Re: Henry Burdue of Weston, Wood Co. OH

In Reply to: Henry Burdue of Weston, Wood Co. OH by Robert Burdue of 718

Found various members of the Burdue family in the Wood Co. District Public Library online obituary index. I happened to visit the Wood Co. Library, and I looked up the obits. Henry Burdue was married to Mary Elizabeth (maiden name unknown), and they lived in Norwalk, Ohio (Erie Co.?), where their son George William was born in 1854. When William (they didn't call him by his first name) was about 10, they moved to Weston Twp., Wood Co. They had a daughter Alice b ca 1863, and another son Gilford, who died at age 17. William had at least 2 children, Claude, who apparently never married, and a daughter, who married Don Driver. She was living in Weston Twp. when William died, but may have predeceased her brother, since she was not mentioned in his obit. Alice married Osborn Long, and died in 1956. No children are mentioned in her obituary. Henry's obit mentions that he served in Co.K, 111th O.V.I., also that he was wounded, so he probably has a pension file at the National Archives which may list his wife's maiden name, and his children's names. From what I found in the obituaries, there probably are no living descendants of Henry Burdue, but he may have had other children not mentioned in the obits.
