Hi, MaryJean!

Actually, I found our Burk family spelled Burk, Burke, Bark, Burks, Buck, and, on one census, Buske (probably a transcription error - that one took FOREVER to find because I had to look at all the original images for the county).

John L. and Dicey were in Coweta Co., GA, in 1850, and in Tallapoosa Co., AL, in 1860. I have not been able to find them on any census after that, although we have found most of their children. John and Dicey were married in Morgan Co., GA, on March 25, 1830. Morgan Co. is the home of a large branch of the Awtry/Autry family who, unfortunately, used the same first names over and over. Terri and I are not positive who Dicey's parents were, but we are working on proving our theory. The same is true for John L's parents.

One of Dicey's brothers went to Texas, but we have not found John L. or Dicey there. This is another thing we are still working on.

As you probably know, several of Mary Burk Ogletree's siblings ended up in the Talladega Co. area - her sister Tiney (Artemisa?) lived with Turner and Mary, while sisters Amanda and Delia (Nancy C.) lived next door. Brother John W. and his wife (parents of Bessie, who lived with Turner and Mary) are buried in the same cemetery as Turner and Mary Sanders Ogletree. Frances M., the oldest brother, also lived in Talladega Co. and owned a good bit of land there.
