      I've not found one doc that makes Dorothy wife of John Lanham, Sr a Burch, that is speculation from old research. I believe the following Charles Co. land record is proof that Dorothy wife of John Lanham Sr is the dau of Ralph Shaw. As the other men that Ralph Shaw Sr makes the agreement w/are married to Ralph's daus. So John Lanham would have been married to one also.
