  • Note:
    James D., born about 1844 (age 16 on 1970 census)
    Died Jan. 4, 1918 (per death certificate)
    He was a Confederate soldier 15th Inf. Comp. A
    He was shown same age as his brother Thomas on 1850 and 1860 census.
    Were they twins???

    Married P. Bridgewater in Henrico Co., Va. on June 3 (looks like), 1868
    (per marriage record)
    She was born between 1840 and 1848 (age 22 shown on 1868 marriage record; age 22 on 1870 census; age 40 on 1880 census.)

    There are numerous discrepancies found in her first name and age. She has been found as Pressee, Pressea, Presora, Prescia, Pressey, Prussia and Prescott. It will probably never be known what it really was.

    James was shown as ?wd? on 1900 census. There is a death record for what looks like Prey Burley who died Apr. 30, 1885 in the Brookland Dist. of Henrico Co.; age 35, of lung disease. She is shown as ?widow,? but James D. Burley is shown as the person giving information.

    James Burley lived in the Brookland District of Henrico County. Henrico County deed records show that the land was sold by P. P. Lipscomb to H. V. Cox, Deed Book 248A, Pg. 121 and by H. V. Cox to William Byrd Press in 1960, Deed Book 882, Pg. 40. The address of property is shown as 2901 Byrd Hill Rd. Nothing has been found to connect H. V. Cox or P. P. Lipscomb to the Burley family.

    James and his wife (shown as Prussia) were buried in a cemetery on the property. A baby girl (possibly Juda born Dec. 23, 1880) and Jimmy Burley (probably James D., Jr.) and Rose Burley Coleman were also buried there. Their remains were removed from Brookland District Henrico County to Forest Lawn Cemetery, Lot 998, Section 3, on
    9-8-61. The remains of Nathaniel Bridgewater (father-in-law of James Burley) and Augustus Bridgewater (his son) were also moved. There are no markers for these graves.

    ========================

    child of James Burley died May 12, 1881
    (Lib. of Va. Bur. of Vital Statistics Reel #14, Deaths Henrico 1853-1884
    shows age 5; name and sex of child not shown; part of record may be missing)
    Could age really be 5 months??? Juda born Dec. 1880
    Could she baby girl Burley removed from family burial ground to Forest Lawn
    Cemetery in Sept. 1961??
