Surname Saturday...Burdette

Today I'd like to go off-track a bit, and introduce you to a very short line that I have.

This branch of our family is really of no blood relation to me. But rather belongs to some of my much loved cousins.

You see, my Grandpa Bean was married twice before he married my own Grandmother. [Affectionately called "Aunt Mary" by her step-children and step-grandchildren, I have just about shared every line of her family with you thusfar as known.] So, today I would like to share with you my Grandpa Bean's second wife's history, of which we know very little so far. It is a line I have not as yet explored, and which is on my "to-do" list!
