Re: Parents of George Durham

In Reply to: Parents of George Durham by Edward Miller of 3496

I have been working off and on for a number of years trying to find the immigrant ancestors of my Durham family. My descent from George Durham and Winifred Lindsey is fairly well agreed upon by those of us who claim descendancy from his son, James Lindsey Durham,Sr. 1758-1833. The best information I have comes from a Sharon Davenport. I cannot verify it, but it makes more sense than any other thing I have found. It gets cluttered up trying to post it in this message box, but if you will email me, I will attach it as a document from my Family Tree Maker file. I have not been able to contact Sharon since finding this post.

My research is a work in progress and is a combination of family history and information obtained from various sources including the internet. I realize there is a lot of wrong information on the web and am trying to backtrack to document as much as possible. I am very conscientious when using someone else's work to acknowlede that person. If you use any of my work I would appreciate the same curtesy. I gladly welcome any additions, corrections or questions.

I would like to dedicate this genealogical quest to Grace Ann Smalley Woodruff.
Without her many hours spent tromping through cemeteries & libraries, contacting
relatives and her dedication to accuracy I never would have started my search.
Unfortunately she died before I had a chance to meet her but her mother was kind
enough to let me copy all her records. That is what started my enthusiasm for genealogy
made me realize this record would be something of value to leave to my children.
