Peter Burger married (1) Catherine Hines on 22 Apr 1824 in Pulaski Co KY. She was the dau of William Hines & Barbara Baugh, born about 1808 in Virginia and died about 1840. Peter was said to have married the widow Mary Ann (Harris) VanHook on 3 Sep 1841. Catherine would have been the mother of Henry.
Other children of Peter & Catherine Burger are said to be:
Jackson Burger, b. 1827 and married Mary Ann Compton in 1850 in Pulaski Co KY [They are also in the 1850 census in Pulaski Co KY, his name spelled Burger]
Harrison Burger, b. 1829 and died 1898 in Wapella, Dewitt Co, Illinois. He has 4 marriages and some 22 children; not all are known by name.
Harriette Burger, b. 1835 and married Thomas Baugh 1859 in Pulaski Co KY - I can't explain why Hariette was not with her father in 1850 since she was only 15 and not yet married.

This might be Jackson in 1870 in Gentry Co MO:
1870: MO, Gentry Co; Cooper Twp, p.562, Household 261:
Burger, Jackson, age 44 Farmhard, b. in KY
Mary age 36, b. KY [She should be older if she's the same Mary]
Sarah E., 19, KY
Frances, 17, KY, attends school
?Erasmus age 16, b. KY, works on farm [name hard to read]
John F. 14, school, first of the children born in MO

Henry, age 9 b. MO
William, age 8, b. MO
Martha age 6, b. MO
Ada E. age 2 months, b. MO
This listing of birth places for Jackson's children seems to indicate the Burgers came to Missouri about 1855.
