Marianne, I am searching for info on James
Burney and wife E(last name unknown)he and his family were on the 1860 Census for Yazoo
Co., Ms. Page 1023 - James Burney 48 M Mechanic-Born La.
E. Burney 45 F born Ms.
Margaret 20 F born Ms.
Nancy 17 F born Ms.
Susan 16 F born Ms.
Simon 13 M born Ms. (Simon Foster Burney)
Harvey 11 M born Ms. (Richard Harvey Burney)
Eliza 8 F born Ms.
Purdum 6 M born Ms.
John 4 M born Ms.
Mary 6/12 F born Ms.
In 1840 for Simpson Co., Ms., Pg. 223
James Burney, Wife, 1 son and 1 daughter are
listed. Since the son doesn't appear on the
1860 census, we do not know who he is. The
daughter would be Margaret Burney.
We do not know where James Burney & family
were before 1840, in 1850 and can't locate
them after the 1860 census with the Exception
of Simon and Harvey who came to Falls Co., Tx. married and raised their families and died there. We don't know who James' parents
were, anything about his wife and nothing on
the rest of the children. Since Yazoo County
Ms is the last place we can find them, I was
wondering if you could look in your books and
microfilm and see if you can come up with any
thing on this family for us. Any help at all
would be greately appreciated. Simon F. Burney is my husband GGrandfather.
