Seeking info on parents of Laura Burke Saxon. She was born in Milam , Telfair County. Believe her maternal grandparents were Thomas (b. about 1815) and Isabel (b. about 1818) of Screven. I can not find Laura on any census records in GA!

Laura Burke married Joseph Edward Saxon about 1872 in Richmond Co.,GA and they had 17 children. The youngest was my dad, John Henry Saxon. He was born in Harrison, close to Sandersville in Washington Co., GA. They also lived in Richmond, Jenkins and then Effingham Counties in GA.

Laura and Joseph are buried in Elkins Cemetery in Pineora, GA.

Would appreciate any help.
