U.S. States: North Carolina: Burke County
Well I descend from two Burns lines,and wonder if perhaps the lines were connected!!!!
My ancestor was William John Burnes born in 1796- wonder if he was a brother of your Phillip?- and also I descend from a William Burns who was born about 1834-could he have been the one who was the executor of the will you mentioned?
I've always thought my great grandfather William Burns was somehow related-maybe a nephew -of my ancestor William John Burnes.
This is exciting!! Hope we can connect!!!And you mention Missouri.That's where my ancestors lived!!!!!!
