It is believed that Nancy Jane Brandon was born between 1770 and 1780 in Halifax County, Virginia to Eleanor Richmond 1731-1801 and Francis Brandon 1730-1789 and died on 24 Dec 1842 in Caswell County, North Carolina. She married Thomas Allen Burton 28 Dec 1802 in Caswell County, North Carolina. Her spouse, Thomas died in 1855 in Alabama. Their children were:
* Diannah Burton 1803-1878, m. Miles Kimbro

* Drury Langley Burton 1820-1850, m. Annie Eliza Oliver
* Absolom Farrar Burton 1823-1903, m. Margaret Ann Greenlees

Grandmother of John R. Burton, the owner in 1921 of the property where this cemetery is located.

Additional Notes:

Died when she fell down steps on Christmas Eve. Name also seen as Jane Brandon Langley. It is possible that she was a young widow when she married Thomas Burton. Note that a son was named Drury Langley Burton. (Source: Burton: Our Caswell County N.C. Ancestry (1793-1978), Margaret Burton Woods, Beatrice Burton Hornaday (1978) at 33-34.)

Jane died from a fall down the backsteps. She apparently fell on some icey steps and hit her head on a rock. She is buried in the "old Burton cemetery located on the Samuel J. Cobb farm." (p. 39, Burton: our Caswell Co. ancestry," Hornaday & Woods.)

Uncertain if this property was ever known as the Samuel J. Cobb farm.
