Title: BURBRIDGE, Thomas Big or Little Miami River d. sometime around 1821 or after
Post by: tobiano on July 12, 2010, 11:12:27 PM
Hello, All...

After 20+ yrs of searching, I still have no answers.

My Thomas Burbridge reportedly had family in Ohio.  All I know from the stories and records is that the place was near what was called the Big Miami River or the Little Miami River. At one time I learned the real names of these two rivers and the nicknames the old timers used made sense, but I cannot recall the proper names now.

Anyway, Thomas reportedly died there after 1820, but I have no idea how to find any records of that.  I'm desperate to find him and any information on his life...marriage record to Christina Ory, and of his father Ezekiel.  Thomas was born in the mid 1700s....1748 or so in possibly VA.

Thank you!

The proper names are the Great Miami River (runs through Dayton and empties into the Ohio River) and the Little Miami River - just to the east of the Great Miami.
