Nathan, Thank you for sharing.
I found this excerpt in the Book Mechanicsville, by Melanie Nistad. It is from a letter from Mary Reams to Thomas Jefferson Barnes, genealogist, dated March 29, 1948.
Melanie Garrett Nistad, Mechanicsville, Page 56
"Susan Burger who married Dr. Barnes was my motherís first cousin. My motherís father was Samuel E. Burger. He and Abraham Burger were brothers. Jacob Burger was their father. This is interesting. Cousin Susan lived at Tracy City when I taught there in 1901-1902. She had several grandchildren in school. Earl Barnes and his brother were in my room, I had first grade."
