I am researching these surnames:EDWARDS, MC KARNIN, OWENS, BURRIS, HOLL, SLEMP, MAKINGS, JONES & PECORAAt present am working mainly on the Owens from Clay County, Mo., Ky, & Va. Sam and Sally BurrisOwens came to Clay County,Mo. from Clinton Co, Ky.Have no marriage date & only the brothers that came with Sam, Wesley, Joseph, & Reuben.Next is Richard Wm. Edwards m. Amilia Foster in Lincolnshire, England & came to Clay Co.,Mo. in 1881 where Amilia died the same year. Richard then m. Mary Ann Mc Karnin . Her parents were James and Ann Mc Karnin who imigrated from Dublin, Ireland but have no date. Nor do I know what Ann's maiden name was. They had 2 sons in Ireland who came with them George the younger one was born 2/13/1849 and Mary who was born in Clay Co., Mo in 1863 so assume they came between those dates but can find nothing about them in Ireland. Would also like to find the origin of the Mc Karnin name.Any information would be appreciated and am more than will to share what I have on any of the surnames listed at the top of this page.Thank you for stopping by and good hunting.
