    I will have to look for the rest of the children. My papers are all mixed up and scattered. Hope that helps you. Thomas Durham and Elizabeth Chiles Johnson are buried on what used to be the family land in Dekalb Co TN. near Keltonburg. I have been there, but I do not know know who owns the land today. I did make some pictures. The house Thomas Durham built, parts were still standing in the lates 1970s.
