4 Osburh or Osburga was the first wife of King Ęthelwulf of Wessex and mother of Alfred the Great. Alfred's biographer, Asser, described her as "a most religious woman, noble in character and noble by birth".

Osburh's existence is known only from Asser's Life of King Alfred. She is not named as witness to any charters, nor is her death reported in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. So far as is known, she was the mother of all Ęthelwulf's children, his five sons Ęthelstan, Ęthelbald, Ęthelberht, Ęthelred and Alfred the Great, and his daughter Ęthelswith, wife of King Burgred of Mercia.

5 I received this email on June 8, 2000. (Joseph Dean Moore)

Saw your query on the Adams genforum and have some related info which
might hold some clues and a few answers possibly.
You might already have seen the 1850 census in Coweta County, GA showing
Martha Ann with her husband Oliver Houston and their children. (Let me
know if you haven't as I have the 1850 and 1860 census books for Coweta
County, GA)
I have been researching the family of Jesse Adams (b. ca 1786 in
Virginia) and his wife Casey Posey Adams (b. ca 1790 in North
Carolina). They were in the 1850
census in Coweta County, GA living next door to their probable son
Jackson Adams
(b. ca 1823 in GA), his wife Ellender and children..

The 1860 census for Coweta County, GA shows Casey Posey Adams is a widow
living with her probable daughter Elizabeth Adams Bohannon and
Elizabeth's husband Joseph Bohannon.

The Coweta County, Georgia Will books show a Will for John Houston,
March 17, 1834 in which he names his children, including an Oliver
Houston. The Will is witnessed by Joseph Bohannon. Traditionally, the
witnesses to Wills were family members to some degree, e.g. in-laws,
etc. This Will record along with the 1860 census where Casey Posey Adams
(wife of Jesse Adams) is living with Joseph Bohannon family, strongly
suggests a relationship between your Martha Ann Adams and Jesse and
Casey Posey Adams, perhaps she is their daughter. It is worth further
research anyway on the Jesse Adams and Casey Posey Adams families.
There was not a Will listed in this transcribed book for Jesse Adams or
Casey Posey Adams, and I have ordered some microfilm records from the
LDS family history center to try to find more on Jesse Adams family and
his children.

What we think we know about the Adams family:

1. Martha Ann Adams, b. 1817, married Oliver Houston on September 8, 1840 in Coweta County, Georgia, d. in Hurricane Twp. Saline County, Arkansas. We have a typed copy of Coweta County Marriages, 1827-1849, A-Z, pg. 1 of 41, which shows this marriage.

2. Unproven but probable information obtained through Ancestry.com, One World Tree, shows Martha Ann Adams father to be Samuel Adams*, b. February 1, 1784, Fluvanna County, Virginia. His parents were James Adams, Jr. and Jane Cunningham. Samuel Adams married Martha Ann Thornton (b. 1789 in Elbert County, Georgia, d. 1860) in 1803 in Elbert County, Georgia. This information indicates that Samuel and Martha had 13 or 14 children (one shown seems to be a duplication). For identification purposes I will list six of them:

a. Martha Ann - had the same name as her mother.

b. James - the oldest son, had the same name as his grandfather and g-grandfather.

c. Elizabeth Jane - had both her grandmothers' names.

d. Thompson Thornton

e. Alfred Newton

3. It is hard to identify families on censuses before 1850 but we have found Samuel Adams on the 1820 Elbert County, Georgia census with 3 females less than 10 years of age. (Martha was supposedly born in 1817, but probably not in Coweta County, Georgia as the One World Tree shows.)

4. There are two Admass on the 1830 Elbert County, Georgia census, neither with females under 15.

5. In 1840, there was a Samuel Adams in Muscogee County, Georgia with 1 female between 20-30 which could be our Martha, however since she married in September, 1840 she may not show up with father's family. (Oliver Houston's 1840 Coweta County, Georgia census does show one female between 20-30.) There are several other Samuel Adams listed in 1840 and the censuses are in the file.

6. On the Russell County, Alabama census for 1850, Samuel Adams, age 64 with real estate valued at $400.00, born in Virginia, resided with wife Martha, age 60, also born in Virginia, and son Alford, age 21, born in Georgia.

7. On the Barbour County, Alabama census for 1860, Samuel, age 76, born in Virginia and wife, Martha, age 62, born in Virginia?, lived with son Thompson T. Adams, age 48, born in Georgia, and his family.

* Another possible Adams family is shown on LDS Family Group Records. Levin Adams, b.1786, Pulaski County, Georgia, m. October 4, 1821, Winifred, b. 1790 in Pulaski County, Georgia. One of their 6 children was Martha Ann Adams, b. 1816 in Pulaski County, Georgia. (see printout in file above censuses).

11 Posted by Edwin T. Drew:

I am seeking information on Jane WOOTEN of Burke Co., GA, born abt. 1810; died January 1836. Jane was married to Andrew Young John ALLEN of Burke
Co., GA after 1830. Jane's husband died during 1835, shortly before her only son, Young John ALLEN was born on Jan. 03, 1836. Jane died later of child birth
fever, and her infant son was adopted and reared by her sister Nancy and her husband Wiley HUTCHINS. Any information on the WOOTEN, ALLEN, or
HUTCHINS families of Burke Co., GA would be greatly appreciated.

15 Young John Allen and Mary Houston

Missionaries to China


Young John Allen was born in Burk Co,GA on Jan 3,1836. His parents were Andrew Young John Allen and Jane Wooten.His father being a man of more education than was common in Georgia, conducted for some years an academy for the benefit of the children and youth of the community, but subsequently he engaged successfully in cotton planting, in which he accumulated a small fortune.Young John was orphaned as a child and was raised by his maternal Aunt and Uncle, Nancy and Wiley Hutchins.

While attending his first year at Emory College, September 1854, he became engaged to Mary Houston, daughter of Samuel and Sarah Houston, who at the time was less than 16 years of age. He induced her to enter college at Lagrange, Georgia for a period of two years and then she transferred to Wesley College,Macon, Georgia. Graduating with First Honors in 1858.

Young John and Mary were married on July 22,1858 in Atlanta, Georgia by Rev. Osborn L. Smith D.D. In December 1859 they sailed to China, taking with them their young daughter Melvina, who later became Mrs. George R. Loehr. After seven long months aboard the sailing vessel "Seaman's Bride". they arrived in Shanghai, China in July 1860, where they were stationed for the rest of their lives. Mary kept open house, not only for the missionaries of her church, but for the many wayworn travellers of the other denominations as well. Remembering her own hardships on the sea, her heart went out especially to sailors. They always found a welcome at her home.

Mary's husband, Young John taught many Chinese gentlemen to read and write, started the first Chinese newspaper. He was also instrumental in starting the first Chinese young lady's school, The McTyeire Home and School for Girls. Young John also played a role in getting the Soong sisters ( one of whom was Mei-Ling, later the wife of Chang Kai shek) to come to America and be educated at Wesley College.

"During the period 1868-1883, Young John allen became involved in a variety of activities that expanded his views on the scope of missionary work. Beginning as a preacher and teacher, he soon became Editor of two newspapers, and later a third, as well as a translator for the Imperial government"

Dr. Allen passed away on May 30, 1907, after 47 years of distinguished service in China, but his wife continued to live in Shanghai. On May 24, 1927, exactly 20 years to the month of the passing of her husband, Mary also passed to her reward. She was 88 years old and had spent 67 of these years as a missionary to China, a record unprecedented in missionary annals.

47 From his United States Naval Academy Yearbook in 1961....JAMES SHARP BOURN Jim 15th Company Fort Worth, Texas Hailing from Ft. Worth, Texas, Jim made his presence felt at the Naval Academy in his varied extracurricular activities such as the Engineering Club and the Antiphonal Choir. Having spent three years at Rice, he had relatively little difficulty with his academics with one exception. Dago. But it was with quiet relief that he burned his Dago books at the end of Youngster Year and set out for better times. Jim demonstrated his Wild West talents by shooting on the riHe team. Besides being an ardent shutterbug, he was known for chasing his wives out with his record collection, mainly because there wasn ' t any space left in the room after he moved it in. In addition, Jim sjaent much of his time dragging around the Yard. His model plane collection reflects his interest in aviation, with ^which he plans to make his career. No matter what Jim takes up, his perseverance and sense of humor are sure to lead him to success. James Sharp Bourn

Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
# Missing Since: May 27, 1995 from Everett, Washington
# Classification: Endangered Missing
# Date Of Birth: January 29, 1973
# Age: 22 years old
# Height and Weight: 5'2, 130 pounds
# Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair, blue/green eyes. Brazzel's hair was bleached blonde at the time of her 1995 disappearance, as shown in one of the photographs above. She has a small rose tattoo with her first name, Tracey, imprinted across the image on one of her shoulder blades. Brazzel has a tattoo of a snake on one of her ankles. Some agencies may spell her first name "Tracy."
# Clothing Description: A dark-colored sweatshirt, jeans and black shoes.

Details of Disappearance
Brazzel was last seen at approximately 1:45 a.m. on May 27, 1995 in Everett, Washington. She was departing from Kodiak Ron's Pub on Airport Road at State Route 99 South at the time of her disappearance. Brazzel's white Ford Probe was discovered later in the day near her residence in Keeler's Corner Apartments in North Lynnwood, Washington. Authorities located evidence that suggested Brazzel entered her apartment after returning from the bar. She has never been heard from again.
Brazzel was employed as a hairstylist in Mill Creek, Washington in May 1995. She quit her job on May 25, two days prior to her disappearance. Her mother stated that she had a close relationship with her daughter in 1995 and said that Brazzel often visited her daily. Brazzel's loved ones told authorities that it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Extensive searches of the surrounding area produced no clues as to her whereabouts.
Brazzel's parents are divorced and her father resided in New Jersey at the time of her disappearance. A psychic claimed that Brazzel's remains were anchored to a car chassis in a river near Monroe, Washington shortly after she vanished. Her father financed a search of the river, but no evidence was located.
Several unconfirmed sightings of Brazzel were reported in 1997 after her father appeared as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Authorities believe that Brazzel disappeared under suspicious cicumstances. Foul play is suspected in her case, which remains unsolved.
