Welcome to the WeRelate virtual genealogical community. Here we can learn from each other, work together and find what we need to make our research easier, more rewarding and fun.

You can create a free profile, Shared research pages and Personal research pages. Shared research pages are the next generation in message boards: they can be organized and edited. When you create a Shared research page title on your home page, the link will appear in red. Click on the red link, enter a message and save. (Creating a title for the page is not enough, your cousins can only search for pages with content.) Personal research pages are password protected wiki pages: visible to the community but editable only by you.

Person and Family pages are up and running. Take 10 minutes to see video tutorial/tour for people pages. You can view sample person and family pages (all you do is fill in the blanks), annotated pictures, and pedigrees with color coded migration maps. Check out a sneak preview of our new Family Tree Explorer, With this tool you can easily navigate and add pages to your famliy tree, view descendancy trees and ancestral trees for each person and view a sortable index of your tree.

If you are new to Wiki's, you may wish to check our many help and tutorial pages. Or, you can select edit on any page to see how the formatting commands are used. (You could click edit at the top of this page, for example.) You may also be interested in Recent Changes. Here you will see a list of all recent edits.

Nancy, wife of Levi Burcham [9 September 2008]


I know that many people list Levi's wife as Nancy Stoneman. I accepted that as fact when I found it stated in numerous places. However, a few years ago, Carolyn Spence posted the message below on the RootsWeb Burcham list and it was enough to convince me that Nancy was, in fact Nancy Denny, daughter of William Denny and Rebecah Hooper.

Levi and Nancy are both my third and fourth great grandparents since I descend from both Burden and John Easley. I also have some Stonemans in my line. Where do you fit? I assume that we're probably cousins. If you're interested, my website is at [1]

Hi all,

  I wanted to post this, as it is new documented info and will hopefully help strighten out the old genealogies still floating around.

According to the Stoneman family book by Carol Roller, " James & Sarah Stoneman and The Next Four Generations" page 2, James Stoneman also made bequests to his six children: Joshua Stoneman, Elizabeth Cain, Sarah Mooney, Hannah Davis, James Stoneman Jr. and John Stoneman. John was assigned the care of his mother during her widowhood. The eldest son Joshua was named Executor of the estate. It has been written by some that Nancy, wife of Levi Burcham, was the daughter of James & Sarah. Mrs. Levi Burcham was in fact, the daughter of William and Rebecca Hooper Denny. A document recorded in Surry County Courthouse in Dobson, NC in 1822 lists Levi Burcham and his wife, Nancy, among the heirs of William Denny. If James and Sarah Stoneman had more than the six children named in his Will of 1813, they died when young and there is no record of their names or their lifespans."

 There is also a male Burcham child, buried in the Denny Family cemetery in Surry Co.  These 2 things prove that Levi Burcham's wife was Nancy DENNY and not Nancy STONEMAN.  

Hope this helps ! My grandpa was a Stoneman, grandma a Burcham, so I too thought Nancy Burcham was a Stoneman for many years. She wasn't, and the correction isn't getting out fast enough.--Alanwood 14:45, 9 September 2008 (EDT)

Kenny L. Edwards [16 February 2012]

Hi Annette,

Great work you've done on the Edwards family. I am the great grandson of Kenny and have a couple photos you might be interested in. One is Kenny and his wife in later years. Another is a family portrait done around the early 1900's. It shows 8 of the children with my grandfather Ralph looking to be about 8-10 years old. My Aunt Virginia had the photos and has been able to label all the children in the shot.

I'll scan them and email them to you if you are interested.
