Aaron Burleson

Aaron Burleson, son of Jesse and Elizabeth was born 18 August, 1779 in Buncombe Co. North Carolina. He died in Jackson Co. MS., 25 December 1849. In 1805 in Georgia Aaron married Mary Ann Camp. It is believed she was a neice to Sarah Camp. She probably is a relative but the connection is not known. According to the obituary of Mary Ann she was born 20 February, 1788 in Germany, and brought to Georgia by her parents who died soon after their arrivial and died within two days of each other.

In 1816 Aaron moved his family from Georgia to Mobile, AL., and in 1829 to Jackson Co. MS. where he died. Mary Ann joined the Church in 1805 the same year of her marriage. She was said to be a devout Christian woman and loved by all who knew her. She was known by the Georgia and Alabama Conference, and her brother-in-law , the Rev. Thomas Sanford(or Samford) of the Georgia Conference was ever most dear to her. Mary Ann died 22 August, 1881 in Jackson Co. Ms., she is buried beside her husband, and thought to be in the old graveyard that was found years ago, when Mississippi Power began construction of their plant located on highway 63 North in Jackson Co. This is the location that the Burleson's lived. I made a request to see the old grave yard but was told it was difficult to make your way to the location, and some of the graves were destroyed by the bulldozer before they realized it was a graveyard. Since this was private property one could not go onto the site without an escort. Without doubt all or many of the older Burleson's are buried there.
and probably the burial site for Aaron and Mary Ann Burleson.

Mary Ann was living in the household of her daughter Sarah, and son in law, Ebenizer Clark when the 1850 Census was taken in Jackson Co. MS. Mary Ann is listed as 70 years and born in GA. Her obit. states Germany.

Aaron and Mary Ann had six known children.

A. Elizabeth Burleson, born 20 August, 1809 Georgia, died 16 September 1812 Georgia.
B. John Isaac Burleson, born 4 January, 1811 Georgia, died 9 February, 1860 Jackson Co. MS.
C. Sarah Burleson, born 7 October, 1812 near Augusta Georgia, died 1881 Jackson Co. MS.
D. Elias Burleson, born 1 November, 1813 near Augusta Georgia, died 1865 MS.
