Seeking info. on James Burke who settled in What was then Washington County (now Russell) in about 1772. I am descended from a James Burke born same locale 1774 and believe mine was son of the 1772 James Burke. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
with information. Believe the 1772 James Burke may be the "disobedient" son of earlier James Burke (discoverer of Burkes Garden in SW VA, who moved to Surry County, NC and in his will there disinherited son James.
