Classification: Query
Surnames: Burkitt, Liles, Blackstone
I am a descendant of the Burkitt line. My GGgrandmother was Milissa (Mildred) Burkett. She was called Milly and my mother said she didn't know whether her name was Mildred or Milissa. Anyway, at age 8 she is listed in the census as Mildred. She married John T Blackstone and had one child. John was killed in the Civil War and never got to see his daughter Mary Elizabeth Blackstone. Mary Elizabeth married Fletcher Liles. Family story is that they were 1st cousins. They can't be, but they can be 2nd cousins. I haven't proven that yet either.
My grandmother was her daughter Ruth Jourden Liles. I'm a little murky on the family history past Mildred (Milissa's) parents. There are too many William and Lemuels.
I wondered if you had more information. Thank you so much.
