Notes for JOHN BURCHETT
   Early Times In Clinton Co, Vol I     by Jack Ferguson
Pages 251-257
John Burchett, a Revolutionary War veteran from Lunenburg county, Virginia, came to this county in 1807, settling in the northern part of the county. Mrs. Eva Conner, Albany, Kentucky, said that he lived below Seventy Six Falls, on the north side of Williams creek where it emptied into Indian creek. Born in 1761, in Lunenburg county, he entered Revolutionary service from that county in the spring of 1779 as a drafted militiaman for three months. Immediately after mustering in, his company was attacked by Col. Banastre Tarleton's cavalry and a severe skirmish took place. In 1780 he was again drafted for three months, He married in Lunenburg county(114) and had five children. Several years after the war he moved to Franklin county, Virginia; records in that county show that his land was located "twelve miles south of the courthouse," which would have been toward Henry county; apparently part at least was located in the latter county. Here he lived until moving to Clinton county.
An intriguing mystery surrounds John Burchett at this point, one that family researchers have as yet been unable to resolve. Apparently by the time he had moved to Franklin county, or soon after, he had left, or divorced, his first wife. in his will made in 1833 he mentions "Sally, who lives with me and has done (so) for many years past as my wife"; the wording would suggest a common-law relationship with in turn the implication that he had simply left his first wife, By Sally Burchett he had six more children. lcil Burchett was born in 1796; Burchett's first wife was still living at that time because the Henry county marriage records show that Keziah Burchett-not the father-gave consent for the marriage of her daughter Ailsey to Jacob Agee in 1800. There are several questions at this point for which we have no answers; it is possible that future research may be able to provide those answers.
John Burchett's second group of children came with him to Kentucky. lcil Burchett, the oldest, set" tied on a farm near Cartwright.
An older brother of John, William Burchett, born in 1754, also served in the Virginia Troops during the Revolution and later came to Clinton county. It is not known definitely where he settled but it was somewhere on Indian creek. Later land deeds place him in that locality.(117)

(114) His first wife was named Keziah; from the fact that one of her sons was named Bartlett it has been speculated that that was her maiden name.
(115) In his will John Burchett bequeathed to the children of his first wife "many years ago provided for" 'mv tract of land lying on Reed creek in Henry county, Virginia."
(116) Notably Mrs. Lloyd C. (Marilyn) McCluen, Rockwood, Tennessee, who has done voluminous research on the Burchett family.
 (117) John Burchett purchased 50 acres from John Cape on Indian creek July 29, 1829. He sold this tract to Hardin Williams September 9, 1837.

(118) A deed in Lunenburg county, Virginia, states that Young Burchett's land was patented by his tather. Benjamin Burchett However the identification of John and William Burchett as brothers of Young Burchett and sons of Benjamin Burchett is only ten-tative only circumstantial evidence supports that identification. The will of Benjamin Burchett, filed February 14, 1788 names William Burchett and "other children." It names as executors William Burchett, John Burchett, and William Scott It is probable that the latter two are the William and John Burchett who came to Clinton county
(119) The surname Bartlett is not definite; it is assumed from the fact that one son was so named.

(120) Bartlett Burchett did not come to Clinton county with his father but remained in Virginia with his mother Soon after his marriage he moved to Pulaski county, Kentucky, where his name appears on the tax lists from 1815 through 1833. About 1834 he moved to this county; the tax records show him with 40 acres on Indian creek in 1837. He remained on the tax lists up to 1857; this may be the date of his death His wife Nancy died prior to the 1860 Census.
Before 1820 Keziah Burchett with her daughter Hannah and her husband moved to Robertson county, Tennessee. Young Burchett is also listed on the Robertson county census for 1830. Jacob Agee, husband of Ailsey Burchett, probably settled in Wayne county, in or near the present Clinton county. He is listed on the 1820 Census as Jacob "Edge." He was on the Robertson county, Tennessee census for 1830.
(121) "John Burchett and Some of His Descendents" - Lucille Thomas Scott, 1980, National Printing, Inc., Melbourne, Florida, from which much of this Burchett data is derived, gives this date as August 16.
(122) William Burchett married Catherine Holsapple, daughter of Jacob and Nancy Holsapple, and moved to Missouri (123) Elizabeth
Miller is thought to have been a sister of Martin Miller.
(124) George W. Burchett moved to Missouri about 1858
