I have a book compiled by Frank and Leona Hickman in 1986. It is where I have acquired my Burgess family information. The main lines in the book are Windell, Burgess, Davis, Baker, and Hickman.  My direct line is highlighted. I am only including the basic line. There are far too many to list all the generations. If you see something familiar, I will be happy to look something up in the book. Good Luck!
