(1996) In 1845, when David Burger was 18, his uncle Samuel Crawford [R511] died and left his Bath County farm to him and his brother William Crawford Burger [R500]. Nine years later David sold his interest in the property to his brother William (DB11-366), and about that time moved with his family to the Echo Valley farm on the Cowpasture River; this tract appears to the SW in Fig. R005b, partly cut off by the edge of the map. The 1860 census shows the Burger family living on that property. The number of their household in the census (340) is consecutive to that of Francis Marion Wood [R004], at the White House (339).

In the Civil War, David (35) enlisted 11/15/1862 as a Private in Company G of the 11th Virginia Cavalry. His brother Samuel Crawford Burger [see R505] served in the same Company. His record in the National Archives contains no more information than that.

David and Priscilla Burger are buried in a small family plot near the Echo Valley farm. With them is their unmarried son Joe Sam [R516], and their sons who died very young, Isaac Newton Burger and William Judson Burger.
