Notes for Benjamin Bourland:
Information from an unpublished draft manuscript titled NORTHEAST TEXAS PIONEERS 1800-1877, copyright by Skipper Steely, 1989, Paris, Texas: A part of his family came from Kentucky to Texas. No clear reason for the removal of the family to northeast Texas is construed except that Bourland was born near many future Red River pioneers, and some friends of his from Tennessee moved to the Texas region, including the Stout family. ^Born in Wilkes County, NC, Bourland had 19 children by two wives, apparently 13 by his first wife named Nancy, whom he married in about 1798. The family moved through Tennessee to Hopkins County, Kentucky by 1803. Benjamin Sr. married second to a lady names Martha about 1828. Benjamin probably came to Texas in about 1839 or 1840, after his sons James, William Howard, and Benjamin Jr. arrived. His last child born in Kentucky was Martha in 1839. ^Benjamin is buried in a cemetery south of the north Sulphur Fork on the Lamar-Fannin County line.
