Re: Lewis A Burdett/Burdette WV family names
Unfortunatley the tombstones for John & Elizabeth Burdett only say mother and father. Delilah (Burdett) Hicks is 20 years old on the the 1850 census of Braxton Co. 1850 census Nicholas Co. lists John Berdett age 49 his wife Elizabeth age 47 son William age 12 daughter Elizabeth age 9. Son Daniel is in his own home and is age 35 in 1860 with wife Susan age 30 children are listed William age 15 - James R. 13 - John 10 - Mary J. 8 - Harry G. 6 - Rebecca F. 4 - John's son William Married Martha Brown and on 1870 census Nicholas Co. is 33 wife Martha E. is 21 children are Alice A. 6 - Angeline 5 - Eliza 6months -- Daniel's widow Susan Buredtt 1870 census is 40 with children Mary 18 - Henry 15 - Rebecca 13 - John Burdett 1870 census Nicholas Co. is 70 wife Elizabeth is 68 and granddaughter Margaret Hicks is 11 - 1860 Census Nicholas Co. for John Burditt Age 62 Wife Elizabeth is 57 Son William B. Burditt is 23 Daughter Elizabeth Burditt 19 and lists James 10 - Owen 8 - Armstrong 6 - Joseph 4 - Margaret 6 months all listed as Burditt's. James, Owen, Armstrong, Joseph and Margaret are all Delilah (Burdett) Hicks's children and grandfather John listed them as Burdett's following census in 1870 these children are all listed as Hicks's. John Burdett father of my Delilah was the son of William Burdett of Monroe Co. who was the son of James Burdett of Culpepper Co. Va. William was married twice 1stto Sarah Cornwell and had the following children Isham Burdett, Elizabeth Burdett, Margaret Burdett, Miles Burdett, Willis Burdett, Rachel Burdett, William Burdett, Archibald Burdett, My John Burdett, Alexander Burdett, Ruth Burdett,Eliza Burdett.2nd wife of William ? Scott and had children Harvey Burdett, Lewis Burdett, Clarkson Burdett. I know who they all married my John's brother Willis Burdett married Nancy Boone daughter of Jonn Boone who's uncle wasCol. Daniel Boone. Most of the Burdett graves in Nicholas Co. only have names and no dates.
