I am looking for any and all information on Richard & Elizabeth Surginer. They are listed on the 1850 U.S. Census in Newton County. They had 11 children. Their children were: Wiley, William, Mary, Wright, Wesley, Martha, Jacob, Jelitha (Telitha?), Rachel and Pernecia "Lizzie". I know that Richard and Elizabeth were both born in Virginia. Some of the kids were born in Tennessee, some in Arkansas and some in Missouri. I have nothing documented that dates Richard Surginer back any further than the 1850 census. I'm at a brick wall. I appreciate any information that you may have.
