Information on Archibald Bourland

From "Annals of Bath County", by Oren F. Morton, pg. 189:'

James Bourland came from Pennsylvania in 1752, and was murdered nine years later. One Thomas Murray was committed for the crime. Archibald seems to be a brother. His wife was Jean Jackson. James left a son named Andrew, and there were probably other sons.
