Queries: BURDITT , CRAIN , ROWE , THOMAS posted by Nan Pexa on Thursday, June 26, 1997 My ancestors were early settlers in Texas. Jesse F. BURDITT and His wife, Mildred CRAIN BURDITT arrived before 1837. 4 Jan - 8 Mar 1837 Jesse BURDITT carried the mail weekly from Nacogdoches via San Augustine, Gaines' Ferry to Ft. Jessup, LA (Jesse requested land script for amount due for services, signed Joseph ROWE (Joseph ROWE was another early settler along with his wife, Lavina BURDITT ROWE -- Joseph was Speaker of the House). Unconditional Certificate 47, Feb. 1, 1838, issued to Jesse BURDITT by San Augustine County Board of Land Commissionions, immigration date: 1833 - Amount Granted - 1 League and 1 Labor. Transfer by Jesse BURDITT of San Augustine County to Iredell D. THOMAS (967 acre survey) on Oct 7, 1841. Other members of the family to come from Bedford County, TN included: Ambrose and Polly (Mary) BURDITT CRAIN. Jesse and Mildred subsequently moved to Travis County, buried in Fiskville Cemetery. I have a great deal of information which I am happy to share. Also some interesting material about the Philosophical Society, etc. I may live in West Simsbury, CT but my heart's in Texas.
