All the information I have on Oliver Burdett is found on the following webpage.Note there are also pictures of the Burdett family found on this website and more information as well compiled by my cousin Norris Burdette.
"Oliver Burdett, the father of Oliver H., was a native of Northampton, England, born in 1819 and at the age of nineteen came to the United States and at once located in Mercer county, but before he settled permanently to farming made two trips, to New Orleans on coal barges and served in the Civil war as a member of the Fifty-fifth Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. By his marriage to Miss Abijah A. Sewell (Daughter of Clement Sewall and Sarah Myers from Maryland, born 1823, died 15 Dec 1853 in Jackson county.Iowa) he became the father of John Clement, Oliver Henry (of this sketch), William Singrey, Mary Ellen, Sarah Ann, and Amos, who died in infancy.
Oliver Burdett’s second marriage was to Mrs. Mary (Huson) Key, the widow of Samuel Key, and the four children born to them were as follows : Emma May, who married William North, a merchant of North’s Mills, this county, and they have one daughter; Charles Elmer, a merchant of Stoneboro, who married Elizabeth West; Frank Lesley, a farmer of Worth township, who married Ellen Osborne and is the father of four children; and Lester Herman, a farmer of Jackson township, who by his marriage to Susan Smith became the father of four sons and a daughter. Oliver Burdett, the father of these families, which have, added so much to the good manhood and womanhood of Mercer county, died April 10, 1876, in his fifty-fourth year. Although a stanch Republican. popular and honored, the deceased had no Political or public ambitions. His religious faith was that of Presbyterianism."
I am searching for information about Oliver Burdettlife while he lived in Northhampton, England and the geneology of this family while in England before he traveled to the States when he was 19.Any information, leads to follow and/or photos would be greatly appreciated.
I have more information on children, etc than is found in the database. You have his wife listed as Ann, from your family's knowledge was that her given name or a derivation.See information at the website I found below.
Oliver Burdett is my Great Great Great Grandfather and my family geneology is very important to me so I am trying to track down and follow back my family tree to provide more information to the Burdett Family at our reunion in July of 2002.What I have found thus far is incredible and very exciting.Any help you could give me would be most greatly appreciated.
