Constance Taylor Guess
Could you give me more details on how you found out for sure that Constance and joseph are buried at the Guess-Morse Cemetery in Caldwell County? Am very excited to find this information and from what was posted on here we have been able to find the burial site. We have a copy of the deed where Joseph Guess sold the property to William Morse. We have seen the remaining standing markers of William and Gourly Sp? Morse and Melissa Morse Guess. Also Martha Asher and another Asher. There are many many stones in this area but nothing else that is visibly marked. 200 yrs has really taken its toll on this cemetery. Really really want to find their actual graves. They are our 4x Great Grandparents. If this indeed is their burial site I and my family want to see what we can do to help and preserve what is remaining.

According to every reference I can find, Zachary Taylor did not have an older sister. And, if the given birth years are accurate, it is impossible for Constance to be the daughter of Sarah Dabney Strother Taylor.

John Thomas Winburn
Dear Bob,

I am the great granddaughter of John Thomas Winburn, who was married to Elizabeth Carrie Harrelson. I am a member of and have found that our family tree has quite a few interesting relatives. You mention that Rev. John Rossiter Winburn was married to Elizabeth Hart. Did you know that her mother, Elizabeth Hutchinson, was arrested as a witch?

I have also discovered that my 3rd great grandfather, David Winburn, who was married to Kezziah Herring, links my branch with Abraham Lincoln? Kezziah's grandfather's sister, Bathsheba Herring was the paternal grandmother of Abraham Lincoln. Bathsheba married Colonel Abraham Lincoln, becoming the parents of Thomas Lincoln, father of Abraham.

And I only joined ancestry to find out more about my grandfather Jay Te Winburn. I had NO idea where this journey would take me!

I am always on the hunt for family information. So, if you have any family lore, documents, or stories, I would appreciate whatever you could contribute. I would also be happy to do the same with what I have. The duplication of names has me confused at times, so I am thinking of hiring a an expert to straighten out any misconceptions before I commit our family tree to paper.

Hope to hear back from you,
Carol Winburn

Bob, you say you use free sites, hope you use a great one. Merle

Bob, will keep you in mind if I come across anything. I don't have any paid sites, but we have most at our genealogy library. I still work, so only get to spend about 30 minutes there Tues. thru Fri.

I also go to Salt Lake City for a week end of Sept. with several others.

Bob, hopefully the Miss. lady's papers survived and became part of some University records or some other repository. Doubtfully that your William and/or Martha born Ala. When they were born, Ala. was still very much Indian territory.
I noted 3 Winburne families on 1840, may be more. Found Edwin in the correct age bracket with one other male same age bracket and an older female born 1780-1790, probably his mother. One female slave in the household. The other two Winburne families, the census was torn for first names. One might have been S. Winburne and the other William? All had slaves. Tomorrow I will take a look at the slave schedules. Merle

Bob, yes, I've seen the black Lauderdale Winburn's and noticed that some have the same given names as the whites. One is Guliford Winburn. A Henry Winburn married a Sarah Winburn 1833, probably cousins. Three children. Henry died by 1838. widow Sarah married Champion Anderson. Think she buried Winbourn cem. with your William and Martha. Probably either she or Henry child of William and Martha. Do you know from where the dates for William and Martha came from? Markers? If I find any links I will let you know. Merle

Bob, in my first message to you, I explained that I'm doing research for a college friend. Roger and his cousin Sarah were great grandchildren of Charles Lewis Winburne Find A Grave #12187883, Erath Co. Tex. He son of Edwin Winburne Find A Grave #10161491, Lauderdale Co. Ala. I knew their grandfather Ed Winburn. Does this Edwin connect to your William. I've been collecting Lauderdale Co. Winburn (various spellings) data. I'm sure they all related and came from N.C.
Regards, Merle
