Family Group Sheet: Benjamin Apling Burdette family

Benjamin and Millie Burdette
My post today is an updated family group sheet, for the family of Benjamin Apling Burdette and his wife Amelia (Millie) Elizabeth Hood. Benjamin and Millie are my great grandparents. There are several versions that are presented within family trees at www.ancestry.com,. Many include a great deal of misinformation, and assumptions.

The following is the most recent version, and has been confirmed and sourced. If you are a descendant from any of Ben and Millie's children, I would welcome your correspondence at: gayleh (at) brmemc.net

Special thanks to Bob and Julia Fox for the photo of Ben and Millie. This is a new one for me, and it is greatly appreciated.
