Re: John Holden died 1844 Sabine Parish Louisiana
Hello Calvin. The Burks lines have many twists, turns and dead ends. I have been working it on and off for many years, and still have lots of dead ends and unconfirmed theories. I am descended from Daniel Burks (1822-1895), son of Roland Burks and Virginia Jane Warden. I suspect that your Mary Ann Burks was my Daniel's sister, but have yet to confirm that. I have encountered numerous links to the Holden line, including Daniel's wife may have been a Holden. It is all quite confusing and vague, but there are too many references and possible links to ignore. If you get this message and are still working on the Burks and Holden lines, please reach out and we'll see what we might share. Thanks.
