Y-DNA and the Eckart Y-DNA Project have concluded William Burgess' line is of male Acord/Eckard/Eckart descent from the Casper and Peter Eckart line's of Pennsylvania.

Based on Y-DNA matches, it was narrowed down that he was more than likely the child of one of the son's of John "Old Jack" Acord and Rachel Combs. Which one of their many sons though, was the question.

After much research, autosomal DNA has proven William Burgess is the son of John "Jack" Acord (1796-1898). DNA was triangulated between a descendant of William Burgess, a descendant of William Floyd Acord (Jack's son) and a descendant of Nicatie Cherokee Acord (Jack's daughter).

All three descendants shared the same chunk of DNA on chromosome 15 for approximately 12cM.


Biography

Marriage
William Burgess
Mary Pinkerman
July 3 1848
Lawrence County, Ohio [1]

Burial: Union Ridge Cemetery Cabell County West Virginia

From cemetery survey records his stone lists his birth as May 9 1832. Majority of Census records indicate he was born in May of 1830, the same year of his wife. This would also make much for sense that he had just turned 18 before he was married, not 16. His military records also coincide with birth year of 1830.

Buried in this cemetery by his daughter Sarah E. (Burgess) Mount, who was also later buried in this cemetery with her husband.

Married Mary Ann Pinkerman on July 3, 1848 in Lawrence County, Ohio.

DNA Confirmation:

Y-DNA and the Eckart Y-DNA Project have concluded William Burgess' line is of male Acord/Eckard/Eckart descent from the Casper and Peter Eckart line's of Pennsylvania.

Based on Y-DNA matches, it was narrowed down that he was more than likely the child of one of the son's of John "Old Jack" Acord and Rachel Combs. Which one of their many sons though, was the question.

After much research, autosomal DNA has proven William Burgess is the son of John "Jack" Acord (1796-1898).

DNA was triangulated between K.B., Burgess-4852,(descendants of William Burgess), J.O., (descendant of William Floyd Acord (Jack's son)) and R.B., (a descendant of Nicatie Cherokee Acord (Jack's daughter)).

All four descendants share the same chunk of DNA on chromosome 15 from marker position 86870303 - 91864004 for approx. 13cM.

Update: Also, autosomal DNA triangulated between Burgess-4852 (direct male descendant of William Burgess), R.B. (related through Jack Acord's daughter Nicati) and Deana (Weeks) Anderson Weeks-494 descendant of Combs-92 & Spangler-129 through son Combs-332 on Chromosome 4 from position 35067008 - 40453282 for approx. 8cM.
