  • Notes 
    • The letter from Josia Burk to David F. Burk does not give her name -- only says "Jersey Girl"

      From:  ‘Father of the Burks of America” by Harry Douglas Stewart

      "Francis married Eunice Marsh, the young daughter of a German immigrant physician and moved thereafter to the small community of Pughton, West Virginia, just over the Pennsylvania border. Francis and Eunice had a family of six children, Of these, our concern, genealogically, is with James. Outliving her husband by many years, Eunice, having left the United States, journeyed north to join her Empire Loyalist sons in Upper Canada and died on the homestead farm of James and was buried there." [6]
