I am looking for relatives with connections to the Burkepile's in Mitchell Co, KS. My great grandfather, Jacob B. and Mary Ann (Ricedorff) Burkepile migrated to Mitchell Co. from Mannsville, Perry Co, PA in the spring of 1880. They had the following children: Hannah Jane (my grandmother) m. James Edward Hunter, James William, Charles Edward, Sarah Catherine, Harry Sylvester, Susan Ellen and James Calvin. I have names of ancestors but am interested in two things: (1) documentation of Jacob's ancestors and (2) other family ties with names that may be spelled differently, i.e., Berkebile or even Perkeypile and their various phoentic variations. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Barbara
