[Researcher Note: Jessie's marriage and death records conflict. In her marriage record, her father's name is listed as Henry Burk (instead of Herbert on the death record). On her marrige record, her mother's maiden name is listed as Mary J Wells, instead of the death record of Alice Flounders. Therefore the information listed is up for further research. In doubt, I usually attempt to go with the information that came from the "living" individual as opposed to those trying to piece it together after their death. Family trees on ancestry.com indicate that Mary Wells' mother's maiden name was "Flounders".]|
