I am looking for information on the Birchett's 1600 and 1700 in Virginia. I will share my information on the Birchett's dating from about 1800 to present. I am at a road block connecting back to Richard, James, Edward, and Robert Birchett.

My gg grandfather was Abner Birchett(spelled Burchet in 1850 TN census from Henderson Co) born in 1823. At this time, we are trying to find his father and a connection to the Birchett's in Prince George Co. VA. We think his father may have been Elijah born in 1783 in North or South Carolina. Maybe there is a connection there? Wouldn't that be great.

Thanks for your help

I am also a descendant of John and his son Dennis BURCHETT/BIRCHETT who Randall Baker outlined in his query in November, 2000. Other sons we know of were James and John. Are you descended from this same family who were in McNairy Co., TN?

Can you help make some connections for us since you have information back to the 1820's?

John was born 1782 in NC and Dennis was born 1819. My husband's grandmother was born 1855 in McNairy County,TN, but then their family moved to NE Arkansas (Greene/Clay County)when she was a young girl.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Fred. Thanks for the reply. I would love to see the data you have. Since I am just really getting started, I cannot go back beyond 1823 with certainty. That is the stumbling block. If Abner's family originally came from Prince George Co., maybe your data will be the connecting link. Sure hope so. Abner married Mary Catherine Smith in 1853 according to family tales. Children were George Washington(1865-1954), Elen(1863-1949), Marion(1868-1938),Robert(1872-1897), Helen(1870-1961), Jasper(1857-?),Mary(1859-?), Wright(1861-?), and Henry (1873-1879). As the story goes, Henry died after being kicked by a mule. Do any of these names fit your data?

Thanks,
Jo Ann Birchett

I just posted the following in the Henderson County Tennessee Board. Could there be some connection to your Ancestry?

I am looking for who may be the father of William Thomas Birchett b.8/19/1854 in Henderson Co. and d.11/14/1946. His mother was Penelope Barrow b.12/12/1829 in N.C. and d.? Penelope was the daughter of Sherrod Barrow b.7/8/1810 in N.C.and d.1876. W.T. Birchett was married to Texasanna Gately b.11/28/1856 in Henry Co. and d.7/8/1940. W.T. and T.A. Birchett are my grandmother Opal (Jordan) Wilson's grandparents.

The story told by my 95 year old grandmother, is that when W.T. was a small child (1860?), his father would come back at night to visit with his mother. W.T. would act as if he were asleep, and listen to them talk. His father would plead with Penelope that she and the children come with him to wherever he lived. He told her that he had mailed her letters, but it seems that her father Sherrod had been burning them in the fireplace. This is all that I know about W.T.'s father.

I am also looking for any information concerning Penelope such as when she died, where she is buried, where her father is buried, the date of his death, etc. My grandmother also tells me that when her mother Dessie (Birchett) Jordan was a small child, she remembered Penelope as being paralyzed, and living with her parents W.T. and T.A. Birchett. This would have been sometime after 1890. Penelope is listed in the 1880 Census as 50 years old, and living in W.T. Birchetts household.

Thanks

It's great to hear from you, but I don't see any connection unless William Thomas' father was a brother or cousin to my gg grandfather Abner. Since I don't know any of his (my gg grandfather's) siblings, I'm at a stopping point. Maybe somebody will see this msg and fill in the blanks. Sure hope so.
