John Burkhart of Maryland
I am looking for documentation of the parents of John Burkhart.John Burkhart was born in Hagerstown, Maryland in September26, 1787.John served in the war of 1812.He married Rebecca Ann Baltzell March 7, 1816 in Fredericktown, Maryland.
They moved immediately after the wedding for Tennessee where they lived.In 1829 they moved to a plantation in Kentucky.Later they went still further est and settled near Burlington, KY.
The oldest son, Raymond, rode back to Tennessee and married Eliza Wassam on June 22, 1842.The young couple settled in Iowa.
Later, Raymond and his brother, Crill headed west with their family and settled in the Willamete Valley, Oregon.
Crill heads east and accompanies his parents (and families) west.
John Burkhart died September 30, 1856 and his wife Rebecca died July 1, 1884.They were buried at Riverside Cemetary.
I found reference to Peter Burkhart and Anna Zimmerman as parents of John Burkhart.I would like to try to verify this.I also welcome contacts, stories and new Burkhart cousins.I would love to see some family photographs as well.
