Benjamin Burket/ Burkett was the son of Solomon Burkett and Mary Brehm. Both families were in Perry Co., Ohio before 1840. Mary Brehm was the sister of my ggggrandfather Samuel Brehm. Two of Samuel's sisters married Burkett men, who were sons of Johannes (John) George Burkhardt/ Burkett and Mary Catharine Fuchs/ Fox. I am working on this branch of the tree right now, so I can help with Benjamin's siblings, etc. From what I know so far, it would seem that Benjamin probably died before 1860 because I can't find him on that census, just wife and children and possibly his mother Mary. Mary died in 1869 and she must have left for Kansas. Sarah is on the 1870 census with her children. If I can help let me know.
