Please share your information with me. My grandfather is James (Jim) Burke. He, Joby, and Zelby all used the last name BURKE although they are the sons of Greenbury ADKINS. Family history is sketchy, but what I have is that Greenbury (Old Green) had five wives and had a total of 17 children.
He is to have married Ella J. BURKE in 1902. I don't know what happened to Ella, but the children of this union were raised by their maternal grandmother, Malvina DEAN BURKE, hence their decision to use the name BURKE.
I'd love to share information with you! I would love to hear more about the ADKINS.
