For those of you who have interest in the DNA project be sure to check out Michael Burgess’ site (DEAD LINK). If any of your family is not included in this list, you should join the DNA project to help Michael knit together the various identified Burgess families.
Interesting things do happen as mentioned above. But the Armstead line still has Burgess connections anyway! How? Well Keziah was most likely the daughter of Mary Burgess of the William Burgess line in Bedford County Va. But in addition many of us have other links to the William line.
Three of William and Suzanna Burgess’ daughters married three Mitchell boys in Bedford County. Armstead Lewis, (Armstead/Keziah) married Lucy Mitchell, who was the daughter of Eldred Mitchell. So from Armstead Mitchell down, we have at least two maternal connections to the William Burgess family.
