RE: Can we be kin?
Woops! I guess I was typing too fast last night and goofed on one of my own lines. I left out a generation! I left out my gg-gfather, Green Berry Stephens. He was the father of Minnie A Stephens Burks and the son of Elizabeth Estes Stephens. You can insert him between these two ladies in the message I posted below.

More,later!

RE: Can we be kin?
Yes, Becky, we are related. Actually, we are related two ways.

We are 4th cousins 1 generation removed through our common ancestors, Henry & Elizabeth Burks.

Your line goes back like this:
You > your father > John Massey Burks > Francis Massey Burks > Josiah Burks > Henry Burks.

My line goes back like this:
Me > my mother > Rachel Elizabeth Burks Sizemore > Samuel Walter Burks > William Henry Burks > George Abner Burks > Henry Burks.

We are also 5th cousins 1 generation removed through our common ancestors Charles & Mary Estes.

Your line goes back like this:
You > your father > John Massey Burks > Francis Massey Burks > Zany Arminta Estes Burks > Allen Toney Estes > Charles Estes.

My line goes back like this:
Me > my mother > Rachel Elizabeth Burks Sizemore > Minnie A Stephens Burks > Elizabeth Estes Stephens > Zephaniah Estes > Charles Estes.

I'm delighted to hear from you. I have very little information on your grandfather except that he was born in Holly Pond AL in Mar 1884, died about 1963 in California and married Ada Whatley on 4 Feb 1906 in Cullman Co AL. Maybe I'll go look for his census records on Ancestry before I have to get to bed.

I've got to be up very early in the morning for work. I'll send you an email in the next day or two.

Best regards,
Debbie
