There was a family of Burris/Burriss in Smithville now Southport NC. A number of them are buried in the Old Cemetery. I find a Thomas Gray Burris and a Frederick Thomas Burriss but no Tandy. Some of the family may have moved to Wilmington NC

I have a Uncle named Thomas Linwood Burriss,from what I understand his first name was taken from a relative.
I maybe wrong but from what I've heard there were more Burriss' surnames in Brunswick than the spelling "Burris"
Hopes this helps
