BevI hope you are still searching and looking at your posted messages because here it is 2005 and I just found you. Thomas Burress/Burris (full name JOSHUA THOMAS BURRESS/BURRIS) married Leodicea "Dicey" Carden on 17 Dec 1792 in Goochland VA.They had four children: Robert (Married phyllis woolbank they had 14 children including a Dicey born 1747/48.) next was Samuel b 1695/96; Frances 1698/99; John 1700/01; and david 1703/04.I believe each of their children may have named one of their children dicey also.By 1810-1830 the family had spread to NC and IN and KY.I am guessing that all of the Thomas/Dicey children were dead by that time.
I am not sure which of their children my line descends from for sure because I cannot account for 121 years between Joshua Thomas Burris of VA and Joshua Thomas Burris of Daviess CO where my great great grandfather John Burris was born in 1823 in Washington Twp, Daviess CO.
