All I have on Burgess is born July 1844, married to Lydia A. born July 1842. They had 5 children 4 of whom were living in 1900. He did not live far from my g g grandfather Benjamin Geer according to the census they lived within a mile of each other. Have you been to the area of New Cumberland, or Chester W.V. I still go back to my g. granparents farm once a year. They have even named a road Geer Road. It was along White Oak Run that all the W.V. Geer originally settled. Its beautiful! If I find more about his brothers I'll let you know. I have a tape I recorded there with a room full of Geer family in 1981. There may be info on the tape. Thanks Susan
