We are descended from Thomas and Nancy Burns.  John Burns Sn was brother with Nancy.  John Burns Jr. was his son and my gggrandfather.  I recently viewed his burial plot in MN.  Do you have any info on the John Burns SN or John Burns Jr family you could share?John Burns Jr. was quite a character, he signed up to join the Civil War using his cousin, George Washington Robinson's name, as he was too young to enlist.  Thank you.  Lisa.

Sorry I thought I was sending to a known relative.  My bad.  Nancy Burns 1798-1865 married Thomas Burns 1791 - 1850.  They had a son John Burns Senior born 1821 and he had John Burns Jr. my gggrandfather.  I'm trying to locate information on John Burns Jr.  He was born in 1852 In Indianna.  He passed in 1927 in Motley MN on Jan 7, 1927.  He served in the Civil War using his older cousins name and birthday, George Washington Robinson.  Thanks Lisa.
