  • Notes 
    • The 1940 census lists Lawrence "S" Burkey, 29, living with his wife "Vergie," 28, and the following children: Joseph M, 5; Helen E, 2; John M, 1; and a nephew, "Davie E," 1. Also in the home were his brother George V. Burkey, 26, and sister Gladys Overmeyer, 30. Lawrence, George and Gladys were all born in MN; Vergie and the children were all born in Ohio. Lawrence was a machinist for an auto parts company; George was a machinist working for a flooring manufacturing co., and Gladys was an office manager for perhaps the same flooring manufacturer. 1940 U.S. Census, Franklin Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH; ED 25-19 (T 627, Roll 3068, stamped p. 362B). [The census taker's handwriting makes the "e," at the end of Vergie, Davie, and George, look like an "a."]
    • A burial notice in The Columbus [OH] Dispatch, p. 9-D (21 Aug 1994) states:
      "Burkey - Lawrence F., 83, Aug. 19; service 10 a.m. Monday [22 Aug], burial Dublin Cemetery...."
