I have the family Bible in which Hattie Sparks Buckner Collins recorded her family history. Hattie was born 31 Jul 1860 in Anderson County the daughter of John Rose Buckner and Martha Ellen Hawkins Buckner. She died 16 Jun 1937 in Mount Eden, KY. I am attempting to confirm the names Martha Ellen Hawkins Buckner's parents. Hattie records that Martha Ellen was born 31 Dec.1837, and died 15 Nov 1922 in Mount Eden, KY. Martha Ellen's death certificate says (on information supposedly furnished by her daughter Annie Rose Buckner Hedden) that she was the daughter of James M. Hawkins and Sallie Buntain. It's the name Buntain that has me confused because it does not match any tree posted in Ancestry that I can find. According to Hattie's Bible record, "Martha Ellen Buckner's half sister was Vinie McMichael Williams" and "Martha E. Buckner's half-brother was John McMichael. John McMichael married Frances Spoonamore." If the death certificate is correct and the information from Hattie's Bible is also correct, was Martha Ellen Hawkins Buckner's mother Sally Buntain who first married a McMichael and produced at least two McMichael children? Any guidance from you McMichaels would be appreciated.
