my parents are Jack Burke and Nina Phipps. Jack is the son of Jim Burke and Mattie Hillman. Jim is the son of Greenberry Adkins and Ella J. Burke. I do not know what happened to Ella, but I do know that Jim and his brother Joby were raised by Ella's parents, James Lemuel Burk and Malvina Dean. Both Jim and Joby took the last name Burke and dropped Adkins. Family history is that Greenberry Adkins was married 7 or so times and fathered around 15 children.
