Joseph and Jane Burnside
had two other children, Ocie and Evie, the first and third born that came
down with diphtheria, died and were buried in West Hamlin, Lincoln Co.
WV. A definite date cannot be determined but was estimated by Tacy
to have been about 1875 or 1876, as she remembered her Father, Mother and
other members of the family tell the story of their move
from Raleigh County via wagon train to Lincoln County. She said that her Father contacted ague, due to the low altitude of the country and had to return to the high healthful mountains of Raleigh County, where the rest of the family was born with the exception of Gracie Pearl, who was born in Fayette County.
