(13.5.8.3) Ella Burgett, was born in about 1857 in Illinois.  Ella was listed in her brother's biography as the widow of Horace Morgan.  In the 1880 Federal Census, Ella and Horace Morgan were enumerated in Elgin, 5th Ward, Kane County, Illinois, ED# 84, page 297C, enumerated on the 18th of June:

She probably remarried, I have not located her in the 1900 census.


(13.5.8.4) Frank Leslie Burgett    was born in about 1860 probably in Wisconsin and according to his brother Frederick's biography, later lived in New Mexico.  He died on 12 June 1931 in Yavapai County, Arizona.  His death certificate listed his parents as "Corneilus" Burgett, birthplace listed as unknown, and Matilda "Harris", birthplace listed as Michigan.  Frank's birthplace was listed as Bloomfield, Wisconsin.  His birth date was listed as 4 July 1859 and his age at death was listed as 71 years, 11 months and 8 days.  His wife was listed as Mrs. Anna Burgett.  Anna Elizabeth Burgett's death record listed her date of birth as 1 November 1861 and her date of death as 28 December 1947 in Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona.  Her spouse was listed as Frank Leslie Burgett, "Dec'd".  Her father was listed as John Embery, place of burial listed as Mt. View Cemetery, date of burial listed as 31 December 1947.  The informant on her death certificate was Charles Burgett of Prescott, Arizona.

I believe that Frank was unmarried and in the Army, Company C, Third Cavalry, in the 1880 Federal Census, garrisoned at Fort D.A. Russell, Laramie County, Wyoming.  He is indexed as F.L. Burgette, born in New York, and his parents place of birth is also listed as New York.  There is a marriage for Frank Leslie "Burget" and Anna Embery, date of marriage listed as 27 September 1881, place of marriage, Fort Johnson, Mckinney County, Wyoming, Volume A, page 4.  Anna Embery was working as a servant in the household of F.E. and Mary L. Addoms in Cheyenne, Laramie County, Wyoming in 1880.  I have not yet located Frank and Anna in the 1900 Federal Census (not for lack of trying).

In 1910 Frank was enumerated in in Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona ED# 126, sheet 2B (Frank and Anna both stated that they had been married for 24 years; Anna stated that she had given birth to 5 children, 4 of which were still living--Ceola's last name is difficult to read, she stated that she had been married for 3 years and had given birth to 1 living child):

                     William  Grand son  1 1/2  Arizona      Arizona         New Mexico

Living a few doors away in the 1910 census was their son Charles Burgett (both Charles and Mary stated that they had been married for 8 years; Mary also stated that she had given birth to 5 living children):

                          Mary  Daughter  1  Arizona  Wyoming  Pennsylvania
                            Edwin  Son  1/12   Arizona  Wyoming  Pennsylvania

In the 1920 Federal Census Frank L. and Anna Burgett were living in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona, ED# 65, sheets 1A and 1B.  Frank must have had a senior moment he stated that he was age 70, listed his birthplace as Wisconsin, his father's birthplace as Holland and his mother's place of birth as Ohio.  Anna listed her age as 58.  He was working as a brakeman for the Railroad.  Also listed in the 1920 household was a granddaughter, age 14, I couldn't make out her first name, middle name "C.", she was probably the Ceola, age 4, daughter of his son Charles, listed in the 1910 census.

In the 1930 Federal Census Frank and Anna were again enumerated in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona, ED# 2, sheet 2B.  Frank listed his age as 70 and his place of birth as Wisconsin.  He also correctly listed his father's place of birth as New York and his mother's place of birth as Michigan.  Anna listed her age as 67.  Also listed in their 1930 household was their daughter, Ceola E. Brinkworth, age 40,  widowed, born in New Mexico.

Their known children were:

H. Burgett, burial in Mt. View Cemetery, date of burial listed as 3 November 1944.  Her parents were listed as Patrick J. Burke, born in Ireland and Mary Embery (place of birth not listed).  The informant was listed as Ray Weber of Prescott.
Charles and Mary were living a few doors away from his parents in the 1910 Federal Census (see above; Charles and Mary both stated that they had been married for 8 years; Mary stated that she had given birth to 5 living children):

The 1930 Federal Census of listed Charles and Mamie back in Prescott, Yavapai County, ED# 26, sheet 1A (the grandchildren were possibly John L.'s children, his age should have been 27 not 20 and he listed his marital status as married; Margaret was listed as a "grandson?", however her sex was recorded as an "F"):
