I am going to have to change my mind on when and where my 6th great-grandfather Basil Burgess died. There are two possiblities on where he died. One in the Anne Arundel County/Prince George County area of Maryland in 1786 which I had previously believed (see April 23rd entry) and according to family tradition somewhere in the mountains of Western Maryland. This was while the whole family was migrating. I now believe it is the later. In 1780 Basil was still in Anne Arundel County (see picture). I recently came across records showing that his wife Anne was paying taxes in Fayette County, Pennsylvania in 1785. Basil must have died somewhere between 1780 and 1785.
