Wow, Ann!What a shining example of coherent, readable research on your part!It's the best I've seen in one place.
We will compare your findings with the information compiled by genealogist Diane Kropp of Houston who researched our line back to, coincidentally, Michael and Barbara from Luetzelflueh (on the Emme River, hence Emmental).But first reading of your account was indeed a pleasure and it rings true.
In addition to your references by George Jones, his book THE GEORGIA DUTCH also mentions many facts about the Burkhalters of colonial Savannah.
Thank you very, very much.
