    Help me find Richard's family

    I have not been having much luck locating the parents or siblings of Richard, my GGGrandfather. I do have what I hope could be pieces of this puzzle. The biggest one is that Ralph Crowley(Crawley), the surety for Richard and Nancy [ m.19DEC1833-Campbell Co.VA], married Lucy BURNETT on 13AUG1825.[Also in Campbell Co] Were Lucy and Richard related?

    In neighboring Bedford Co, within a year of the marriage of Richard Burnett and Nancy Saunders, Thomas Saunders married Sabre Burnett. Were either or both related?

    other Campbell Co. marriages (Burnett) about the same time

    • Samuel Alvis and Mary Burnett 10MAR1833
    • Creed Burnett and Mary Williams 30JAN1830
    • Littleberry Roark and Locky Burnett 21DEC1829
    • Ralph Crawley and Lucy Burnett 13AUG1825
