Trying to find out if James C. Burnett on VA 1850 census is my great grandfather James C. Burnett on MS 1860 census. He was not listed with this family in VA 1860 census nor was his father Thomas Burnett. My great grandfather's first appearance in MS was 1856 when he married first wife Francis (Franny) Walley in Perry County, Mississippi. The initial "C" was not used until 1882 when he married second wife Lou Kirkland, Wayne County, MS. Anyone have information in family bible, etc. First wife Franny was killed in Alabama approx. 1877-78. He is listed on 1860 MS census as being born in VA about 1835.If this is his family in VA, James' mother, wife and sister were named Francis. The 1860 VA census for this family shows James C. and father, Thomas absent. The 1860 MS census for my great grandparents show, James Burnett, Francis (Franny) Burnett married 1856, with 2 small children. Have no records of James Burnett in Mississippi, or surrounding states before the census of 1860. 1870 MS census, Greene County, has James & Francis (Franny) Burnett there with more children. I need a connection from Virginia to Mississippi in order to continue my search. Thank you D. Adams
