Koger Family Genealogy Forum
I can't determine just what kind of cousins we are, but believe we are definitely "kinfolk". I don't have any family listed for Sarah and General Burke, so am looking forward to corresponding with you to learn and share information. I do have some photos of Burke/Koger kin and will be happy to send them to your e-mail address. I can't answer your questions about William's regiment or company but have been told that he travelled south to Florida to join up with General Andrew Jackson and then marched into Louisiana. I believe he was with the Kentucky Volunteers, but nothing more. As to his burial site, I was told that one of the many "coffin-shaped" boxes that lay on top of the ground in Bethel Cemetery belong to William and possibly to Polly Bookout, as well. I don't believe any markings can still be seen. I also don't know if Bethel Baptist church has any old cemetery records still in existence. Please use my e-mail address to contact me. Carla Nelson
