I have a Burgess Gaither b. 1807 married to Elizabeth Sharpe Erwin b. 1804 (dau. of William W. Erwin.They had three children:William, Alfred and Delia.This is the Burgess Gaither who was county clerk of Burke Co.He was a lawyer who went on to have a successful practice.My records show he was the son of Burgess Gaither and Amelia Martin.The elder Burgess Gaither is the son of Edward Gaither and Eleanor Whittle.Edward is the son of Benjamin Gaither and Sarah Burgess.Benjamin Gaither(1681) is the son of John Gaither (1640 - Nov. 12, 1702 All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel Co., Maryland) and Ruthe Morley of Anne Arundel Co., Maryland.
I am still sorting out this line, but I have a few more details if you're interested.
