Mary was the daughter of Reverend Thomas Gilkerson and Maria Leard Hart Gilkerson. She married Frank Rufus Burlingame on 27 Jul 1887 in Calliope, Sioux County, Iowa.
They, (Mary and Frank) were supposedly the parents of 3 children, according to Gilkerson Genealogy by Evelyn Booth Massie, page 640. The only child, I have found, to date, is Florence, who was not quite 2 years old when her mother died. Florence later married Virgil John Taylor about 1920 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mary's husband Frank moved to Ohio and died there, in University Heights, Cuyahoga County, Ohio on 24 Nov 1929. He died at the age of 76 years, 10 months and 22 days.
Mary Judith died at the age of 37 years, 1 month and 2 days.

NOTE** Record should read that her date of birth was 1858 and not 1898. Record claims she was born, three years after the death date...
UPDATE: Today, 5 Aug 2012 I found the third child of Mary Judith Gilkerson and Frank Burlingame. Probably after the death of her mother, when Mary would have been 5 years old, she was sent to live with her mother's sister, Agnes Gilkerson and her second husband, Andrew Joseph Sauter, in Travis County, Texas. Mary is found living with them, in both the 1900 and 1910 censuses. In January 1920 we find Mary, married with husband David M Moffatt, still living in Travis County, Texas.
