Can anyone please tell me who is the J. L. Burkett burried at Allen's Point Cemetery near Honey Grove, Fannin Co., Tx is? His head stone only says "J L Burkett Co. A Chambers Bn. CSA" He's buried with my relatives & my family can't even tell me. Thanks ~

Theresa, I am looking for a John L. Burkett; cannot find him on census in Tenn. or Texas; I do have a record of marriage for him in Tenn. Your J. L. is probably too old to be him, but maybe--what is date of death? This John L. is my great-grandfather; don't know birthdates either-thanks--

Thanks for the inquiry. My J.L. Burkett died 10-3-1924..... And what is weird I am looking for a John Burkett who is the father of my William Franklin Burkett.

My John L. died sometime in the early 1950s, I think. I found a picture of him from about that time. However, there was a J. Henry Burkett listed in 1920 census for Gibson Cty., age 76.

William Franklin Burkett b. 1871 in Arkansas d. 1937 in Honey Grove, Fannin Co, Tx. by suicide. He married Nora Florence Ward in 1898. I sure wish there was a connection... Let me know.

Sorry, guess it's not the same William. Mine was still alive sometime around 1950; I have a picture of him from that time. And I know he married Aberdeen Nail and don't think he married anyone else. We're probably related anyway!Haha; but it's amazing how people traveled around back then, had children, who traveled some more----------

**Other email is Swampdancr---I think I found something!!!
We DO have a Texas connection, and here is an excerpt from a letter written by another Tenn. Burkett researcher (from an old letter she has) "Jim Burkett (son of George or G.W.) married in Tenn. he had two boy he came to Texas in 1903 left here the next year went to West Texas we never heard from him again." IS Fannin County in West Texas? PS I Found my John L.; he had a uncle named Elliot Murdock; their father was G.W. or George Burkett. Elliot went to Texas sometime before 1888; moved to Honey Grove. Then went to Wagoner, OK, then to New Boston, Texas, then to 'old Burkett place where he died'
Please email me; we are working on this--are you a Burkett?
