BURKE/FRANKLIN

The Milliner Burke family lived in Chatham County, North Carolina.  Some of the children later moved
to Alabama, Tennessee & other areas west or south of North Carolina.
The James Madison Burke family moved from North Carolina to Tennessee to Arkansas and finally to
Collin  County, Texas, where they established their farm on property in that county about 1858.
The Franklins came to Collin County from Arkansas about 1857. The Burke & Franklin families were united
 in 1867 when Isaac Franklin married Levinia Elizabeth Burke.
