Hi, I am also trying to get information on a Burton Starks, In the 1870 census they have him living in Goochland, Byrd Virginia, but in the 1880 census, they have him living in Plantersville, Texas. Do you have a Leona, Mollie, James, Toney, Lock (changed name to Louis)

No. I don't have any information on the Starks family slaves. Just know they were in Kentucky.

I, too, am searching for info on William(Willie, Will) Starks. He said he was from Sardis, MS.

Did your Willliam Starks also live in Arkansas and married to Eleanor? Was he from DeSota County Mississippi? Was his middle name possibly Eldridge? I have a William Starks in my family tree from Mississippi and later moved to Arkansas.

I don't know much about him at all. He was born between 1860 and 1890. He was traveling with a woman into Lafayette County, MS when they met my ggrandmother. I believe the woman may have been his sister. They told my ggrandmother they were from Sardis, MS. In my research I have met many Starks', but no one knows a William or Will Starks. It is thought that he may have spent some time in jail although I cannot confirm this.

Thanks for your reply. No William Starks was never in jail. He was from Kentucky but moved to Illinois. He was married to Mattie Starks and they had 14 children.

I think your Will Strarks also shows up in my family tree as William E Strarks form Mississippi, Birth around 1878. In one of your earlier postings, you mentioned he possibly spent time in jail. My Uncle William Eldridge Starks was from Sardis, Ms and spent time in jail.
