Mary Jane Smith Franklin Burton
Birth: 1811
Abbeville County
South Carolina, USA
Death: 1893
Benton County
Arkansas, USA

My GGG Grandmother and mother of my GG Grandfather Hugh Samuel Franklin, Mary Jane Smith of Abbeville, South Carolina, first married Thomas D. Franklin 17 Mar 1831 in Kentucky. They subsequently lived in Alabama and then Attala County, Mississippi. Some of their children were born in Alabama and the remainder in Mississippi. They divorced sometime in the 1850's, and my GG Grandfather H. Samuel Franklin made the long trip to Mississippi from Texas to bring his Mother and siblings still at home to live with him in Texas. Mary Jane lived with my Great Grandfather Hugh Samuel Franklin for sometime in Wood County, Texas and then in Kaufman County, Texas.

Mary Jane then married Williams Burton whom I believe she had known previously from her younger years when she lived in either South Carolina or Mississippi. (information provided by GGG Granddaughter Nancy Yankie)
