Are there any descendants or others who know anything about this Joseph Burchell before or after the 1850 census?
1850 Marion Co, AR census
Joseph - 55 (1795) NC Mary- 53 (1797) SC Joseph - 22 (1828) TN Elijah - 20 (1930) AR
My Edmon D. Burchell was born in TN in 1819.His next record is his marriage to Matilda Maxwell in 1841 in Polk Co, MO.They lived in Cedar Co, MO until the late 1850s.Edmon bought some property in No. AR in 1859/60.Edmon was in the 1860 Howell Co, MO census and in neighboring Ozark Co, MO in 1870 and remained there until his death. I'm not sure if that part of Howell Co. turned into Ozark Co. or if Edmon actually moved to Ozark Co.
It does seem that Edmon and Joseph might have been related because they both lived in TN before they were in AR and MO.
Also, Edmon & Matilda's son, Thomas Marion Burchell, named his lst born child Joseph or Josephine...I think Joseph (it was hard to read).Thomas lived at one time or another in Ozark Co, MO, Marion Co, AR, and Ava, Douglas Co, MO.
I have been unable to find any history or the location of Joseph and his family before or after 1850 and am hoping someone has knowledge about Joseph's Burchell line.
