I have a little bit of information - but, I don't know a whole lot about the Burgess side - My understanding was she was possibly part native American and that a Crites line was as well.

Sorry I am just getting back to this. I can be emailed at

I was off work when I started this research due to back surgery and just never got back to it. Any info is welcom.
