Burkhalter Orphan Search

My Dad did some research on the Burkhalters in the 80's before he died but there were many holes. I am picking up the trail again. My great grandfather was Thomas Burkhalter (born in Mississippi) who went to McKenzie, Tennessee from Sardis, Mississippi to attend Bethel College in the late 1870's, got married there to Alice Stephens, but they both died young in or around 1882 probably during the Yellow Fever epidemic. My Grand Father, David A. Burkhalter was therefore raised as an orphan, and unfortunately died in 1932 so he didnít have or pass on much information. I believe (but I am trying to verify), Thomas' dad was Alexander (S?) B.(Born in Alabama), whose dad was William (born in S.C.), whose Dad, I think, was Michael 2, whose Dad was Michael 1, etc.

Any help and/or information you could provide would be greatly appreciated espcially copies of old records, letters, etc. Thank you. David A. Burkhalter II
