Looking for Ancestors
I am looking for facts pertaining to who founded Burtonsville and when. I am working on my Burton Family Tree and suspect my Isaac Burton (born in 1788 and married in 1812 in Burtonsville) may have ancestors from Burtonsville, Maryland. Any leads to help me obtain this information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
(Mrs.) Barbara M. Murphy
