Amy, I have a copy of the 1860 Census for the town of Hutsonville, Crawford County, IL in front of me.It lists our Jacob Albin as age 32, male, occupation-cooper, born in KY.It lists his wife Elizabeth age 30 born IL.Children: Wallis, 5 yrs. male Mahala, 4 yrs. female Nancy, 3 yrs. female Josephine, 2 yrs. female
I have just recently found the father and mother of Elizabeth Burris (that is the correct spelling), her father was William Burris b. abt. 1810 and her mother was Mahala Mize b. abt. 1813 both of eastern TN.Mahala's father was Joseph Mize and her mother was Rachel Dutch.Keep digging and I will too.Your cousin, Oneita.
