Richard Burdine's deposition in William Carpenter estate, ca 1745, in which his age as given as "age 50 or upwards" (notes #1058 and 1059)

1) REGINALD (RICHARD), born prior to 1740 in Orange Co., VA, died in October 1787 in Abbeville County, South Carolina. M.
1ST ANNE SAMPSON Notes from Carol Ann Burdine ( The will of John Sampson dated 18 June 1778, proved 20 July 1778 (fromDorothy  Wolfeck's abstract of Will Books B & C), names 9 daughters and 3 sons,  including daughter Ann Burdyne. Executors were wife Mary, (son-in-law) Reuben  Clark, (son-in-law) Reginald Burdine and (son-in-law) Henry Lewis. Witnesses   were George Wetherall, Michael Yeager and Joseph Campbell. Also names   sons-in-law John Hughs and William Hughes.
Anne Sampson Burdine died between 15 March 1779 and 16 October 1780. On the  former date, Reginald and wife Anne deeded 210 acres of land to William  Champe in Culpeper County (Culpeper Co., VA DB J:233). On 16 October 1780, Reginald and wife Dorothy, of Culpeper, deeded 133 acres of land to John  Bohannon, Jacob Aylor witness (Culpeper DB N: 27). Thus, Reginald's first  wife Anne died ca. 1799 and he married (2) Dorothy Tanner ca 1780. Dorothy  Tanner was born 1754 Culpeper County, Virginia, and died after 1817 Pendelton)
2ND DORTHY TANNER. (District, South Carolina. (see also Culpeper County, Virginia  Deed Book  N;  page 27; 16OCT1784). [There is little doubt that Dorothy Tanner married  Reginald Burdyne as his second wife is due to the record at Hebron Church of Veronica,  b. 15 December 1782, daughter of Richard Burdyne and Dorothy his wife. "Richard"  in the Hebron record is a mistake for "Reginald".... page 97 of The Germanna  Record, Number 12, 1970... article continues to say that Dorothy was still  living in 1817, as shown by the chancery suit in that year, though her  husband was dead as he is not mentioned as are the husbands of Dorothy's two  sisters]. )
Reginald's widow, Dorothy, was found in 1790 Census, Pendleton County,  South Carolina; also 3 females, presumably her daughters. (Possibly: Nancy,
Mary and Veronica). Dorothy has been found in an 1800 Census in Pendleton  County, South Carolina.
It appears that after his death his children moved to Georgia with a few  going on to Alabama sometime later.

I am really uncertain on that.  If anyone can help let us know.
The general consensus in John Blankenbakers articles and in information I have
read on Burdines from that information, is that it is recorded incorrectly. And
Information in the Tanner line indicates that Dorothy was married to Reginald.

     A.  RICHARD (REGINALD,RICHARD) M. SARAH WALLING  (Richard3 Burdine was born ca.1760 Madison County, Virginia. Richard  received a U.S. Land grant 2 February 1818; Certificate No. 799; Tract Book  page 56; Frac West of Bdry Section 24 Township 5, Range 1 West containing 186.37  acres; Madison County, Alabama. He married  Sarah Walling 28 February 1820 in  Alabama [Madison County, Alabama Marriages Book 3; page 36], her father was  possibly William Walling, Sr.  Richard and Sarah had a son JOHN GEORGE J.  BURDINE who was born prior to Richard's death in 1826. In Richard's Will  dated  11 February 1826  John George is mentioned as infant son only living son of Richard and is left  in the care of Reuben SHOTWELL as guardian with property and provisions for  his  care until he reaches the age of 21 years.ie. He was to rent Richard's land  and slaves and the money was to go to the estate and care of John George. On  18 February 1826, Richard adds to the will that if John George should die  before age 21 then the sum be divided to his brothers and sisters and being  concerned  for the welfare of his brother Jeremiah makes provisions for him. JOHN GEORGE
J. BURDINE died June 1834. Richard's Will is then in Probate Court 14 January  1835,for division of property left to son John George. Each brother and
sister  received one thousand four hundred and eighty six dollars, while Jeremiah was  to receive one thousand nine hundred eithty one dollars and thirty four  cents, a house and property as he was unable to support himself. In the Codicle of  this Will, his brother, Jeremiah, is mentioned  as  being old and infirm and  it  says that brother John had been dead 20 years and Henry, also his brother,  deceased in Jones County, Georgia.  Since John and Henry had died the sum was  divided among their children listed. Henry is mentioned as heir in original  Will of 1826. The Probate of 1835 mentions Henry's children and their spouses  and his widow Nancy. [Wills: Pr 16 page 314; Probate Record 3 page 362; also  see Probate Record Bk. 7 page 50].)

Reginald's name is spelled 'Richard' in the Hebron Church records in connection to Dorothy(Dorthea)Tanner and their daughter Veronica. This led to the confussion that Reginald's son Richard was married to Dorothy and that Veronica was his daughter. But Richard, Reginald's son, was married to Sarah Walling in 1820 in Georgia. He died 1826. It was from his, Richard's son of Reginald, Will that we found the rest of the names of Reginald's children and the names of his son Henry's children. Their, Richard and Sarah's, only child died in 1834. Which prompted the Will to be probated and thus from that we learned that Henry had died and also possibly Albert. Which I just mentioned in the last e-mail.
In the Culpeper Classes, Reginald, is listed as 'Original'. Other records we find his name spelled 'Riginal'. It was a difficult name evidently.
And there is Albert H. Burdine also son of Henry, but not knowing his date of birth and the order he was listed in the Will of Richard and Jeremiah, I would "assume" he would also be too young to be John O's father. All we know on him is that he is mentioned in the 1826 Will of Richard, son of Reginald, and then in the probate of that same will in 1835, but is not mentioned. And he was in the 1832 land lottery of Georgia. Not finding him after that or mentioned in his Uncles probated Will again I "assume" he died. Maybe he just moved away??
I searched for information on John M. Burdine son of Henry, son of Reginald, son of Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdyne, with hopes that he was John O's father, but as I said earlier he would have only been around 6 years old when John O. was born, so he is eliminated.  I know your mom was searching Henry's and John's and at one time thought maybe he was John Fletcher Burdines son. The two unknow
sons of William Burdine son of Henry, son of Reginald could be something to look into as well. They would have been born 1824 maybe if that one Census was right and 1826/7. We just need to find names for them. His son William Bell Burdine wasn't born until 1835. The 1830 Census showed a son 5-10 and one under 5, but William and France were not married until 1826 and with his age being between
17/19 I seriously doubt he was married before Frances Jones.

B.  JOHN, M.(REGINALD,RICHARD) 1ST JEMINA CLARK, 2ND MARGARET. (John3 Burdine was born 1762 in Madison County, Virginia. He died in 1816  in Wilkes County, Georgia. [a print out of Burdines from LDS, has Dorothy as  his mother. However, Anne did not die until 1779 and Reginald did not marry
Dorothy until 1780, therefore with John born 1762 then Anne had to be his  mother].
John3 married (1) Jemima3 CLARK 6 March 1788, who was the daughter of Reuben2  (William1) Clark and Bathsheba Sampson Clark-a sister to Anne Sampson. Jemima  Clark was born in 1771 in Lousia County, Virginia [this date and place is  from Claudia Benson]. John married (2) Margaret UNKNOWN. [After John's  death  Margaret married  JOHN D. STROUD and  then RUBEN SCOTT, Margaret died before  final settlement of John's will 1835-36  her husband Stroud collected a  portion of her inheritance and paid monies and debts. He died, 1822-1823, Reuben Scott  collected final portion in final settlement John Scott died and his wife  Elizabeth Scott and John Gresham (by this time this must be JR.?) collected  final balance of estate due to Margaret in John's will].
Will of John: To wife Margaret for life, land, stocks, etc.  final division   among all children. To son Reuben certain slaves. To son Clark  when he comes
of age, certain slaves and $500.00 to complete his education. To four younger  children, Sophia, Julia, Matilda and  George certain  slaves as they  come of
> age.

Probated  4MAR1816.[Will Book 1818-1819 EARLY RECORDS OF GEORGIA, WILKES COUNTY, page  24].)
Reuben4 Burdine was born in 1789/90 Madison County, Virginia and died  ca. 1860's possibly from the rough times of the Civil War. It is believed he was  buried in the Old Hamilton Cemetery in Cabool, Missouri. There are numerous  graves that are unmarked. He  married  Mary Elizabeth 'UNKNOWN' 1816 in South  Carolina. Her maiden name was possibly Horton. It has been tied to her either  as maiden name or first husband. Mary Elizabeth died after 1880 as she was  living with her daughter and son-in-law James and Rachael Caroline Farris in
the 1880 census. Children:
........(a) Rachel Caroline, b. 22Jul1818.
........(b) Elizabeth b.1820 both born in South Carolina.
Reuben later moved to Missouri.
Rachel Caroline married James FARRIS, son of John & Mary  Freeman Farris,  Concord Township in Washington County, Missouri in 1835.  Their children:
.............(i) Eliza Jane Farris;
.............(ii) Mary Elizabeth Farris;
.............(iii) John Ruben Farris;
.............(iv) William Porter Farris who married  Margaret Jane Massey 1869, their son James Edward Farris married Drucilla P. Bradshaw.
.............(v) Frances Evaline Farris;
.............(vi) Drucilla  Catherine Farris;
.............(vii) Thomas M. Farris
.............(viii) Washington Farris.
In the late 1830's Reuben and Elizabeth moved to Pulaski County, and in the  early 1840's they joined their son-in-law in settling the beautiful, upper Piney River Valley. A large township in South-Central Texas  County, Missouri  was named in honor of Reuben Burdine. Cabool is now it's principal town.  Census takers and others had problems with spelling, consequently both his  given name, surnames and the township name were often  spelled phonetically  with numerous variations.
Clark4 Burdine was born around 1799.[possibly cause of death of  Jemima]  He was a Cadet at West Point,1819: The Original papers are at Wilkes County,  Georgia. Clark chooses Shaler Hillyer guardian, 1811-1817 page 157; {I am  curious as to why Clark would need a guardian if the 1791 birth year for  him  as per web information is correct, he would not me a minor. Does anyone know?
Carol Ann Burdine
If the possible year is 1799, then the guardian would be necessary.}  Clark Burdine married Sarah4 W. Clark, daughter of Reubin3 Clark (William2,  William1) and Martha3 E. Clark (Joseph2 & Ann Haynes, William1 & (2wife)  Martha Foster) in Madison County, Virginia; bond dated 7 February 1825,  returned by Oliver Welch, minister, 25 January 1825 (sic). Clark and Sarah both had died by 1845 and their daughter was left in the care  of grandmother Martha E. Clark.
 ........(a) Mary Laura Elizabeth Burdine married  James G. Noel in Madison  County, Virginia, bond dated 18 April 1849.
           3) SOPHIA; (REGINALD,RICHARD, JOHN M.) (Sophia Burdine. A Will names Thomas Danforth as
                   her husband, pos. after  Matilda died.)
           4) JULIA; (REGINALD,RICHARD, JOHN M.) (Julia Burdine married A.G. Noel)
(Matilda Burdine married Thomas B. Danforth  [see pages 145,424 & 418  of Vol II, 1819-1826  EARLY RECORDS OF GEORGIA, WILKES COUNTY. He was made  guardian for George M., Sophia, Julia and Matilda. Matilda d. 1819-1825]. )
(George M.  [chooses Thomas Danforth as guardian, page 121. A few  years later, 1824-1827 Minutes of Inferior court, EARLY RECORDS OF GEORGIA,  WILKES COUNTY,  page 66, George chooses Simpco A.G. Noel, guardian].)

I have a George M. Burdine son of John, son of Reginald, son of Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdyne, in Georgia as a minor when his father died. Nothing else on him. Also found a George W. Burdine of that same time period in Georgia, uncertain as to if it's the same person and the inital was mistaken as an M. for a W. or vice versa? Or if it's two seperate people. No more information on either. He might be of the right time to be John's parent.

Jeremiah3 Burdine was born before 1774. His Will was written 2 Oct 1841.  His Will is probated 10 January 1853. And Recorded 4 July 1853 (P.C. Minute  Book, No.2, page 27 Madison County, Alabama). [His wife's name may have been  Nancy-not mentioned in Will]  [*Note: Jeremiah may have had three older  children (a son and two daughters), (OR they could have  been  his younger brother and  sisters since  Reginald had died 1787): A  U.S. Census 1800, Laurens County,  South Carolina: page 619: Jeremiah Burdine:1(-10):1(26-45):Females 1(-10):
1(10-16): 1(26-45). Which would be before these births below. Possibly Mary,  Nancy and Henry, and or Dorothy and Veronica. We had assumed that Dorothy and  Veronica had died around 1790. New info says Dorothy was in 1800 and 1810  Census  and in chancery suit in 1817. No other info on Veronica is found].

Other legalities added to Richard's will by Mary ask that Seth not  be given any of the property to which she may be entitled.  Apparently he was  given to heavy drinking and had run through all the assets they had together.  He left her destitute with several children in 1823, but would occasionally  return. He continued in his  dissipation until his mind became inpaired. Then  4  years before this time, Seth totally abandoned her and never returned, at least not at that point. Mary was afraid if he got his hands on this inheritance she would be left with nothing once again in a very short time. It also says she had already filed for a divorce in Cocke County, East Tennessee as desertion and abandonment of the wife by the husband for 3 years was good grounds.

Letter from John Sevier Waddill  (as it is spelled)

Springfield, Missouri
January 13, 1873

         At your request I will give you as much information as to our forefathers as I have--which will be very imperfect as nearly all I know
about our relatives of the past age is from my Mother who has long since died, and all I have is  from memory, having no record whatever.  My Mother's death took place in March 1836.  My Father, Seth Quee Waddill, was born in Pennsylvania, on the 18th.  day  of March 1767.  His father, John Waddill, was born near Londonderry, Ireland, came to Philadelphia, Pa., and married Miss Rachel Quee, in 1761. I think he  was called a Protestant Irishman, and by some called Scotch-Irish, as Waddill is  a Scotch name.
        My grandmother, Rachel Waddell, formerly Rachel Quee, was a native of Philadelphia County, Pa.  Her father, my great-grandfather was a Scotchman.  Her Mother was by name White and of German blood and related to the celebrated David Rittenhouse of Pennsylvania.  My father, Seth Quee Waddill, married Mary Burdine in Pendleton District.  She was a native of Culpeper County, Virginia, and at the age of ten years her father moved to South Carolina, where she married my Father at the age of 18.
       Her father--my grandfather, Riginal Burdine, was a native of Culpeper County, Virginia.  His father, (John Burdine, or possible James, Burdine, as the handwriting is imperfect) was a native of Wales. He came to the colony of Virginia and married a Miss Tanner who was a native  of Great Britain, born  in London, though a German by blood. Riginal Burdine, my grandfather, married Ann Sampson of Culpeper County, Virginia.  She was of English, French and Spanish blood.
     They had several children: my mother, Mary Burdine had one sister older than herself, whose name was Nancy.  This Nancy married James Brown (or  Branen) of South Carolina.  Then my grandfather and grandmother had four sons, John; Jeremiah; Henry and Richard Burdine.
      My grandfather, Riginal Burdine, remained in Culpeper County through out the Revolution.  He was at and assisted in the taking of General Cornwallis  which was the closing battle of the Revolutionary War with Great Britain.
      His oldest son, John, a lad about 16 years old was in the same battle but neither of them were wounded, the nearest was a musket ball, which passed through grandfather's hunting shirt, which was the uniform of the American soldiers and it was the same of the Militia during the War of 1812 between the U.S. and Great Britain.  After the close of the Revolutionary War my grandfather (Burdine) moved to the Pendleton District, South Carolina.
      My grandfather Waddill was in no engagement or battle during the Revolutionary War with Great Britain, except at Ferguson's defeat on King's  Mountain, near the North Carolina and Tennessee line.  Tennessee was at that time a territory of North Carolina.
      My grandfather and grandmother, John and Rachel Waddill, raised ten children--John, the oldest, my father Seth Quee, then Charles, Samuel, James and Jonathan.  These six sons all married and raised families except James who  had no family.  The daughters were four in number, namely: Hester, Margaret (or "Peggy" as she was called), Rachel, and Abby. These all married in Washington County, Tennessee.  Hester married Henry Shields of Maryland and Rachel married his brother David Shields; Peggy (Margaret) married William
Wilson whose descendants live in Missouri.
     My grandfather Waddill although he was in but one battle with the British Army, yet he was used to toil and hardships from several years of Indian warfare, being frequently posted in the upper part of Tennessee.  He came to what is now Washington County, Tennessee, and purchased lands in the little bend of the Noliechuckee River--one of the finest places or tracts of land to the  size of it that I ever saw.  His house was on one of the finest building spots on the earth, being in a bend of the river resembling a horse shoe in
shape, with a fine view of one of the Spurs of the Alleghaney Mountains called the Big Butt, about 12 miles South-East, just far enough to look blue and  rather smooth.
     My grandfather Waddill and grandmother were Presbyterians of the old school, and the family, while raising, were under Presbyterian usage.  Old Samuel Doak being their pastor, who taught the first college in the State of
     My grandfather educated their oldest son, John, for the ministry though he did not follow what he was educated for.  My grandfather Riginal Burdine was what in Virginia was called a High Church of Englandman.  His family was raised under that influence.  My father belonged to no church.  My mother though raised under the Church of England influence was for thirty or forty years an acceptable member of the Methodist Church, and all her children and most of her grandchildren are Methodists, and some of her great grandchildren are in the
same church, fulfilling that portion of the scripture which in substance says, "I will show mercy unto the third and fourth generations of those who love me and keep my commandments."

  (Signed) John S. Waddill

Rec'd from Marie Waddill, March 30, 1931

This letter was quite interesting and full of information. One NOTE: We know that Reginald's father's name was Richard Burdyne/Burdine. The person who sent this to me could not read the hand writing. Also, not knowing the date that Catherine Tanner was born, some Tanner folks say 1717, it is possible that she  was born in England on route from Germany to Virginia. We know that her family  arrived in  Virginia in 1720. Richard and Catherine were married prior to 1740.  Found a land deed/patent from Robert Tanner to Richard in 1739.
Other than that information, everything else in the letter is acurate as far  as I know.

Children listed (below) in  Richard's Will appear to be Henry's and says he is desceased.*[I have one problem here in that with the Probate of Richard's  Will 10 years later in 1835, gives the girls with their spouses, no mention of Albert so he  may have died.  Arena and John are listed in the care of a guardian, Richard B. Purdom. Lucinda is mentioned with husband Henry Curry and Frances is mentioned with husband  Benjamin Alien. But the original will says Lucinda Frances Burdine. That could  have been an error?  I have listed Lucinda  as Lucinda Frances below.

*NOTES on Henry. The Will of Richard mentions Henry as his brother. The  probated Will of Richard 10 years later mentions Nancy widow of Henry. Therefore it is  our conclussion that Henry is the son of Reginald Burdine. Claudia Benson sent this information on Henry: "1800 U.S. Census, Pendleton  District, South Carolina; 1800; p. Utah Valley Regional Family History Center, roll #50;NOTE:  Henry Burdine head of house, one male age 26-45, 4 females under 10,  one female age 10-16, one female age 16-26".

H. VERONICA (REGINALD, RICHARD)  (Veronica3 Burdine; daughter by Dorthea, baptized 15DEC1782, Hebron Church, Culpeper County, Virginia. Earlier information written by James Wade Emison  has Veronica as daughter of Richard with wife Dorothy Gerber (This is the  German of Tanner). This  information was  found to be in ERROR, Veronica IS  Reginald's daughter by  Dorthea Tanner. We do  not know when or where she died, possibly in South Carolina. Dorothy according to Tanner information is still living in 1817.)

His will only mentions 5 of the above children(this is what I have been told). I am currently tring to obtain a copy of Reginald's Will. I received his estate papers and the Will was not with them.
The "Georgia Land Lottery-1803" lists: Man, Wife, Child:3 draws:John Burdine. Jeremiah Burdine, two draws: Richard Burdine, one draw.
Names of John's brother's, Richard and Jeremiah, and John's children were in an earlier history compiled by James Wade Emison, which was also worked on by Mary Hughes Copeland.
Rebecca Blackwell Blanks helped with the above information on Jeremiah and Henry's children and the finding of Will's for  Richard and Jeremiah.
She is descended from Newton Marshall Burdine and has submitted that information as well as children for Jeremiah and for Henry. Some of the full names and birthdates and spouses for children of Newton Marshall were in  notes  by Mrs.  Hageman.
Anthony Dalton submitted the information on Reuben's family of which he is a descendant. His cousin Mary submitted further information on this family.
Craig Kilby submitted information of John Sampson's Will. And Eddins information in Samuel's article next and also on Amos Burdine in Missouri, son of John, in the last article on Richard's children.  And the newly included information  on the Clarks.
Evelyn Flood sent family information on Amos' descendants in Arkansas and I am greatly indebted to her for sharing that information on my husbands line of the Burdines. Thomas Niswonger and Tracy Stubbs and Rhonda Vanderpool also for their information on this line of descendants and Mr.Connie Smith, deceased, for helping me make the connection from John to Amos.
Linda Regan sumitted the records search information for Wilkes County, Georgia.
And documents on Henry Burdine that I sent out earlier this year for your records.
Mary Romero for the death certificate on William B. Burdine and for the many articles on the Mississippi Burdines. And Rebecca Wilson for Burdines in Mississippi and finding Bible of Wesley Burdine.
John Charles Burdine of Louisiana for information on various Burdines.
My thanks to my group for your help and sharing of your information in our search for our ancestors, for pictures and stories, for making this work and a book on the history of the Burdines possible. That book will go to the publisher after I finalize it when we return from our trip and search in September. Our trip has had to be cancelled because of Don's health. I am stil  aiming to October for publishing.

From: burdine@myhome.net (William D. Burdine )
To: AAWesner@aol.com
The children that we have for Reginald come from his son Richard's Will, son of Reginald and Anne Sampson Burdine, first wife and mother of all of the children born to Reginald, except Veronica who is his by his 2nd wife, Dorothy Tanner Burdine. Now, if the information you have is correct he could have have a daughter Hannah. Neither she nor Veronica are mentioned in Richard's Will of 1826, which leads me to believe they are deceased. His probated Will in 1835 says John Deceased 20 years and Henry deceased of Jones County, Georgia. Still
no mention of Veronica or a Hannah. Speculation on my part says they either weredeceased, but the probate court does not say so. Or he did not include siblings of his fathers second marriage in his Will of 1826, only the ones from his father and Anne his mother.
He names:
John, deceased.
Jeremiah, old and infirmed.
Mary Burdine Waddell
Nancy Burdine Brown
Then then ofcourse himself would be 6. Then Veronica not mentioned would be 7.
Hannah could be a possible 8, but we find no information on her.
The children you have for Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdyne are correct. You should have dates from the articles on each of them that I sent.
I was going on the assumption that possibly Nathaniel, Reginald's brother, had a daughter Hannah since we did not have any names for his 6 daughters except for Nancy who married and Anderson. And I thought that since we had all the children listed in Richard's will-son of Reginald, that was the only place to look for a Hannah Burdine, since Reginald's sister Hannah Burdine married Robert Shotwell and they had a son Nathaniel Shotwell who lived in Alabama, which appears to be your Nathaniel Shotwell, then he would need to be married to  the next generation children and with all the names discovered(Ithought) except for Nathaniel's children, that seemed to be the logical place to look.
Maybe some one can shed some more light on this information and maybe we can find Reginald's Will. I thought I found it and sent for it. I only received the Estate papers with a mention of the Will and location, but it was not included in the information that was sent to me. I wrote back and they said it did not exist. The South Carolina Archives and History says there is no Will. If someone knows where else it might be recorded, I wish they'd let me know.
Thanks for trying to help clear up this mystery.
Let me know if you need those article on Reginald and his brothers and sisters again for the dates and all.

1. Susannah BOHANON married Isaac "Shucky" OGLE Sevier Co., TN

Shucky moved with the family to Sevier County, Tennessee as early as
1805, soon after the death of his father.

Isaac was one of the first settlers in Gatlinburg.  No land records prior to 1824 were found for Isaac Ogle but it is shown by Richard Reagan's early grants that Isaac and William, his brother, entered land adjoining Richard's
land on Mill Creek.  This ran from Mill Creek down to "the lane" (Reagan Lane) and nearly to the old river road.  Later records show this land as belonging to Isaac alone and still later to his son, Elijah Ogle.  Isaac also entered land  near the road from the Glades, running down to the mouth of Roaring Fork Creek in Gatlinburg.  As his sons and daughters became of age, he gave them these lands and he moved to the Banner area north of Gatlinburg.  Some BURDINES AT BOYDS CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH - Sevier Co., TN

Isaac and his wife, Susannah, were charter members of the White Oak Flats Baptist Church.  The family appears in the Sevier County, Tennessee Federal Census records, 1830 to 1880.  Isaac died 2 Sep 1881 according to the Death Register of 1881 found in Sevier County Courthouse.

Isaac was buried in the Banner Cemetery.

 In looking into my files, I find that the Mary Bohannon was the Mother of Henry Bohanan who married Amilla Shotwell, they moved from South Carolina to Sevier  County, Tn.  The Children of Henry and AMilla Shotwell Bohanan are:
 (all born in South Carolina, apparently. Henry and Amilla are in 1790 census of SC.)
 Susannah b. 1793, married Isaac Ogle
 Nancy b. 1795 married William Ogle
 Elizabeth b. 1801 married Alexander Dickson  (my line)
 They had four other daughters, and two sons whose names are not known.
 Henry married a 2nd time and had five more children, 3 sons, and two daughters.
 of course, they would not be of the Shotwell line.
 Henry Bohannon fought in the Revolution from Virginia, and I am a member of
 Daughters of the American Revolution with Henry as one of my proven ancestors.
 If any of you are familiar with DAR, then you know the proof must be ironclad before they will accept it.  Would like to be able to document the Shotwell- Burdine line back to the immigrant, eventually, and also the Tanners and Shotwells.

thanks for the information. I do not have anything further on this line. If anyone else does, please contact Genie. Thanks.

Really happy to hear from you. My, you have been busy! I shall see that the rest of the list receives these two e-mails on the Tennessee Burdines.
I am glad you had mention of the land that Samuel Burdine of Smith County,
Tennessee sold some of the acreages that had belonged to his father Nathaniel.
Now we can know for sure that this Samuel is for certain one of Nathaniel's sons.
Yes, it's true the name spellings really make this research difficult. Well, you've given me some work to do now in sorting this all out.
Thanks for the help.

Thanks for sending this information. Your Mary is probably the daughter of Samuel, son of Nathaniel, son of Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdine.  I have not had a chance to do futher search on her nor had a chance to talked to Joe Payne about her. I hope to do that today. In the mean time I will forward your information to the list and see where it leads. If she is not Samuel's daughter, them possible of Nathaniel's two other sons that we have not been able to locate further information on. He is the only one of the Burdines to go to Tennessee and some of his sister Hannah Burdine Shotwell's descendants and Mary Burdine Waddell/Waddill daughter of Reginald.
Nathaniel's brother Samuel remained in South Carolina and most of his  descendants, except his son John who went to Mississippi. Nathaniel's brother John died in Virginia, his descendants went to Kentucky then to Missouri.
Nathaniel's brother Reginald died in North Carolina, but most of his descendants went to Georgia and Alabama. And Nathaniel's sister  Barbara Burdine Gresham's  descendants were mostly in South Carolina with some in Georgia.
I had forwarded to you the information I have to date on Nathaniel. Let me know if you are interested in his brothers and sisters and I will forward them also.

Subject: William Nathaniel Burdine descendants...from Amos
Thanks to the help of my direct cousins Monroe & Ethel Burdine; Lory Haven; and Elliott Harrison I have been able to put this together in a more correct version than the one sent out in 1997/8
Elliott, thanks for sending the record you have. I have been trying to correct the information on it leading up to William Nathaniel Burdine. I have no idea
who put that together (Descendants of William Burdine) and entered it in to Broderbund W.F.T. CD #5, Pedigree #2224     All I can say is it is very wrong.
Many ERROR and many families mixed.  Please if you can try to correct it or let me know who to contact so that I can have it corrected.
I will not even try to correct it here as it is too mixed up.
I will put an order below that you can follow leading to William Nathaniel Burdine.
I forwarded the information on Joseph Nathaniel Burdine son of Amos, son of John, son of Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdine on August 26th. from Sue
Reddell.  He is the father of William Nathaniel Burdine.
I will list each descendant from Richard and Catherine Tanner Burdyne down so you can follow where the information on William Nathaniel should be placed.
Ethel, Lory, Trica and Elliot, if there is anything else that can be added to the Aunts and Uncles let me know.

I have put a * by the descending ancestor.

This is the line of the Burdines from which my husband is descended:

Dear Joe,
Hope you didn't think I was forgetting you. I think we have it!!!! This is two
in a row tonight! I really need to celebrate!
I have read over this and over this and this is what I come up with. This is
Nathaniel Burdine's family! When I sent out the e-mail Saturday with the
information I wanted to search on Nathaniel's sons, Samuel, Abraham and Thomas.
I went back over this e-mail again and there it was.  Abraham and Thomas are not
documented as Nathaniels sons, but the evidence of him having three sons and six
daughters in the census records is a good bet.
Katye Rhoads loaned me a book she just recently aquired. It's a biography of
'James George Thompson 1802-1879' by Mary Wilson Kelsey and Mavis Parrott
Kelsey. Texas A&M University. Katye has telephoned Mary and Mavis and had a nice
conversation with them. I will be contacting them soon-this cold I have has
prevented me from being to sociable- to get permission to use the Burdine
information on Nathaniel in my Book.
I am going back to your earlier e-mails to see if you had sent me another
information and your line that I can add to this. I will get back to you, if I
need further information.
If you saved the e-mail I sent Saturday on information gathering, you should
have the information I sent reguarding these three sons. If you did not, let me
know and I will re-send it.
I am sending this out to the others so they will have the information and maybe
we will be able to make it all fit together.
This is great. One other search I forgot to mention and thanks to John Charles
Burdine for information he sent me in the mail, I will add it to my search list.
I am looking for the Plantation Home of Burdine and any descendants of the
slaves who took the Burdine name when they were freed at the Civil War. Charles
found names of nine colored individuals in the Civil War all with the name of
I just can't tell you all how much help you have each been in helping me gather
the information for the Burdine History I am trying to get written. This is just
wonderful.-Carol Ann

I really hadn't forgotten you, just didn't know what to do with you until I got
that book from Katye.
As far as I can tell I would say that Samuel b. 1784 would be the son of
According to the book I mentioned on page 539 it says"The 1850 Smith County
census (#43-622 lists 'Samuel Burdine'(the sons of Nathaniel) at sixty-six
years, born 1784 in North Carolina. His wife 'Elizabeth', age sixty-four, was
born in South Carolina. They had 'Nathaniel', age 40; Mary age thirty-seven;
John age thirty-three; Martha, age twenty-two; and a three-year old, Elizabeth
Burdine in the household.
There was a Nathaniel Burdine, age thirty to forty, in White County, Tennessee,
in the 1830 census with a son under five, a daughter under five, and a daughter
five to ten years old and a wife twenty to thirty years old. The 1830 census
also included a Thomas Burdine in Wilson County who was thirty to forty years
old with one male five to ten years, on male twenty to thirty years old with on
male five years in th household. This Thomas and this Nathaniel may have been
two sons of Nathaniel Burdine and Ann Lipsbomb" It goes on to say that they
believe that Nathaniel and Ann had three sons and six daughter. But only Samuel
and Nancy have  been proven.
When I call and talk to the authors I will see if there has been any further
research since the book was written.
This is exciting, Joe!
I'll resend the other information following this one. More soon.-Carol Ann

Tom & Carol,
Hope you don't mind that I send this out to everyone. There is a lot of typing
here and it will save me a little time.

I am so glad you sent me this information. I have Hamilton!  Hamilton was the
5th son of Richard, second son of Samuel, second son of Richard and Catherine. So
you are a cousin to the John Fletcher Burdine Sr.'s family that we have been
working on recently and to a few more. I am so excited that I can finaly place
you. Did you know this? I need to re-look at Mike Hunter/Mallett information as
he also has Ozie Broyles Burdine as a relative. This is really exciting!  Mike
we can connect you now too!

I am going to add my notes between your paragraphs. You did a lot of research.
Good job!

I have saved all my e-mails to a Zip, unfortunately, I'm not sure how to get
them back into the browser. Now that I have a scanner, probably. Hopefully as I
am setting up my website, I'll be able to have a place to save information and
such.I have thought of moving it to one of the larger sites, but unsure if I
want to. I subscribe to some of the RootsWeb sites and I enjoy it and I have
found a lot of what I look for there. Once my Web Page is up and running I may
check into linking with them, I'm not sure yet.
Thank you for the commoment on managing my list. I have to admit at times it is
overwhelming, but I am really enjoying it, especially when I can make a
connection like this one today. We need to celebrate!

Tom and Carol, Thank you for forwarding this information on to me. I will add
the information you included to my book. There was a lot here I did not have.

With these names there is a couple others that we can connect soon.

I also want to welcome Bill Dries. He contacted me earlier today. He is
descended from the John Fletcher line also. I will forward his connection as
soon as I receive it.

Have a good evening. Those of you in Texas stay safe!
