WILLIAM 2 BURCHER, oldest son of William 1 and Elizabeth Burcher, was 60 years old when the 1860 census was taken. So, he was born 1799-1800. He married Elizabeth ___ by 1835. She was also cammed [called] "Betsy W." and she was born 1810-1812 according to the census. In 1870 he was deceased, but "Betsy" was 60 years old and son William, age 22 years, was living at that home. (Family #44) This family lived evidently near the York County lined in the area between present day Denbigh Boulevard and Fort Eustis Boulevard. Their neighbors were: family #41 John Burcher; #42 John Fox; #45 Edmund Powell; #46 Fred Burcher; #47 James G. Burcher; #48 Lewis Burcher; #49 James and Lucy Powell etc. The proximity of these families tends to tie them together.
