No, the Burns family have given me plenty of brick walls,  two sister died in infancy, both mother and father never found their deaths,  keep going back every  few years, a bit of a hopeless case.

Thanks again

It's going to be really tough with a name like Mary Burns.  She could have gone anywhere and there is no 1890 census.  By 1900, she was probably married.

It would be really tedious to do, but you could try tracing the other women in this rather large party of women exported from the poorhouse to see where they went.  Did they stay in New York or did they maybe set off as a group for some frontier location where there was a shortage of women?
