67 living with their brother Henry 3 Burcher and his wife Dora Burcher in 1880 and were classified as his sisters. Both John 2 Burcher and his wife Sarah P. Burcher were deceased before the 1880 census. Their three youngest children were living with son Henry 3 Burcher and his wife Dora Burcher, They, too, lived in the Newport District of Warwick County. (Most of the other Burchers lived in the DENBIGN District of that county.) (1) Son 2 (name unknown) of William 1 Burcher and his wife Elizabeth Burcher, was born around 1818-1819. Evidently this child died for nothing in York or Warwick Counties available records is found relative to him. Conclusion: There are Burchers in Newport News (old Warwick County) who are not included in this manuscript because the needed evidence of kinship is lacking. Nor does this compiler know these people sufficiently well in order to write statements about them. They, themselves, may enjoy tracing their family genealogy. T.H.
