BURNS, ELLET, ELLIOTT, POE posted by CJ Nichols on Thursday, March 11, 1999

Looking for any information : John W. BURNS who married Mary ELLIOTT (ELLET) in Davies Co. on 25 Dec 1842. They had their first child in Dallas Texas in 1844 then were back in Missiour and specifically Davies Co again in 1852. After that we have lost them. Other family members that tie in would be an Isaac BURNS (perhaps father or older brother) and a brother Jeremiah BURNS. Mary had a sister named Susan that married a John POE.
