Ms. Todd,
I am glad to hear from you.My mother has told me some about her fathers family,yet there is alot she doesn't know.
As a child I remember going to the Singer area and visiting her uncles,Arthur and Cecil Burge.I believe Cecil was blind and lived with or close to Arthur.
Charlie Burge was my grand-father.He died when my mother was very young.Henderson and Cynthia Burge were his parents.I would appreciate any information you may can share on any and all of these folks.I would very much like to know more about Charlie.
Thank you,
James

My husband's grandmother was Ethel Irving Burge. I have a copy of her marriage announcement showing Mr and Mrs. E.A. Burge as her parents of Vinton, LA. Ethel Irving Burge married James J. Steidley in 1905. They lived in DeRidder and established "The DeRidder Enterprise" - which remained in the family for many years. I have very little info on the Burge family, but thought maybe there was some connection since you mentioned some of the Burge's lived in the DeRidder area.
