I cant believe it has been almost 8 years since I posted this information so hope you are still out ther and get this.There is a Supreme Court case (13,698; 13,703; 13,704; 13,705) involving the estate of Mary McAuley between 1887 and 1892.It states she was a daughter of John McCauley and Mary McBurney. This is Mary McAuley listed as a daughter in the 1815/1816 will of James McBurney.Mary McAuley died unmarried and without issue (no children).She had no nieces or nephews or brothers and sisters.Because of this the court record tracked down all of her FIRST COUSINS and their names are listed on the cases of record.
First, the case listed her mother as Mary McBurney and stated that her mother had three brothers, Alexander, Joseph, and James, and two sisters, Jane Gillespie and Martha Mathews.
It goes on to say that her maternal uncle Alexander McBurney, who survived said decedent, Ebenezer M. McBurney and Julia Ash, and he had five other sons and daughters all of whom died prior to the death of the decedent, on of whom, Thomas McBurney died without issue ad four of whom left children, being second cousins of the descedent, who survived her.
The court goes on to list all the names of her first cousins that left issue (had children)and I will only list those of the McBurney lines here:
"It was admitted on the record of all parties interested that Miss Mary McCauley, deceased, had the following material first cousins who survived her, to wit:
Ebenezer M. McBurney and Julia Ash, being children of Alexander McBurney, deceased.
