GENERATION 1
1. GEORGE BURKETT1 was born 1785 in South Carolina, and died December 1860 in Lawrence Co Mississippi

He married ELIZABETH TILL Abt. 1805 in Orangeburg District South Carolina, thought to be the daughter of NICHOLAS TILL and ANNA DUERING. See notes below.  She died August 11, 1857.
 
George Burkett Notes:    Journal of Andrew Jackson Burkett in the 1950's in custody of Lou Elizabeth Wilkes Burkett

George Burkett was born between the 24th of March 1785 and the 9th of July 1785, per the 1851 and 1855 Bounty Claims. This information is from William H. Burkett of Falls Church, Virginia.

He died after the 13th of December 1860, per Lawrence County Mississippi Deeds, Volume H, Pages 405-407 and before the 9th of January 1861, when his will was filed for Probate in Lawrence Co Mississippi.

The Probate record of George Burkett is located in the: Lawrence Co Mississippi. Probate Volume 1858-1866: Pages 233, 234, 239, 244, 245, 246, 250, 252, 253, 263, 265, 271, 272, 302, & 352 The loose papers are in Box 46 of the Probate Records at the Lawrence Co Mississippi Courthouse. The recently completed index to the loose papers does not reflect his name nor the reference to Box 46. Mary Jane Burkett Caruso of Houston, Texas located his record years ago and pointed out the new index omitted him.

He started to acquire his White Sand land in old Lawrence Co Mississippi in 1835. Some of his land he bought at the Federal Land Office and some he bought from other people.  On the 1838 Lawrence Co Mississippi Tax Roll he was listed as owning 160 acres Whitesand, his son, John Burkett was listed as owning 160 acres Whitesand, and son, George Burkett, Jr. was taxed for 180 acres Green Creek. The move from old Covington Co to old Lawrence Co was about 1835. Both of these locations are now in Jefferson Davis Co Mississippi.

Per Lawrence County Probate Court Record, 1858-1866, pages 233-234, George Burkett named as executors of his estate his sons Gabriel Burkett and A.J. Burkett. The Judge appointed John Polk, Josephine Polk, and Irvin Magee as appraisers of his estate.

Page 246 of the same book names the heirs of his estate. They were: Sarah Ann Stringer and Franklin Stringer, her husband, of Marion Co Mississippi, Mary Stringer and Levi Stringer, her husband, F.M. Burkett, J.N. Burkett, W.J. Burkett, Catherine Warner and B.J.J. Warner, her husband, (all) of Lawrence Co Mississippi, Elizabeth Burkett, widow of Washington Burkett, deceased of Perry County Mississippi. Notice was to be published for George Burkett and John Burkett, who were non-residents of Lawrence Co Mississippi.

Levi Stringer and Josiah Franklin Stringer were half-brothers and the sons of Josiah Stringer.

It is thought some of their children married in Covington Co Mississippi records burned in 1853 and 1905. It would have been easier to go to Williamsburg Mississippi, the county seat then for Covington Co than to cross the Pearl River and go to Monticello Mississippi, from either location they lived.
 
Elizabeth Till Notes:

Efforts to prove the maiden name of Elizabeth Burkett have not been successful to this point.  Because some of her grandchildren have a given name of Till, it is thought to have been her maiden name. When George Burkett was located on the 1810 SC census living in Orangeburg District some of his neighbors were Till families. George and Elizabeth Burkett named son Gabriel and some thought has been given to the possibility that she may have been the sister of Gabriel Blackburn. There are several inter-marriages between the descendants of the Burkett and Blackburn families, my line is one of those inter-marriages.

Elizabeth Burkett (Mrs. George Burkett) died the 11th of August 1857 per the Bethany Baptist Church Records and Minutes, Reference Book 1, Page 323.   This information was located by Mrs. Neva Thompson of Prentiss, Mississippi.

The burial location of George and Elizabeth Burkett has not been proved. It is thought they are buried in the Francis Marion Burkett Cemetery in present day Jefferson Davis County. This is very near to the first land purchased by George Burkett on White Sand Creek on the 26th of August 1835. The Francis Marion Burkett Cemetery is located in Township 6 North, Range 19 West, Section 3. A trip to the cemetery about 1989 was very depressing. I went with Mrs. Neva Thompson and Mary Jane Burkett Caruso. We found trees have been deliberately felled into the cemetery destroying markers from their bases for Francis Marion Burkett and his wife and family. It seemed as if it was done to discourage visits from the family.   This information from Lora Beth Barlow Wright

I have a note from a descendant that a will for George was left in Lawrence Co Mississippi ... though I have not seen a copy...

I did not locate George in an 1830 census that I could verify.  I found a George's in Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee.   The only Burkett in Mississippi is James in Covington Co.
