It has been said that William Burns, Sr. married Nancy Chandler first and married a Sarah Bishop second; have also heard that he married a Lucy Angell (I have not been able to verify the marriage to Lucy Angell; Leon Morris' book says he married Lucy Angell.)

Perhaps this information may be of use for some.
