Harriet J Burch
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 18, 1860, USA
Death: May 25, 1862
Monroe County
Indiana, USA

Harriet J. Burch was the daughter of S.M. and M.E. Burch. She lived 1 yr. 10 mos. and 7 days. She died May 25 in 1862.

*********************************************************

The only possible candidates I have found for Harriet's parents are Stephen M. and Mary Elizabeth [NEWKIRK] BURCH.

Stephen first appears in 1850 as a fifteen year old farm laborer on the farm of Josiah and Nancy Baker. I have been unable to determine any relationship between Stephen M Burch and his employers and I have not been able to figure out the identity of Stephen Burch's parents.

On Oct 27 1859, Stephen married Mary Elizabeth NEWKIRK, the daughter of Henry and Hannah [WAGGONER] NEWKIRK TAGGERT. Mary's mother father was deceased and her mother twice widowed at the time of her marriage to Stephen. After the marriage Stephen and Mary resided with Mary's mother and her dependent siblings.

Mary and Stephen had two other daughters besides Harriet:
Theresa BURCH b. abt 1865
Hannah BURCH b. abt 1867

Stephen died sometime after 1870. Mary remarried to Samuel T. Osman 19 Apr 1878.

I would be curious to know if anyone knows where Hannah was buried or when she died.

I agree with your work. I am a descendant of Hannah Waggoner and James Weddel Taggart.
