On www.findagrave.com there is a James David Burks listed as buried in Hopewell Cemetery in Ashville, St. Clair Co., AL who was born in 1881 and died 23 Jan. 1929. His wife, Angeline, is also listed there. To ascertain who his parents were, I suggest that you write to the Alabama Dept. of Health for a copy of his Death Certificate. Go to the website www.adph.org and click on "How do I order a Death Certificate?" On the next screen, click on "Death Certificates". On the next screen, click on "Download Mail-in Application". Print a copy of the application. Fill out the application, giving his full name, the date and county of his death and the name of his wife. Leave the line for name of parents blank since you don't know who his parents were. The cost for the Death Certificate is $15.00. Good luck.
