Thomas Burford born abt. 1750, Richmond Virginia died 1838 Hall County Ga. Wife Mary Wade. Thomas was my gg-grandfather. He was well known from his revolutionary war service until his death. He is very easy to follow through the war and after moving from Virginia to South Carolina and then on to Georgia. There is so much known about him yet no one can seem to document his parents. He was born in Virginia. he was a revolutionary war soldier. He was a fremer. He lived in Virginia South Carolina, land Georgia. He knew William Burford b.1733 and his family and  the  Edward Wade Sr. b. 1727 family, both were at one time together at Valley Forge in 1778 with George Washington, he married his daughter Mary Wade and named my great grandfather Edward William Burford after him and I believe William Burford. He is buried in Hall County, Georgia. Thanks Clarence W. Burford

I hope these are your Burfords.  Thomas (1750-1838( married Mary Wade (1763-1829) Thomas's parents were John Burford (1710-1766) and Mary Miles.  .   Mary Wade's parents  were Edward Wade and Mary Clements. John Burford's parents were Daniel Burford (1690-1756) and Sarah Miles.  Sarah's father was Daniel Miles. The Burfords came from England and there is a listing of baronets at   thepeerage.com.  Click on surname. When alphabet comes up, click B, then scroll down to Burford.  A cross check of Buford and Bufford might come in handy as spellings varied

Yes, these are the right Burfords.  And Edward Wade, who fought in the War of 1812.  I wish I had my notes where I could refresh my memory on them.  It's been 10 years since I worked on that line.
