States: Georgia: Elbert
I am a descendant of Archibald Burden, through his son James Burden who married Philadelphia Taylor. James moved to Tennessee about 1806, enlisted in War of 1812 and fought in Battle of New Orleans. He returned to Tennessee to find his wife, Philadelphia, had died about 1813. Their daughter, Philadelphia Taylor Burden born 1813, is my ancestor. James then returned to Elbert County where he married 2nd Elizabeth Bailey in 1816.
My belief is that James and Philadelphia are the parents of your Frances. James moved to Alabama by 1840, after Frances had married. The other sons of Archibald Burden had estates that were settled in Elbert County, and none of these sons mention daughter Frances or her husband Thomas Mewbourne. Also in 1860 census, Frances states she was born in Tennessee, although in 1850 and 1870 she is listed as born in Georgia.
