Posted: 1359268987000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Buster, Higginbotham
I am looking for any/all the descendants of Michael Buster and Nancy Higginbotham. Michael was born in 1825 in Russell County, KY, have no proved who his parents are. He died at the battle of Stones River during the Civil War on 31 Dec 1862 at Murfreesboro, TN. He married Nancy Higginbotham (have not proved that "Higginbotham" is her last name.) She was born about 1833 in KY and died around 1853.

Michael had 4 children in that marriage: Mary Ellen, Lewis J (who I am descended from), Robert M., and Sophia M Buster.

After Nancy's death he married Elizabeth Ann Burchet and had four children: Charles B., Josephine, Lucy Jane, and William M. Buster.

Please contact me if you are a descendant and hopefully we can collaborate!
