, tobacco. Henry Irby. Wit: Jesse Burt. May Ct 1794.
  CC: L. Long

  From "Halifax County North Carolina Court Minutes Volume II 1796-1797"
  by Stephen Bradley:
  August Court 1796
  Marshall J. Burt vs Ludson Worsham: Henry Hyde who is Special bail in
  this suit came in Open Court and surrendered Ludson Worsham principal in
  discharge of himself who was ordered into Custody accordingly.

  Has anyone seen a Marshall Burt during this time period before? This in
  intriguing, suggesting an earlier Burt-Marshall connection than those
  we've yet found. 

  (By way of warning, however, Stephen Bradley states that the handwriting
  of the court minutes was very difficult to decipher, and when I copied
  down the Burt entries in the index to deeds on microfilm I didn't find
  Marshall Burt listed. But I could have made a mistake. I did look
  through the indexes of Bradley's abstracts looking for Marshall
  Butt/Butts/Bird/Hurt/etc. and didn't see one, so the above name may be
  correct. It would be good to look at the actual deed and minutes.)

Hi everyone, 

  I have requested our library  to ask for library loan of Mrs. Thalma
Ironmonger Hansford's history of Richard (1) BURT.of York and Gloucester
Counties, VA. I will let you know if I am able to locate any facts to help
with these BURT questions from this book or the York County, VA records.
[1634 - 1642  Charles River County;  1634  name changed to York County; 1651-
York Co. divided, land north of York River was designated as Gloucester Co.

   On May 18, I attended the morning Episcopal service at the Abingdon
Church, Gloucester County, VA.  I  was very glad to observe how well these
many generations/ members have maintained this beautiful brick church, which
was rebuilt in 1755. I plan to return to their church office to review any
available records and grave plat/  registers which may be on file there.

  One difficulty in general is that we do *not* know if the John Burt who
  came from Gloucester County was John Burt, the widower of Grace, or his
  son John Burt. As far as I know, the last thing we are certain about
  John Burt Sr. is that he was alive in 1834, since his son Nathaniel was
  born then. Perhaps someone can correct me if I'm mistaken.

  The flip reply would be "sure, Grace's name could possibly have been
  *anything* since we don't know *what* it was..." At any rate, I don't
  believe we've encountered the name Howard or Harwood carried down in the
  descendants of John and Grace Burt so I'm inclined to think it unlikely.

  For whatever it's worth....

John,

I am glad that you, and perhaps other cousins, have also visited that
beautiful 1755 brick 'Abingdon Church' in Gloucester County, VA.  I will let
everyone know if there are any records available at the parish office,
expecially any grave plat/ registers.

If I can locate a copy of the "Abingdon Parish Records" book, I also chech
for the publishers. 

Sorry to read that you were within 17 miles of our home. Hope you will accept

Hi Gerry,

I have quite a few Mary Burts in my database, but none born 1795. Being
from NC and living in Putnam Co., GA she is probably a granddaughter of
Joseph and Elizabeth Burt.
I am passing this note along to some friends. Possibly one of them can
identify her.

Check out the Burt webpage 

Will keep checking.

Dear Sarah,

I have about all the records from Halifax Co. NC, because the Kimbell boys
that stayed in NC went there from Warren Co. abt. 1811.  Well, unless I am

Burt and I may have that doc. also and Wm. There is also doc giving power of

Nancy Kimball or Kimbell b. 1787 with Sarah b. 1824, Edwin b. 1829, and Eliza

As best as I can calculate, James, son of James s/o Ben, Sr was b. 1779 and
was deceased before 1850 date of the census listing Nancy and these 3
children who were adults in 1850, but living with Nancy.  The last two same

Sarah, this is proof Nancey Kimbell is dtr. of William Burt, Sen.
Next, I'll find the doc that she was James Kimbell's wife and they have son
James named in next doc, too.
I think I have marriage record also.  I'll send these when I find them.
 Should fill in one little hole . Every little bit helps, I guess.  Ruth

Dear Sarah,

Found it pretty fast.  They are in my huge box of deeds, etc. from Halifax
records.  I also have the tax or census, don't know which for Nancy in Morgan
Co. AL.  Think I can get it on this session.  Then, I'll look for the
marriage record.  Here is proof of James husband of Nancy Burt and son, James
T. Kimball:

Know all men by these presents that I, James Kimball of Morgan County and
State of Alabama have authorized, nominated and appointed and do by these
presents authorize nominate and appoint James T. Kimball, Jr.  as my true and
lawfull attorney for me and in my name to ask demand and receive from the
Executors of William Burt, Sen. dec'd of Halifax County and State of North
Carolina two certain negro boys willed to my wife Nancy Kimball and also any
money which may be coming to me from the Exec. of the aforesaid estate and
receipt to the said Exers. for the same and also to give an indemnifying bond
to the Exers aforesaid if required and do all and singular the business above
named as fully as I might or could do were I personally present at  ?  and I
do further authorize and empower the aforesaid James T. Kimball my attorney
to sell the aforesaid negro boys at his discretion and to assign a bill of
sale for the same in my name and I do by these presents ratify and  confirm
whatever the said James T. Kimball my attorney may lawfully do in relation to
the business above named James Kimball.
Signed and sealed in presence of W.B. McClellan

(the bottom was not clear and I believe the date is not on the part I have.
 Might want to get from Halifax complete copy.  I thought it did name James T
as James son.  Just said James T. Kimball, Jr.  The deed just above this doc
is dated 3 June 1825, so guess William Burt , Sr. died after 1819 and June
1825.  Now James says he lived in Morgan Co. AL.   Here's list for Nancy
Kimball from Morgan Co. AL:

In Morgan Co. AL 1850 
Edmund Kimbell 1777 NC
William b. 1821 AL
Perlemina 1817 AL
Martha 1825 AL              This is James's bro.  who m. Eliz Tunstall.  I
have date in
                                                                    my
records.  May be children or could be grands.  Eliz. must be dec'd.

Morgan Co. 
Nancy Kimbell b. 1787 NC
Sarah 1824 AL
Edwin 1829 AL
Eliza R. 1829
This appears to be James's Widow and children or grands.  I'd guess her own.
 James must be dec'd .Nathan was around in the same area, but not on this
list.  You might find James settlement before 1850 in Morgan Co. but appears
to have lived in Morgan Co. at least 25 years.  Nancy may have settlement
records there, too if anyone looks at them, ask them to send results.  I
don't have fam. group sheet on James and Nancy that is complete.

Next, I'll check NC marriages probably before 1810 for Nancy and James
Kimbell.  He lived in Warren Co. because that is where his father James and
Frankie lived and James's father I am sure gave James land there.  Ben, Sr.
was James father.  James who m. Nancy was 2nd son of James.   Talking double
talk here!  Marriages coming up  (if I can find it)  Ruth

Everyone,

We have a new BURT researcher -- Donna Warner.  Please add her e-mail address
to your list:

dwarnerla@aol.com

(The address is actually DWarnerLA on AOL, but if you make it all lower case
and add the "@aol.com" it'll go through fine -- or it should.)

Sarah (?)
Found your name on the Roots surname index and deceided to take a chance...

Am researching the BURT family in similar geographical and time frame as
list.

Specifically:
William BURT, residing at one time in Edgecomb County, NC, Wake County, NC
and later Franklin Co., TN, where he died around 1848 (I have copy of will)
Also, his wife, a Susan BURT (maiden name not given), from Granville Co., NC.
There are a number of other Burts listed in the marriage records of Wake Co.,
NC. A son, William Henry Burt m. Mary W. Adams 8 Jan. 1852.

Any of this familiar to you? I would be happy to share whatever information I
have with you. The family owned considerable property and, yes, slaves, at
that time. William Burt of the will lists a number of personal items to be
divided amongst14 children.

Hope to hear from you.

Dear Sarah,

How nice to hear from you -- and in such a timely fashion! I'd love to be
included on the BURT e-mail list.

I have information on several generations of BURTs, particularly Williams and
William Henrys,  from the Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia areas. I'd
be happy to send a GEDCOM file to Barbara Goodson or anyone else. Also, I've
transcribed a copy of the Will in my possession and can send it to anyone
interested, just let me know what file format (I work cross-platform, Macs
and PCs).

Do you know if anyone is working on this FROM the North Carolina area? In
other words, are they available to look up apecific information...

Thanks again for the quick response. Lookinf forward to your next
communication.
