Burt - Jenkins - Cohee: Ohio, Indiana, Missouri: The Burt - Price Mystery
For anyone researching the families of the following siblings:
Samuel M. Burt m. Mary Summers 1866 Indiana;
Hannah L. Burt m. Mahlon S. Jenkins 1850 Indiana;
Margaret A. Burt m. Samuel B. Cohee 1854 Indiana
I pulled the Civil War pension file for Samuel M. Burt today.Apparently the three Burt children listed above are missing a sister, who may have died just before or shortly after the onset of the Civil War.The pension file also states that the three siblings listed above did not have another brother.From the pension records we know that their mother, although not named in the pension files, lived well into her seventies.
Many of us have seen the names William Alexander Burt and Anna Price repeatedly cited as the parents of the above children.Unfortunately, no solid source reference has been provided for their designation as parents.I don't believe that we can with certainty designate William Alexander Burt and Anna Price as their parents until we do have a solid source reference.
So, if you know who the missing Burt daughter is or you actually have a reference for the parentage of the Burt children listed above, would you please reply to this posting and share your source with us?As a descendant of Hannah Burt Jenkins, I will be more than happy to share whatever information I have.
