I can find no mention of Mr. Burns in my records. I got the impression that you were mainly interested in the Burns's family. If you are interested in the Estes family, I would be glad to help you. The book titled " The Estes Family of Old Clay County" would be a great starting point. My relatives are related to the Estes family of Clay County, Missouri. I have read that the book I just mentioned was a combination of two earlier books on the Estes family. I just found a article in a Kentucky genealogy book that gives the history of the Estes family before they came to America. The last person it mentions is Abraham Estes who was the first Estes to come to America.

How am I related to the Estes family? My ggggrand mother was Mary Ann Estes. She married Elisha Evans and they are buried in Bates County, Missouri. Her parents were Joel and Ann Harris Estes. Many of thier children and relatives moved to Clay County, Missouri around 1835. A few of their children were Joel, Peter, and Littleberry Estes. Ann Harris Estes's will was filed in Van Buren(now Lafayette County), Missouri. It mentioned her children and Elisha Evans. Elisha and William B. Evans are mentioned as early settlers of Lafayette County, Missouri.

There were several branches of the Estes family in the Clay County, Missouri area. You may be related to them. They moved several times. Around 1790's there were several Estes families in Henry and Patrick Counties in Virginia. By 1810, they were in the area around Madison County, Kentucky. Mary Ann Estes and Elisha Evans were married in Madison County, Kentucky in either 1812 or 1811. By the 1820's, they were in southeastern Missouri. In the 1830's they had moved to the Kansas City area. I can give you how the Estes family is related to Patrick Henry, Robert E. Lee and George Washington. It helps is you know your Estes relatives before I give you the information. You are talking about second cousins once removed etc.

Contact me at if you have any questions.
