Burrell Eubanks, son of William Eubanks and Barbara Miller Eubanks, appears as an heir to his father's estate in thefinal settlement of the estate March 4, 1842.His mother Barbary Eubanks, widow of William Eubanks, Sr., received seventy-five dollars and eighty cents.The children George, James, Charles, Lemuel, William, Littleton, Evan, Burrell, Alfred, Jackson, Matilda, and Permelia each received twenty-five dollars and twenty-six cents.
There appears to be no 1840 Census for Perry Co., AL, in existence.
In the 1850 US Census for Perry Co., AL, Burrell, age 27, appears with his siblings Littleton, 36, Alfred, 24, and Jackson, 22, and youngest daughter Permelia, 19.All the boys were farmers.
On the 1860 US Census for Perry Co., AL, Burrell, 48, was living with the family of Burrell Holley, a short distance away.He was no longer farming, but was employed as a ditcher.His personal worth was given as $400.
Burrell Eubanks of Marion, Perry Co., AL, enlisted as a Private in Company F, 20th Infantry Regiment of Alabama.It is likely he died during his service from wounds or disease.His brother-in-law O. S. Massey appeared at the Perry Co., AL, Probate Court on June 10, 1862 to petition the court for letters of administration to the Burrell Eubanks Estate.In the court minutes it states “more than forty days have elapsed since the death of the decedent (Burrell) was publicly known.” O. S. Massey returned to court in August to file the appraisal bill and inventory of Burrell’s estate.The location of Burrell’s grave is unknown to this writer.
I post this information because there was also a Burrell Eubanks who listed on the 1830 US Census for both Jackson and Greene Counties, MS, with a female aged 70-80 in his household.The parents of this Burrell Eubanks are unknown. This Burrell married Margaret Ball, daughter of William Ball, who is also listed near him on the 1830 Census of both counties.Burrell and Margaret Ball moved to Hinds Co., MS, before 1840, where he appears on the 1840 Census.He and his family eventually relocated to Morehouse Parish, LA.
