I am going through all the pages of the pension file, and found a 2 May 1851 affidavit by William Burriss, given in Stanly County, NC, in support of his mother, Judith's, request for a widows pension.
Our William was living in Hardin Co., TN with his second wife and children in 1850.
I know they traveled, but part of my William's daily life was lack of money.
That's at least 550 miles.
Ah well, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
