I have taken over my brothers research since he passed. Our family shows Alexander McBurney (McBurney-90) as his dad. But upon further research and checking with others, I cant make it match up in my mind. My William was born in Pa. and died in Ky. His dad was born in Ireland. He had a sister named Jane who later married Charles Fogg, this is where a lot of info came from in matching them. Janes marriage certificate was signed by William McBurney , this is my William. Please take a look at his profile and see if anyone was any suggestions which direction to take this information.

Thank you

In what year was William McBurney born in PA? Do you know the county and or city?

What year did he die in KY and in what county and or city?

Do you know what county Alexander McBurney was born in in Ireland? Do you have his birth year, marriage year and location, death year and location?
William was born Feb. 12 1809 in Washington Co. PA
Died July 29 1888 Carroll Co.Ky.
Thank you Frank Gill for taking the time in trying to help me with my puzzle.

There are two censuses from 1850. One has a William L. McBurney still living in Pa.  The other has a William McBurney living in Kentucky.   The L. in the one's name  may have caused someone to make an assumption.

Maureen Rosenfeld,

I think you are correct and I think that is how we attached to the wrong family ! Thank you for your time on this issue.

Thank you Chris Hoyt for your time and suggestions. I have checked Janes info and it shows Alexander and Margaret as parents but no maiden name or further info on them. I may need to order her original certificate to be able to see if there is any more info that is not showing up on ancestry.

Thank you again for your time and help on this issue.
