I have found a listing for the grave of a 16 day old baby girl, dated 1698 in Prince William Co, VA. At that time it was probably Stafford Co. It says that in 1938 there were 2 graves located on some property. It says one headstone was unreadable, the other says: Thre----- Rison Daughter of Bur--- Rison Died 1698, aged 16 days
Does anyone have any ideas who these people might be? This fits in with the Charles Co, MD- Stafford Co, VA records of early Risen-Risons, since these counties are separated only by the Potomac river. There is always the possibility that the person who recorded this in 1938 misread some of the letters, or the person transcribing it onto the computer may have made a typo. So any thoughts on these people even if the names don't match exactly may be helpful.
