BORROUGHS, BURES, BURIS, BURISS, BURRES, BURRESS, BURRISS, RICE -
So little is known about my Daniel Rice and his wife Judith / Judy. Her maiden name may have been Burress.
Daniel shows up on records in Henry Co, VA as early as 1778 tax records, buys land in 1782, sells same land with wife "Judy" in 1785. Where was he prior to that first tax record?
Entry date of 1786 for his NC land grant recorded in Greene Co, TN, today it is Cocke Co, TN.
Daniel and wife "Judith" joined the Big Pigeon Baptist Church in 1789. He takes his letter from the church in 1812 and seems to disappear. Cocke Co, TN is a burned county, so I don't know if his wife was still alive at that time to relinquish her dower right on sale of his land.
Their son Joseph, born ca 1800 TN, shows up in Rhea Co, TN records, but no Daniel. Is John Rice in Rhea Co, TN related to my Rice line? Maybe a brother to Daniel???? There is interaction between my Joseph with John and his two sons Elijah and George.
DNA proves our Daniel, group 11, is not the son of Henry Rice, commonly called Henry Rice the grist miller. We are not related to Deacon Edmund Rice in New England, either.
I will be going to SLC in a few weeks, would love some new clues to work on while in the FHL. Gladly share what I have, or find.
Some of the more common spellings found for Burress are: Burres, Burriss, Buriss, Bures, Buris and even Borroughs.

DARE, SIERS -
For the last few years I have been doing my genealogy. But I keep running into a road block concerning one Sarah Dare who married Reuben Siers. She was born in 1820 somewhere in Virginia. I am hoping that maybe you can help me with finding out anything about her. From who her parents were and what nationality she was. There is nothing about her except her birth and death and marriage. Thank you in advance

STANDRIDGE -
I am looking for the parents of Isaac Standridge, born about 1800-1803 in South Carolina. He states in the 1880 census for SC that both of his parents were born in Virginia, but I do not know what county. Can anyone suggest how I might go about finding any Standridges in Virginia from 1770-1800? Any help would be appreciated.

COLLINS, DALTON -
I am trying to get some info on a Levi Dalton also went by Lee Dalton. He lived in Wise Co. but I understand where he was buried is in Lee Co. I'm told it was a placed called Keokee burial site. I'm told there were may not have been any other graves and could have been just some acreage that a friend or relative of Levi owned. That is about the only info I have. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack but I like a challenge. He was born about 1902 in TN and married a Bessie Collins, had three children Virginia (DOB 1919), James (DOB 1921) and Frances (DOB 1922). Apparently he died around 1935 but there is no one around that can confirm that and I can find nothing on his death. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

RODGERS, ROGERS, WHITE -
I am looking for surname Rodgers or Rogers (both spellings have been applied to my ancestor). His full given name James Martin Rodgers (Rogers) born 1834 in Virginia (unknown county or city). He married Sarah C. White in Highland Ohio 10 Sep 1868 and shows up in the 1870 census of Fairfield, Highland Ohio and the the 1880 Census in Mayfield Grand Traverse Michigan were he stays untill his death in 1910. I know very little about him. He shows in all records as black or mullatto. In the 1910 census I found my great grandfather living with him as a young boy listed grandson and white. A recent discovery that my family who till this time has been white or native American, discovering black or African American roots is amazing. I have since been able to confirm with my grandfathers last living sibling that yes this was a dark secret "never mentioned". My assumptions are little is known of these ancestors because the obvious it was not a very friendly time for Black persons but possibly I wonder did he escape or was he freed. Any possible leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

BENNETT, GREEN -
I am looking for Larken/Larkin Born in Va. abt. 1785 I do not know the county but think it is Pittsylvania. I don't even know why I think this is his birthplace. I think he had a brother or uncle named Rice B. Green b.abt. 1792 VA. Was in the war of 1812. They both moved to Ga. and lived in nearby counties at the same time. His children's names are Rice B. Green, Forast Green and Ezekial Green as far as I can tell. His wife's name was Betsy Bennett b. 1795 in SC. He was married in 1811 in Ga. So you see he left VA. at an early age. There was a Forrest Green in the same county, Jackson, in Ga at the same time. He may have also been kin.
