Pleasant C. T. BURTON, my gg grandfather, claimed on
his Confederate soldier pension application that he was born in Baker Co,
GA in 1834. His father was Tannington BURTON. In 1821, Tannington BURTON won
a land lot, while living in Burke Co, GA. In 1825, while still living in
Burke Co, GA, Tannington BURTON sold the land lot. Somehow, the BURTONs are
in Baker Co, GA in 1834, where Pleasant was born. The next thing I find is
Pleasant C. T. BURTON in the 1850 census of Montgomery Co, GA, as a 16 year
old farm laborer for John and Mary FERGUSON. Per Montgomery Co, GA probate
records, Tannington BURTON died before January 1852 and his estate left $83.00
to a Mr. John PHILLIPS, who had been appointed guardian of P. C. T. BURTON
in May 1851. I do not know where Tannington BURTON died or where his estate
was probated. In March of 1853, Pleasant C. T. BURTON married Susan, the
youngest daughter of John and Mary FERGUSON. QUESTION: Who is Tannington
BURTON related to and what are the facts concerning his travels from Burke
Co to Baker Co and then his son to return to Montgomery Co? Is there any
connection to the William H. FERGUSON (b. 1800-1810), who was an official
of Baker Co, GA and was killed by Indians on 12/16/1835. Please let me hear
from you if you have any information that relates to the BURTONs or FERGUSONs.
