James Burke from Virginia

+1 vote

I am looking for descendents of James Burke of Burke's Garden in Tazwell County Virginia fame.  He has a pretty extensive online genealogy but I haven't yet found anyone in WikiTree working very far down from him.  He was a loyalist in the revolutionary war and disowned members of his own family that fought on the side of the American Revolution.  My Burke line may be related.  [[Burke-1013|Joseph Burke]]

Any assistance would be appreciated.

James Burk (Burke)

Born about 1705 (various dates, mostly earlier) in Ulster or Limerick, Ireland; nothing concrete.

Died 1783 Surry County, North Carolina

Married 1st to Mary Bane 11 September 1730 at Goshen Meeting House,

Chester County, Pennsylvania. Married 2nd to Lucretia Reese/Rees Griffith between 29 May and 29 August 1751 in Augusta County, Virginia.

Father: Speculation exists. No Burks attended or were witnesses to James Burk's wedding, despite reports of one or more Burks in the area. Names given to his children do not seem to follow strict Quaker naming patterns.

Mary Bane: Some gedcoms use Mary Jane Bane, but neither Goshen Quakers nor other records mention “Jane.”
