Dear Lynda, Thank you for the information. Even though the Pollocks are an in-law line for me, I have two children who are interested in their ancestral roots. The Burditt I have is their grandmother--Mary Ethel. Do you know any of the places any of the events took place? Would you happen to know anything of the Goddard side? If you want you could drop a line in the mail to 102 W. Kingwood, Lovington,NM 88260. Thanks again, I was coming up against a lot of brick walls, and now that I have found how to get along with the computer those walls are being chipped away.
