Burris ancestors
Posted by: Peggy Holt (ID *****5877) Date: November 22, 2009 at 21:06:53

The Burris line I am researching traveled back and forth between (Dobson) Surry County, NC and (Elk Creek) Grayson County, VA. I'm looking for marriage info and parentage to break down my brick wall.

William and Phoebe Jane Burris were both born in North Carolina. William was born 5 Oct 1827 and Phoebe Jane was born 23 Jun 1842. They had 8 children Minnie, George Martin, Charles, Jonathan Welvern, William Thomas, Columbus Thornton, Mary A (born NC) and John Guy. All but one were born in Grayson County, Virginia.

Their census information indicates that both their parents were born in North Carolina.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
