Hi, I'm searching for Parents and siblings of Elisabeth/Elizabeth Buckner born 1826 in Georgia who married Kinion Adams 1843 Muscogee, georgia. 1850 they live in Troup County, Georgia, 1860-1910 they live in Heard County, Georgia, All List her as being born in Georgia. The 1910 Heard Co, Census shows Elizabeth age 85 being born in Georgia,and parents born in Georgia as well. I haven't been able to connect her to Parents yet? Any help is appreciated. Elizabeth Buckner -Adams is my 3rd great grandmother..Thanks :)

The first thing you need to look at is where her parents are from. The 1880 census says [blank] for the father and Georgia for the mother, so right there it would appear that someone was uncertain about her father's BP. The 1910 census says "Georgia" but BPs tend to get dittoed a lot with the state where it was taken, so that's less reliable, while 1900 says "Sth Carolina," so I would credit that. This is a pretty critical clue, since there weren't many Buckners born in South Carolina before 1805, so I'd say her father is probably one of the three sons of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Buckner-44 (George, Burrow or Daniel), or one of the Bernard Buckner-Sarah Heape descendants, who unfortunately are not on Wikitree.

She also has an apparent sister named Judith Ann who married Jasper Harris in 1846, ("Georgia, County Marriages, 1785-1950," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KXVZ-B62 : 4 November 2017), Jasper Harris and Judith Ann Buckner, 20 Dec 1846; citing Marriage, Muscogee, Georgia, United States, county courthouses, Georgia; FHL microfilm 401,845.)

I'm not super confident in the research on all those families, but I'm leaning toward Henry Buckner's son George since she doesn't seem to fit the others very well. There's not much work on him, but I believe he was still alive in the 1820s. Henry died in Tennessee some time after 1821, and after that his sons kind of scattered hither and yon.
This Jasper Harris is a good lead. Someone's been working on him,


Again, not super confident in the quality of the research, but there are some clues in here somewhere.
Thank you Ben; All day at the hints so far, sadly I haven't been able to find a connection between them yet. If you possibly run across any other ideas, please contact me. I research everyday and will continue to do so until I get some family linked to her. I know they're out there, but where. Thank you so much and I'll continue trying through your helpful links and suggestions, maybe I'm overlooking or missing something.. :)

No prob.
Someone on line was speculating that a Mary Buckner of Habersham County who won a land lottery in Troup Co. in 1827 may have been her mother, and that might make some sense since Habersham borders on South Carolina.

There is a somewhat mysterious fellow, a David Buckner living in Pendleton District SC in 1800, which was up around that border area with Habersham, GA.

"United States Census, 1800," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XHRC-75R : accessed 7 December 2018), David Buckner, Pendleton District, South Carolina, United States; citing p. 117, NARA microfilm publication M32, (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 50; FHL microfilm 181,425.

I don't really know who he is, but he was young and had three children at the time.

This guy is also worth looking at

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZY4-B9D : 12 April 2016), William Buckner, Monroe county, Monroe, Georgia, United States; citing family , NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).
