    Notes 
    • According to descendent Ethan Fellows, there are two Nathan Gilberts who each married a Mary Burch, all sharing similar birth years, and all, at some point, residents of Hancock County, Georgia. Confusion ensues. One family settled in Taliaferro County, Georgia and raised a large family. Hunting for Bears (Georgia Marriages, 1699-1944 [database on-line]) gives a Hancock County marriage date for the Taliaferro Gilberts as 1831. (This is an assumption based on the reported name of "Mary P. Burch" by Hunting for Bears. Mary P. Gilbert is then identified as such in the Taliaferro census enumerations.) Brother Robert Simms Burch settled briefly in Taliaferro County where he practiced law with Alexander Stephens.

      The line reported here settled in south Georgia. Jones and Reynolds report a marriage date for these Gilberts as 27 Oct 1832. Additional confusion comes from Jones as she seems to report that Susan Simms Burch died shortly after the birth of Robert Simms Burch in 1814. This would not square with the 1815 date of birth for Mary Burch Gilbert of Randolph County. Jones, however, is not always accurate and a good deal of her information is, without doubt, anecdotal.
