Author: gsmock1 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.burgan/7.28/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Patrick Burgan being married twice was an error made some years ago because Patrick gave sons Daniel and James both the middle name of Patrick. It was James Patrick and not his father that married Elizabeth English. James Patrick's son James was born in Westmoreland Co, PA in 1782 and he married Elizabeth Smock born in Somerset Co., NJ in 1781. This James named his first two sons Daniel and James who later moved to Vigo Co., IN. Daniel Patrick and Mary Clymer's daughter Keturah/Ketturah married John McClain and had two known sons and several daughters, One of which, Lavina, married Barnet "Barney" Smock and eventually moved to Clay Co., Nebraska.

I do know that I scanned them, but they are all on my old computer that I can't turn on right now. I think that I might have them in my sent folder at Yahoo. I will forward you what I have. I AM one of the researchers that you had contact with. I remember that you had a hard time believing that Keturah could be Daniel's daughter since that would mean that first cousins Sarah Jane Burgan and Samuel Harris married (though I found numerous first cousins that married while researching different families).

I do know late 2008 I was pursuing this and had contact with several researchers. I relocated from New Mexico back to California right at that time Dec 2008 and haven't done any research since. I've been trying to find Keturah's parents for 20 plus years so that is something that would definitely have made an impression on me. Do you have the pension file in a digital format that you could resend? My email is [email protected] Was what you sent attached to an email? Being a "collector" I must have old emails on one of my external hard drives. If you can't resend do you have a reference number for the National Archives or know what group he served with so I can order it. This evidence then means that this Keturah Burgan is the sister of Rachel Burgan who married Kinney Harris and moved to Ohio...who's son Samuel Harris turned around and married the dau of Keturah and John McClain (Sarah Jane McClain) who wound up in Kansas.

Author: gsmock1 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.burgan/136.1.1.2/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I will try this again and hopefully not loose it! In answer to Valeries question - what I have is Ketturah/Keturah Burgan was the daughter of Daniel Patrick Burgan and Mary Clymer. Daniel Patrick was the son of Patrick Burgan and Nancy Evens. Keturah married John McClain and had several daughters and two known sons vis Jacob and Elery. Elery was buried in Iowa along with his father John. At some point Keturah and John were separated or divorced with Keturah remaining in PA and John settling in Iowa. Keturah's will had her name as Caturah and she signed it with an X indicating she could not read or write. I did not follow all of her daughters, only Lavina who married Barnet "Barney" Smock and had three sons and one daughter. Both Barnet and Lavina were buried in the Edgar Cemetery, Clay county, Nebraska. My problem of quite a few years was finding the identity of the father of James Burgan who married Barnet's aunt Elizabeth Smock. Just last year it came to light James father was James Patrick Burgan, brother of Daniel Patrick Burgan. Since both men had the middle name of Patrick it created a problem and an error made many years ago. I hope this helps in a small way, Gene Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

I descend from John McClain/Ketturah. My first question...do you have your family tree posted somewhere...if so could you send me the link? I've been looking for Keturah and her family name for years....I have a death certificate from one of her children showing her name was Keturah Verges.....that lead me on dead end chase for years and I finally thought it was probably Burgess.....well there was such a name in Westmoreland/Fayette area but no luck. Lo and behold tonight (haven't done any research for several years) Kinney Harris popped into my head (he married Rachel Burgan who I've known of and her parents for years)---in looking at the Burgan list of kids tonight I see for the first time a Ketturah Burgan and showing she married John McClain. There was no reference given and I've written the owner of the tree. Do you per chance have such as I think you showed this connection as well.

Author: mowilgo Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.burgan/1.3.5.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Karen, Contact me if you are still on this thread. I have been assisting an acquaintance whose relative is Ellen Condon Barrett. I think I have been able to put together some of the Burgan tree. They start in Ohio, move to Iowa, from which Charles and George, brothers, join the Union Army to fight in the Civil War. Charles already had his son George S with a wife who I only find in 1870. By 1880 Charles and son George S are in Missouri working in a mill. Next in 1900 I see Charles married to a much younger woman, and with 5 new children. I am certain it is the same Charles Burgan as the Civil War records connect him back to Iowa and Ohio. I was out to Mount Greenwood Cemetery where George, Ellen and Charles are buried in graves without tombstones. I have some of the people on my Ancestry page, under the Garrison tree. The Garrisons are not related to the Burgans -- I just needed a place to put them since the Burgans belong to my acquaintance, not me.

Author: gsmock1 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.burgan/136/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Received in August 2008 was a Burgan family genealogy compiled by Dr.E.E. Lindell beginning with William Burgan of Scotland and his son Patrick born about 1709-1712 who came to America in 1732. Patrick married Nancy Evens/Evans and lived in Bucks county Pennsylvania. On a family group sheet showing a second wife Elizabeth English with children William b 1777 his wife Mary Brown, James b. 1755-1764 his wife Elizabeth Smock, Joseph b. before 1764, Isaiah b. 1791, and unknown daughter and two unknown sons. On a second Family sheet Patrick is shown with wife Nancy Evans???? and one son Daniel P. b. 1752 wife Mary Clymer. See anything odd here?? James Burgan b.1782 in Westmoreland county PA married Elizabeth Smock b.1781 in Somerset county NJ, clearly this not the son of Patrick Burgan b. bet 1709-1712 and Elizabeth English. How do I know? Two things, Isaiah Burgan b.1791 was the son of Elizabeth English and t6he younger brother of James b .1782 but not the son of Patrick Burgan from tax records he died in or before 1787 in Bucks county, PA. Who was James Burgan's father? look back at the second sheet giving the name Daniel P.(Patrick) Burgan as the only son of Patrick and Nancy Evens/Evans. If Elizabeth English did not marry Patrick as his second wife then what Patrick did she marry? The answer is James Patrick Burgan b. 1755-1764. My sole intent in doing this has been to Identify the correct parents of James Burgan b. 1782 in Westmoreland county, PA who married my gg grandfathers sister Elizabeth Smock.
