|I am looking for descendants of the Burke/Dimitry families who settled in Louisiana,before and after Louisiana's entry into the US.|
The family of William and Ellen Lee Burke settled in what was then part of St Martin Parish(now Iberia) in approximately the 1830s.
The Dimitry/Dragon families were settlers of the La territory in the 18th century.
Also looking for the Mills family of Charleston, and the family of General John Smith of Virginia.

|phillipsp||RE: Burke/Dimitry families|
So nice to hear from you. Yes, I'm Michael's oldest daughter. Did we meet at my grandmother's wake? I was so thrilled when Papa D. sent me all those portraits of the Ruth and Dimitry families. I didn't know they existed. Thank you so much for making copies.
I was contacted by the husband of a descendant of Margaret Celeste Ruth Dimitry Norvell (daughter of Enoch and Virginia Ruth). He is the one who has the original portrait of Alexander Dimitry. I do have a larger version that he sent me via email that I could send you, if you'd like. Otherwise I can try to contact him and see if he would be willing to make copies.
It is a shame that the Dimitry family tomb has not been kept in better shape. I have never seen it in person, but I would love to one day.
