LOOKING FOR CLUES
Phebe Burns, Almira Picket and Ashours Picket are on the 1856 State Census of Iowa in Des Moines Township, Lee County. I am looking for any information I can find out about them or the other Picket children with them. I believe Almira is the Almira Burns who married James Picket 1838 in Ripley Co, In. She is not there in 1850 but is back there by herself in 1860. Ashours was born in Iowa in 1848. Did James Picket die in Lee Co c1850s? Amira appears to be the daughter of Thomas and Catherine Burns who disappear after the late 1840s in Ripley Co. Did Catherine die and Thomas marry this Phebe? She shows up back in Ripley Co in 1860 with children Virgil and Resaurs (too young to be hers) but no husband. Did Thomas die in Lee Co? Does anyone have any information on any of these names?
