Burks Family


Submitted by Mike Oakley

The information below is from my cousin who lives on her family farm in the northern part of Louisiana.


Mike, this is my father's family! It was taken in the fall of 1911 at their home in Ben Wheeler, Van Zandt Co., TX. Left to right they are Robert Albert, James Franklin (Jim), Allie, Floyd Chambers, Clyde Elwood, my dad Charles Edward (Charlie) and on the back row, right to left is my grandmother Martha Ellen "Mattie" Allen Burks, 2nd wife of George Robert Burks, who is next to her and holding Jewel Odell Burks and the older woman is George Robert Burks' mother, Martha Jane Sanders Burks. My Grandpa George's first wife died and the 4 older sons are theirs. My dad was the oldest of his and Mattie's. --Shirley Burks Wells
