Re: BERTON, BIRTON or BURTON, Nancy/Ann(e) m. William Murdock, King George Co., VA
If these Berton/Burtons are related to me, I have found no positive proof thus far.
The Nancy (Anne) BirtonBerton/Burton that married my William Murdock (b. 1767) should have been born between 1765 -1772.That would have made her between 16 and 23 when she and William married in 1788.
The marriage that I found for a Charles Burton and Jane Chapman was in 1770.That means if my age guesstimate on Nancy is correct, then it is possible that Charles and Jane are her parents.The trouble is that I cannot seem to find anything more on this Charles and Jane.
There is one Nancy that I have seen born in 1758 (parents: John and Agnes Merryman) - too old and one Nancy (parents: Charles and Mary Hunt) born in 1784 - too young.
William Murdock's sister, Joanna Murdock, did marry William Storke Jett (father: Thomas Jett; uncle: Francis Jett).William's grandfather was Jeremiah Murdock.Maybe there is some connection, I would just like to find it.
