Yes, I have noticed the age differences in different documents. I am
certain that "Telda" is the mother of Edw (who was married to Rebecca who
was a POOR before marriage. She was b. in DE too but I have found her family
in MD too.
Thanks for the information. I'll get back with you later on some of
the data you sent. Very interesting family and every BURRIS that I knew was
very nice and friendly.
