Quick reply. Definitly a connection. My mother happens to be the Marie mentioned however, I have always been told that The name was Parthena instead of Barthena (to which I have heard that name used twice now through Burton research). I do know that That she went by Grandma Thene so told to me by my aunt Thema. Are you saying that Sara Ann (Sala Ann)Floyd was married to James Monroe Hudson instead of William (Jim) Hudson?
