Henry Wilbur Simons

RESEARCHER: Rejeana Zinn Griffin [zinngrif@yahoo.com] sent informtion to T.Mason in Aug2001. Personal visits & correspondence with June Rose Simons.


John Burden

In her biography, Nancy Mahulda Burden, the wife of Joseph, the son of John Burden, mentions taking care of nine orphaned children who were the children of her husband's three brothers and wives who had died and left them. (More information about him is found in the notes and source information of John's wife, Mary.)

At the end of the above mentioned biographical sketch someone has handwritten that the parents of Joseph Burden, were Will Burden and Polie Jones. This relationship is unproven and seems to be incorrect.  See information listed under the source actual text of William Burden or Borden (married to Eleanor Hudson or Hutson) for more evidence of Joseph's correct parents. The brother of this John was named William. The brother of John did not marry Polly Jones and was a minister and was childless.

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 22 Jun 2002 by Sally Brown Taylor "1833 Greene Co tax list incl a John Burden"

"28 Nov 1848 Estate of John Burden...LA issued to John Young, Ozark Co {SA 63} 4 Feb 1850 Admin Sale on estate will be held in Ozark Co {SA 82} from Taney Co, MO 1840, by Nancie Todd Weber p.26".


Mary Madison

Mary Birden is next door to her daughter-in-law Nancy in the 1850 census. This is noteworthy for several reasons. First it provides evidence that she had a son named John Jr. Secondly, the children of this son, John and his wife Nancy wind up being taken care of as orphans by Nancy Mahulda Burden, the wife of Mary's son Joseph. Note their listing in the 1860 census under entries for Joseph the husband of Nancy Mahulda. Finally note that Caroline and John (two of these children) marry into the Yarbrough family and are living next to Nancy Mahulda in census records. In her biography Nancy Mahulda mentions taking care of nine orphaned children who were the children of her husband's three brothers and wives who had died and left them.

It is noted that there were always people at the minister's home but there is no documentation of them having children.
