Bourlands in America:
Ebenezer J. Bourland, arbitrarily listed as fifth child of "Immigrant" John Bourland, was born about 1768 in Virginia. He moved with his parents before the Revolution to Salisbury District, North Carolina, where he married a girl from the Yadkin River area of that state in 1790. His bride, Abigail Loving, sister to Mary Loving who had married John Bourland, Junior, was born about 1776.

Settling in Franklin County, Arkansas, first in Lone Elm and later in an unincorporated community called White Oak, officially, and dubbed "Bourland Crossroads" by the local residents. He [Ebenezer] farmed here with his son, Henderson, until about 1842, when he died. He is buried on what used to be Henderson Bourland's farm. His grave is not marked. Abigail lived on until 1866 and her grave is marked with a stone which reads: "GRANDMA". This little burial place is all but forgotten and will disappear if it is not soon reclaimed. It contains about twenty graves in addition to those of Abigail and Ebenezer.
Engraving on the back of the gravestone:
Early in the 1830s they arrived here in Arkansas Territory. Their journey brought them from the Carolinas to Kentucky, then on to Alabama before settling here in Cravens. Pioneering done, they went on to dwell with God Eternal in the Heavens. J. Lloyd
