I am researching the family of Henry BURKETTE born May 13, 1771 in NC; he married Elizabeth RINKER on December 25, 1793 and died September 1817 in Mongtomery County, OH.
Henry is said to descend from Switzerland. Henry is supposedly the son of Jehu, the son of Jonathan, the son of Emanuel. I have no proof of this however.
Henry and Elizabeth had a son George BURKETT born November 22, 1797; married Catherine MARTIN in Dayton, OH on April 14, 1828. Their daughter, Mary born August 18, 1836 in Elkhart, IN married Samuel George BEACH.
