Descendants of
Peter Burbee, Sr. (c1729-1778)
And Others Who Share These Surnames
by Robert Dean Lawrence









    Eight years of intense research has culminated in this 8 1/2" X 11", 500 page, quality hard cover book which has been published on acid-free paper. This is not just a directory but a factual genealogy gleaned from 914 separate and notated sources. These three surnames are commonly found interchangeably among branches of these families making it necessary to include all three in the same work. While all who are written about in this book are not necessarily related to each other, those who are have been grouped together with the others known to be related to them. Peter Burbee, Sr. was at Valley Forge with George Washington and later died while fighting for independance in the American Revolutionary War. His descendants in New England and the northwestern states either retained the surname Burbee, or changed it to Burby, while othes who moved to Kentucky and Ohio became Burbas. Approximately 2,000 of Peter's descendants and their spouses have been chronicled in this major genealogical work. As extensive as that is, only about half of the book is devoted to Peter and his descendants. More than a thousand others with these surnames and their families have been included explaining who they were and their known genealogical relationships to each other. In all, more than 13,000 names appear in the index. A limited run of only 531 copies of this book were published with each copy being individually numbered.

The Graying of my Guardian Angel
by Robert Dean Lawrence






    From time to time, I have become involved in conversations which have turned to some of the close calls with serious injury and even death that most of us have experenced in our life times. When all have taken their turns and have told their own stories, it always seems that I still have several more instances left that I could relate. More than once, listeners have marveled at the fact that I appear to have had a charmed life and have suggested that I should write a book about those experiences. This work is the result of those suggestions and contains 27 of those short stories.
