I would be very interested in sharing information with anyone doing reseach on the HOLSTED family OF St Francois county. Lemuel HOLSTED was probably from NC. He was in the Nashville,Teneessee area by 1805. He married Nancy BURNHAM there in 1805. However he was in St Francois County by 1810. Nancy's parents, Isaac and Elizabeth BURNHAM were also in St Francois County by 1810. I believe the children of Lemuel and Nancy were Any, Emelia, Nancy Lucinda,Thomas,Lemuel Jr and Benjamin. Lemuel Jr (my ancestor) moved to Searcy County AR and married Maranda ADAMS. Benjamin moved to Louisana. Isaac's will was proved in St Francois County in 1829. Other children of Isaac BURNHAM listed in his will are Thomas, Benjamin, John, Isaac, Mary RHOADES and Betsey JONES. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who shares any of these family lines.
