DOB is the best guess based on information available at present.

Moses Burris was the third child of 9 known children of John C. Burris and Ester (Terry) Burris. He married Frances McKinney about 1789. They had 12 children: James (1798-1848), William (1800-?), Phoebe (1801-?), Rachel (1802-?), Jonathan (1804-1857), Esther (1805-1863), Miles (1806-1870), Elizabeth "Betsy" (1808-1889), Mary (1813-1873), Daniel (1817-1849), Moses Jr. (1820-1862), and Rebecca (1824-?).

The headstone cannot be located within the confines of the cemetery. If it is present, it may have fallen over and been buried with the passage of almost 200 years. The cemetery has been neglected badly and there are numerous stones that have fallen over. The entire area is overgrown. Winter is probably the only time of year in which further stones could potentially be found, and perhaps only through the use of ground-penetrating radar.
