I added the obituary for William Thomas Wolfe #82990123, in case you are interested. It is brief.

Jacob Burger
I found a Jacob Burges in the 1880 Census in Greenwood, Franklin, Kansas with his wife, Susan & several of the children. The names match the 1870 Census in Jefferson, Owen, Indiana. I also found Christopher Burger, Sarah, Jacob, William, Charles & Isaac in the 1880 Census in Greenwood, Franklin, Kansas. Christopher being an older son of Jacob & Susan whose suppose to be bured in Summit Lawn Cemetery.

I believe Susan and the children moved back to Indiana after Jacob died in 1886. If the Jacob Burger buried in Greenwood Baptist Church Cemetery (Find A Grave#14908565) is the husband, then we could link him to Susan Winklepleck Burger. The person who took the photo of Jacob Burger is dead (she was murdered), so she can't link them.

What do you think? The big question is....why did they move to Kansas?

I also found out that a Jacob Burger served on the Union side in the 28 Regiment, Ohio Infantry, Company B as a Corporal from 16 July 1861 to 23 July 1864.

I didn't find the other Burger who married a Winklpleck. Jacob's brother, right?

Burger Family
My research of the Burger family primarily was to connect the siblings, and find them in Summit Lawn Cemetery. The next thing I knew, I was all over the place. I'm amazed at such a large family. I now find family moving to Saint Louis (Seth's daughter).

I wanted to place a photo to a memorial, and it became much more.

No! I didn't see the two brothers marrying Winklepleck women. Was that in Ohio? I saw where Benjamin never married, and took care of his brothers family when he died. I don't understand how Seth did what he did. Life is something.

John Alexander Burger (FAG#123581618)
I have been researching the Burger Family, and found an obituary indicating John is actually buried in Cottage Hill Cemetery not Summit Lawn Cemetery (both in Clay County, Indiana).

Terre Haute Tribune obituary dated 28 March 1934, page 02 reads: BRAZIL,Ind., March 28 - John A. Burger died at 10 o'clock last night at the home, 615 South Morgan Street, of paralysis, aged 66 years. The deceased was born in Perry township but had resided in Brazil for many years. He was formerly employed as a laborer at the various livery stables here before the automobile era. He is survived by the widow and three sons, Harley A., George B. and Forest F. Burger. Funeral services will be held at the Miller & Sons chapel at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon. Rev. H. Austin Smith officiatng. Interment Cottage Hill cemetery.

Note: I walked with the Cottage Hill Cemetery caretaker with his platt maps, and he showed me where he's buried. No headstone.

His wife, Almeda Burger is also buried in Cottage Hill Cemetery, and just recently established her memorial(Find A Grave#151851792). She doesn't have a headstone either.

Would you please move John Alexander Burger from Summit Lawn Cemetery to Cottage Hill Cemetery, and link him to his wife.

Have you found where the father, Jacob Burger is actually buried? I think he's buried in Greenwood Baptist Church Cemetery (Find A Grave#14908565), but the birth/death dates don't look right.

Thanks for understanding the request to move the burial location. Both cemetery caretakers appreciate your efforts.
