The second of nine children born to John C & Ester (Terry, aka Terriy) Burris of Liberty Twp, Highland Co OH, William married Celia Bellard abt 1785 in NC. From a picture of her tombstone, it appears her name may have been Cecilia. Searching for marriage record and will post here when located.

Children with Celia:
1) George Burris
2) Rachel Burris (b. 1796), m: John Thornburgh.
3) Martin Burris
4) Frances Burris, m: Joseph Roberds.
5) Phebe Burris (b. 1804), m: William M Jacks.
6) William Burris Jr (b. 1807), m: Elizabeth Arnold.

Searching for more children.

William is my 3rd Gr-Grand Uncle.

Marriage information graciously provided by Rebecca Paddon. Thanks to Michael at Ancestry, for the photo of William's tombstone.

Note: Second marriage to Nancy is an error. Celia lived to be 76 yrs old and died in 1847.
