Sorry for the delayed response. Isham Burks, Born 1761 was never in KY that
I can find. Isham Burks, Born 1759, served in Rev. War in VA was in Ky and
then moved through TN to AL and then to MO. He died in Boone County, MO.

We believe that Isham born 1759 was Isham's (born 1761)uncle (John's
brother).

Our Isham, born 1761, had Rev. War service in GA. He submitted claim for
pension in 1834 in McNairy County, TN. He was in Spartanburg District SC in
1800, Pendleton District SC in 1810, in Lincoln County, TN in 1820 and in
McNairy County, TN in 1830. My greatgreat grandfather Thomas J. Burks born
in 1812 in SC lived most of his life in McNairy county, TN.

There were other Thomas J. Burks (I assume the J is for Jefferson). James
Lyon Burks (believed to be brother to Isham) had a son named Thomas Jefferson

Burks. I believe he went from Scott County, MS to Texas. There appears to
be a lot of information on him on the internet.

I believe Isham, Nicholas, and John Burks were all at Fort Jefferson around
l780 and stayed until it was abandoned. Not sure how long that was. John
Burks, my ancestor came to Louisville immediately afterward (on foot he said
in a deposition later given about a court case in Bullitt Co Ky about a
23,000 land grant of John Larue and a 760 acre cross claim by Christian
Shively (both old settlers names and Rev War soldiers). I believe I have
found somewhere that Isham was in Kentucky Jefferson County but only one
record as I recall and that could be "just moving through going home as he
was from farther South.
In Louisville was a Samuel Burks who had a business arrangment on one
occasion with John Burks (a Hunting expedition provisioning in which they had
not paid the merchant his bill). There is no proof of relationship--only
proximity and location. I believe all (4) got land grants for Virginia
Service (Kentucky was Virginia before l793) of 3 years in the Rev War.
With things looking so similar I assumed there might be a sibling
relationship between two or more of the 4. I have been unable to locate
ancestry for John or Samuel who seemed to have been born 1740-50 era. Not
sure about Nicholas and Isham but probably the same as they were at Fort
Jefferson and that would make them l760 at the latest, I would think.
I do have some info on James Lyon Burks and a Davis family he was related to
and an Indian connection with that group. See the outline below. I believe he
is in Gen 4 or 5 and seems to be a generation younger than Isham but that may
be another Isham.
Let me know what you think about this. As always glad to have corrections as
this is relatively unverified data in the outline.
