Anyone have info on Jesse Durham who married Elizabeth "Betsy" Patterson around 1828 in Franklin County, VA?
I have found Jesse and Betsy in the 1830, 1840 census living in Franklin County, VA.In the 1850 census they are living in Henry County around Horsepasture.In the 1860 census Jesse and Betsy are living in Surry County, NC near my ancestors - William H. Durham.Later in 1870 - Jesse has moved back to Henry County, VA near "Ridgeway", not far from Horsepasture.
There is also a David Durham (it looks likes he never marries) living in Franklin Co., VA at the same time as Jesse.I believe that Jesse and David Durham are brothers.David Durham never leaves Franklin County, VA.
My question is: Are Jesse and David related to the descendants of Gregory Durham and Elizabeth Shelton??Gregory Durham is listed in the Tax List for Henry County in 1800 and 1810.His father-in-law - James Shelton gave 150 acres of land to Gregory Durham on February 20, 1780. (Deed Book 2 - page 4)
