LANE, Mary
I am searching for information on the marrieage of Valentine BURGET(T)
and Mary LANE.
In the "History of Brown County, Ohio" by Beers & Co 1883 it states that
"Samuel
BURGETT, Georgetown, is one of the oldest and most prominent citizens of
Pleasant Twp.,
and Brown Co. He was born on the farm where he now resides Jan. 25,
1812. His parents
were Valentine and Mary (LANE) BURGETT, natives of Virginia, the former
of German and
the latter of English parentage."

>From "Historical Collections of Brown County, Ohio" by Carl N. Thompson:
Pleasant
Township: Among the early settlers in this township were Jacob Burgett,
Aaron Burgett,
Valentine Burgett..." The Index to Rev War Soldiers: "Valentine Burgett
- Buried in Pisgah
Ridge Cemetery. All that is available."

Any information that can be found on these people would be greatly
appreciated. I know that
Aaron Burgett was born around 1780.
Thank you,

Lisa Alexander

Searching for information on John Burget who was in Pickaway
     County at least by 1810. Need to know if he had children George
     BURGET, born 1805 in Ohio; Cassa BURGET, born 1806 in Ohio; and
     Sarah BURGET, born 1807 in Ohio. I believe there may have been a
     connection between my Logan County BURGETS of the 1830's and
     the John Burget in Pickaway County.

     John BURNS immigrated from Scotland to NYC to Circleville prior
     to 1836. In 1843 both he and his wife died. His son, also named
John,
     was taken in by a neighbor Joseph BURGETT. I am looking for
     information on the BURGET family and also trying to locate the
     gravesites of both John BURNS and his wife.

magriff@bigfoot.com , on Tuesday, December 17, 1996

     I am searching for ancestral & historical information or any
     descendants in common with: STUCKEY, Peter, b.1836, probably
     Germ/SZ/Fr border near Rhine. Probable parents: Jacob (or Peter)
     STUCKEY & Catherine BARTH, unknown whether parents came to
     U.S., but their son Peter allegedly immigrated to U.S. in 1843.
Peter
     had sibs: Catherine, b. 1827, Nicholas, b. 1840, Sophia, b. 1841.
     Nicholas migrated to and died in Lancaster, OH. Peter married Julia

     Ann BURGETT @ Circleville, Pickaway Co, OH 9-30-1858, then
     moved to Piatt Co.,IL. Sophia also moved to Piatt Co., IL. I cannot

     find definite parents of these STUCKEY children nor parents of
     Julia Ann BURGETT, although I believe Julia had one sister named
     Sarah who married a Mr. Duvall - probably Andrew although that too
     is uncertain.

 Brough of Burgettstown.---At a meeting of the citizens of
            Burgettstown, held pursuant to notice a the town hall in March, 1877, for the
            purpose of taking measures for the erection of the borough of Burgettstown,
            to be composed of Old Burgettstown and Cardville, D. S. Walker was
            chosen chairman and F. McFarland secretary. After discussion, Findley
            Patterson, J. L. Patterson, and M. W. Murray were appointed a committee
            to take the initiatory steps to procure the incorporation of the proposed
            borough. This committee never reported, no meeting was called, and the
            subject was held in abeyance till July, 1880, when another meeting was
            called, and J. L. Patterson, J. L. Proudfit, S. J. Ghrist, William Melvin, J.P.
            Donnan, H. B. McMurray, and M. R. Allen were appointed to secure a
            survey and present the proper petition to the court. This committee
            performed their duties, and on the 8th December, 1880, gave notice that
            application would be made to the Court of Quarter Sessions of Washington
            County at the January term, 1881, "to incorporate the village of
            Burgettstown, including that portion thereof which lies at and around
            Burgettstown Station." The grand jury passed favorably upon the petition on
            the 12th January, 1881, and the court confirmed the action on the 23d of
            March, following, and further provided that a special election be held at the
            town hall, April 5, 1881, for the election of borough officers, at which time
            the following were elected: Burgess, C. M. Elder; Councilmen, Dr., W. W.
            Riddle, B. F. McClure, S. J. Ghrist, W. H. Witherspoon, J. P. Donnan, and
            W. S. Fulton; School Directors, R. T. C. Stephenson, W. P. Vance, William
            Melvin, James Carnahan, and William Blair; Auditor, T. L. McClelland;
            Assessor and Constable, M. W. McMurry. Upon the organization of the
           Council, J. P. Donnan was chosen president, and the following appointments
            were made: M. R. Allen, clerk; J. L. Patterson, treasurer; John Hemphill,
            street commissioner; M. W. McMurry, collector.

                  Physicians.---The first practitioner of medicine in this section of the
            county of whom anything is known was Dr. Ebenezer Jennings, a son of the
            Rev. Jacob Jennings. He was a descendant of the Pilgrims, but a native of
            New Jersey, where his father lived and practiced as a physician until he was
            licensed by the Reformed Dutch Church and received by the Presbytery of
            Redstone April 17, 1792, at which time the Rev. Jacob Jennings removed to
            Dunlap's Creek, Fayette Co.: his two sons, Obadiah Jennings (later know
            both as lawyer and divine) and Ebenezer, the one above mentioned, coming
            with him. He studied and practiced medicine in the East, and soon after
            coming to this county settled in Smith township, and resided at the house of
            Judge James Edgar for some years. Upon his marriage he purchased a small
            farm about two miles east of Burgettstown, from where he continued to
            practice till his death. He was elected a member of the General Assembly in
            1806-7, and during the first year of his residence at the capital he became
            interested in the treatise of Dr. Jenner on vaccination, and at the close of the
            term visited Philadelphia, obtained some virus, and on his return vaccinated
            his own children and others. On his return to the Legislature the next session,
            but arduous labors, he procured the passage of a bill providing for the
            vaccination of the poor. His health became impaired by his exertions, and
            although renominated for another term he declined, and on the 21st
            November, 1808, he died, aged thirty-three years, beloved and respected
            by all. He left property consisting of five hundred acres of land in Beaver
            County, eighty acres of land where he resided until a short time before his
            death, and one house and two lots in Burgettstown. His executors were
            Thomas Smith, Robert Bowland, and Obadiah Jennings. The property was
            left in trust with them for his three children, ---Maria, Samuel C., and Jacob,
            and provided for their education; and in case one or both of the sons desired
            a classical education, a sufficient amount to meet the circumstances was to
            be taken from the estate. Rev. Samuel C. Jennings, one of the sons, is now
            pastor of a Presbyterian Church in Allegheny County.

                  Dr. Thomas Hersey advertised in the Reporter (Washington) under date
            Feb. 10, 1812, that he "offers his professional services to the people of
            Burgettstown." He delivered an oration on the 4th of July the same year, at a
            celebration held in the town. How long he remained there is not known.

                  Dr. Samuel J. Perry was a resident of the town before 1821, as in that
            year he was postmaster, but little is known of him. At one time he lived
            where Dr. Harper lives, and later where Dr. Donnan resides. He died about
            1830.

                  Dr. Stephen Smith came to Burgettstown about 1826. He succeeded
            David Bruce as postmaster in 1830. About 1832 he went to Florence,
            remained there till about 1840, and moved to Virginia. As a physician he was
            well and favorably known, and had a wide practice in the vicinity.

                  Dr. Mossman was a resident of the town five years prior to 1837, and in
            the spring of that year removed to Peoria, Ill., where he lived for several
            years.

                  Dr. Joseph Campbell kept a drug-store in the old Bruce House, now
            William Melvin.

                  Dr. William Donnan, a son of the Rev. Alexander Donnan, born in
            Scotland, came to this country with his father in 1818, and in the next year
            settled at Hickory. He studied medicine with Dr. Stephenson in Canonsburg,
            and Dr. Hewitson, of St. Clairsville, Ohio; attended lectures at Jefferson
            Medical College, under Pros. McClelland, Pattison, Woods, and Reeves;
            commenced practice at Burgettstown in 1837, and has been actively
            engaged in the duties of his profession here from that time to the present.

                  Dr. T. W. Bradley studied medicine with Dr. P. H. McCullough, of
            Rumley, Ohio; graduated at Sterling Medical College, Ohio, in 1851;
            commenced practice in Florence in 1844, before graduation; came to
            Burgettstown in 1856, and has been in practice here from that time until the
            present.

                  Dr. G. W. Bell studied medicine with Dr. W. L. Wilson, of Beallsville;
            attended lectures in 1853 at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia;
            graduated in March, 1858; commenced practice in Burgettstown in 1854,
            and has remained there in practice to the present.

                  Dr. W. V. Riddle studied medicine with Dr. T. W. Bradley. In the winter
            of 1863-64 he attended lectures at Ann Arbor, Mich.; commenced practice
            at Candor in 1864; remained there about five years, and in 1869 removed to
            Pittsburgh. About one year later he removed to Burgettstown, where he
            commenced practice April 1, 1870, and has since remained there as one of
            the physicians of the town.

                  Dr. W. T. Miller was a medical student with Dr. M. R. Banks, at
            Livermore, Westmoreland Co., Pa., graduated at Cleveland, Ohio, in 1881,
            and in that year commence

Mahala is supposed to have been mother of Valentine BURGETT, Jr. b.  8,
June
1773.  He, Val, Jr appears to have been 2nd child of Val, Sr & Mahala.
This data from a bible record found by a Robert Laxton in library in
Memphis.
It does not say TN.  Robert said,   "I didn't have much time to copy down
references....what a shame".

The end result of where Mahala came from,  all indications point to her
with
Val, Sr in VA, when their children were born.  My Aaron BURGETT b.1782
had VA
on his census sheets.

By the way if anyone checks those Family Tree KY marriage disks, I
believe
there is an error in their record of Valentine BARGET (another spelling)
and
Mary LANE.  The correct year is 1799.

Genny



GINNY, Thanks - This Bible is In a Library and someone copied from same
?- I
believe there is only one Memphis = TN
So we need the Name of the Library =
Land records in New Hampshire Co, VA gives Val's wife as Magdalena in at
least
two different entries and another one for Mary?
However we do have a MAHALA BURGETT married 1824 (1850 is corrected later by GENNY,  msh)   Brown Co to Robert L STEPHENSON.
Maybe married again?
Where they members of the church? were their names mentioned? Or perhaps
you
already told me what - marie, iowa

WASH CO PA
341. William Thompson. Nov. 29, 1811
     Filed Feb. 25, 1812
     Wife--Jean. Children: Robert, Jean, Sarah, wife of Mr. Burget,
     Isabella Montgomery, Mary Boils, Thomas, Ann.
     John Riddle & son Robert Thompson appointed.
     Account--- T-29-1816.
=========
1833 WASH REPORTER
The account of JESSE SPENCER, ADM. of the estate of DR. BOSTON G.
     BURGET, DEC.
==========
WASH CO, PA
Our ancestors were thrifty people.  They owned a large body of land at
     the time of the death of Thomas Bigger.  Their children were
     industrious.  Saving their money, they invested it in land.  They
not
     only accumulated much land in western Pennsylvania, but some of
them
     invested in land in Ohio, which was then regarded as the far west.
The
     writer has a deed signed by James Monroe, President of the United
     States, and dated September 27th, 1819, which conveyed the title to
160
     acres of land in Ohio to Thomas Bigger, one of the three who lived
in
     our family, but Aunt Ann and Aunt Betsy their portion of their
father's
     estate, coming to them at his death in Ohio lands.  This they sold
to a
     man named Markle, and the writer distinctly remembers his being
present
     when the deeds were executed for this land.

             All of the children of Thomas Bigger and Elizabeth grew up
in the home,
     with a single exception.  The son Thomas, familiarly known as Uncle

     Tommy in his old age, was indentured by his father to a man named
     Burgett, who conducted a tannery on the site of the town of
     Burgettstown, which derives its name from this man.  He served
Burgett
     seven years in learning his trade.  When this service was completed
he
     went over the mountain to Chambersburg, where his Uncles James and
John
     lived, and worked for some time as a journeyman tanner.  He then
     returned home and built a tannery on his own, which was located
just
     west and near to the land, which belonged to the brother Andrew.
For
     years he carried on a flourishing business the buildings, which
were
     three in number, were still standing in the boyhood days of the
writer,
     but have long since disappeared.  All of the sons were farmers.

             Of these children of Thomas and Elizabeth Bigger, only two
of them, the
     oldest, Matthew, and the youngest, Elizabeth, were able to
celebrate the
     anniversaries of their births.  A record was kept of the month and
year
     when the others were born, but not the day of month.  Thomas Bigger

     himself, in an account book, set down the day of the month and year
when
     his oldest son Matthew was born, but the record goes no further.
The
     writer has this old account book, which contains the following
item:

             "Thomas Bigger.  I was born in Ireland in the County of
Antrim.  I was
     married the 23rd day of May 1773, and sailed from Londonderry the
9th
     day of August 1773, and landed in Baltimore the 16th day of October

     1773.  My son Matthew was born the 9th day of March 1774."  Amid
the
     excitements and labors of those early days, it is evident little
