Enoch Burns

Enoch was born in Loudoun County, Virginia about 1806, and he lived for many years in Belmont County, Ohio where he was listed in various census reports including that of 1870. One source says that Enoch died 30 June, 1889, but we do not know where he was buried.

William John Todd

William was born in Northern Ireland 24 May 1821, and he died in Bay City, Michigan on 23 December, 1909. According to one record, his parents were a Nathaniel Todd and a "Miss Montgomery."

One of our Todd cousins has participated in Family Tree's DNA testing. We have learned that he probably came from Antrim County, Ireland which is north of Belfast and that his DNA pattern is very much like that of Mary Todd Lincoln, the President's wife. However, we have not yet learned anything useful about William's actual place of birth or of his parents. If, indeed, his father's name was Nathaniel, it was a quite common name in Antrim County, Ireland at the start of the 19th century.

Although records show that William was buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Bay City, this has not been confirmed.

James Watkins, Sr.

Although we have some good information about James: his will, his death date, the name of a brother, his marriage, his role in the Sussex County, Virginia Society of Friends, we do not know when or where he was born. We also do not know where he was buried, but given that he was a Quaker, his burial may have been a simple one with an unmarked grave.

Ann White Watkins

Ann, the wife of James Watkins, Sr., presents a different problem. We know when she was born, who her parents were, and when she was married to James. However, we know only approximately when Ann died (sometime after September, 1813). And like her husband, we know nothing of where Ann was buried.

Joseph D. Wyburn, Sr.

During the past couple of years we have learned a good deal about Joseph. However, of the several questions that remain about him, the one I'd like most to solve, is the question of where Joseph was buried.

Rachel TenEyck Wyburn

The second wife of Joseph D. Wyburn, Sr., we know hardly anything about Rachel. We have only an approximate date of birth and that she was born in New Jersey. There is nothing that will positively tie Rachel to the family of Jeremiah and Elsey Hoagland Ten Eyck. However, in the 1840 Census they had a daughter who was between 5 and 10, and Rachel would have been about seven. She was not listed with Jeremiah and Elsey in the 1850 Census, but several pages later she was found living with the family of John and Catherine Doeharty. Could Catherine have been an aunt? More likely is that Rachel had "gone into service" working for the Doeharty family. Furthermore, we have no idea when and where Rachel and Joseph were married nor do we know where Rachel was buried.
