Does anyone know the parents of Jeptha H. Burkhalter of Georgia?Apparently his mother was named Christiana.Here is what I have thus far: Born:August 20, 1817(where? probably GA) Married: Ellender Purvis June 10, 1847 in Telfair Co, GA Died:July 6, 1878 in Montgomery Co, GA Obituary:"Dodge County Newspaper Clippings" Vol. 1, 1873-1892 / Thursday, July 11, 1878 Cause of death:Lung Cancer
Jeptha & Ellender moved to Florida between 1848-50. 1850 Hamilton County, FL census shows: Jeptha (age 31) Elender (age 30) John M. (son age 2) Jeptha's brother, Henry, lives nextdoor with their mother, Christiana. (1850 census) In 1870 census, they are back in Georgia.
I could truly use some help here.I've hit a wall. Thanks greatly! Judy White - decendent
