The Burkett Family Story


New Page 1


I became a member of the Burkett family when, on January 10, 1942, I was married to Alricks Henry Burkett, son of Simon Henry Burkett and Martha Devillie Jeffers Burkett. I had known the Burkett family since the early 1930s when my older brother Eugene had been married to the Burkett’s daughter, Pauline.



The Burkett family had moved from Jasper County where they had always lived, to Bon Wier in Newton Co., where they acquired two sons-in-law and two daughters-in-law, I being the last one.



At the time Alricks and I were married, the Burketts had moved to Beaumont and Eugene and Pauline had also relocated to Beaumont. I came to Beamont to be with Pauline and Gene at the birth of their son Dale. Alricks and I renewed a courtship that had been interrupted because of circumstances beyond our control. After he and I were married, it never occurred to me to ask any questions about the Burkett genealogy but I began to hear my mother-in-law refer to Grand-ma Lacy. I had no idea who grand-ma Lacy was but I could tell by the way my mother-in-law spoke of her that she was someone important to the family. It just never occurred to me to ask how she fit into the family. Perhaps, if I had asked, it would have been explained to me. So I never knew that she was the mother of my father-in-law’s dad.



I soon began to learn more about the family but nothing more about Grand-ma Lacey. I learned that Simon Peter Burkett was married, first to Edna Cook, daughter of H. S. Cook and Martha Emmy Unknown and that they were the parents of five children, Charles Hampton“Charlie”, Elizabeth Jane“Lizzie” Burkett, Melissa Jane Burkett, Mittie Mazuria, Burkett and Simon Henry Burkett. Simon Henry was just five years of age when his mother died on March 26, 1899.



Soon after Edna’s death, Simon was married to Ellen Jane Robert, who I’ve been told, was about seventeen years of age. She was a very young lady, taking on the formidable responsibility of a ready made family.



Simon and Ellen Jane soon began a second family of their own and a large family it turned out to be. Theirs was a family of eleven children, beginning with James Neal then Monroe Lathaniel, John Alex, I’ve often wondered if his name was Alexander, since we finally learned Simon’s grandfather was named Alexander. Then, came Hattie Fronia Bell, Sidney Norman “Son”, Oma Lora Gay, I.D., Lilly Jane, Birdie Mae, Lucy Haskell and Jesse Elzie “Bill”. I can’t even imagine what life would be like with a family of sixteen children.



I seem to remember my mother-in-law telling me that the older girls married when they were very young and that they and their step-mother were having children who were near the same age. We have a picture of Grand-pa Simon holding daughter Lucy and granddaughter Marby, one in each arm. Marby was Melissa’s daughter.



Grand-pa Simon was born in Alabama on June 23, 1849 and died in San Augustine County Texas on January 21, 1931. Alricks doesn’t remember going to the original “old Burkett home place” although we do have pictures of it and of Grand-pa Simon and Grand-ma Ellen Jane at the “old place”.



When we were first married we were not in a position to visit family, we were just coming out of the depression, we were in the beginning of World War II so it wasn’t until after Alricks had served his time in the United States Navy that we finally found it possible to begin visiting Grand-ma Ellen Jane and others of the Burkett family. I learned to love them all but there were special ones which became very dear to us.



We loved going to visit Grand-ma Ellen Jane and I. D. The old home place had been replaced with a new house some time in the 1930s but the water well was at the edge of the back porch where I’m sure it had always been so one could stand on the porch to draw water. The cooking was still done on a wood-burning stove. What I assumed to be the same hand made dining table around which the large family had gathered for so many years was still standing in the kitchen covered with colorful oil-cloth. How different it must have been for Grand-ma Ellen Jane and I. D. to sit down to a meal at that long table. I can imagine the memories that flooded her mind of long ago times when all the family was there. It must have required huge pans of biscuits, platter after platter of fried eggs and I’m sure she refilled syrup pitchers every day and oh the peas and beans she must have shelled to feed her large brood. She must have had a tremendous amount of clothing to launder and iron. I do know she made her own lye soap because she told me how she did it. That was no easy feat. As if all that were not enough, we’ve been told that she helped Grand-pa Simon cut trees and drag them out of the woods and assisted him in making cross or railroad ties. She was a tiny little thing but she must have had the will power of a strong man. What a woman she must have been! How did she do it? Only God knows.



I remember a time we were visiting when Alricks, I. D. and Uncle Monroe’s son Buster and daughter Mary Jack decided to go on an over-night camping trip. Grand-ma, Juana and I were left to keep the home fires burning. She wasn’t too happy about it but we fared just fine. We sat on the long front porch till night drove us inside. She sat in her cow-hide chair, leaning back against the wall with her dip of snuff in her bottom lip, regaling us with stories from the past. She could spit all the way across the porch and into the yard---not one drop landing on the porch floor. How? I don’t know. Practice, I suppose.



One of the stories she told us was about a time when Alricks was a little boy and was spending the week with she and I. D. He had been following I. D. around the place and had gotten seed ticks but hadn’t told her. She was going to the garden to gather vegetables for the noon meal and asked Alricks if he would like to go with her. His response was, “no grandma, I think I’d better stay here and pick seed ticks off”. She could still enjoy a good laugh when relating the story even though it had happened so many years ago.



When the time came that Alricks was getting yearly vacations, we were able to visit other of the Burkett families and many of them became very dear to us. Those living in South Texas were Uncle Son and Aunt Annie Mae. They were already special to Alricks, because he had lived with them for a year when in 1939, he had tried to enlist in the United Sates Navy and had not been accepted. He was unable to find work and Uncle Son asked him to live with them and help him farm. It was the best thing that could ever have happened to him, tiding him over until the economy picked up and he was able to finally find a job. We both were grateful to them for what they had done for him. They were living in Sargent on the Gulf of Mexico and Alricks and his cousins enjoyed fishing and all the other things you do when living near the coast.



Also in Sargent, the family of Uncle Jess and Aunt Oma Hargroves were living and we always saw them when were there. They also became special to us. Their youngest child was LuAnn and she and Juana were pals, being about the same age.



At Swinney, a few miles away from Sargent, was Uncle Bryan and Aunt Birdie and their children. They, too, had a daughter who was near Juana’s age. Her name was Carol and she and Juana enjoyed playing with each other. So, is there any question as to why we loved to vacation in that area.



It was in the 1990s that Alricks and I were visiting with Aunt Oma in the nursing home in Pineland where she was living at the time. I was seriously working on the family genealogy and felt that I needed to ask some questions while she was still able to give me the answers. I felt it was time to ask the question I had wanted, so long, to ask. I asked, “Aunt Oma, who was Grand-pa Simon’s daddy? With that cute little smile, for which she was so famous, her answer was, “he didn’t have one”. “Oh, yes he did”, I said and of course we both knew he did. So now I knew that away back years and years ago a young girl had found herself in a very critical situation but chose to bring her child into the world and give him her name, which he would carry for a lifetime and which so many of us still carry today and others will carry as the years go by. It is an honorable name and one we can carry with pride.



I had finally learned who Grand-ma Lacy was. She was Priscilla Christina Burkett, daughter of Alexander Burkett and Anna (until recently) Unknown. We now know her name was Hicks and that she was part Seminole Indian. Alexander and Anna Burkett also had sons, John A., William H., Stephen, Alexander Jr., Prior Louis and George Washington.



Christina married John David Lacy in Florida or Alabama and they started their family there before moving westward to San Augustine County Texas where their other children were born. Simon Burkett had a total of ten half brothers and sisters.



We have learned as we’ve researched the Burkett family genealogy that Grand-ma Christina Burkett Lacy was, indeed, a brave pioneer wife and mother who, unflinchingly, endured hardships while rearing her large family and while she worked to make San Augustine County Texas what it is, today. In the book, “CRADLE OF TEXAS”, a pictorial history of San Augustine County, there is a picture of Christina with the caption, Christina Burkett Lacy, mother of Simon Burkett, Seminole Indian from Florida.

Augustine, Co., Texas. He was born May 19, 1873 in Marion Co., Miss., and died 1948.

Notes for Elizabeth "Lizzie" Jane Burkett:

Elizabeth Jane Burkett Ponder died shortly after the birth of her last child, Clarence E. J. Ponder in December 21,

1918. He was her eleventh child. She was 43 years old. Elizabeth was the daughter of Simon Peter Burkett and

Edna Cook. Edna had died at a young age, leaving five children, the youngest being Simon Henry Burkett, my

husbands father, who was just five years old at the time of his mother's death. So many women died in those

difficult times, many of them during or right after child birth. How sad! After Elizabeth's death, her husband,

Thomas Jefferson Ponder married a widow, Pearly Jarrell who already had five children. They soon added two

more, making a total of eighteen.....then two more. When the youngest was still a baby, Pearly died. Jeff then

married another widow, Elizabeth Woodard who had a grown daughter. Unfortunately Elizabeth soon died and

he married another widow who had five children. Her name was Clara Lucas. Alricks says they never heard much

about the Ponders as he was growing up. I'm sure the reason was that they moved farther away and the fact that

his dad's sister

Elizabeth Jane had died at such a young age.

McKinney Beard and Melissa Jane Burkett Beard were, at last, able to lay their son to rest in the family

cemetery in Broaddus, San Augustine Co., Texas.

 

After the death of Bruce Beard, his widow Oneida was married to Orvis Beard, one of Bruce's cousins,

on August 28, 1946. At this time, they are residing in Nederland, Texas, both in their eighties. She was

very cordial and helpful when I spoke with her on the phone and offered any help she and Orvis might be

able to provide in the continuation of the Burkett-Beard genealogy research. In doing family research,

finding people such as she is a pleasure.

Notes for Martha Devillie Jeffers:

During the time Alricks was in the Navy, during World War II, Juana and I lived in a small travel trailer in his

parents back yard. I have many memories of those years but have laughed more about this incident than anything

I

ever remember happening. My mother-in-law kept her quilts in a large quilt box, which my brother Gene had built

for her. The box was in a hallway between the bedrooms and the phone was on a small shelf above it. She never

kept a light on in the hallway---she always made a dash for her perch on the quilt box. This time she forgot she

had taken all the quilts out to sun , that being the custom in those days. The lid was up and into the box she went--

-

flat on her back with her feet sticking upward, against the end of the box. She began calling my father-in-law,

Henry----she pronounced it Han-ry. In the dark hallway he passed her by but finally found her and began trying to

pull her out. He had trouble getting her out---he was laughing so hard. All the while the operator was repeatedly

saying, operator, operator. He never bothered to explain to her what had happened. I can imagine, she often

wondered what had happened.

Burkett.

at the home of her Jeffers grandparents in Browndel, Jasper Co., Texas. The parents were griefstricken at

to their home a few miles away. She remained with her parents and Henry returned home and moved

 

their household belongings to one of the Jeffers rental properties near their home. It was at the Jeffers

 

home that their next child, Hattie Pauline was born in the year 1913.

Beaumont, Jefferson Co., Texas (Baptist Hospital).

Notes for Hattie Pauline Burkett:

 

 Hattie Pauline Burkett was the third child of Simon Henry Burkett and Martha Devillie Jeffers Burkett. She was

born at the home of her Jeffers Grandparents--- the home we refer to as "the old place" beside Mill Creek at

Browndell.

 

 At the age of twenty one, on July 25, 1934 she was married to Eugene Peavy Boyett in Bon wier, Texas. They

became the parents of a little daughter Barbara Jean on September 23, 1938. Barbara was a beautiful and very

special child, the only grandchild of the Boyett Grandparents. She was the "pride and joy" of the Burkett and

Boyett families but was especially doted on by her aunt, Ruby Ray Boyett.

 

 Only God knows why but Barbara's life was very short. She was burned in a tragic accident at the home of her

Burkett Grandparents and died on the day she would have been nineteen months old.

 

This is an acrostic poem I wrote, in remembrance of our "Little Angel"

.

 

 

 Barbara Our Little Princess

 

 

 Barbara our darling, we cherished you so,

All our love, on you we bestowed.

Rosy cheeked cherub with eyes all aglow,

Boyett and Burkett granddaughter we all doted on.

Always happy, you were a joy to me. I,

Ruby, your aunt, who was teaching you to sing.

And never dreaming what the future would bring.

 

 

 Just when we felt everything was fine,

Even then, God knew there was limited time.

And that all the family would soon be in grief,

Nothing to do but weep and cry....for you as the lonely days passed by.

 

 

 Beautiful darling, you so soon would be gone,

Only memories of you, would linger on.

Your Mommy and Daddy,were left alone.

Ever so lonely, in an empty home.

Then two little boys came to fill that space, but

That didn't mean they could take your place
