Hattie Mae was the wife of Seibert Burgin. She was born on Feb. 11, 1891 in Shelbyville, Kentucky. She died on May 21, 1959 in Jefferson county, Kentucky. I do not have her parents name. The daughter of her brother Mark told me that the mother of Hattie Mae, Mark and Robert passed away, and the father couldn't care for all the children so they were given away. There may have been more children also. Both Hattie Mae and her brother Robert are listed as servants on the 1900 census in Shelbyville, Shelby, Kentucky. Hattie Mae and her brother Mark were reunited 40 years later. I would welcome more family information.
