estimated age at death: 75 In the 1900 Census for Albemarle (Scottsville, District 0012), Willie Durham, age 4 (b. April 1896), is listed as "Nephew" in the household of Sallie (Durham) Snead, b. Dec 1854 VA. Also listed with this family is John Durham, age 91 (b. ca May 1809) listed as "Father", and Elizabeth Durham, age 67 (b. ca Aug 1832) listed as "Mother", and "Sister" Lutie Durham, b. ca Dec 1860).

NOTE: According to the 1900 Census for Albemarle, Willy Durham is NOT likely to be a child of John and Elizabeth, but a marriage record showing William H. Durham married to Mattie Morris on 7 Jan 1928 in Norfolk, Virginia, lists William Durham's parents as "Jns Durham" and "Bettie". I place William Henry Durham as a child of "Betty Durham", daughter of John and Elizabeth (Burgess), until more evidence can be found.
