Joseph Henry Burkhart was born in August of 1858 to parents, Thomas Campbell and Margaret Barclay Burkhart. He was called Joe.

Joe Burkhart became engaged to a young lady named May N. Barclay who was the daughter of Andrew Groff and Elmira Bottoms Barclay. Just before they were to be married, May became ill and died. Joe already had the gold engraved band bought for his bride. He later gave the band to his niece, Kate Burkhart. It still remains in the family today. The family story tells that Joe never got over May's death and never married.

Joe Burkhart was a farmer. He lived out his entire life in the old home built by his parents at Oakdale. When his sister, Margaret Christina Burkhart Clark, became a young widow, she moved into the family home with him. He helped to rear her three young children.

Joe Burkhart died in 1917 in Hopkins County, Texas. He would have been about fifty-nine years of age. He was buried in the Nelta Cemetery.
