I recall your mentioning that Jacob Durden could be listed under Burden ...
so would you look in
#115 Roster of Soldiers from N.C. to see if there is Jacob BURDEN?
You once wrote that in #541 there was a genealogical chart of DARDEN
starting in the 1700's.
Would you see if there is mention of Jacob Darden, B 1755 N.C. and D 1855

Thank you in advance,

Here's a wildcard suggestion for this search. Since it seems most possible
spellings beginning with D have been tried, what about looking for spellings
beginning with B?
Amma Bass CARROLL was born in Sampson County, NC in 1846. He married Martha
Matilda BARDEN who was born in 1849. She was said to be the daughter of
John BARDEN. I don't know where the BARDEN family had lived or have any
knowledge of the family prior to this marriage in 1866.
I think one reason so many of us have brick walls is because these early
rural settlers still traveling to find unsettled land were so busy making a
living and having children they did not have time to learn to read and write
their own names. Also, I suspect there were a lot of untreated ear
infections that made it difficult for adults to distinguish the difference
in the sounds f words like Darden and Barden.
Just a thought!
