Levi's son, John, is too young to be in the census.

We are down to one John, but who is he?  Levi's son, John, may be old enough to be in the census.

Assuming "Lur" is Levi.  Three males and two females fits Levi's household at the time.  Henry may be Levi's son.

10b.  1850 Census Index/Microfilm (online at GenealogyLibrary.com; indexed as "L.N. Buchan"):  4th District Northern Division, Tishomingo Co., MS, p. 27, 366/366, enumerated 1 Oct 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
L. ? Bircham 74 m Farmer 500 NC
Lucinda 37/57 f     Tenn
Nancy 13/15 f      "
Levi 10 m      "
William 7/9 m     Mi
Lucinda 4 f     "
Levi has a middle initial, but it's mostly a smudge on the film; however, I don't think it's "N" and it could be an "H."  This census-taker's "3's" and "5's" are very difficult to tell apart, as are his "7's" and "9's."  Lucinda's age actually looks more like 57, but I went with 37 based on the unlikeliness that she had a child at age 53 and the fact that she lived until 1901.  Henry BURCHAM is in the same county. 

11.  D.L. Murray & N.R. Murray, compilers.  1996. Marriage Index: AR, MO, MS, TX, 1766-1981.  Marriage data from the "Hunting for Bears" collection (Broderbund CD-5):
BURCHAM, Lucinda WILLIS, S R  7 Nov 1858 Alcorn Co., MS
BIRCHAM, L H HAYS, Elizabeth 20 Nov 1858 Alcorn Co., MS
Is Lucinda the widow or the daughter?  The mother has been ten months widowed, so it makes sense she was re-marrying.  The daughter was only 12 or 13, very young to be married, though perhaps not in the south.  The 1860 Census record of S.R. WILLIS should clear it up.

12.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service: Ancestral File (AF) and International Genealogical Index (IGI).  Says Levi was born in Wales in 1772,  which is obviously incorrect, and that Lucinda was born in 1812, which does appear to be correct.
