I don't think Solomon Burriss is our missing sire of our William.

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.

Ah, I know that word- say it almost daily- so many "almosts". Hope you find him.
