" Julia B., mother, 76 wd, b MS, AL, GA

On Find a Grave site Sophia Eugenia West Williams is listed in Glenwood Cemetery, but not her brother. His DC says he's buried there.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- enter West, Thomas, born Louisiana, 1831 + or - five years, spouse Julia. Someone has more information on the family. Maybe there's enough there to tell if this is your Julia Burgess????

Happy Hunting (^_^)
