Thomas Burgess, son of Reuben Burgess, of North Carolina, moved to Tennessee with his family in 1814. In 1830 he was drowned in the Cumberland River, and left a widow and eleven children, viz: Elizabeth, George W., Charles, Anderson, Margaret, Joel, Thomas, William, Polly, Hiram, and Nelly. Two of these, Anderson and Thomas, settled in Missouri. The latter was in Nathan Boone’s company of rangers during the Indian war, and also served in the Black Hawk war. He subsequently re-moved to Arkansas. Anderson married Elizabeth Whiteason, daughter of William Whiteason and Ann Wiser, and settled in Warren County in 1831. Their children were Malissa, Wayman L., Celina, Polly A., Elizabeth, Sarah, Dudley H., Valentine, and Adolphus.
