In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.
“Charles Morris Burk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Burk, Nashville; grandson of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Burk and C. W. Head.”
- Robert A. Burk and Eloise Head were married 17 October 1925 in Williamson County, Tennessee. [Source: “Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002,” Burk-Head (1925); online database with images, Ancestry.com, (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 16 Dec 2011).]
- Robert A. and Ellise Head are found in the 1930 census in Nashville, Tennessee; there are no children in the household. [Source: 1930 U.S. census, Davidson County, Tennessee, population schedule, Nashville, Enumeration District (ED) 214, p. 11-A, dwelling 218, family 237, Robert A.
