States: Georgia: Harris
I would appreciate receiving whatever information you may have on Jeremiah Burkhalter (born 1774 in SC) and his son, Dionysius, born in 1802 Edgefield District, SC and died in 1854 Tallahatchie Cty, MS. I am trying to piece together Dionysius' whereabouts before 1841 -- did he ever live in the state of Alabama, and if so, which county? Further, where was Jeremiah in the 1850 and 1860 federal census -- in what county and state was he enumerated? In 1840, he lived in Harris County, GA, found on p. 273. Two of Jeremiah's daughters lived and married in Harris County -- Emma Maranda married Tandy Daniel and Temperance Amanda married John William Moon, Jr. I found an 88-year old Jeremiah Buckhalter in the 1850 Marion County, GA census living with a "Gilly Golden" -- any relation to Eliza Ann Golden, daughter of Reuben Golden and wife of Dionysius Burkhalter? Is this the same "Jeremiah"? On Dionysius' 1855 estate probate papers was noted that the estate paid a "Jeremiah Burkhalter" $1,890 -- does anyone know what this was for, and again, was this Jeremiah also the father of Dionysius? May I assume correctly that the William Burkhalter, age 64, on the 1850 Tallahatchie County, MS census was the brother of Jeremiah and uncle to Dionysius? Does anyone have a copy of the probate court papers for Jeremiah Burkhalter who died in Coosa Cty, AL 1865? I would appreciate a copy and am willing to pay for copying and postage. In advance, thank you for whatever you can share on these Burkhalter men.
