Rufus’ grandparents were John Burgin and Elizabeth Mann – my 5th great-grandparents.

Tonia,
I am also a descendant of the Burgins from Old Fort. My great grandmother was the daughter of Augustus Burgin. Right at this moment I don’t remember the rest of the lineage. I have it at home though. It was interesting strolling through your website.
