Bio and Links
Bio Photo I ran across findagrave several years ago, and as I have a love for history, and finding out what part my ancestors played in it.
And have been continuing genealogical work began by my Grandfather Grant Anderson Pillow.
This gives my the opportunity to share with my extended family, the rich history that our family has shared in.
Everyone in the Memorial's that I have put up, or manage is related to me. And I am always willing to share what I find with any of my extended family.

Have a Great Day.

Michael E. Burk

Georgie Stalcup
My sister and I walked the Bee Cemetery in Johnston Co, OK yesterday. On close inspection of the stone for Georgie it appears her death date is 9/23/1900 and not 9/8/1900. This would make sense if Baby Georgie was born on 9/18/1900. The stone is broken and laying sideways.

Samuel Newton Smith
Hi there: I understand your concern regarding his birthdate, but do you realize the Mary Ann (sister) connected could be incorrect? This sister is not listed on the 1860 census in Giles, Tenn. If she was born in 1857 she would be on this census. Also, the 1900 census, Samuel himself states he was born in 1857. The death cert. states 1857 as well as the cemetery records.
For these reasons, I will leave the birthdate as 1857, but I will make a "note" on the memorial as to the discrepancies in dates.

Napoleon Bonaparte White
Thanks, Michael, on the information on Napoleon B. White. He may be some kin to my husband, whose mother's maiden name was Watson. Her grandmother, Thressia Elcie Tucker Crafts Find A Grave Memorial# 91085529, is buried next to Napoleon White. I understand she was some kin to Napoleon. Her daughter, Beryl Josephine Crafts Watson, was married to Joseph Robert Watson. They are all buried in Westlawn Cemetery in Henryetta. They lived in a small community south of Henryetta called Ryal where Joseph Robert had a general store which he operated until the 1960's I think. My husband may be able to tell us more. I will ask him. Anyway, thanks so much, I will continue to seek information on them.

RE: Sarah Elizabeth Lawson 'nee Watson
Thanks Cousin:) Yes, me/Julie is related to the Lawson side of this I guess you & I are very distant cousins! Thanks for all the info you've posted.....Jerry can't believe the first thing I wanted to do when we got home was get online & start filling in info on the Watson side! Ha! But he knows how very addictive this stuff is:) I just connected Sarah with her husband many interesting stories with both sides of this family! Now I'm really intrigued with who was Minerva Pitts' first husband! So I'm digging around.....even though I'm not related to her......:) Do you live in Oklahoma?? One of my sisters and her husband live in Vian, the eastern part of the's HIS hometown......

Well, dang, Michael! Glad to know you're still out there. We first connected, what? Maybe 15 years ago almost?

Great job on Wash Dorman's biography. I'm going to copy it and add it to his file on my family tree. You will be credited, of course. Hope you've gotten all my research info on Allen and the North Carolina connection. It's really a done deal now that I have the official court records to prove everything.

I've slowed down but am still plugging along. Just spent the afternoon doing Dorman research in Twiggs County. I don't think we're ever done.

Keep up the good work.
