John Burns - Frankfort, Clinton County, Indiana

Classification: Query
Surnames: Burns, Thompson
I am looking for information on John Burns, and his wife; parents of Virginia A Burns (1843-????).

John Burns, his wife, and infant child died in Nov 1848 leaving Virginia Burns as his minor heir. Jonah Thompson was her guardian and administrator of John's estate. I have the Probate (& other court) files, but John's wife is never mentioned by name.

I have located a land patent for him in 1834 for 80 acres in Clinton, Indiana.
I also have him in the 1840 cenus for Clinton.
Males
10-15 = 1
30-40 = 1
Females
30-40 = 1
I have estimated his and his wife's births to be 1805 +/- 5yrs based on this census. (I have no information at all on the young boy in their houshold)

Without his wife's name, I'm completely stuck on this one. Any help at all would be Greatly appreciated.
