Goshen, IN USA - Wednesday, December 6, 2000
I'm so excited, and as Maria Johnson just wrote to me (and gave me your
website), I've apparently been bitten by the genealogy bug.
My name is Jacquelyn Diehl (Jackie) and I live in Goshen, Indiana. My
mother is Ina Elizabeth (Burdick) Ewers, from Meeker, Colorado, daughter
of John Vernon Burdick, son of Alden Burdick, grandson of Alden Burdick.
My mother, Ina, has only two sisters, Katherine and Vera, and herself
still living from John Vernon Burdick and Elizabeth Hodges Burdick (their
parents). I haven't gone through your pages yet - due to time, but plan
to ASAP. I will present to you whatever information I can get from Mom.
I'm so excited to find this information. This all began with my
daughter's project for her 3rd grade class... Just thought I'd touch
base with you in the meantime.

I may not be related but hope you can help. Maybe someone in
the Burdick clan might know something about this Parker and Emely Burdick. I
found this Burdick web page while taking a break doing my Skinner family
research. I did find a Burdick that may have a Skinner connection. (Either
as a relative or employer.) On the 1850 Elkhart Co. IN census on-line I
found. ( I do not think it is the one Parker everyone references)
Household #, Family #, Name, Age, Sex, Occup, VAL, POB,
973, Burdick, Emely, 60, F, , $150, NH
973, Burdick, Parker, 52, M, Farmer, $1500, NY
973, Skinner, O.B., 34, M, Laborer, , NY
I am pretty sure the O.B. Skinner and his older brother Joseph C. Skinner and
his family were together in 1850 in Elkhart, Co. We did find them both on
the CENSUS. From the entry on the May 2000 news letter I see a Burdick family
has some roots in Washington Co., NY.
Now the part where Mr. Wood and Mr. Holmes come in. We have a copy of a will
of their father, Joseph, listing sons Joseph C. and Orinn B. (O. B) Skinner's
mother as Emily from Washington Co. NY, dated 1842. We do not know her
maiden name. But I was wondering if the Emely listed in the 1850 CENSUS is
our Emily who could had remarried a Parker Burdick after 1842 and moved to
Indiana as my O.B. Skinner appears to have lived or worked on the Burdick
farm there. Thank you very much and we are looking forward to your comments.
Maybe some of the Burdicks can have a new relative to the "Who's That List?"

Ft. Lupton, CO USA - Thursday, November 30, 2000
Just found you today. Someone had told me about this site, but have been
tied up with holiday preparations and unable to look until today. What a
pleasant surprise!!! Here's my lineage:
Robert-1, Samuel-2, Thomas-3, Thomas-4, Allen-5, Jonathan A.-6, Barnet-7,
Henry E.-8, Mary Eliza (Burdick) Schmucker-9, Arthur Burdick Schmucker-10,
E. Darlene (Schmucker) Flentie-11, and me, Beverly Flentie DePriest-12. I
have a daughter, Jennifer Wolff -13 and she has a son, Mason Tyler
I know virtually nothing of the people after Robert (1) until I get to
Arthur Burdick Schmucker (10), my grandfather (certainly no one to brag
about!). If anyone would like to offer additional information, I'd be
forever in your debt. Thank you.
Thom Carlson <email@example.com>
Vinton, IA USA - Thursday, November 30, 2000
I was wondering if you could direct me to anyone who knows
of Parker Burdick, b. 1798 NY, d. Elkhart Co, IN. In the 1850 census of
Elkhart Co, he is listed along with Emily (?), b. 1790 in NH, and O.B.
Skinner, b. 1816.
I know that Orrin B. Skinner's mother's name was Emily, so she may have
married Parker as her second husband. I know as well that Orrin was born
in Washington Co, NY, where there were a bunch of Burdicks, so she may have
married Parker there. Of course, Orrin may simply have known the Burdicks
from Washington Co, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed, since I'm a
descendant of Orrin's brother Joseph C.

Fort Collins, CO USA - Wednesday, November 29, 2000
Just found your web site and it's great!! Here's how my husband
Bob fits into the Burdick puzzle:
Robert and Wanda McCarty KRAJICEK (us)
James and Leona Lucille STEWART Krajicek
Lloyd Elsworth and Lola Ruth McDermott STEWART
Alza Mora and Mamie Remembrance BURDICK Stewart
Amos Rogers and Martha Ann Spencer BURDICK
Joseph and Polly Remembrance Stillman BURDICK
Henry and Judith Maxson BURDICK
Ezekiel and Amey Downing BURDICK
Hubbard and Hannah Maxson BURDICK
Robert and Ruth Hubbard BURDICK
Do you know any others who share this particular Burdick lineage?
I'd appreciate any help you can give me. I've just recently put this
together so hope it's accurate. Bob's great grand-parents were among
the first homesteaders in Scotia County and Greeley County, Nebraska
and Bob's grandparents lived in the Grand Island, Hall County, NE
area where Bob's mother was born. I'd be happy to share what I've put together,
if you're interested. Please let me know.

Basking Ridge, NJ USA - Friday, November 24, 2000
Hello - Luckily, I have inadvertently stumbled on to this web site and
am thrilled. I am a descendant of the Adin Burdick line, and have my
genealogy pretty well in line. I have recently returned from a trip to
Stonington, Ct., was lucky enough to get a map of area cemeteries,
and treked thru the woods to find an old Burdick cemetery. It was
a rather exciting moment for me and of course has stirred my curiosity
and imagination as to what life was like in the early days there and exactly
where the early Burdicks lived.
I had been in the area (Stonington and Westerly) a few years ago and
done some research and found the book of Robert Burdick of Rhode Island
and was able to get a lot of info from that. Maybe I
could fill in some of the latest "blanks" from our line of the family.
I am thrilled at how many
Burdicks there are and so interested in the history of the "clan"
Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

Meriden, CT USA - Wednesday, November 15, 2000
I am Robert William Burdick (pretty common amongst Burdicks)
Look at all the Burdicks! I am from Meriden, CT the son of Edgar William
Burdick Jr., grandson of Edgar Burdick Sr.
I have heard that the famiily comes from Rhode Island by way of England. I
once saw a genealogy (I was very young) done by an Archie Burdick of Rhode
Island on Burdicks. I have not seen it since. I believe Archie was a priest.
Trying to put the puzzle together.

Florida's Gulf Coast USA - Wednesday, November 1, 2000
I am a direct descendent of Robert Burdick (1630 - 1692) and Ruth Hubbard,
and quite probably Thomas Burdett (1507 - 1555) and Elizabeth Cockaine.
There is some evidence we can trace the family even earlier, however the
genealogy does get mistier.
My cousin, Dick Shaw and I have been actively persuing our genealogy,
our mothers were born as Burdicks but their married names are Ransom and
Shaw. If you would like to exchange info, please advise me via email.
My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I live on the Gulf coast and my
cousin Dick is in Bradenton, Florida, for the winter months but is
without his computer. Any information that you offer will be forwarded
to him via snail mail, and his response will be either thru snail mail
or direct if you will supply your home address.
We would be pleased to supply any missing links in your Burdick genealogy.
If you are interested in exchange of information please let me know via email.

Ohio USA - Wednesday, November 1, 2000
I am looking for information on a Harriet Burdick married 1850 in Summit
County OH to a John Dundon. They lived in Ohio for awhile, then moved to
Champaign Co., IL. They are listed as some of the early pioneers of that
area in IL. I am assuming they divorced because it lists both of them and
says "former wife of J Dundon", he is still living, so probably divorced.
Harriet Burdick b 1825 OH died 1864 IL she is buried with a sister in IL.
Caroline Burdick b 1840 OH died 1869 29 y.o. Harriet was or might have
been married before to Darwin Rathbun in 1844.
Do you have any information on these people or their parents so we can

Hi, or should I say Hi Cousins! I enjoyed looking at the Burdick Web page.
Some of the information will be useful in putting my page together. I
am decended from many of Robert and Ruth Burdick's children. So far, I
have found lines decended from Naomi, Deborah, Benjamin Tacy and Hubbard.
The name Tacy is passed down through the women until it reaches my Third
Great Grandmother Clarissa Tacy Welch.

I was born and raised in Westerly R.I. and still live in the area. I came across
your site and found it very interesting and informative. I have been working on
my family history for a long time and so far on my father's side I can trace my
relatives back to the early 1800's, but on his mother's side (Barber) I have
gone back to the early 1500's. I didn't know of the book written by N. Johnson
until I read it on your site, I will have to find it and read it. Please fell free to
e-mail me if you like. Thanks for the info.

Hello cousins. We live in Denton. Have been here 10 years after living in Arlington
for 16. We moved there after being in Fort Worth for four years after getting out of
the Air Force in 1970. My family (Great grandparents) moved to Loving, Texas
(Young County) from Kansas in 1907. I grew up in Loving and Graham. Our two
sons, Jeff and Chris are the last of our family to keep this line going. Neither have
any children at the present time. I have one Burdick first cousin with no children
and will have none. He is the only other male left. Bunches of girl-type cousins,
though. Ha! Thanks for saying hello.

Ferris both of Pawling, Dutches, New York though I'm not sure of this.

New Hope, MN USA - Saturday, July 8, 2000
I'm working on my family tree and received some pictures from Carl Burdick Jr.
that belonged to his father Carl Sr., my 2nd ggfather. James A Clark is on the
photo along with some Burdicks. I can't find out where the picture was taken
or who these Burdicks are or where they are from. I think the picture was taken
around 1880 or there abouts. The Burdicks in the picture are Amos Burdick Jr.
his wife Anstis (Clark) Burdick, Mercy (Clark) Burdick the widow of Alfred Burdick.
They all appear to be in there 60's or so I thought if I could find out where they
lived it would probably help me find out where my 2nd ggfather ended up since
I can't find him after the 1870 census in Canada. I know all of his family
returned to the states from Canada in the late 1860's. to early 1870's. I have
checked several Burdicks in Carl Burdick's book, From Whence We Came,
but they are not in there. I'm related to the Burdicks thru Carl Sr.'s mother;
she was my great Aunt. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Lodi, WI USA - Thursday, June 22, 2000
This is a great website! I'm fairly new on this Burdick research so haven't fully
reseached the Robert Burdick of RI book yet.
My grgr grandfather was Clark C Burdick (5-26-1821-1901) he was born in NY,
settled in central Iowa where he died. He was son of Wm Burdick & Polly Ann
(Mary Ann) Hancock, Wm Burdick was son of Daniel Burdick & Temperance Hall,
and Wm is listed as son of Wm Burdick & Sarah Edwards. Hoping to hear about
siblings of Clark C Burdick, they were all born in New York I believe: they
are Wm Stillman Burdick, Hubbard Smith Burdick, Nathan D, Edward P, Mary Ann,
John Hancock Burdick, Collins C, and Charles P.

I too am related to the Burdick Family. Carl Courtland Burdick's Mother Emma Florence
(Clark) Burdick is the daughter of my 2nd great grand fathers brother Philander Clark.
The Question I have though, is a picture of 13 people on a photograph that I have,
there are some Burdicks on the photo and I have no clue who they are. Their names
are Amos Burdick Jr, his wife Anstis (Clark) (e) Burdick and Mercy (Clark) (e) Burdick
widow of Alfred Burdick. I'm guessing the photo is from around 1880 but not sure,
My 2nd great grand father James Alanson Clark (e) is also on the photo, no idea
where it was taken. Any help with these people would be greatley appreciated.

Burdick, grandfather Russell Burdick, father Clayton Russell Burdick. The
first 2 were buried in Maynard, IA, and my dad in Reinbeck, IA. I was
always told that when Maynard was founded it was almost named Burdick.
Don't know if it's true but that's what my grandma always said. The
Burdick's have always been involved in Masonic work and I have letters from
PA about being a Mason that were written in the 1800's. Most of the men in
the family were carpenters or cabinet makers. I have several pieces of
furniture made by Burdick's including a bed made by George Washington

Stonington, CT. We Burdicks are a tight knit group in the Mystic area of CT.
Every chance we get we gather together twenty cousins at least and visit
with my grandmother Alice Latham Burdick (b. 23 Feb 1914). We've even come to
nickname her home the Burdick Family Compound. There are so many Burdick
descendants in the area we may be related to half the state of RI! My
grandfather Ellery passed away several years ago (d.16 Oct 1991) and I do not
have anything beyond his fathers information. This leaves a big gap in my
geneology research. I stumbled upon your web page and am very excited to
discover other sources you've listed. I am a gardener and Landscape Architect
heavily influenced by my grandfather and mothers' interest (healthy
obsession) with gardening. I am a Christian woman devoted to Jesus my

his life. Thank you for the opportunity to brag about my Burdick family

My Mother and I are trying to trace her Burdick lineage. We can go
back only so far and then we run up against a stone wall. My Mother
was Ardinelle Burdick, daughter of J.Edwin Burdick, son Aylmers Delroy
(A.D.) Burdick & Penelope Irvin Jones. Alymers Delroy (A.D.)
Burdick's father was A.D. Burdick, Sr. We have found that A.D.
Burdick Sr. was born in New York State probably in Chenango Co. He
migrated from New York to Georgia where he met and married May A.
around 1855. He and May lived in Georgia approximately 3 years after
they married and had one child, a girl name B.M. The family moved to
Texas and settled in Grimes Co, where A.D. was born. We cannot find
where A.D. died or was buried.
In all your Burdick work, do you remember coming across any
information similar to the above? Any help you can give us getting us
back on track will be greatly appreciated.

I need the children of Parker Burdick b. 11 Sep 1735 Westerly, Washington Co.
RI, for my genealogy. Please let me know if there is anyone doing or has
done research on this person. The LDS database lists Parker Burdick as
married to Thankful (Burdick?) on 13 Jun 1754 in Westerly, RI, but does not
list any of their children.
My current research lead me to make the following theory:
Parker Burdick had a daughter, probably named Rebecca, who married Mr.
Crandall, probably named Samuel. They named their son Parker Burdick
Crandall b. 1790.
If true, this makes Parker Burdick the grandfather of my ancestor Parker
Please help me locate records or information to test this theory.

The Burdicks in McKean Co, PA area married into Gallup
families, most of whom I am related to. Looking for info on an ELEANOR
DAVIS, d/o Lydia Burdick and Benjamin Davis. Info I've found so far doesn't
imply a link except that the names and locations jive (includes Chenango and
Cortland Co areas in NY). DAVID S. WHITE m. ELEANOR T. DAVIS, on 12/31/1826.
David was born 12/7/1802, s/o Ichabod White and Rhoda Hoag. We have no info
on Eleanor, but she is buried in the Colegrove Cemetery in Crosby, McKean Co,
PA. Dates on tombstone are 6/15/1820 - 9/19/1881. Eleanor is my
gggrandmother and none of us have been able to trace her so far.
However, since there are Burdicks married into most of the lines down there
as well as Gallups and they did tend to marry rather closely, there's a
chance real strong likelihood that there's a link somewhere with the DAVIS
family as well.
I have quite a bit of info on the Gallup families in the McKean Co area as
well as the Fullers from Potter County...a cousin who lives in the area and
helps out looking things up at times.
We believe that David White (b. 1802) was born in NY and know that two of
Ichabod's brothers (all were in the Rev War) are buried in the Tully/Prebble
area and that there is likely still family in that area.
Feel free to email me if I can help you or vice versa.

I am also researching Burdicks but don't believe I am related to any you have listed.
According to my great grandfathers death certificate he was born outside of Paris France
in 1850. His name was Semion Burdick. His father was listed as Leon Burdick and
his mother's name was Adeline. It also stated he had been a soldier in France.
He came to the US sometime before 1882 and was married in DeKalb County IL in 1882.
Do you think his last name had been Burdick or Burdette? Do you have any information

Central New York, USA - Tuesday, January 4, 2000
I too am a Burdick descendant here in central NY State where the
early Burdicks settled, some before 1800. My 4xg-grandfather was Samuel
Hubbard Burdick who is credited as being the earliest of the Burdick
settlers in this area, I believe. There is a grave marker for him in a
cemetery in the town of Brookfield, Madison Co., NY. His wife was Amie
Maccoon who was born in Hopkinton, RI, and who apparently never came east.
I don't know her death date. His son, my 3xg-grandfather, Charles L.
Burdick, and his siblings were all born in Stonington, CT, as was Samuel
Hubbard Burdick. Charles L. is only mentioned as having been born, no
other information given in Nellie Johnson's book. (She was a resident of
Norwich, NY, right here where I have lived most of my life.)
There is an addendum to her book and I found most of my early info
about Charles and his children there. Then I secured a copy of his will in
Cooperstown, the county seat of Otsego Co. Currently one of my missing
links is the maiden name of his wife, Rebecca. They are buried on the
Madison Co. side of the Unadilla River in an extant cemetery, very nicely
Their daughter Alzina Burdick married Macomber Barker whose
pedigree I have in its entirety, I believe. Their daughter Ella Barker
married Charles Brownell, also here in this part of NY State although I
don't have a record of their marriage which precedes 1880. Their daughter
Frances Aurilla Brownell married Stephen Miles Walling and lived in the
town of Edmeston, Otsego Co., NY. Their daughter Minnie Elizabeth Walling
is my mother and married John Richard Child in Sherburne, Chenango Co., NY.
I am Sara (Sally) May Child Chirlin married to Donald D. Chirlin and live
in Norwich. We have two children and one grandchild. I can give you the
brothers and sisters down the generations from Charles and Rebecca if you
There were Seventh Day Baptists, which the first Burdicks all were
because of Ruth Hubbard's influence, well into the 20th century. I'm told
that the church in Lincklaen, Chenango Co., near a cemetery with many
Burdicks interred, operated as a church until quite recently.
I am interested in writing to Dr. Carol Burdick in Alfred, NY, as I think one of
my Burdick ancestor's brothers indeed moved to Alfred! I haven't had the
pleasure of meeting a cousin from one of the Burdick siblings in ANY
generation so I'd love to find one!
Also, I too descend from Bethia Hubbard. Continuing back, this
time, from Samuel Hubbard and Amie Maccoon Burdick, Samuel Hubbard Burdick
m. Avis Maxson. Then, from Avis Maxson -- her parents were John Maxson and
Judith Clarke and Judith Clarke's parents were Joseph Clarke and Bethia
Hubbard, sister of Ruth Hubbard.
Please let me hear from you. I thoroughly enjoy the connection
with other kin via e-mail and the internet websites.
I look forward to continued sharing of Burdick memorabilia.
Perhaps someone out there will trace his or her roots back here to NY State
where the "first" Burdick immigrants appear to have settled.

I picked up a copy of JOHN CLARKE AND HIS LEGACIES: Religion and Law in
Colonial Rhode Island 1638-1750 by Sydney V. James Penn State Univ Press
1999 0271018496 and can recommend it to Burdick researchers.
It's an academic monograph but very well written and gave me a lot of insight
into conditions in early RI and MA; their close connections to the old world
sparrings with Winthrop over the RI-CT border, and particularly the fortunes of
the First Baptist Church in Westerly. It's very clear on the religious controversies --
the Sabbath, laying on of hands, adult baptism, antinomianism, the
professionalization of the pastorate.
While no Burdicks figure directly in the story, Tacy Hubbard makes an appearance
as do sundry Clarkes, Maxsons, and other folk who frequently feature in Burdick lines.
My wife's mother's family are Burdicks and very much kin to John Duffy Burdick
line that's appeared in these white pages. I've only been into genealogy since last
February and have been working mostly with the stuff I find online. There's sure a
plethora of Burdick's out there, and much easier to find than my mom's Taylor
line or sorting out all the southern Lundys from my people in NYC and PA.

I will be searching Tolland and E. Haddam, Connecticut for Parker
Burdick Crandall. His wife came from E. Haddam, where her parents were
married. There are several Sam Crandalls in Tolland. I
believe Parker's father to be Sam Crandall. If you know and Burdick women
married to Crandalls in Connecticut c. 1790 please let me know.
I suspect my Burdick
connection may have been a child not named in the book. I noticed that the
book focuses on direct lineage of male heirs and does not cover the children
of female Burdicks. This is not a criticism, the book is amazing. I cannot
even imaging doing that without a word processor!

I would like to share my project that will be ongoing for some time. I have
been collecting the data on my grandparents - Lyman Andrew Burdick and Doris
Elizabeth Muggle - and their descendants - which number over 100 with their 10
children and their children and grand children. Anyone can email me
and I'll share what I have. I am most interested in Lyman's father, Harvey
Edgar, travelling from Grafton, Rensselear, New York to Florida, Berkshire,
Massachusetts. It seems that a lot of the family moved from Grafton and
settled Pownal, Vermont, and Northern Berkshire, namely, Hancock, North Adams,
Adams, and Florida Mountain. I am trying to see if anyone has any of the
Family Bibles or if they knew why this family moved across the mountains
bordering New York and Massachusetts.
