My gg-grandfather was John Burns of Mt. Hope. John was born before 1810, died abt 1850. He married Jane Coleman (1811-1895) abt 1830. They had at least five children, one of which was my g-grandfather, William Lewis Burns (1837-1887). William was born in Mt. Hope and buried in Howells Cemetery. He married Susan Elizabeth Mapes in 1875.
I am try to find out who John Burns' parents were. I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may have information about John Burns. Thanks in advance for your help.
