I am trying to find out information on WILLIAM HENRY VAN BURKLEO AKA BURKLEO who was married to Nancy Cunningham. Their son, WILLIAM HENRY BURKLEO, who was my great grandfather, was born in 1860. He left St. Charles in 1876 which was after his parents died. He then went to Texas and then California. We wondered if there was information in the census records or any death records on them.

On page 15C of the 1876 Missouri STATE Census there is an Anna Z. Vanburkleo age 18-21, Maggie S. VanBurkleo age 10-18 and Ugine M. VanBurkleo age 10-18. Judging from the order of the census, they may have been neighbors of or living with the family of Humphrey and Hellen Best. You can find a book of this census at the Kathryn Linneman branch of the St. Charles Library.

Nice to hear from you. Sorry to take a couple weeks to respond. We were on vacation from July 12 until this weekend.

I am a descendant of William Van Burkleo and Marie Hyrons/Hirons Van Burkleo (my 6 times great grandparents) through their daughter Jerusha Rosana Van Burkleo who married John Gaty. John Gaty's parents were George Gaty and Christine/Christina Smith (my 6 times great grandparents). Widower George Gaty married widow Marie Hyrons Van Burkleo and had one child, Angeline/Angelina Gaty (Mrs. Ignatius Mills and Mrs. Jacob Comegys). -- Angelina and Ignatius were married by the Justice of the Peace, James H. Audrain (my 5 times greatgrandfather).

I understand that my ancestor (5 times great grandmother) Jerusha Rosana Van Burkleo Gaty had a sister Rebecca Van Burkleo Ezell (Mrs. John Ezell).

It appears that we are cousins! Would be interested in corresponding.
