Temperence "Tempie" Evans was my great-great-grandmother. She married John "Brinkley" Burks on Jan. 31, 1831 in Henry Co., Georgia. They were the parents of 11 known children. As children, Tempie and her brother, William P. Evans (1812-1865, buried in Union Cemetery), saw their parents (names unknown) killed by Indians, according to oral family history. She sewed and made beautiful quilts. Tempy is buried between Brinkley and their daughter, Jemima Burks Sims; there is no longer a marker at her grave.
