Hi! I'm not sure where you fit into the family, but I want to give you some info for your records.
John Durham is an American Revolutionary War patriot (Pension #542677). John Durham was born 13 Apr 1760 in NC, served as a musician with the rank of Private in the 10th Regiment of NC. He married Mary Ann Payne, daughter of Reuben Payne. She was born on 05 Nov 1771 in Maryland. John died at New Holland, Fayette, OH on 13 Jun 1852 and Mary Ann died there on 11 Jul 1846. They were married on 22 Jan 1788. They had a daughter Catharine who married Jacob Huff, from Morgan Co., WV, and Ralph Durham (in your tree) born 23 May 1794 in VA, died 18 Jan 1889. He married Elizabeth Elliott on 18 May 1813. She was born 23 June 1793 and died 10 Aug 1880. They had a child: John W. Durham born 03 Jan 1821, died 25 Dec. 1924.
