More information for George Washington Durham, 24 Jun 2005. While I havent
found any direct information that this George Durham is the son of John Hardin
Durham, I think available makes that a most likely. George Washington
Durhams first wife was Sarah Rachel Burdine, born March 1879 Rockcastle
County, I havent found a death date for her but believe GW was a widower
when he married Willa Rector Proctor 1914 in Rockcastle County. GW married Sarah
Rachel 9 July 1898 in Rockcastle. Their children were:
1. Elbert, born 11 May 1899 Rockcastle County, died 1971 Crawfordsville, IN.
2. Mary, born about 1902 KY.
3. Alfred, born about 1905 Rockcastle County.
4. Bert, born about 1910 KY.
5. Alberta, born about 1912 KY.
I have George Washington Durhams birth as Dec 1875 Indiana, as noted above
the birth listed on his gravestone is 1871. I have a death date for Ellen Daugherty,
first wife of John Hardin Durham as Nov 1876. My theory is George was an infant
and John Hardin left the baby with his sister, Mary Adams when his wife Ellen
died. We know John H was in the area in 1877 as he was in a court case in Rockcastle
concerning the estate of his father Joseph Durham.
Wila Rector Proctor Durham was the daughter of Thomas Rector, stepson of Joseph
Durham. I will appreciate any information toward further identifying the parents
of George W Durham.
Gravestone states George Durham's birth to be "1871".
