2287. Henry Burden

1Bob Baker Goff, Burden Family of White County,Tennessee and Their Bourden-Borden Ancestry, 1380-1980, pgs 20-21. "Henry Burden enlisted as Private in Company E, 1st Battalion, Tennessee Infantry, to serve as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War, on 4 Jan 1862. He enlisted at Sparta under Captain William Simpson. Pay vouchers during the war show he was at Dalton, Georgia and was captured at Fort Donelson. Injuries during the war caused his early death around 1870.

White County, Tennessee Deed Book S, p. 295, records, on January 3, 1856, that William Burden, Jr., deeded to Henry Burden, "nephew", a 64 acre tract of land on Cumberland Mountain.  On January 5, 1858, Joel Whitley sold land to Henry Burden, in District # 1, "near a house where Richard White formerly lived" (White Co., Tn.  Deed Book T).

Henry and Fannie (White) Burden are buried in the Old Bon Air Cemetery, at Bon Air, Tennessee.

Two records of the children of Henry and Fannie Burden are available.  A Log Book, handwritten by William Short (son-in-law of Henry and Fanny Burden) in 1887, is in the possession of Ernest Short; and an affidavit taken October 28, 1901, in Dallas, Texas, from Squire Burden, son of Henry and Fannie (White) Burden, is available in the Dallas, Texas courts.  The affidavit was taken in connection with the Peck vs. Borden, Borden vs. Peck case regarding the settling of the estate of "Fairfax Ben" Borden, who died in 1743 in Frederick County, Virginia.  The affidavit reads as follows:
      The State of Texas
      County of Dallas
Before me the undersigned authority this day personally appears Squire Borden and being by me duly sworn, upon his oath deposes and says, that Esquire Borden mentioned on page 25 of copy of Report of Com'r John M. Kinney Filed May 11, 1891 Commissioner office Staunton Virginia, in the case of Peck's Admr. vs Borden &c. and John Borden's Admr. vs. John Borden's Distriutees &c. was the Grand-father of Affiant.  That said Esquire Borden died intestate leaving the following issue - Martha Ann Borden who married Abna Smith.  David N. Borden who died without issue.  Henry Borden who died about 1868 near Sparta, Tenn. leaving issue as follows:
         John Borden who lives near Sparta, Tenn.
         George Borden "     "      "        "          "
         Squire Borden (the Affiant) Dallas, Texas.
         Martha Jane Borden who lives Sparta, Tenn.
         William Borden who lives Sparta Tenn.
         Sidney Borden    "      "    Sabatha, Texas
He farther says to the best of his knowledge his grand-father Esquire Bourden was the son of William Borden who was the son of Joseph Borden [this is incorrect, Joseph was his uncle, brother to John] the son of John Borden the son of "Fairfax Ben."
                                          Signed: Squire Borden
      Notary Public, N. G. Turney
      October 28, 1901

The Log Book, written by William Short, records Henry and Fannie Burden's birth dates, Fannie Burden's death date, and births of all of their children; this information is included in the record of their children below."
