I've hit a brick wall and have been unable to find out who the parents of my William Burgess are.
William Burgess was born May 1830-1832 in Ohio (have seen these various years, most say 1830) . He married Mary Ann Pinkerman on July 3, 1848 in Lawrence County, Ohio. He died on January 9, 1917 in Glenwood, Mason, WV. Buried in Union Ridge Cemetery, Cabell, WV.
He's the only Burgess in the cemetery, buried there by his daughter Sarah E. Burgess Mount, who is also later buried there.
The earliest I can first find documentatino on him is the 1850 Census in Windsor, Lawrence, Ohio with his wife Mary both listed as age 20 with no children yet.
William named his oldest son Jackson Alexander and his other son William J. Possible these are names used again further up the line.
Note: Conflicting data on what states he lists his parents being born in. 1850 & 1900 census' list both of his parents being born in Virginia, 1880 both listed as Ohio, and in 1910 census he says his father was born in Kentucky and mother in Ohio.
Thank you very much for any help!
