DURHAM was born on 5 Apr 1778 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.2 He died on 5 Jun 1847 in Mercer
County, Kentucky.2 Hi Byron,
My name is Judith Durham. My husband's uncle and I have been working on the Durham
family genealogy for over 10 years. I have just gotten on Ancestry and have come
across your database and other Durham family sites. First - thank you. The sites
are great. Second - my husband's uncle and I had a great jumping off point because
we have a copy of 'A Chronology compiled from facts given in the DURHAM FAMILY
BIBLE and from information supplied by Margaret Durham Bridges and others...Originally
compiled 1947, Revised 1962, Families of those names marked with an * are followed
on a later page.' I am not sure if you have ever seen this 15 page booklet. The
copy I have was created on a typewriter. There are differing dates on several
of the family members from what you have and what is listed in A CHRONOLOGY.
Your site has 6 children listed for Benjamin Durham.
