The daughter of Aaron Burleson, II and Rachel Hendricks, Mary Burleson was born ca. 1780.She married David Allard.I've seen one source that says David Allard was the son of Sarah Unknown and Hardy Allard with no source.
Aaron Burleson, II wrote his Will 16 Nov 1781 in what is now Washington Co., TN, and the children he named included his dauhter, Mary Burleson.Aaron Burleson II reportedly was killed by Native Americans near the Clinch River, near present day Sullivan Co., TN.There's a possibility he was living in or near Jacob Womack's Womack's Fort, which was in present day Sullivan Co., TN.Aaron Burleson and and Jacob Womack pretty well followed the same trails in life.In 1778 Aaron was in Womack's District, Washington DISTRICT, TN
David Allard died before 1828, and in 1830 Mary (nee Burleson) Allard was enumerated inHorsehead Twp., Crawford Co., AR with her son, James Burleson Allard and her daughter, Lucy Allard, who married Rev. Benjamin Pigman in 1834, and they lived in Madison Co., AR.I don't believe for one minute that Mary (nee Burleson) Allard died on the Stone River in TN as indicated in some databases.Mary (nee Burleson) Allard was on the 1828 Horsehead Twp., Crawford Co., AR tax list.Larkin Womack and his nephew, Larkin Weaver, and Benjamin Weaver are on the 1828 Upper Twp., Crawford Co., AR tax list.Larkin Weaver was the son of Frances Womack and David Weaver, and there's a strong possibility this Benjamin Weaver was a brother of David Weaver and both men were the sons of Frances Hutson and Samuel Weaver who died in White Co., TN. Frances (nee Womack) Weaver and Larkin Womack were grandchildren of Jacob Womack and Sarah Johnson.Their father was David Womack.
Court records in Missouri indicate that Larkin Womack and his wife, Frances (nee Basye) Quick were living in Howard Co., MO in 1818.
David Allard and Mary Burleson's son Aaron DAVID Allard married Mary "Polly" Weaver 30 Jul 1820 Howard Co., MO, and in 1830 they were enumerated in Cooper Co., MO; in 1840 they were enumerated in Platte Co., MO.By 1850 they had moved to Hopkins Co., TX.Their marriage record indicates his name was David Allard.He was always enumerated as Aaron Allard on census records.Their son, Aaron Hardin Allard was born ca. 1837 MO, and he was living with his parents in Hopkins Co., TX in 1850.Aaron Hardin married Sarah Ann Colbert 11 Mar 1856, and by 1860 they were living in Erath Co., TX.Mary "Polly" Weaver was the daughter of David Weaver and Frances Womack, granddaughter of Jacob Womack.Her brother, Larkin Womack was my 3rd great-grandfather.
David Allard and Mary Burleson's son, James Burleson Allard married Mary "Polly" (nee Weaver) Allard's sister, Nancy Weaver, and by 1840 they were enumerated next door to Aaron David Allard and Mary "Polly" Weaver in Platte Co., MO.James Burleson Allard died before 1850 and by 1850 Nancy had married Jonathan D. Hunt 25 Apr 1850 Hopkins Co., TX.Her children by James Burleson Allard Frances Jane Allard, born ca. 1839 MO and William Allard, born ca. 1842 MO, were enumerated in 1850 as Frances Hunt and William Hunt.
You will find in databases that David Allard and Mary Burleson's son, James Burleson Allard married Amanda Hamilton.Not true.The James Allard who married Amanda Hamilton was born ca. 1830 MO to Mary "Polly" Weaver and Aaron David Allard, and in 1850 he and his wife were enumerated immediately under his parents.
Since other Allard researchers and I found Aaron Allard and his brother, James Burleson Allard in Platte Co., MO in 1840 about five years ago, Ancestry.com has changed that county to Polk Co., MO on their census records.
Other erroneous genealogy found in databases is Larkin Womack was the father of Frances (nee Womack) Weaver.That's amusing because there was no other Larkin Womack born prior to 1785, and Frances (nee Womack) Weaver was reportedly born in 1780.And you will find the husband of Frances (nee Womack) Weaver, David Weaver's name was Elijah David Weaver.David amd Framces Womack Weaver have never been found on any census, but their granddaughter Emma Susan Weaver Potts Rogers said after 1900 in her application for her Native American benefits, based on the Native American heritage of Frances Womack Weaver, that her grandfather's name was David Weaver.And so did her cousin, Frances Jane Allard Hudson in her application.
I don't know how we would ever connect Rachel Allard Gray's mother, Rachel (nee possibly Allard) Gray, except on the 1850 Hopkins Co., TX census, Aaron David Allard's date and place of birth was 1800 AL and the 1860 Hopkins Co., TX census indicates he was born was 1802 GA.
Are you or your husband direct descendants of the Burlesons I've mentioned?
