I am looking for information on my ancestor, Mary Townsend, born in South Carolina, who is listed in the 1850 Census of Jackson County, Florida as being 70 years old and living with her daughter Mary Burns (nee Townsend) and her husband Jonah Burns and their family. Her daughter, Mary Townsend, born in 1805, in South Carolina, married Jonah Burns in Screven County, Georgia on May 10, 1826. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Mary in Canada.
(Note: In the 1850 Census the Burns family are listed as Barney...a mistake.)
