Notes of Susan Mortensen

Concerning William, Jr. This is what I believe: He was the William who married Jane Pigg. He isn't the

William and wife Jane who died in Pitts. Co. Jane doesn't seem to be related to the Pittsylvania Co.

Piggs - I don't know who her family is yet. Going over the few deed records I have - I believe he is the

William Burgess living in Fluvanna Co. through 1790. It shows him on the tax lists and the 1790 census

all next door to John Burgess. John's son William would be too young to be this William. William sells

land to John Hunt before 1794. In 1793 a William shows up on the Montgomery Co.,VA tax lists with

some of the other family. Edward's son William is too young to be this William. There is a William on the

tax lists for Montgomery co. until 1806 (2 Williams on this one). I don't know whether he died or moved

on after 1806 - if this is William, Jr. I don't know if he is the William on the Tazewell Co. records of 1794/

1795. I wish he had a less common name.

Fluvanna County, Virginia Book 1 1777-1783 Indenture 3 Sep 1778 William Burgess and Jane his wife

of Fluvana County sold to Pleasant Cocke of Goochland County, 195 acres lying on the Branches of

Do we have two different William Burgess men who married ladies named Jane?
