Letter - Henry Lemuel Burkitt to Mary Burkitt Richardson

Submitted by Ron Cramer who received the letters from John Bush

Letter dated June 1, 1868. This letter is also written by Henry Burkitt to his sister Mary Burkitt Richardson. John is a brother of Mary and Henry. James is Henry' son. The Joseph Burkitt is a bit confusing. If it is meant to be Joseph and Burkitt, then it refers to Mary Richardson's sons. The Thomas Richardson mentioned would be Henry's nephew. Caroline Burkitt married Thomas Richardson senior. There are a great many Burkitts buried in the IOOF cemetery in Okolona, MS.
