I will be happy to check again. They aren't have to look through index cards, so hers could be filed incorrectly. I can always check deeds if I can't find it.

find-a-grave # 151880662
Thank you for your suggestion on the Son of Willis and Texanna Booker. I used his assumed
first name when I created My grandfather, William Melton Booker's memorial. The memorial
that you mentioned (find-a-grave # 151880662), is not an actual grave. It is a memorial
marker placed there by the Booker Family years ago after his death. William Melton Booker
is actually buried in the memorial in Texas.#144260423.

Long story made short, William left home in Alabama to avoid the Army draft for WW1.
changed his name, married my grandmother in Mississippi and they came on to Red River
County, Texas some time around 1917-18. They raised a family there. William M. Booker,
aka Tom Smith, was killed by his son in 1939
and was quickly buried in Slate Cemetery.
The Booker family back in Alabama was not pleased with the events that occurred and
hence they had their own marker place in their cemetery. Thank you very much for your
helping though.
You must have a sharp eye.

Robert H. Goodman Correction
Thanks for noticing the errors on Robert H. Goodman's entry. There were two errors, he was incorrectly linked to the wrong parent. His father is David M. Goodman, but, also, his mother was incorrectly written as Lucinda and it was Louisianna Hoops instead.

I've fixed both issues now. Are you related to this family?

RE: McDonald Creson (Find-A-Grave 117750247)
Thank you so much for your corrections. I believe someone must have provided the parents of McDonald Creson but I should have checked them more closely before approving the edits. I usually do check them before approving, but I obviously didn't notice the year of birth for the person submitted as McDonald's father. Anyway, I think I've completed the edits you sent and made the correction to the father. Please take a look at the memorials and let me know if additional changes/corrections are needed. Thank you.

You have requested that I make edits to this memorial. This person is not related to me, I would be happy to transfer management of this memorial to you. Please advise.

Anthony T Burdg
Copy from History Hunter's page in response to your question:

Good Evening Cousin,
I totally agree that the hardest part in linking the various wings of this family is the spelling of the last name. I have encountered so many different spellings, which makes it hard tracking people over time, but it seems the ones that you have in the subject line are the predominant ones. You might be wondering why I said cousin. Judith Smith Burdg was my paternal 5th Great Grand Aunt. I am descended from her brother, Anthony Smith.
As far as the question on Anthony Tunis Burdge, I have been able to piece together that he was the son of Anthony and Sarah Vail Burdg. I dont have a single piece of paper that lists Anthony and Sarah as his parents but I would give the accuracy of my research a 80% rating. It is more a accumulation of all the records that I have found. In the 1830 census, there is a single 5-9 yo wm living in the household in Lemon Twp with Anthony and Sarah.
I dont know much about his first wife, Caroline, but I know that she did pass away in 1851 and she is buried in Butler County, Ohio. There is a 9 yo boy, Jacob Burdge, living with Anthony in the 1860 census in Muscatine County, Iowa. I lose track of Jacob after this. He doesnt appear in the 1870 census and I havent been able to confirm a death before 1870 or anything. He simply disappears.
As far as Caroline appearing as a sibling of Anthony, it is because her parents are listed as Anthony and Sarah Vail Burdg. I would like to poke your brain so more about your family because you are the first Burdg lineal descendant that I have had contact with and I am trying to trace all the branches of my Smith family tree. I hope that this helps. Please feel free to email me and we can discuss in more detail.

Happy Holidays,

RE: Anthony Tunis and Caroline Burdg
Thanks for letting me know of this.
The Burdge-Burdg are my family members. Still not sure if Caroline is the child or spouse (probably).

I'm trying to find a marriage license in Butler County to see if she and Anthony married.

Also I did not link her to # 70079260 because I wasn't sure if he was the one or if # 58470844 is the correct Anthony for the parent link. The family spelled their last names the 2 different ways.

Also Rootsweb has the Anthony # 70079260 listed as child but I often find mistakes on the site.
I am contacting the other contributor to see if he has documentation about all of this
Thanks so much and Have a Great Day

parent links
Links for parents have to be added on the children's pages, so you'll need to send the info for Carlton and Emma Gibson through the Edit tab on Robert's page.
