I would like to know more about any Burgess families profiled in the Macon County Heritage book. In particular I am trying to find info on a William Burgess, son of Benjamin Burgess of Franklin County GA and brother of Sallie Burgess Wilbanks of Cartogeechaye, Macon County. William appears in Clay County NC in 1877. His family is in Alabma by 1898. They have not been found on the 1880 census. Could they have been in Macon County??
