George Berkepile of Perry Co, PA
Am looking for the possible connection of George BURKEPILE family with the Jacob B. BURKEPILE family of Perry County, Pennsylvania.On the 1870 Perry Co, PA census were:George (age 44), Mary (age 32), Jonathan (age 21), David (age 19), Benjamin (age 13) and Jerome (age 11)..all born in PA.From the Mannsville Lutheran Church on 25 Mar 1877 George, Mary, Jerome & Benjamin removed to St. Paul's Evang. Luth. Church, Blain Pastorate.I find part of the family (George, age 70; Jerome, age 36)on the 1895 Kansas State, Beloit Twp., Mitchell Co. census.George d. in Mitchell Co, KS on 26 Jun 1895 and Mary d. in Mitchell Co, KS on 27 Jun 1893.
Are they in any way connected with my Jacob B. BURKEPILE family who were in Perry Co, PA until about 1877, having gone to Cumberland County until March 1880 when they moved to Solomon Rapids Twp., Mitchell Co, KS and are on the 1880 U.S. census there?
Jacob B. is a descendant of Henry David & Hannah Jane (YOCKEY)BURKEPILE (parents) and John George and Barbara (MESSMORE)BURKEPILE (grandparents).
