No they aren't familiar to me. I have that in the book
Citizens and Immigrants-South Carolina 1768 page 30-31
"These persons were Protestants who had arrived in South Carolina from Ireland in the Snow GREGG, John Monford, Master. The Public Treasurer was ordered to pay to Messrs. Torrans and Pouag 4 and 2 Shillings sterling, to pay the immigrants passage and the bounty of 20 shillings was paid to the individuals.

Listed was : Patrick Burns age 24

There was a Patrick Burns who had 100 acres in Craven Co., on the south side of Broad River bounding NW Pierce Nolan. This was a survey certified 4-5-1768 . Quit rent
begins in 10 years. Recorded 10-14-1768 Daniel Johnston, Wm. Gist Deputy Surveyor.

Apt. 12, Pack 402
admin of est. of Patrick Burns-- Jacob Gibson Senr. applied for administration in right of his wife, Sarah late widow of Deceased. Dated 24 October 1785

Jacob Gibson was later on 23 Nov. 1785 the admr. of the goods and chattels of Patrick Burns, deceased. Total Evaluation L.34.4.4. on the above date.
daniel Wooten, Richard Yarbrough, and James Andrews viewed and approved the estate.

On 6 Jan. 1794, William Burns received monies for considerations from Jacob Gibson (Jr.) and witnesses were James G . Napper (Napier), James Burns. (Book I, page 9).

This is only references I have regarding the Burns family.

When Jacob Sr. wrote his will 8 Decr. 1784 he had already married the widow Burns as she is named in his will as his wife, Sarah and he left her his plantation, tools, sheep and geese, and also her original stock of cattle and mare and saddled provided she not sell or give nor dispose of anything off the Plantation without the advices of his Ececutors and that the privelieges continue during her life and widowhood, which time shall allow her to give to her children (more than one) the value of her stock that she first brought to me with her household goods and furniture etc. I have the returns of most of their children (Judith Napier-Jacob Gibson Sr.) estate and no mention of the Burns property after that.

I know that Thomas Bamar, Jesse Bamar and an Elizabeth Kennerly (who later moved to Richland Co., SC and became a McLemore) were witnesses to his will-I would think one would have been protectant of her share of the property/etc. but then know early on in Fairfield co., SC records he (Jacob) is often seen in company with a John Kennerly, although the connection I have never ever found.
