The study of my Family Tree

April 8, 2010 – Alabama Cemeteries April 8, 2010

So today I discovered an Alabama Connection to the family.    A branch of the Burdick family that settled down in Alabama from the Spafford, NY Area.    This is a new state for me to add to my Cemetery Listing so I was excited.  It would be fun to find us in all 50 states.  Who knows maybe I’ll find that eventually.    So here is the info on the Alabama Connection:

Burdick Family Cemetery, Houston, AL (Winston Co.)  From Arley Town Hall go north on County Rd. 41 .9 mile, turn left on Houston Rd and go 4.9 miles. Turn left in front of old jailhouse then immediately left on the dirt road. Cemetery is .4 mile on the left.

    I researching my family, in Nortonville, Ks. I found where I am related to Burdicks and found many tomestones with that name.
    It is a very small town North East part of Ks, between Topeka and Atchison. They also have a very small cemetary of 7 tomestones,
    for the 7th Day Baptists church-did not see Burdicks there. But if you have not found this in the past you may want to check it out.
    Good luck.
