Hi Sandra, glad to see your post. I am recently researching Margaret Burris/s who married James Richardson in Madison County, Ohio 21 May 1836. I assume also that she was a daughter of Joseph Burris as per the History of Madison County Ohio, which mentions Joseph Burris from Maryland. On Page 727 it lists his childrens names. John, Samuel, Joseph, Robert, James, Betsey and Margaret. It said no other information could be ascertained accept that he was a native of Maryland and that he had seven children. It also states that most of the children moved West and have not been in that county for many years.
Margaret is listed in the census for Madison County Range Twp. through 1870. Am having trouble finding her after that so will keep searching. In the 1870 census, the census taker spelled the last name Richardson "Retchinson"!!! Wasant much better in the 1860 census where they spelled it Rich???I would be interested to know which Burris you are reseaching. Possibly your Jane was the middle name of Betsey? Do you have a year for her birth? Margaret was born abt 1909 and thru each census claims she was born in Ohio. Sincerely Bonnie Watson Miller
