Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My line is through William Hoslin Burkes' first wife, Rebecca Jane Bates, and their daughter Mary Jane Burkes, b. April 20, 1842, MS, d. May 28, 1918, MS who married Richard Rudolphus Barnett December 8, 1860 in Leake Co., MS. If you do learn anything about his parents will you please post it on this site? I will do the same. Have you found him on the 1840 or 1850 MS or AL censuses? If so, where? Thank you.
