Burton's of South Carolina
First post everyone!!! I hope you can help.
I have a ggg grandmother Jane Sizemore Sherred who mother is named Lanie Burton. Or so it seems. Jane's SC death certificate does not have any parents listed but her sister Caroline Sizemore Blassimgame has the mothers name. I have located the family in the 1850 and 1860 census. Lanie married Ben Sizemore. Since she is listed as mulatto in the 1860 census I assume she was a FPOC. My family has always said that ggg Jane was not black and was part indian. I've been searching for Burton/Burdine in SC and while I have found some I can't see how my gggg grandmother Lanie is connected. Did a male Burton marry a Mary possibly? I think that is what I am looking for. And Lanie may have had a sister named Elizabeth.
I'd appreciate any help!!
