I have been to your website and have found lots of connections to the Inks that are related to me.My great grandmother was Zelphia A. Inks and she was married to William Burd.Their son Harry Burd was my grandfather.I am looking for any information on the Inks/Burd connection.
I have my mother's bible and she listed Zelphia in there.I also have photos of Zelphia and Matilida Patterson Inks, married to Thomas.I was able to get these through my Aunt Jean Burd-McDaniel.
I thought somewhere along the searches I have done that I had come across an Inks Cemetery but now since I can't find it I may have been mistaken.I would really like to find out any information on this part of the line.If you would like copies of the photos I have I would be glad to send them to you.Below I have listed how I actually connect to the Inks line.
Thomas D Inks married Mary Matilda Patterson Inks Zelphia Anna Inks borm 6/21/1844 and married William Burd (Bird) 3/31/1864 and they had the following children: William F Burd (Bird) b abt 1866 and m Virginia B Hayes Nancy E. Burd (Bird) b abt 1868 Mary M. Burd (Bird) b abt 1870 Zilphia Jo burd (Bird) b abt 1872 and ma. Francis F. Hornby Sarah A. Burd (Bird) b abt 1874 Ada or Ida Bird (Burd) b abt 1876 married a Davis (I also have a pic of them) John H. Bird (Burd) b abt 1878 All of these are listed in the 1880 census then I have 2 more that never show in the census. Harry J Bird (Burd) b 9/2/1885 and married Mary Ellen Piper b 8/29/1891 and died 4/4/1980. Harry died 12/4/1963 in PAThese were my grandparents.I have more information on them if you would like, I can send it to you.
They also had another child in between John and Harry.His name was Charles N. Bird (Burd) b 6/10/1882 and died I believe abt 1920-1930.I have the obit but have to find where Iworte the date of death down.This was also a child of William and Zelphia Bird (Burd).Please note the spelling of Bird to Burd was changed somewhere along the line to Burd due to a family dispute.My mother who was Harry's daughter and William and Zelphia's granddaughter spelt the name as Burd.My best information for the change was a falling out due to drinking problems on the Burd side.
My mothers bible listes Williams Burd's wife as Zelphia as listed above but my grandfather Harrys obit lists them as William and Althea.When you look at Charles' obit they list his parents as William and Anna but brothers are the same.
I dont' mean to be so long winded with this but I am trying to put together a book for my brothers and sistes (7 of them) before Christmas this year, and I am trying to cover all branches of the family.Any help you can be would be greatly appreaciated.
