All Burners from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia are descendants of either Jacob and Magdalena Burner who lived in what is now Page County Virginia or from Earhardt and Anna Burner who lived in Powell's Fort Valley of what is now Shenandoah Co. Va. Both had large families. Jacob left a will in which he named his children in 1797. Earhardt had no will but most of his children are named in deeds- he probably died in 17090s also. Earhardt and Jacob were probably related and both appear to have been Mennonites but Burner researchers have hit a brick wall going back any further. (In this message Daniel Bly refers to Jacob Burner and Magdalena Bumgardner as man and wife.Which is it , is there a Magdalena or not Daniel Bly.)
Also from Maurice Clicks book there is a referrence toa will written by John Bumgatdner; John's will, proved 22 Mar 1751, Named sons, John and Christian, daughters, Mary, Elizabeth and Madley, and grandson, Jacob Burner, and stated that his sons to be put to school untill they can read and write and then to trades.Children of John's were: John Bumgardner Christian Bumgardner Mary Bumgardner Elizabeth Bumgardner Madeline (Madley) Bumgardner
It appears then that Madeline Bumgardner was married to a Burner and had a son Jacob Burner.I submit then Jacob Burner Sr. was married toa Magdalena Bumgardner, whetherher name is spelled Magdalena, Madelin, Madley, or Maddy as used in other genealogists reports.
