Joseph Lytle Burgin – Tombstone Tuesday

Joseph Lytle Burgin headstone

Joseph Lytle Burgin was born 30 Aug 1846, probably in McDowell County, North Carolina.  He appeared on the 1850 and 1860 censuses in the household of his parents, Merritt Burgin and Susannah Adeline Lytle.  He died 23 Mar 1927 in Old Fort, North Carolina.

Sometime before 1880, he married Dulcina and had two children, Mollie G. and James Alonzo. (They may have had more children; I have not researched this family extensively.)

Joseph died on 23 Mar 1927.  He had gangrene in his left leg and foot, caused by diabetes.  He is buried at Bethel-Cherry Springs Cemetery in McDowell County.

Joseph was the grandson of John Burgin and Elizabeth Mann (my fifth great-grandparents) and of Thomas Lytle and Jennie McEntire (my fourth great-grandparents).
