Does anyone out there have information on the ancestors of Elijah Burton (b. 1861 in IL d. 1933 in Ewing, IL). I believe his father may have been Harvey Burton (b. 1843 in TN) but I can't find out for sure. The info I have on his mother is that her given name is possibly Mary Ann or Martha (b. abt 1843 in TN), and her family name is Sooter or Sweetin. My grandmother, Elijah's granddaughter, is pretty sure her Ggrandma's name was Martha & she is buried in Franklin Co., IL, and that Elijah took care of her in her later years. We're not sure if Elijah's parents were ever married. The obit I have for him says he was an orphan. Elijah was married to Cornelia Jane Holman.
