  • John's middle name comes to us through family sources, reported in several genealogies.  But I have seen no documentation.  No death or burial record has been found.

    A couple of undocumented genealogies report his wife was Vashti or Vasti Darby.  It is interesting that his wife had this well-known name from India.

    "John Honore Burel married Vasti Darby, born about 1808, and John died on September 16, 1844 in Abbeville, South Carolina. Burel researchers have written that Vasti Darby may have been the illegitimate daughter of Deborah Darby Burel's sister, who may have been renting a house owned by Samuel Jenkins, who lived nearby."
