Hi Delilah, your mention of the town of Stevenson, in Jackson Co got my attention. If you would help me, I would love to know how it got it's name and the names of the Stevensons the town is named for . I have Stevensons in my line from AL and this might be very very helpful to know if they are connected to this town. Thanks, Molly ----- Original Message ----- From: "delilah" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: "Andrina Womack" <email@example.com> Sent: Sunday, June 03, 2012 10:19 AM Subject: Re: [ALJACKSO] Burch family >I found 2 reference to BURCH I my Jackson County book - not much >information > > COUNTY COMMISIONERS > 1888 N.B.

I seem to have just found two different Burch families. It could be the same Burch family thou. William Stapleton Burch was a son of Thomas. He was born in 14 Jun 1809 in NC and died 1872 in AL. He married Lucinda "Polly" Carlton and when she died Emily Caroline Matlock. I believe the N B Burch you found is his son Napoleon Bonaparte Burch. The one I'm looking for is W. S. Burch who married Harriet Keith Ervin who while on a visit to her aunt in Darlington Co, SC died. She had a daughter Rosalie who married J Theodore Herpin b. 1829 d. 1868 and maybe S. C. Theilgard 20 Oct 1874 in Mobile, AL. Both W. S. Burch's were born about the same time but one in NC and one in SC. It's possible they are from the same family but distantly related. No proof thou. Another branch of the family moved to Mt. Meigs, Montgomery, AL. For some reason they seem to have floated between AL and MS. What gets strange is nephews went with the uncle and everybody thought for years he was a son when he was actually a nephew but nobody knows who he is the son of, named John Clothier Burch born 1803 in SC and died 1837 in Montgomery AL. Since everybody says he died of a slit throat I can't help but think Indians but again no proof.
