In Reply to: Re: BURCHETT in MORGAN CO. KY by Elois Rediker of 1013

It is so wonderful to hear from you. Thank you so much for contacting me! I cannot believe I have heard from someone from the Hill family! Lonnie Hill was my grandma's half brother. Lillian Burchett (Liddy they called her)Edmond Burchett was my great Uncle who did marry Dimmie Cantrell. I used to stay with them a lot as a child. I remember my grandma talking about Lonnie, she called him Lon. My grandma's mother and Lonnie's mother was Minnie Burchwell who was married to Spencer Hill. I don't know what happened, but she next married Lonzo Burchett. I have heard that Lonzo was a farm hand for her and Spencer? I would love to know the story. At first I thought possibly Spencer died, but then I thought maybe not, maybe they just split up, but that was not so common in those days. My grandma also talked about a half sister, I just can't remember her name though. Do you know where any of them are buried? Any help or info would be so much appreciated. My grandma never talked about her family a whole lot and it has been difficult to trace them back. I'm really excited and I thank you again for contacting me. Looking forward to hearing from you........Tonia
