Hello Marsha & List,

Your mention of John Durham land sale to David Durham prompts the following
information to consider. Glad to see some chatter on my neck of the woods!

Starting with John Durham who received 250A in Albemarle Co., VA on Turkey
Run & Rolling Creek, North Branches of Hardware River--land adjacent to John
Hudson & Harding Burnley lines; for 25 shillings, from King George III,
14Feb1761. [Virginia Land Office Patents 1756-1761, #33:964/965]

Then, John Durrum of Amherst to David Durrum of Albemarle, for 50 current
money of VA, 250A in Albemarle Co., VA; adjoining John Hudson & Harden
Burnley's lines; 17Jun1778. Wife not mentioned in Indenture, but she is
privately examined and relinquishes Dower. I suppose name could be read as
Mabel, but looks more like I then "s set" abel--Issabel. [DB7:231/232.
Albemarle Co., VA] [Remember Amherst was part of Albemarle]

Then, 15Dec1821, David Durham Senior gives to David Durham Jun, in
consideration of the love and affection due from a father to his son, 225A
bounded by Christopher Hudson, Martin Dawson lying on both sides of Turk run
in AlbCoVA. [Albemarle Co.,VA Vol 22:458/459]

1Jan1822 David Sr leases plantation where David now lives with Martha Manley
to Gilbert Ricks for care. [AlbCoVA DB 22:486-488]

12Nov1831 David Jr sells 225A to John D. Moon 225A both sides Turkey Run
bordering Christopher Hudson decd, Charles Hudson & others. Same land David
Sr to David Jr, land on which David Sr, deceased lately resided and on which
Gilbert Ricks lives. [AlbCoVA DB31:163/164]

David Durham [Jr], 77y, death 28Jul1871 AlbCoVA [Library of VA]

Interesting fact on Tax: 1782-1783; 1787-1794 all David Duram/Durham paying
taxes on 325A. Then 1795 David Durham paying on 225A. In 1815 David M.
Durham paying taxes on 225A on Turkey run Adjoining Chas Hudson.

I have been unable to find a marriage for John Durham to either an Issabel
or a Mabel. [Relationship of John to David unknown.]

Both Davids [Sr & Jr ] had sons named John. John b.abt1817 m.Elizabeth
Burgess; John b.abt1782 m.Mourning Burruss, moved to IL]

My line:
David Sr m. Mary [poss 2nd wife, relationship derived from David & wife Mary
selling land]. His son:

David Durham Jr. m. Polly Burrus d/o Walter Burrus 19Mar1817 AlbCoVA. His

William S. "Wilkey" Durham m. first Mary Jane Gianniny 7Nov1861 AlbCoVA. His

John Randolph Durham m. Lilly Brooks 28Jan1896 AlbCoVA. His son:

Robert Durham m. Ethel Roberts 15Dec1931, Charlottesville VA. His issue
brings us to my generation.

I am waiting for DNA results from my Durham male line.
