Hi Mike, After following your posting trail from your reply posting to mine in the Williamson Co. TN forum, I came across this one of yours & after entering your data in my Family Tree Maker, I can now tell you we are 6th cousins thru our Beasley connection & who knows we could also be related thru the Allen lines, since I also descend from:
George Allen/Mildred Baker Johnson's daughter Ursula Allen/Henry B. Terry; Frances Ann Terry/2nd husband- James Richardson Burnett; Frances Anna Burnett/1st husband- Charles William Blair; Nellie Lee Blair/1st husband- Robert Arendal Hanson; Helen Margaret Hanson/1st husband Kenneth James Marshall (born as Claude Eugene Hendershott...he changed his name between 1934-1939) & me, born as Roberta Ann Marshall.
My Beasley linage begins with the 1st wife, Mariah (or Meriah) Beasley of my g-g-g-grandfather, William Burnett (father of James Richardson Burnett), who after Mariah's death married her sister, Narcissa Beasley.They were the daughters of Pitts Beasley/Martha Holt & their niece, Nancy C. Beasley, daughter of their brother James Berryman Beasley, married my g-g-grandfather's (James Richardson Burnett) brother Levi T. Burnett.How's that for making your head swim?
Thanks for all your great info! Bobbi Harrison native Californian living in Puyallup, WA
