Burdick Mystery Photos

These photographs were contributed to this website by Katherine J. Wilkinson of Carlisle, PA. If you have photographs you'd like to contribute to this website, they'd be very welcome! You may scan them and send them in the body of an email message to me, Debby Masterson.

Kathy writes of this first photo, "My family would love to know exactly who this is."

Here is another photograph from Kathy. She writes, "The seated man in this well-worn picture is Lyman Sullivan BURDICK, Jr., son of Lyman Sullivan BURDICK, Sr. and Almira BONESTEEL. Lyman, Jr. was born in Grafton in 1845 and died in
Berkshire County, Massachusetts in 1889. I would like to identify the standing man."

Here is a third photograph from Kathy. She writes, "The man in this picture is Lyman Sullivan BURDICK, Jr., born in Grafton in 1845 and died in Berkshire County, Massachusetts in 1889. He married Laura THAYER, a daughter of Lorenzo THAYER and Polly BURDICK. The most likely identification is that the seated woman is Laura THAYER BURDICK and that the young woman standing is Lyman and Laura's daughter Emma BURDICK. Can anyone conclusively identify these two women?"
