Abraham and Mary Durling are my GGGG- grandparents.

My Burroughs line goes like this....

#1- Wesley Burroughs b. bet 1838 - 1945 in NJ d. Bet 1889-1891 in Trenton, NJ
md Mary Durling b. 10/71841 in Harlingen, Somerset Co NJ d. 9/10/1908 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ
Jane b. 1865 in NJ (see mother's obit below for married names. I don't know which one is which?)
Ellen b. 1869 in NJ (see mother's obit below for married names. I don't know which one is which?)
George b. 1871 in NJ d. 1938 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ md (abt 1896) Kate ? b. 6/1875 in PA
David b. 1875 in NJ d. 1937 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ * aka Abram D. Burroughs
Willie b. 1877 in NJ d. 1895 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ
Robert b. 1873 in NJ d. 1918 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ
H. B. b. 1883 in NJ d. 1903 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ *aka Bertram Burroughs

My line continues with #2- Abram D. Burroughs b. 1875 d. 1937.
He married (8/1897) Annie Loretta Quinlisk/Quinn b. 1875 d. 1860.
Their children: Clearance Burroughs, Jennie (Burroughs) Kuhns, Mary Ann (Borroughs) Bourne, Loretta (Borroughs) Kottke, Abraham Burroughs and Margaret (Borroughs) Shible.

Everyone besides Wesley, Jane, Ellen, Clearance and Loretta are buried in Riverview Cemetery, Mercer Co., NJ.

Also, I believe but haven't found proof yet that Wesley's parent's may be Samuel and Emily Burroughs of Hopewell Twp., Mercer Co., NJ.

My line then continues with Loretta Borroughs to Albert A. Kottke
Then Loretta Kottke to Tito Amati
Finally Loretta Amati to Richard Brickner- My Parents
