Elijah Burns was in S.C. on the 1790 census and several of his sons claimed to have been born in S.C.
Elijah also sons Elijah Jr. Stephen, William, Absalom and several more that I am still in the process of documenting. Elijah migrated to Bedford County Tennessee very early in the 1800's and several of his sons faught in the War of 1812 and moved to Illinois shortly after, but some were not satisfied with Illinois so they moved on to Arkansas. Elijah Sr's wife was believed to be Cherokee.
Was your William the one listed on the 1820 Franklin County Illinois census and also the william listed as the early settler of Franklin/ Williamson County in "The History of Williamson County Illinois", By Milo Erwin

". . . 1817 was more prolific of settlers . . . William Burns and five brothers settled in Northern "Major Lockaleer the Burnes place."

Is this your William Burns ?
