Lorenzo Burgar is buried at Riverside Cemetery, Fargo, Cass County, North Dakota, see www.findagrave.com for photo of tombstone. Thought you might be interested.
|Doreen Harvey||RE: Burgar/Burger Family Histories|
Dear Chris, I have tried to contact you several times, and was told you were in the service, thus not available.
I presume that our families in Kansas began comparing notes, and found there was a connection between the families, as I have some obits from Hirams daughters, and they clearly refer to the Burger family as their "cousins".
Knowing this I have concluded that Peter (Burgar) & his wife Ann Nelson, were parents of your George Nelson. They immigrated from New Jersey to Ontario, Canada before 1800, and settled around Welland.
Their son George (he spelled it Jorge when he applied for crown land) married Dorothy Mabee (dau of Lewis Mabee from New York, and a UEL). From what I have learned, they had (I believe 3 daughters) and were living in the Fort Erie area. It appears that either Dorothy died, or perhaps they divorced. I did find them in a census, but not sure the date, without looking at my notes.
However, it is quite believable that he married his second wife in that vicinity...and that being the case, the rest is history. I would love to hear from you and learn more...I have done quite a lot of tracing your family, and I would love to share.

Chris, I took pictures at Clear Creek Cemetery in Sevier, AR- I see that you posted that Henry was actually buried in Manila American Cemetery. I would like to correct mine if it is just "in memory of" in Clear Creek. Thanks

Chris--I too have relatives at the St Luke's Parish cemetery in MD. Last fall I had the opportunity to visit the cemetery, but there are no headstones dating that far back. The staff at the church said that most of the time they were buried at their homesteads that fell within the boundaries of the Parish and so were recorded as being buried at St Luke's. Hope this helps.

Hi Chris. We took a picture of the CM Brown stone today. We didn't notice the extra request of the Covey Family until we got back, but will try to look again on next trip. I saw some setup on here under the Denver Cemetery in Montague County, not sure on that. I have never been there.
