Record 26 Name: Claude Bordeleau Website: Genealogy of the Bordeleau families Referred by: Just Surfed On In From: Kingston, Ontario, Canada Time: 1999-09-13 17:44:25 Comments: BURDELOW family: I saw today the mention of Sadie BURDELOW on the page of the First United Methodist cemetery. Burdelow is probably the married name of Sadie, but I don't know her maiden name. She is said to have been born in 1878 and died in 1957 in Poinsett county. I suspect she is related to the BURDELOW/BORDELEAU families of Knox county, Indiana, who are distant cousins of mine. Is there anything more known on this Sadie Burdelow that would help me establish if she is part of our family tree? If this sounds familiar, I would love to hear from you. I shall look forward to your kind reply. Claude Bordeleau Kingston, Ontario
