    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. 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.
