Judge Newark Lincoln BURTON, help please
« on: Sunday 14 January 07 12:23 GMT (UK) »
Newark BURTON was my great-uncle.  I know that this California Death Index entry is his as my mother just found an in memoriam card.

NEWARK LINCOLN BURTON
Birth:  28 Jul 1867 - OTHER COUNTRY
Death:  22 Dec 1942 - LOS ANGELES

He called himself Newark Burton until some time after he went to the USA (I think in 1891 to Ohio).   His mother was Jane Ann Mary Maria LINCOLN.  There was a family tradition that we were related by marriage to Abraham LINCOLN but I think it unlikely as my LINCOLNs do not seem to come from Norfolk (where the President's family hailed from).  Maybe he added the name as it sounded good, maybe there is some connection.

I thought someone once said that he was a judge in Philadelphia.  This could be true as he was 75 when he died and could have retired to California.

I cannot find him in any USA censuses on Ancestry, except a possible stenographer in Ohio.  Are there any lists of Judges?  I think he was quite important as another funeral card, now lost, mentioned a funeral procession with many black horses!

Any help gratefully received.

Hi Penelope
I have found "a" Newark Burton on Passenger lists index 1500-1900, indicating he was going to Ohio in 1891.\
(Appears to be what you have already)

His permanent entry # is 1733852
Source is quoted as "NATURALIZATIONS." In The Colorado Genealogist. Vol. 37:2 (Summer 1976), pp.54-57,59.
The annotation quotes that records were copied from naturalization packets at the National Archives of the U.S. District Court, housed at the Federal Center in Denver, Colorado, location No. 468350. Gives packet designations, new citizen's names, origins or birthplaces, counties in which papers were filed, dates papers were filed, lists of documents contained in the packet.

Mention of Ohio.....
1887-1892 Columbus Ohio Directory
Burton, Newark, boards at 280 21 st.
Works at Harrison, Old & Henderson.

Mention of Colorado.....
1893 Denver Directory
Burton, Newark L, stenographer
Employed by: Morrison, DeSoto & Macon
residence: 225 11th ave w, Denver

1897 Denver Directory
Burton, Newark L, Lawyer at 504 Equitable Building.
residence 1635 Marion, Denver.

He becomes very elusive after that date.  If only we could locate him on the 1900 census......

Hope this information helps in some small way.

What about contacting the Los Angeles Public Library and seeing if you can get an obit for him.

http://www.lapl.org/

It should be no problem, since you have an exact date of death. An obituary might give more information and a place to look farther.

Thank you both - Valerie, you are a star!!  This is so exciting!

I will have a look at Denver; pretty sure that must be him.  Didn't the little lad from Yorkshire do well? 

I have a death notice for him, but will try for obits as well - have not found any using Ancestry. 

I HAVE to do other stuff with the kids now, but will resume the hunt tomorrow.  I have never tried to research anyone in the US before, so a steep learning curve?

Thank youfor your help!

The In Memoriam card gives:

SERVICES FROM
McMillan Funeral Chapel

CLERGYMAN OFFICIATING
Rev David F Barnett, Jr
Moneta Presbyterian Church

FINAL RESTING PLACE
Roosevelt Memorial Park

The latter has a website.

I wonder whether it is possible that they would have any information at this late stage?

Can one get US death certificates in the same way as we can here?

Just putting my ideas down, I find it helps me and may help others on a similar quest if anyone replies.

Hi
I've sent a quick email to Denver Library asking if they indeed hold Naturalization Records, and how to obtain the same, if they do.
Fingers crossed.

Thanks, Valerie

That was another question I was going to ask, following from the detail in your first post.

Any idea about getting US death certs?

As you can see, I have not tidied our rooms, but searched away, emailed the Roosevelt Memorial Park etc.

Best wishes

I have also trawled through pages and pages of 1900 US census records, with no luck.  There is a newal (but illegible) Burton in Denver, but his birthdate is clearly 1853 so does not seem to fit.
