Bio and Links
I was born in 1952 in Eastman, GA to a father, who was a 20 year veteran of the U.S. Navy and a wonderful stay at home mom. I am the eldest of 7 children. I think I have been actively doing genealogy for some 20 to 30 years now; I lose tract. My Burton ancestry traces from Accomack Co, VA to Sussex Co, DE, to Craven and Duplin Co, NC to Burke and Montgomery Co, GA and finally to Dodge Co, GA. I retired from the University of Florida in 2010 and so I have more free time on my hands to work on genealogy research, which is my passion. In the search for my BURTON roots, I have accumulated a significant database of BURTONs originating out of VA, NC, SC and GA, prior to 1850. I try to help others, whenever I can. I am also trying to interconnect all the BURTONs of the southeast prior to 1850.

Ferguson family of Montgomery Co., GA
Bob, who do you perceive to be the parents of Katherine Ferguson (b. 1836) and Rosabella Ferguson Phillips (b. 1845)? Is it possible that they were daughters of unmarried Isabel Ferguson (1819-1904)? I know she had a daughter in 1863, Isabella Florence, who married James Thomas Dickens. Her father was more than likely John Graham, who was living in the house with her mother and grandmother in 1860. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Bob, I'm just now seeing your message to me you posted on Denise's page. I haven't had time as yet to review all of your material, but will try to get around to it in a couple of days and get back to you. Thank you for your input. It always helps when everybody works together. You may e-mail me at if you'd like.

Susan L. Burton
Hello Mr. Burton,

I see from the note on my profile that Susan L. Burton is your family line, if you would like ownership of Susan's Memorial, I would be happy to transfer her to you.

She is kin, but my family line comes down from Alice Christan Ferguson Connell and Bazel Connell. They were my Great-Great-Grand Parents.

It's funny that I have ownership of your direct line, but not my own!

I would love to swap information with you.

Thank you very much for the information you left on my profile. I enjoyed it very much and it was also very helpful in clearing up the mystery of the like headstones. I would like to think that they choose the emblem of the "Ships Anchor" to commiserate their immigration to America from Scotland.
