Sentimental Sunday

The Burdette Homestead - about 1910

The Burdette's are strung into our family pearls through my grandfather's second marriage. To Ada Burdette in 1907.

Having lost his first wife in 1902 to tuberculosis, and left with three small children to raise, Grandpa Bean married Ada. The couple had 9 children, before Ada died in 1929 due to complications following the birth of her last child.

This photograph is for those cousins who trace their lineage through this line.
