Burgess is said to have been educated at Trinity College in North Carolina and Bryant & Strattons Business College in Philadelphia. He is said to have worked at the Charleston Navy Yards as a shipbuilder during the Civil War. The article in Makers of America about Jesse Franklin Hayden gives the date of Burgess's marriage to 1860, rather than 1864.

I found daughter Laura and her husband W. H. Townsend.
I also believe I found daughter "Ida", whose name was actually Ada. In 1900 she was in the State Hospital for the Insane, in Morganton, Burke Co NC. She was listed as Ada M. Lutterloh, born 1870, age 30. Then I found Isaac Luttlerloh living in Sanford Twp, Moore Co NC. He was born Jan 1866 and was age 34. He had been married for 5 years. He was a Physician. Although marked as married there was no spouse present in the household. There was a son, Hayden, born Sept 1896, age 3. Also Isaac's brother Thomas H. lived with him, born Sep 1868, age 31. They had a boarder and a Black servant as well.
Burgess's son "Jim" age 5 in 1880, was apparently Jesse F. Haden. I found him in Thomasville, Davidson Co NC in 1910. He was living with his in-laws John & Almeda Green.
Burgess F. HADEN and Mary Levina CAUDLE were married on 13 November 1864. Mary Levina CAUDLE768 was born (date unknown).
The article about Jesse Franklin Hayden in Makers of America, states that Mary Levina's name was Cauble, or Coble, not Caudle and that she was the daughter of Peter and Polly Cauble of Rowan County, possibly from the Palatinate.
Burgess F. HADEN and Mary Levina CAUDLE had the following children:
