Frederick was married to Charlotta Goerke. They lived and raised their first five children in Hanover, Germany. Fred and family immigrated to the United States, arriving in New York aboard the ship 'Hermann' on September 16, 1871. From there, they proceeded to Waverly, Iowa where they settled for a time. While there, two more children were born to them. The 1880 census has Frederick and family in Mount Ayr, Kansas. Fred is recorded working as a farmer. That year, their last child, Augusta, was born. The child died in infancy. The mother, Charlotta, may have died in childbirth or shortly after as she is not found in any records beyond this point. Fred moved his family to St. Joseph, Missouri in 1881. While here he found employment with one of the railroads.

Children of Frederick and Charlotta Burgess are:

Julia- born 1863
Minnie D.- born 1864
Dora J.- born 1867
Sophia D.- born 1869
William- born 1871
